Not sleeping well will drastically lower the quality of your everyday life. Being tired and not properly restored will affect you both mentally, and physically; making you groggy and frustrated and lacking energy. For years researchers have been studying how CBD (cannabidiol) which carries a large number of therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive effects of THC can aid sleep.
Getting Cbd & introducing it into your daily and nightly routine could have sleep aid benefits which has been proven.
Bad sleep and insomnia can be caused by a variety of reasons and factors including the following:
mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, PTSD)
medication which is disturbing your sleep-wake cycle
physical conditions such as chronic pain, being over caffeinated
environmental conditions such as light and noise
If you can pinpoint the cause of your lack of sleep and it’s easily fixed, such as caffeine or noise, then address this first. For the more deeply rooted issues, research is showing that CBD could be a naturally sourced solution.
Pain is a factor which can greatly disrupt sleep. A review looked into preclinical and clinical research of cannabinoids in the treatment of pain; findings showed that cannabinoids are promising therapeutic strategies for pain treatment.
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behaviour disorder - also referred to as RBD - is a sleep condition which has physiological similarities to waking states and is consequently significantly less restoritative than other sleep states. RBD is categorised by eye movement, vivid dreaming, and nightmares. Research from 2014 looking into four patients with Parkinson’s and found that CBD improved the symptoms of RBD, offering a deeper and more restorative quality of sleep.
