Yawn! Having Trouble Sleeping??

Are you one of the three American adults who can’t get enough sleep?  Well according to a 2016 CDC report you may very well be one and you’re not alone. Many use drugs (sedatives) which our bodies adapt to overtime and which can become addictive.  A better approach could be sought having no side effects. 

Fortunately, CBD Oil can meet that need with fewer or no negative side effects. CBD oil’s popularity for providing pain relief, appetite and improving anxiety and depression has recently in studies suggested its applicability as a sleep aid.  Although, more research is required to fully understand its long term effects most people may not be sure of how to use CBD oil for assistance in sleep. 

CBD may improve your sleep if external factors or related conditions are preventing you from sleeping.  When you have chronic pain, CBD may address the cause thereby helping you sleep. 

In the study, “Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series” which was published on January 7, 2019 (The Permanente Journal) studied 72 adults concerned with anxiety or poor sleep who, in the first month,  experienced a 79.2% reduction in anxiety and remained so during the study duration.  These fluctuated over time.  CBD was tolerated by all but 3 patients in this study. Side effects were minimal and mainly fatigue which may be related to dosing

Many different cultures have used the Cannabis plant to treat a plethora of ailments. Practitioners in ancient China targeted malaria, menstrual symptoms, gout, and constipation. During medieval times, cannabis was used for pain, epilepsy, nausea, and vomiting, and in Western medicine it was commonly used as an analgesic., In the US, physicians prescribed Cannabis sativa for a multitude of illnesses until restrictions were put in place in the 1930s and then finally stopped using it in 1970 when the federal government listed marijuana as a Schedule I substance, claiming it an illegal substance with no medical value.

One advantage of Cannabidiol drops as a sleeping aid is that it’s not a sedative and will therefore not cause excessive daytime sleepiness or grogginess the following day. In some instances, CBD has even been observed to promote wakefulness.
