Whether you're a full-blown insomniac or simply have a tough time nodding off, bedtime can get unnerving. Many are now turning to CBD to help them drift off, but what CBD is best for sleep? Read on to learn more.
Proper sleep is one of the most essential factors to overall health and wellbeing. Sleep not only gives you energy for the following day, it also helps grow and repair muscles and tissue, prevent sickness and contributes to memory formation.
Unfortunately, falling or staying asleep can be difficult for some. Tossing and turning can be frustrating, leaving you exhausted and unfocused the next day.
Many have now turned to CBD as a solution to help them peacefully drift off. In fact, 42% of Americans who use CBD use it for sleep and insomnia.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the main cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system. This process is said to help your body maintain a state of balance and stability.
The Journal of Clinical Investigation's study results indicated that: "The cannabinoid system is an essential endogenous regulator of energy homeostasis via central orexigenic as well as peripheral lipogenic mechanisms and might therefore represent a promising target to treat diseases characterized by impaired energy balance."
Unlike THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties, meaning it cannot get you “high.”
Cannabinoids & The ECS
Researchers have identified two primary receptors in the endocannabinoid system, CB1 and CB2, which are located in the central and peripheral nervous system. These receptors are responsible for regulating many of our body’s natural processes including immune response, appetite and metabolism, sleep, memory, and much more. When a person (or mammal) consumes cannabinoids, those cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system to create a physiological response to help alleviate inflammation, control moods, and assist with our bodies homeostasis.
CBN is the most effective cannabinoid observed for sleep, making it an increasingly common choice for those with insomnia. Studies have shown that CBN works as a sedative to help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep, and can extend the duration of time asleep. These effects are significantly more apparent when pairing CBN with THC.
