Valerian: the medicinal herb that helps you relax

A plant that should not be missing from the assortment of any herbalist is of course valerian (Valeriana officinalis). The calming properties of valerian have been known to humans for hundreds of years. Valerian is a medicinal plant with a calming effect on the nervous system. It literally tempers your nerves and helps you relax better. 

Valerian has been used as a medicine as early as ancient Greece as a natural sedative. It is derived from the Latin word 'valere', which means 'in good health'. 

Properties and effects of Valerian

Valerian is a beautiful plant and can grow about 1.5 meters high. It produces sweet-smelling white flowers. The used part of the plant is the root. This Valerian root has a very typical smell and contains several interesting contents that have a calming effect on the central nervous system. 

Valerian contains GABA and valerenic acid and certain alkaloids. GABA is a neurotransmitter with a known calming effect on the central nervous system. In Valerian, GABA interacts with other constituents to provide a calming effect that is also sleep-inducing.

One property of Valerian is it helps with sleep problems and promotes sleep. People without sleeping problems can also benefit from the effects of Valerian. Valerian can help with better sleep and help with falling asleep faster. 

Valerian is a traditional herbal remedy and Sirius sells it in its pure, dried form. Valerian root can be processed as a tea and drunk in the evening to calm down and get a good sleep. 

What is Valerian used for?

There are several conditions for which Valerian can be used as a natural sedative. Below is an overview of different conditions for which Valerian can be used.

  • Stress, fear and tension
  • Sleep problems
  • Tension headaches
  • ADHD
  • Obsessive-Compulsive disorder
  • Bowel Cramps
  • Menopause
  • Valerian and side effects

For some users, Valerian can have side effects. In any case, it is important not to use Valerian if you are going to drive a car or engage in a dangerous activity such as mountain climbing. 

Valerian may interact with certain medications and alcohol. If in doubt, consult a physician. 

CBD can provide less stress and more peace in your life

There are so many dietary supplements and natural tranquilizers on the market that many consumers don't know where to start. 

CBD can be the a safe and effective supplement for you: there are now countless stories of experience from users who benefit greatly from the relaxing properties of CBD.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a substance derived from the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychedelic and therefore you do not get stoned or high from this cannabinoid. 

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is a CBD extract supplemented with usually olive oil or hemp seed oil. In the smartshop of Sirius you can buy different kinds of CBD oil from different brands. For every user there is the ideal CBD oil, for example a light CBD percentage of 2.75% CBD

For users with severe (pain) complaints, it is often recommended to choose a strong CBD oil. Because of this, you only need to take a few drops of CBD oil to get immediate relief. An example of a strong CBD oil is Cibiday 25% CBD

Customers are very satisfied with calming properties of CBD oil

I regularly get a customer in front of me in the store who is looking for a CBD product to help calm down and fight pain. The reasons are varied. From customers who are taking heavy painkillers and would like to taper off, to students struggling with stress and anxiety issues. 

Why use CBD oil? 

CBD can be used for many different reasons and can improve the quality of life in many different ways. 

It can be a quest to find the right CBD oil. Our customer service will help you to choose the best CBD oil that suits you. For questions or comments about CBD oil, please contact us by calling or sending an email. 

Unfortunately we are not allowed to make any claims about CBD oil and the legislation is quite restrictive. Nevertheless, on the Internet you can find many stories of experience and testimonials of people who benefit greatly from the use of CBD oil for various applications. 

Some reasons to use CBD oil:

CBD can help with sleep problems

Many users who suffer from restless sleep or who have trouble falling asleep can benefit from CBD oil. Take a few drops of CBD oil before bedtime.

CBD can help with stress (also in animals)

Did you know that CBD can have a calming effect on the entire body? Cannabidiol acts on the endocannabinoid system and in this way can bring the whole body more into homeostasis. Stress throws your system out of balance, so it's a very smart idea to use CBD oil if you suffer from a lot of stress.

Stress also occurs in animals and CBD oil is also suitable to give to your pet. Sirius sells CBD oil that is also suitable for dogs and cats. 

Consult a veterinarian in case of doubt.

CBD oil and menstrual pain: suitable for women

Among women, CBD is an interesting product to use for menstrual pain. CBD oil can relieve all kinds of physical pain symptoms. Menstrual pain is something that almost all women have to deal with and can have a heavy impact on your daily functioning. CBD oil has already brought relief to many physical pains and is certainly also widely used as a natural pain reliever during menstruation. 

Grow your own CBD-rich Cannabis!

Want to take matters into your own hands and grow your own CBD-rich cannabis? While you can already buy CBD cannabis in many places, it's obviously even more fun and enjoyable if you know exactly what CBD product you're using. 

Sirius sells CBD cannabis seeds from several good cannabis seed brands such as Barney's Farm, Royal Queen Seeds and Grower's Choice. 

It's not difficult at all to grow CBD weed yourself and if you order your CBD cannabis seeds now, you're still in time to start this cannabis growing season! Don't forget to order sufficient plant nutrition in the Growshop as well.

Blue Lotus: smartshop herb with relaxing effect

Are you looking for a way to unwind in the evening? Blue Lotus is a wonderfully relaxing flower and helps to get into a meditative state. 

Blue lotus, also called Egyptian water lily, was a symbol of certain gods in Ancient Egypt and was revered as sacred. The symbol of blue lotus was found on several royal sites, such as on the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. This also further demonstrates the powerful value the Egyptians attributed to blue lotus. 

What are the effects of Blue Lotus?

The flower produces a psychoactive effect and produces a mild, dreamy high. For the Ancient Egyptians, blue lotus was also used as an aphrodisiac, helping them to enjoy sex more. 

Blue lotus also has sedative and sleep-inducing properties, making this flower perfect for use as a natural sedative. 

You can make a wonderfully aromatic tea from dried blue lotus. It is also possible to use blue lotus in a vaporizer or in a joint, either in combination with cannabis or not.
