CBD for Sleep: Understanding the Science Behind Its Effectiveness

Let’s talk about something that’s just as important as our morning coffee – SLEEP!

As we age, getting quality sleep becomes more important than ever. Not only does it affect our energy levels and mood, but it also impacts our overall health and can increase the risk of certain diseases.

Stress, anxiety, and various other factors can disrupt sleep, leading to fatigue, low energy levels, and an overall decrease in quality of life. That’s where CBD comes in as a possible solution to improve your sleep.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant that has been shown to have several potential health benefits, including promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Many people have turned to CBD as a natural remedy for sleep issues, and research suggests that it may be effective in helping you get a good night’s rest.

How does CBD Affect Sleep?

CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating various physiological processes, including sleep. Studies have shown that CBD can interact with receptors in the brain that are involved in regulating sleep and wake cycles, which may help improve sleep quality and reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep.

CBD has also been shown to have anxiolytic properties, meaning that it can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. This can be particularly helpful if you struggle to “turn your brain off” and relax so you can go to sleep at night.

How do I use CBD for sleep?

The optimal CBD dosage for improving sleep varies from person to person, and is not necessarily linked to body weight or sex. It’s more like coffee: some people can have an espresso after dinner and fall asleep that night while others would be buzzing until 3AM. If you’re new to CBD for wellness, we recommend starting with a low dose of CBD and gradually increasing until you get the effects you need.

One thing to note is that a side effect of taking too much CBD is sleepiness, so people tend to take higher doses at night to fall & stay asleep, and lighter doses during the day to reduce stress without sleepiness.

I’s also important to note why you’re not sleeping. For example, if your sore shoulder wakes you up whenever you move at night, using a topical CBD solution may be a good option either in place of or in addition to an oral/edible solution.

What else can I do to get better sleep?

Make sure you’re not sabotaging your sleep during the day, creating the optimal environment for you to rest, and generally having good sleep hygiene are great places to start.

So if you struggle to fall or stay asleep, or suffer from low quality sleep, all leading to making you feel sluggish or moody during the day, we see you. And we’re here to help! Contact us to get personalized advice on how you can improve your sleep with CBD.

Remember: the keys to optimal health are good sleep, a healthy gut, and low inflammation. Manage these, and you’ll enjoy a better quality of life.
