In the recent past, there is a hike in the use of CBD products because of their therapeutic effects.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a naturally occurring substance that is considered to be an antibacterial, antioxidants, and anticonvulsant compound.
How to use CBD for sleep?
CBD products are available in the market in various forms like oil and tinctures, pills and capsules, edibles like gummies, and vape concentration.
You may intake cannabidiol products the way that suits you best. However, vaping CBD is one of the best methods as it gets into your body faster than other methods.
The dosage of CBD you take and result depends on many factors such as age, weight, diet, physical activity, etc.
How does CBD work?
CBD works when it interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is an internal series of cannabinoid receptors located in the body which manage to bring the body back to balance (homeostasis).
Cannabidiol is most commonly used to fight anxiety, and for individuals who suffer through habitual sleeplessness, researchers suggest that it can assist you with both staying asleep and falling asleep.
Causes of poor sleep:
There are a myriad thing that may stimulate poor sleep, such as:
- Medication, which may disturb your sleeping cycle
- Mental health disorders, such as post-traumatic disorder(PTSD), anxiety, and depression
- Caffeine, particularly when you intake late at night
- Environmental factors
- The physical condition of an individual
If you are suffering from insomnia (inability to sleep) or other sleep disorders, cannabidiol can help you by treating the reasons for sleeplessness.
Studies show that cannabidiol helps treat sleep disorders by fighting the root cause of sleeplessness. Let’s have a look at some statistics:
- In the US, 60 to 70 million adults are suffering from (American Sleep Association, 2021)
- In the US, 25% of adults suffer from obstructive sleep (American Sleep Association, 2021)
- Approximately 35% to 40% of grown-ups report symptoms of sleep disorders every year in the US. (American Journal of Managed Care, 2020)
Is CBD legalized?
It depends on whether the cannabidiol is extracted from hemp or Marijuana. If it is extracted from hemp and has THC less than 0.3% then it is legal in all the states of the US. However, if it’s extracted from Marijuana then it is illicit. For in-depth information click here.
