We’ve all experienced those dreadful mornings after a restless night of no sleep. If you’re lucky, running on three hours of sleep is a rare occasion. But if you struggle with insomnia, then difficulty sleeping is an ongoing issue that, at some point, certainly starts to interfere with your daily life!

If that’s the case, then CBD might just be your answer to improving your sleep cycle and feeling more energized throughout the day! With ongoing speculation on whether or not CBD can actually promote better sleep, we’ve laid out everything you need to know about CBD’s relationship with the sleep cycle. 

What Causes Poor Sleep?

First off, we have to figure out what causes poor sleep. While there could be several external factors, it’s common for anxiety, depression, medication, caffeine, or chronic pain to disrupt the sleep cycle. Unfortunately, all of these disruptors are closely related. For example, lack of sleep will likely lead to increased anxiety levels and a caffeine addiction, which turns into a vicious cycle. 

CBD and The Sleep Cycle

The great thing about CBD is that when you take it with the intention of helping one area of your life, it’ll likely improve other areas in the process. If you turn to CBD for improving your anxiety, there’s a good chance you’ll also have a good night’s sleep since you’re eliminating a huge sleep disruptor. 

How can CBD improve sleep? Essentially, research suggests that CBD improves anxiety, boosts your mood, and reduces inflammation in the body, all of which can keep you from getting your much-needed beauty sleep. CBD can also replace your morning and afternoon coffee since one of its most profound benefits is to increase productivity levels! 

We might go throughout the entire day brushing off the pain we feel in our back or disregarding the fact that we’re on our 6th cup of coffee, but at some point, it’ll catch up to us. And when it does, CBD will be there for you!

CBD and The Endocannabinoid System

Unless you live and breathe CBD like we do, you might be confused about the science behind CBD, our sleep cycles, and the endocannabinoid system. Well, the endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in maintaining how well our bodies function, such as regulating our mood, sleep, appetite, and circadian rhythms. 

The cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, such as CBD, bind to the receptors in our body and modulate our functions in a similar way as endocannabinoids. While THC binds to the receptors in our brain to create a euphoric high, CBD binds to receptors in our brain but also throughout the entire body to benefit both our mental and physical well-being. 

How to Take CBD For Better Sleep

We believe in taking the natural approach by utilizing CBD to avoid any of the nasty side effects of traditional medication. Depending on your preference, you can either take a few drops of a CBD Tincture, use a Sleep Spray, take CBD Gummies, or even rub your body with a CBD Massage Oil. Choose one method or mix it up every now and then with our Sleep Bundle, providing you with every CBD product you need for those restless nights. 

Adding CBD into your nightly ritual can help you get a full 8-hours of sleep without any disruptions! Yes, that means you will actually wake up feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to take on the day. Instead of reaching for the sleeping pills and morning coffee, give CBD a chance to improve your overall quality of life!

CBD is Better for Sleep is just one of the sleep products available at Hemp Crate Co.
