CBD for Sleep and Insomnia

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Tossing and turning?

Here’s your solution.

Many studies have proven that CBD has been found to hold many health benefits for symptoms like insomnia. Differing from THC, CBD does not give you the feeling or effects of a “high.” As CBD interacts with receptors CB1 and CB2 in your brain, the cannabinoids attach to these cells — causing various effects that promote better sleeping habits, as well as many other health benefits in general.

Now, here’s the evidence:

A study my Medicines took 409 people who experience insomnia and regular troubles sleeping at night. This data was collected from June 2016 to May 2018 — a 2 year period. On average, these people rated their bad sleeping problems to be a 6.6/10. This experiment used THC cannabis flower consisting of several cannabinoids. Although the participants experienced much better sleep, it was hard to determine whether the relief of their sleeping problems were due to the CBD or a differing cannabinoid in the THC. Although, the participants rated their sleep issues to be a 2.2/10 on average — resulting in a decrease of 4.5. This goes to show that possibly a higher dosage of CBD oil that contains high amounts of cannabinoids that are promoting easier sleep might be best for you to get a good night’s rest.

CBD comes in various forms that you are able to consume. Although it is extracted from the cannabis plant, in which is turned into CBD oil, it is harvested much different than THC flower would be. The CBD hemp that you consume is coming from the seeds and stocks of the plant — which contains a much lesser THC count than regular flower would.

CBD comes in various forms such as: Edibles (cooking, gummy bears, coffee, cake, etc), Vaporing form (vape pen that is to be inhaled), and Tinctures (liquid oil dispensed by a dropper to be put under your tongue, in your water, etc).

For CBD oil to be used in tinctures, they come in various concentration dosages. The exact dosage to help your sleep issues are relative and vary from each person — talk to your doctor to see what dosage would be best for specific sleeping issues.

Now go catch your Zzz’s….

Sweet dreams.
