We have all become very aware of how important sleep is for our well-being. It enables the body to repair and getting the right amount of sleep may also help prevent excess weight gain, heart disease, and muscle recovery.
CBD has emerged as a popular and natural solution to help with sleep. Many studies show promising signs that CBD can be effective at improving your sleep patterns.
The ‘Cannabidiol can improve complex sleep-related behaviours’ research published in the national library of medicine summarised the below;
“Four patients treated with CBD had prompt and substantial reduction in the frequency of RBD-related events without side effects.”
A 2017 review of cannabis literature found that preliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia. CBD may also hold promise for REM sleep behaviour disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness. Research on cannabis and sleep is in its infancy and has yielded mixed results. Additional controlled and longitudinal research is critical to advancing our understanding of research and clinical implications.
One of the most prescribed medicines to treat this problem is Valium (Diazepam). Valium has been linked to dependency and withdrawal symptoms so it's no surprise that people are turning to a more natural option.
Research is still in its preliminary stages and we will continue to share information as it becomes available. What's your experience with CBD and do you use it for its sleep improvement benefits? Let us know! Haven't tried CBD for sleep? Read why our CBD gummies could help!
