Nighty Night with CBD
Do you ever get that feeling when your alarm goes off and the only thing you can think of is going back to sleep, no matter how many hours of sleep you just had?
Just because you slept for many hours, doesn’t mean you slept well. You may have been tossing and turning and not breathing properly throughout the night and these patterns can affect every aspect in your day to day life. Trouble focusing, not being as productive as you can, feeling more stressed and just in general not yourself - are all things even the slightest sleep deprivation can cause.
Taking CBD during the day can be extremely helpful by relieving pain, helping you find balance, maintaining a calm mind set and most importantly at the end of the day, helping you fall asleep. Thanks to natural sleeping aids and the general calming effect CBD has on our bodies, ingesting CBD before bed is a great way to have a restful night. Whether you eat a gummy or take a drop from a tincture, CBD will kickstart an internal system in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS for short) which is a system of receptors in your brain and nervous system that interacts with the cannabinoids you ingest. The CBD you intake attaches itself to specific receptors within this system that play a role in regulating stress, mood, inflammation and more.
Research shows that CBD also interacts with receptors tied with sleep and wake cycles within the body. Moreover, relieving stress will cause the body to relax and settle into sleep. When a CBD tincture is mixed with additional sleeping aids, such as Valerian Root, the effects of the CBD are potentiated, allowing you to sleep even better.
Getting back to your daily functions will be a whole lot easier after a good night’s sleep and you will feel recharged for the day you have ahead of you instead of longing to go back to sleep.
