How CBD can help you to sleep

Getting a good night's sleep is important for your health and mood, as well as for memory development and staying focused during the day.

Resting correctly to have energy is essential, but unfortunately some people may have difficulty falling asleep and therefore not be at 100% of their abilities.

Studies carried out show that up to 70% of the western population does not sleep enough for their age and almost a third of adults sleep less than 6 hours a day, when they should sleep between 7 and 9.

It is well known that there are medications to help you sleep better (sleeping pills being the most common) but recently the use of CBD for this purpose is becoming very popular.

Cannabis and cannabinoids

Of the more than 100 cannabinoids discovered, researchers have mainly focused on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), these being the best known and appearing to have the greatest impact on humans.

THC is the compound that produces the effects of "high" or "being stoned", but what exactly is CBD?

What is cannabidiol (CBD) and how does it work?

CBD does not have the same psychoactive characteristics as THC and therefore does not have the same effects.

To this we must add the fact that CBD has no side effects or causes addiction, this being the main reason why it has gained great popularity, in addition to knowing that its use can provide a wide variety of advantages for our health.

Among its benefits are its calming effect on the nervous system and its relationship with the generation and reuptake of seretonin that directly affects mood. These effects may vary from person to person and will obviously be influenced by the dose of consumption.

What is the role of CBD in helping us sleep?

Research into the effects of CBD on sleep disorders is ongoing, and people who use it to relieve chronic pain report that it helps them relax and rest better.

In the case of anxiety, even without being a sleep disorder in itself, it can influence a poor quality of sleep due to constant intrusive thoughts and the difficulty that this entails in order to disconnect.

By relieving nervous system activation, CBD can be very helpful in helping people with anxiety disorders to fall asleep optimally. According to a study carried out, more than 80% of people who took CBD to treat anxiety reported reduced levels of the disorder and the quality of sleep increased by 65%.

Given the benefits of CBD in treating anxiety, it is suggested that CBD could also help with more disorders such as insomnia.

CBD and REM sleep

People with THC addiction often have difficulty entering deep sleep (REM), having difficulty resting properly and being more prone to nightmares.

On the contrary, the consumption of CBD has been shown to have a relaxing effect, helping to reconcile a restful sleep, and even helping with THC addiction.
