How is Civil different from other herbal sleep aids?

When we began taking our sleep seriously, we began to research natural sleep aids. We were shocked to discover that the most popular active ingredients—the sedative valerian and the hormone melatonin—aren’t proven safe for long term use and don’t promote healthy sleep.

That’s why we made it our mission to formulate a natural sleep support for everyone, that’s safe to use every night. Working closely with scientists, we insisted on a simple chamomile and CBD based formula that would promote high-quality sleep with no hangovers or harmful side effects.

Is Civil Vegan?

Yes! Everything that goes into Civil is natural and plant-based.

Is Civil okay for pregnant and nursing mothers?

To create Civil, we went through the strictest process imaginable to make it the safest natural sleep aid possible. That said, there isn’t a lot of research on CBD’s effect on pregnant and nursing moms, so it’s best to check with your doctor.

Will Civil knock me out?

Knocking you out would definitely not be Civil. One of the biggest problems with prescription sleep drugs and herbal sleep aids like valerian is that they provide sedation, and sedation isn’t sleep. When you sedate yourself, you block your ability to experience the health, happiness, and healing benefits of healthy sleep. And that’s not what we’re about.

What is broad spectrum CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the hemp plant. The difference between Broad- and Full Spectrum CBD is small but significant. Full Spectrum CBD keeps all the plant’s cannabinoids intact, including the psychoactive compound THC. Broad Spectrum CBD leaves out the THC.

What are the ingredients in Civil?

Chamomile and CBD are Civil’s main ingredients—a botanical dream team for healthy, high-quality sleep. Civil’s supporting ingredients are Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Madagascar Vanilla, Organic Lavender Extract, and our Civil Terpene Blend. Used for many decades to flavor foods, terpenes are well-researched and FDA-approved plant compounds that safely enhance the benefits of CBD.

How should I take it?

Shake well before each use. Take one full dropper of Civil at the same time each day, 1-2 hours before bedtime, if possible.

Is it okay to take Civil during the day?

We created Civil to help solve the sleep epidemic, and each bottle has 30 servings for about a month of civilized sleep. However, it’s fine to use Civil to relax. All our ingredients are safe to take any time of day.
