Could CBD be our new sleep saviour?
It’s World Sleep Day! The annual day to celebrate and shine a light on the issues that can cause us all to suffer from a bad night’s rest.
The experts have long been telling us all about the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. From our formative school years to getting those 8 hours of uninterrupted rest during the work week. Sleep is seen as one of the most essential but often overlooked necessities in one’s life.
Have you ever tried your best to sleep, knowing you are tired, but whatever the number of sheep you get up to, you just can’t get any decent shut eye?
CBD could be the botanical answer to our prayers.
There are many factors that may be preventing you from being able to sleep.
Anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression are known to cause sleep disruption.
Those taking medication may also notice disturbances in their sleeping patterns. Furthermore, people who suffer from physical conditions, such as chronic pain and restless leg syndrome, may also be all too familiar with sleepless nights.
Research into the effects of CBD is still at an early stage, with up to 100 clinical trials currently underway. Some of which look at insomnia and mental health, which include sleep.
What we know so far is that CBD may help to treat anxiety. In a study published in 2019 which looked at CBD use against anxiety linked to sleep, 67% of patients reported a better sleeping pattern after one month of taking a CBD supplement.
Another study showed evidence to suggest that CBD helps to soothe discomfort.
Try our CBD oil drops and keep track of your sleep pattern and dose.
For the best results, take the drops under the tongue before going to bed. If you are finding this is not helping, try taking it earlier in the evening. Your body may need some time for it to take effect.
