Sleep well and your life will blossom
A master at making flowers is a master at making soil.
In order for beautiful flowers to bloom in our lives, we need a good sleep environment that supports sleep.
We, Kikuya, propose a better way to sleep from Japan.
Industrial revolution using hemp
We humans have experienced three industrial revolutions in the past 500 years.
The first industrial revolution using coal and coke in the 18th century.
The second industrial revolution using oil and naphtha in the 19th century, and then,
The third industrial revolution using nuclear power and uranium that could lead to the destruction of mankind in the 20th century.
And now, in the 21st century, mankind is on the cusp of the fourth and greatest industrial revolution.
It is an industrial revolution that utilizes hemp, a plant resource, and is friendly to humans and the earth.
Sleep revolution using hemp
“Sleep” was treated with reverence as an absolute necessity and the only gateway to the sacred.
However, since the “industrial revolution” of the 18th century, it has fallen victim to the quest for progress and productivity.
Edison, the leader of the industrial revolution, even said, “It’s foolish to sleep. I’ll sleep a lot after I die.”
For a while, we thought that we humans ruled over nature, but the time has come when we realize that we are living under the providence of nature.
If we do not get enough sleep, we will suffer terrible repercussions.
If we sleep poorly, we will not be happy.
Let us cherish our sleep.
Now that the fourth hemp industrial revolution is happening, let us start the sleep revolution ourselves.
Hemp changes your sleep
Hemp a plant resource, is a sustainable, human- and earth-friendly resource with more than 25,000 effective ways to make people happy, unlike fossil fuels .
Hemp is a plant that is kind to people and the earth.
Hemp, which has been familiar with people’s lives since the Jomon period 10,000 years ago in Japan, is a natural material that matches the three “S”. The “three S’s” are Soil, Soul, and Society.
Hemp is also great for the “natural environment”.
It grows quickly without pesticides and has more than 25,000 uses.
In Japan, hemp is deeply related to religious beliefs, and has become the heart of the people.
If you use hemp, which is the heart of your heart, for bedding, you should be able to sleep soundly with peace of mind.
By using hemp, which is a material for restful sleep, the quality of sleep is improved because hemp has the following characteristics.
