Can CBD help you sleep?

The lifestyle most of us live today is not the best for sleep. Many even use over the counter and prescribed solutions for their lack of sleep, depending on how severe it affects them. When hemp and CBD derived hemp became legal across America in 2018, people seeking a natural solution to their sleep issues began experimenting with CBD as a sleep aid. After years of research and widespread anecdotal evidence, can we say that CBD helps you sleep?

The Importance of Sleep

First, let’s dive into why sleep is important before we dig into how CBD can help. Your brain and body deal with a lot of stress during the day. Without proper sleep, you won’t be able to unwind those stresses. Do this long enough and you can get yourself in a state of chronic fatigue, lack of focus, and even mood disorders. It is very difficult dealing with sleeping disorders like insomnia, sleep apnea, or narcolepsy. With proper sleep, you will mentally feel on top of your game, and physically be at heights – with less likelihood of disease and increased energy. 

 

How CBD affects the body?

CBD affects your body by binding to your endocannabinoid system, which is just a big fancy word for the network of receptors throughout your body that cannabinoids can activate. This system helps keep certain physiological functions in balance such as mood regulation, appetite, and sleep. THC binds to the cannabinoid receptors directly, which causes the intoxication feeling people experience with marijuana. On the other hand, CBD works indirectly with the endocannabinoid system by blocking some receptors, while promoting your body’s production of Anandamide – the body’s bliss chemical.

 

Is there evidence for CBD helping you sleep?

Besides the mountain of anecdotal evidence that you can hear from regular CBD users, there has been clinical studies conducted that support the use of CBD for sleep. For Example, a study out of Colorado in 2019 tracked over 100 adults and found that most had decreased anxiety and better sleep within the first month of the trial.

 

How to know what CBD helps you sleep best?

When looking for a CBD product to help you sleep, there are two things to keep in mind.

First, you must know which delivery of CBD is right for you. Some enjoy a liquid tincture that they can drop under their tongue or mix with their drinks. Others may enjoy consuming their CBD in gummy form or even smoking or vaping their CBD. You will know which suits your lifestyle best, especially after a little experimentation.

Second, you must know if you are getting CBD isolate or a cannabinoid profile product. A CBD isolate product is made from pure CBD extract, which makes the product taste better and cheaper. The con of CBD isolate is that it is not as effective as a cannabinoid profile product. Cannabinoid profile products contain a blend of different cannabinoids, which compound and enhance their effects. Most cannabinoid profile products will say either “broad spectrum”, “full spectrum”, or have some sort of ratio to tell you which cannabinoids they put together.

The best CBD product we have for sleep is our Wild Hemp CBD Sleep Tincture. Not only is it made form the highest quality Oregon sourced broad spectrum CBD oil, it has terpenes in it that enhance its affect. You can learn more about them by clicking here.
