If you lead an active lifestyle, or are looking for an energy boost – a good balance of supplements can help you along your journey. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has been linked with regulating sleep patterns whilst Vitamin C has been proven to reduce tiredness and fatigue especially, after exercise.
As far as how the cannabinoid CBD may affect sleep, some research indicates that this may interact with specific receptors, potentially affecting the sleep/wake cycle and helping you to achieve a longer, deeper sleep. Additionally, CBD will not make you drowsy as some suspect.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has many receptors throughout the body and by supporting your ECS with a regular supplement of CBD, you may help to manage some of the symptoms of stress. By also supporting your gut brain axis with the addition of a Biotic, you can help to maintain a healthy gut biome, something which is often affected by prolonged periods of stress and anxiety.
Studies suggest the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) may help to regulate inflammation and pain response in the body and due to the way that CBD interacts with your ECS, you may find that incorporating CBD into your lifestyle could have an impact on the inflammation often associated with injury.
Our CBD Capsules
fourfive CBD Capsules contain 10mg of CBD, making them easy to dose and convenient to take alongside your other daily supplements. The vegetable capsules are vegan friendly and also contain inulin which is a type of natural fiber produced by many plants, and has become a popular ingredient in a variety of nutritional supplements. It acts a prebiotic and provides additional benefits for your gut.
Taking CBD Capsules also means you can avoid the natural earthy taste of CBD oil which some don’t enjoy. The vegetable capsules breakdown quickly and easily in your gut, meaning the CBD can get to work sooner rather than later.

CBD Capsules FAQ's
Will CBD oil capsules get me high?
No. fourfive CBD Capsules don’t contain any traces of THC, which is the compound that causes cannabis’ euphoric effects. Even CBD Oil that does have THC is required by UK law to contain less than 0.2 percent of that compound, which isn’t nearly enough to intoxicate you.
How many CBD Oil capsules should I take?
There’s still no scientific consensus on the daily recommended dosage of CBD. Experts recommend starting with the lowest possible dose (i.e. one capsule) and seeing how your body feels. After you’ve given it some time, you can adjust your dose as necessary to see the results you want. That being said, the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends taking no more than 70 mg a day.
When should I take CBD Oil capsules?
Studies show that CBD works better when taken with fatty foods, since this helps dissolve the CBD molecules more effectively. Another thing to keep in mind: if you’re interested in CBD to help you sleep, you might want to take it in the morning or afternoon. As counter-intuitive as this sounds, studies show CBD’s sleep-promoting properties are due to its ability to help regulate your body’s sleep/wake cycle. In other words, scientists think it helps you stay more alert during the day, so you naturally feel more tired at night.
Where should I store my CBD Oil Capsules?
CBD molecules start to break down when exposed to light and heat, so it’s best to store your capsules in a cool, dark place (such as a medicine cabinet), just as you would with any other supplement.
