CBD for Sleep
Can CBD be the secret to sweet dreams
Poor sleep quality just doesn't make you tired or experience a lack of energy. It also has a negative effect on your health, such as being more accident prone, less focused (mom brain), assorted heart disease conditions, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke.
Lack of sleep can also kill your libidio and can increase depression symptoms.
Bottom line: Lack of sleep is no bueno.
One of the anecdotal benefits of CBD has been to help improve sleep, but how?
Let's discuss the anecdotal reasons why CBD helps with sleep and then the up and coming research.
The belief is that CBD responds to our endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Your ECS modulates our circadian rhythms which regulates your sleep and wake cycles.
Medical science is beginning to study CBD for sleep. Early studies have found that CBD is effective for anxiety which in turns helps longer sleep durations.
“To the extent that pain or anxiety interferes with sleep, CBD may facilitate sleep by reducing pain or anxiety, this would be an indirect mechanism,” said Jamie Corroon, ND, MPH, medical advisor at CV Sciences.
Many CBD oil users report that it helps ease anxiety and relaxes the body, making it easier to fall asleep.
"This is a staple in my house. It helps with anxiety and allows me to relax and sleep." Naturally Mignon Customer Christy Ferdon
"Helps so much with my anxiety during the day and makes it easier to fall asleep at night." Naturally Mignon Customer Paula Deyette
It also must be noted that the FDA has not approved CBD as a sleep aid and more studies will continue to be done.
The best way for you to decide if CBD for sleep is to try a nightly CBD oil regimen. It is best to start out with a higher dose like our 2000mg Naturally Mignon Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Try a full dropper at night before bedtime and see if CBD improves the quality of your sleep.
