Will CBD help me sleep?
One of the most common questions we have been asked is what are the benefits of taking a CBD oil? In this hectic modern world we live in, stress comes at us from all angles, be it work, family or financial pressures. Millions of people have been effected and one of the most common side effects of stress can be losing the ability to maintain a good and regular sleep pattern. We believe CBD is a useful tool you can add into your daily routine that can help with the overall quality of your sleep.
Lets touch on some of the most common questions we have recently been asked related to sleep..
Can CBD Impact Sleep Quality?
CBD could improve the overall quality of sleep. One of the reasons is due to its potential to reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, increasing deep, restful sleep and minimising other factors that could interrupt sleep. CBD can help by shifting your body from REM (Rapid Eye Movement) rest into deeper NREM (Non–rapid eye movement) sleep.
Could CBD prevent snoring?
If you speak to anyone who shares a bed with someone who snores, they will tell you that it has a detrimental impact on the quality of their sleep. People who snore may also disturb their own sleep pattern, not allowing them to enter a deep stage of sleep for a continued period.
Research has found that CBD works with the endocannabinoid system in your body & may protect the brain from symptoms related to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition that causes abnormal patterns of breathing while asleep.
Is CBD a good alternative to other sleep aids?
Compared to other sleep aids on the market, CBD may be safer and more effective than prescription or over-the-counter options.
If you have difficulties sleeping due to anxiety or pain, then CBD may provide relief from those symptoms so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
The Bottom Line..
If you are one of the many people in the UK suffering from lack of sleep, you may be looking for a natural solution that could help over a prescribed medication. CBD maybe a safer and more effective remedy that could help some people get the rest they need.
Before using any natural remedy, be sure to speak with a health professional about your particular situation and any current medications you may be taking.
If you do decide to use CBD as a sleep aid, it is recommended to take it 30-60 minutes before bed so it has time to take effect.
