CBD oil could alleviate sleeping problems during the summer heat we are currently experiencing in the UK.

CBD oil may help alleviate sleeping problems experienced as research reveals over 52% of Brits highlight temperature as the main factor keeping them from getting enough sleep.

With the UK in the midst of a heatwave, there is one topic being brought up frequently and that is sleep!

A poll conducted by sleepcouncil.org found that as many as 52% of people in the UK believe their surrounding temperature prevents them from being able to get to sleep.

According to the American National Sleep Foundation, anything higher than 18.3 degrees Celsius can lead to difficulty getting to sleep and sleeping long enough to feel well-rested.

Additionally, established research by a team of academics in America have also found that people struggle to sleep in alien environments, particularly experienced when staying in hotels. Sleeping in these unrecognised environments leads to one side of the brain being more active than the other, causing a phenomenon known as the first-night effect (FNE) that affects the brain to properly shut down preventing the chance for Rapid Eye Movement sleep (REM) – more colloquially known as deep sleep – to occur.

The difficulty getting to sleep in the summer heat, together with the rise in availability of off the shelf sleep aids has pushed the global market to a shocking $2.3 billion.

CBD oil has recently exploded into public consciousness, moving from the outer edge of society into the mainstream and gathering attention from companies working in all industries from cosmetics, food and hospitality & medicine.

Many studies into CBD have shown that it can help with stress and anxiety relief and promote better sleep.

Research has suggested that the British public are becoming more active in their search for sleeping aids. Such relevant studies have shown that over a quarter of Brits rank getting enough sleep as their greatest health ambition.

We should not be surprised that the desire for sleepy teas, better mattresses, meditation apps have become more dominant. Instead of turning to prescription medication, Britons look more favourably upon holistic methods of improving their wellbeing.

With so many millions of Brits struggling to get good quality sleep in the temperatures that come with the summer months, sometimes compounded with the deprivation brought about by the natural reaction of sleeping in new environments, CBD oil looks to be ideal for anybody who does not want to resort to prescription sleep medication.

Our verdict!

We strongly believe that our CBD oil and Cannabis tea is the perfect natural and organic combination to promote a restful sleep, especially in environments where heat can be a major contributing factor, not allowing you to enter that perfect sleep state to promote recovery.
