CBD & Sleep
CBD & Sleep
It is estimated that approximately 70 million people suffer from insomnia or some other sleep disorder. Most of us have trouble falling asleep because we have racing thoughts and worries. Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our well being. A restful sleep can help our mood, lower our stress, lower our risk of heart disease and diabetes and even help us stay a healthy weight and improve our immune system.
So how does CBD help with sleep?
Joseph Maroon, M.D., a clinical professor and neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center who has researched the effect of cannabis on the brain, says that CBD has properties that could help some people sleep better. Most notably, he says, it appears to ease anxiety and pain, both of which can make it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep.
CBD is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It interacts with receptors in our endocannabinoid system to help many functions in our body. These receptors have been shown to influence things like mood, depression, anxiety, appetite, pain and inflammation. By reacting with these receptors CBD helps the above functions making it essential to obtaining a quality and healthy night's sleep.
