CBD to unwind

If you have trouble falling asleep, CBD and CBG may (potentially) be the best option for you.

CBD oil

 Cannabidiol (CBD) has gained popularity as a treatment for a variety of health problems, including sleep disorders. In this article, we explore how CBD can affect sleep and what research supports its use as a sleep aid.

What is CBD?

CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another compound found in the cannabis plant, CBD has no psychoactive properties and will not make you feel 'high'. CBD has long been used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety and epilepsy.

CBD and sleep

Sleep is a complex process that is affected by a variety of factors. Studies have shown that CBD can affect sleep in a number of ways. One way CBD can improve sleep is by reducing anxiety. Anxiety is a common factor that disrupts sleep. CBD can reduce anxiety by affecting activity in certain areas of the brain that are associated with anxiety. One study found that CBD can reduce anxiety in people with generalised anxiety disorders.

CBD may also affect sleep duration. One animal study found that CBD increased the amount of time mice slept. Another study found that CBD can improve sleep quality. Study participants who took CBD reported improved sleep quality and fewer interruptions during the night.

How to take CBD to improve sleep?

If you are considering taking CBD to help with sleep, there are several options available. CBD oil is the most common way to consume CBD. CBD oil is administered orally and can be mixed with food or drink. It is important to note that CBD oil can take up to two hours to take effect, so it is best to take it beforehand.

Another way to consume CBD is through capsules*. CBD capsules are a convenient way to take CBD, as they come in pre-measured doses. However, capsules can take longer to take effect than CBD oil.

Is it safe to take CBD for sleep?

CBD is generally considered safe for most people. However, there may be some side effects. Common side effects include fatigue, diarrhoea and appetite changes. It can also interact with some medications, so it is important to talk to your doctor before taking CBD if you are taking any prescription drugs.

It is important to remember that CBD is not a cure for sleep disorders, but a science-based natural remedy.

Sleep is a fundamental activity for the health of our body and lack of sleep can have negative consequences on our physical and mental well-being. Sleep disorders are very common and can be caused by different factors, including stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and many others. In this article, we will focus on how CBD can help improve sleep and treat sleep disorders.

CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant and has become one of the most popular natural alternatives for treating various health conditions, including sleep disorders. Unlike THC, another compound found in the cannabis plant, CBD has no psychoactive properties, which means it won't get you high or affect your ability to carry out your daily activities.

The endocannabinoid system and sleep

To understand how CBD can affect sleep, it is first important to understand the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is responsible for regulating a number of bodily functions, including sleep. The ECS is made up of cannabinoid receptors, which are found in different parts of the body, including the brain.

Cannabinoid receptors are involved in the regulation of circadian rhythms, which are the cycles of activity and rest that regulate our sleep. These circadian rhythms are essential for regulating the quality and duration of sleep. Studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system is involved in the regulation of sleep, and that lack of activity in this system can contribute to sleep disorders.

How CBD can help improve sleep

CBD has been shown to have a number of properties that can help improve sleep and treat sleep disorders. Some of these properties include:

  • Stress and anxiety reduction: Stress and anxiety are two of the main causes of sleep disorders. CBD has been shown to have anxiolytic and antidepressant effects, which can help reduce anxiety and stress and improve sleep.
  • Improves sleep quality: CBD can also help improve sleep quality by increasing the time we spend in the deep sleep and REM sleep phases. These phases are essential for the restoration and regeneration of the body.
  • Reduces pain: Chronic pain can disrupt sleep and reduce sleep quality. CBD has been shown to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce pain and improve sleep quality.
  • Improves mood: CBD can also improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression, which can contribute to better sleep.

*In Spain only the external use of CBD is regulated and it is the only one we recommend for our products.
