Lazarus Naturals won the Drug Store News/ECRM Buyers’ Choice Award for its CBD Fruit Tarts at ECRM’s Hemp/CBD Health and Beauty Care Session held this month. Sandland Sleep was a finalist for its Stay Asleep Pills.
The products were selected from dozens of entries submitted by participating suppliers. Buyers were able to evaluate each entry and cast their votes based on product packaging and innovation via the Drug Store News-branded Buyers’ Choice Awards section of the ECRM Connect platform.
“The stress and anxiety from the events of the past year have sparked broader interest in the CBD segment,” said “Craig Chmielowicz, senior vice president of health and beauty care at ECRM. “The two winners have developed innovative CBD products with clean and natural ingredients to help consumers address their wellness needs.”

Sandland specializes in all-natural sleep aids developed to assist the body in restoring its natural ability to sleep. It uses only natural ingredients, including hemp-derived cannabinol, or CBN, to provide clean sleep with no hangover. CBN is a minor cannabinoid found in the hemp plant that is known to impact the body’s sleep reactors.
Its Stay Asleep pills are an extended-release, long-lasting sleep aid that contains hemp-derived CBN, melatonin, and other natural ingredients. Taken orally with a glass of water, the pills are designed to slowly impact the body, allowing for longer, more meaningful sleep with no grogginess or hangover.
