Getting Better Sleep with CBD

Getting Better Sleep with CBD
August 09, 2021

You know those nights that you just can’t fall asleep? Tossing and turning, staring at the ceiling, thinking if I fall asleep now I’ll get 6 hours of sleep, counting down your hours until you finally drift off. Those nights suck. 

What if we told you that those nights don’t have to be your normal?

Well they don’t, CBD is here to take out the boogie man keeping you awake, whomever he may be. 

Many people’s “boogie man” is anxiety, chronic pain, or insomnia, all things that CBD has shown to help with, things that the Endocannabinoid System helps keep functioning. The reason as to why CBD helps you sleep has many answers, and they all depend on what is keeping you up.

Sleeping with Anxiety

If you have anxiety, you know exactly how challenging it can be to sleep, replaying the whole day in your head, beating yourself up for not getting something done, or remembering all the things you forgot to do that day, knowing there won’t be extra time tomorrow to get it all done. Taking CBD to sleep could help that anxiety, which could lead to falling asleep faster, resulting in a better night's sleep. 

Sleeping with Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, the invisible illness that can cause pain every single minute of every day. No wonder sleep doesn’t come easily. Trying to lay down in a position that doesn’t hurt isn’t possible, finding a position that doesn’t hurt as bad is sometimes doable, but not an easy task. CBD could help you in this task, as the endocannabinoid receptors receive signals from the CBD attaching to them, they send out responses to create anti-inflammatory and pain relief effects. Another great way CBD could help you sleep when dealing with chronic pain is CBD Topicals (which we will go in depth on next week), using a roll on or salve to help ease the pain right on the surface could help you find a comfortable position, so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep. 

Sleeping, or not sleeping, with Insomnia

CBD in any dose has shown that it could help people fall asleep quicker, in higher doses it has shown that it could help with how long people stay asleep. Since insomnia is trouble falling and staying asleep, CBD could be an ideal way to help you sleep without turning to prescriptions. 

Whomever your “boogie man” may be, CBD could help you. Many products are made specifically to help you sleep, while they all contain CBD, some of them have other natural ingredients to promote sleep, such as melatonin, or CBN. CBN is another compound found in the hemp plant that comes from an oxidation process. It is highly popular among sleep products as it can have calming or sedating effects, the effects you want as you lay down to sleep. And the best part of using CBD to help you sleep, there are so many options available, from tinctures and capsules, to gummies and vapes, you can easily find something to help you drift off and sleep soundly through the night.
