CBD And Sleep Disorders – Insomnia

Are you struggling to get enough good sleep each night? If so, you might consider cannabidiol, or CBD, as it is more commonly known. People have used it for a variety of ailments, including insomnia, anxiety, and pain. Does it actually help as well as purported?

Insomnia Is An Important Health Concern

For many, lack of proper sleep is just a way of life. People make jokes about it, and just keep going. However, insomnia and other sleep-related conditions can have a far-reaching effect on physical and mental health.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, has reported that one-third of adults in the country have inadequate sleeping habits. Most experts suggest that everyone needs a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night. If you count yourself among them, at least you know there are others in the same boat. However, it is essential that you address it in order to stave off chronic conditions associated with poor sleep, including diabetes, heart conditions, and mental health conditions.

The Research On CBD And Sleep

Kaiser Permanente has been studying CBD and sleep treatments. During the first month, subjects were able to sleep better due to the calming effects on the central nervous system.

How Is CBD Beneficial For Sleep Disorders?

The main reasons that people have difficulty sleeping are anxiety and stress disorders, as well as physical pain. CBD addresses all of these symptoms, allowing people to fall asleep and stay asleep more easily. The relaxing effect also reduces inflammation and helps the user to let go of physical and emotional distress.

However, even those whose sleep disorders aren’t related to these conditions can often find relief by using CBD products. Research has shown that CBD interacts with various receptors in the human body. Among those are the ones responsible for the natural sleep cycle.

Is CBD Better Than Sleep Drugs?

There can be several problems with taking prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids. For some, they are ineffective, while others can develop a dependence on the sleeping medication to go to sleep and stay asleep. Unlike these medications, CBD has few side effects, such as fatigue and changes in appetite. If you are experiencing sleep disruption, consider trying CBD as a lower-risk alternative to pharmaceuticals.

What’s In CBD Oil?

There are a variety of substances and carrier oils used on the market today including grapeseed extract, hemp seed oil, and MCT oil, just to name a few. CBD hemp oil is significantly different from regular hemp seed oil that you commonly find in grocery stores. Hemp seed oil, as the name implies, comes from the seeds only and does not contain CBD by itself. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is the star of our tinctures.

Hemp seed oil, however, is also a great nutritional supplement that contains vitamins, minerals, and Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids, which help our bodies better absorb the CBD. Because of these nutritional qualities, we use hemp seed oil as the carrier oil for our CBD, which ensures that you are getting a pure hemp product with essential nutrients in addition to CBD!

There are a lot of products on the market that are labeled as CBD oil, but may contain very little actual CBD, along with fillers and other substances that are not beneficial, and sometimes, potentially unhealthy. Read labels and make sure you know what’s in your bottle! 

Additionally, high quality and reputable CBD products should have independent third party test results available for consumers. Wilson Botanics provides a link to third party testing results right on the bottle.

Tips And Tricks For Using CBD

Use CBD to supplement other habits to boost your sleep equilibrium. Make sure that you don’t consume any caffeine for several hours prior to going to bed each night. Additionally, you need to avoid games, the internet, and other screen-time activities. Establish a routine, and stick to it. Other things to try are becoming more active and eating healthier fare.

Start with a small dose. You want to find the sweet spot of just how much you need, not overload your system. There is no need to take it when you aren’t in need. Unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effects and won’t get anyone “high.”

Those who have difficulty sleeping at night often find relief with CBD. Whether you have mental or emotional distress, this plant-based substance can help you to fall asleep and stay asleep each night. You are sure to feel well rested once you develop a healthy sleeping pattern!

Additional Tips To Overcome Insomnia

  • Eat Healthy
  • Exercise
  • Meditation
  • Prayer

In addition to the above lifestyle habits, we highly recommend reading the book, “The Power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Peale. It’s a great book to help reprogram your mind and way of thinking that can also help to relieve anxiety and insomnia. Individuals who can implement all of these practices along with quality CBD oil have a great chance of overcoming insomnia and other sleeping disorders.

Unlike prescription and OTC drugs, CBD takes awhile to affect and balance out your endocannabinoid system. Many people report not noticing the effects until a couple weeks or more of consistent use. But once they reach that level it usually makes a significant difference! Be sure to start slow and gradually increase until you find what works for you, and give it a good 2-4 weeks of consistent use before judging the results.

Good Luck!
