CBD and Sleep

There’s nothing more frustrating than tossing and turning in your bed, unable to get any sleep – especially when you have an important day ahead of you. Over 50 million adults in the US alone struggle with a sleep disorder of some kind, and that number doesn’t even account for the individuals who experience sleep depravation, anxiety, and sleep loss due to chronic pain on a regular basis.

If you’re looking to get a better night’s sleep but hoping to avoid prescription sleeping aids, you might want to take a look at cannabidiol, also known as CBD.*

What is CBD?

CBD is the compound naturally found in the cannabis plant. The non-psychoactive cousin to THC, CBD can’t get you high. Instead, when ingested, CBD gets to work on your body’s endocannabinoid system. Our body’s endocannabinoid system is in charge of regulating sleep patterns, appetite and general mood. Our bodies already produce cannabinoids in its regulation of emotion and sleep – ingesting CBD can trigger the release of more.*

What does CBD do?

In addition to triggering the release of cannabinoids, CBD also works with the nervous system to intercept the transmission of pain signals in the body. It also influences the release of specific hormones and enzymes that can aid in digestive health and cognitive function.

So what does this have to do with sleep?

CBD has been used for centuries to help weary folks get a good nights sleep.* How exactly?

CBD Can Help Manage Anxiety

Stress of any kind can negatively impact your ability to fall asleep or maintain healthy sleep cycles. In fact, one of the leading symptoms of anxiety disorders is insomnia. Stress can also lead to feelings of perpetual fatigue and restlessness.

Whether you’re living with an anxiety disorder or just experiencing stress at work, stress can keep you nervous system activated during the hours your body is trying to rest. CBD works with your body’s nervous and endocannabinoid systems to stimulate the production of hormones that can aid in mood regulation, making you feel calm, relaxed and ready to catch some Zzzz’s.*

CBD Stabilizes Sleep Patterns

CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which plays a huge role in regulating sleep patterns. This means that CBD can also help stabilize how you sleep. CBD can help enable longer periods of undisrupted sleep. This helps you feel more rested even with fewer actual sleep hours logged. Some research indicates that CBD may even promote more REM sleep – the type of deep sleep that gives you the rest your body really craves.*

CBD Can Alleviate Chronic Pain

If you’ve ever tried to sleep through the night with a persistent ache or a sharp pain, you know it’s no easy feat. Chronic pain can impact sleep directly, and over time can even lead to the development of sleep disorders. CBD intercepts the transmission of pain signals by muffling pain receptors in the brain. Prized for its pain-relieving properties, CBD has been used for centuries to treat chronic pain. It’s proven especially beneficial for hard-to-treat cases like muscle spasms, arthritis and neuralgia. With pain finally silenced, sleep is soon to follow.*
