There are a number of sleep aids and medications that are available to people that struggle to sleep at night. However, cannabidiol (CBD) is a 100% natural compound that can help with rest and relaxation, which makes it an ideal sleep solution. For thousands of years, hemp compounds have been used for inducing sleep and attaining a more restful night.
Sleeplessness and insomnia affect around 30% of adults worldwide. Of these people, two-thirds say the reason for their restlessness is stress and anxiety, often caused by work. People that suffer from insomnia are more likely to develop other ailments, such as Type 2 diabetes. This means that a lack of sleep affects more than just our mental abilities – there are real health risks involved too.
Soji Health Europe offers several CBD products, including CBD oil and body lotion that can be used to promote relaxation and as a natural sleep solution. Our Sunset Sleep and Sunrise All Day sublingual oils are manufactured with a unique nano-liposomal delivery system that provides up to six times higher bioavailability than other brands. They are also flavored to make them more enjoyable. Both of these products have an anti-inflammatory effect that reduces pain and swelling in the body, including toothache and swollen gums.
CBD is a natural sleep solution
The human body has chemical receptors located throughout its structure. The entire network of these receptors is known as the endocannabinoid system and it is linked to other physiological processes, such as hormones, the immune system and the nervous system. The endocannabinoid system also plays a role in our natural sleep/wake cycle, known as circadian rhythms.
These receptors absorb CBD in the bloodstream, which is why the hemp-based compound has so many health benefits, including pain relief, relaxation and sleep. CBD is a natural, non-toxic and non-addictive substance, which means that it is the perfect alternative to pharmaceutical sleeping pills and similar synthetic products. There are numerous ways in which CBD acts as a sleep solution, which are outlined below.
1. CBD reduces stress and anxiety
A major cause of insomnia is stress. CBD helps to regulate cortisol – the hormone that elevates our heart rate and induces the feeling of angst and worry. Cortisol also has an impact on our sleep cycle. Therefore, CBD counteracts these negative effects of cortisol and leaves a person feeling more relaxed and at ease, which is absolutely vital during the process of falling asleep.
2. CBD is an effective pain reliever
Sometimes physical pain can keep people awake at night. Whether it is a bad toothache, muscle cramps, or sore joints, CBD is an effective pain reliever. It is highly recommended for people that suffer from chronic and acute pain, especially when the pain affects sleep. Rather than providing a sedative effect, like most pharmaceutical remedies, CBD actually works on the symptoms of the pain through the endocannabinoid receptors located throughout the body. This improves the quality of sleep as pain is minimized for a number of hours.
3. CBD has a soothing effect on muscles
While exercise in itself can be a natural remedy for insomnia, it can lead to muscle cramps, stiffness and tension. People that workout for the first time will often feel sore for a few days. Similarly, active people that push the boundaries of their capabilities may experience stiffness after a heavy training session. CBD helps to soothe sore and stiff muscles which allow a person to sleep more comfortably at night.
4. CBD is good for PMS and pregnancy symptoms
Many women struggle to sleep due to the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or pregnancy, such as pain, nausea and stress. CBD is an effective remedy for PMS and the World Health Organization (WHO) has even stated that there are no conclusive adverse side-effects from taking CBD, even in studies conducted on pregnant women so far. Although, it is vital that pregnant women consult their doctor before taking CBD products.
5. CBD induces more restful sleep
Many people suffer from nightmares, especially when the brain is subconsciously under stress. Nightmares can lead to sleepless nights and affect the quality of sleep. CBD has been scientifically proven to reduce the occurrence of nightmares and improve the overall quality of sleep. It helps to relax a stressed mind and improve the quality of rest.
How to use CBD for better sleep
When taking CBD, it is important to find the right dosage for your body. Everyone has a different tolerance to natural compounds, so the process may start with a trial and error stage. Start with a smaller dosage than you think and slowly increase this amount over the period of a week. On the other hand, long-term users of CBD may find that effects start to reduce over time, in which case increasing the dosage may be advisable.
This process will allow you to find the optimal dosage of CBD that really enhances your sleep and enables you to wake up feeling refreshed and energetic. Sublingual oils are the fastest-acting CBD products, so we recommend using our Sunset Sleep just before bed. CBD lotions and ingestible gummies take longer to produce an effect, but they often last longer too, so they can help you to stay asleep for longer periods. It’s all about finding the right solution for your needs and which method meets your personal requirements.
