How can CBD help me sleep during Sleeptember?
Sleeptember is here! The annual campaign raises awareness of the importance of sleep and tackles sleep issues. Could CBD help in your quest for rest?
Does CBD really help you sleep and how does it work?
Sleep issues are the third biggest cause of stress in the UK, but ironically stress itself can be exactly what triggers a bad sleeping routine.
When stressed and anxious, adrenaline levels become heightened and heart rate increases, causing the body to stay alert and awake. CBD can help to alleviate stress and therefore aid sleep.
Aches and pains can also disrupt sleep. CBD is often used for pain relief because of its natural anti-inflammatory properties. Alleviating pain that causes you to toss and turn could help you fall into a comfortable sleep.
High and fluctuating temperatures are another barrier to a restful night. CBD affects the TRPV1 receptors which are not only responsible for regulating pain and inflammation but also our body temperature.
How do you take CBD for sleep?
We recommend taking CBD oil drops under the tongue before bed for best results. If you do this but find you are still wide awake for some time, try taking it earlier in the evening. Your body may need a little more time for it to take effect.
We are giving FREE CBD oil samples with every order throughout September, along with a sleep tracker and tips card to help you identify if CBD has helped you. Visit our shop HERE. Sleep well!
