The benefits of CBD are being talked about a lot, and we're excited to be a part of that conversation. Hemp is one of the most versatile and useful plants on our planet. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, which has a variety of positive effects on our body's natural endocannabinoid system. Our endocannabinoid system contains receptors that interact directly with CBD and help return our body to homeostasis (a state of balance and stability).
CBD Benefits and Effects of CBD: Research is still ongoing
CBD and its benefits can get confusing, so let's look at this topic like a book. Today we are reading a chapter on CBD for sleep. Our goal is to help you learn more about the benefits of CBD so you can get the most out of GoGreen Hemp products when it's time to go to bed. It is important to remember that research on CBD (CBD effects, CBD benefits, etc.) is limited and we will learn more information as more research is done.
CBD oil can help with anxiety and insomnia
There are many internal and external factors that contribute to poor sleep. Externally, it can be a snoring partner, a noisy neighbor or an uncomfortable bed. Internally, poor sleep can be related to anxiety, depression, caffeine, medications, or physical conditions. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, it's likely due to some sort of disorder.
Studies show that CBD oil can help with anxiety and insomnia. in 2019 in a study, 72 participants took 25 milligrams of CBD capsules each day. After one month, the results showed that 79% of participants reported lower levels of anxiety and 66% said they were sleeping better. Another recent study suggests that CBD shows promising signs of therapeutic potential in the treatment of insomnia, although more research is also needed on this topic.
Scientists are still investigating why taking CBD oil can improve sleep. Many researchers theorize that CBD hemp oil promotes sleep because it has the potential to address underlying causes of insomnia, such as stress, poor sleep habits, or trauma. As more research is done on CBD and its benefits, we will learn more about why and how it can help us sleep.
Effects of CBD on REM
There are four stages of sleep divided into two phases, non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. During sleep, the body switches between these phases. During the NREM phase, various functions begin to slow down, including eye movements and muscle activity. You then enter REM sleep, when brain wave activity increases and intense dreams occur.
Limited research suggests that CBD affects the sleep cycle. In particular, preliminary studies have found that CBD sleep aids with certain sleep disorders that occur during REM sleep. The researchers concluded that CBD may be promising for the treatment of REM sleep behavior disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness.
When to use CBD for sleep disorders?
There are many ways to use CBD for sleep, including capsules and oil tinctures. With each product, remember that your weight, body chemistry, and the nature of your sleep disorders will affect how CBD products work. Start with a low dose and gradually increase it until you find the one that works best for you.
Incorporate CBD into your evening routine so that when your head hits the pillow, you'll be relaxed and ready for a nap. You can even combine CBD with melatonin for restful sleep. GoGreen Hemp offers a variety of products to help soothe ailments that affect your sleep. Remember that CBD works gradually and affects each person differently.
Tips and tricks to prepare for sweet sleep
You may have heard it once, twice... maybe even a hundred times, but stop staring at the screen before bed! Blue light from screens interferes with sleep because it stimulates attention, reaction time and mood. Harvard researchers found that blue light suppresses melatonin for about twice as long as green light and shifts the circadian rhythm by twice as much. And for what? Last minute email reading a letter or twitter? Not worth it.
We know it's not realistic for most of us to turn off the screen before bed, but we encourage you to try. Create a quiet evening ritual that might include turning off your smart devices an hour before bed, meditating, reading, washing your face, or asking your partner to massage you with CBD massage oils. Prepare for a state of relaxation before bed. You deserve it.
