If you have trouble falling or staying asleep, you are not alone. In a recent Consumer Reports survey, almost 80% of Americans experience trouble sleeping at least once a week. If you fall into this category or know someone who has a difficult time sleeping, read on to learn about how CBD may offer the relief you are seeking.
Author Lisa Gill found out the use of CBD for sleep dates back to a 1200 A.D. Chinese medical text. If people way back when have used CBD to help people get and stay asleep, there must be something to it.
CBD has been found to increase overall sleep amounts, reduce sleep difficulties, improve sleep quality, and reduce insomnia. A significant reason why it helps in these areas is that CBD has been found to ease anxiety and pain – two of the most common interferences to a healthy sleep cycle. Dr. Joseph Maroon has discovered that CBD affects sleep directly by interacting with brain receptors responsible for the body’s sleep/wake cycle.
Dr. Maroon says that while CBD is not a treatment for insomnia, it can be used as a natural alternative method to help calm anxious thoughts that interfere with our natural sleep cycles.
Consider how CBD can help regulate your sleep/wake cycle by trying Remedi’s Essential NightTime Organic Edible Gummies. These Vegan-friendly, 100% organic gummies are made with hemp-derived CBD isolate and melatonin. Their delightful strawberry flavor ensures you won’t experience any bitter, earthy aftertaste right before bed. Ideally, take these on an empty stomach about 90 minutes for bedtime to increase absorbancy.
Please note it is important to consult your doctor before using CBD if you are pregnant, nursing, or considering using it for children or elderly people, as its effect on these people groups is unknown.
