Everyone we know CRAVES sleep. They talk about it, fantasize about it and never get enough of it. Whether it’s not being able to fall asleep or not being able to stay asleep, no one appears immune to the cruel mistress of sleeplessness. According to Project CBD, “Approximately 70 million people [in the US] suffer from […] insufficient sleep…” That’s a lot of sleep-deprived people. Many people want to get better sleep, and for good reason.

Not getting adequate sleep can increase fatigue, moodiness and even cause you to gain weight. Because CBD Hemp Oil works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, it helps regulate balance and homeostasis. It does this by activating two main categories of receptors CB1 and CB2. Not to put too fine a point on it, but these receptors play a role in the release of neurotransmitters, feelings of pleasure, concentration, memory and pain tolerance. So how can you get better sleep?
Numerous studies have shown how CBD can help with sleeplessness. A 2006 study on rats showed an increased alertness with light, displaying that CBD could potentially be used for relief of temporary symptoms of day-time drowsiness. Another study revealed how CBD relieves temporary feelings of anxiety, a common factor that keeps people awake. Additionally, several customers report that taking a CBD tincture or extract a few hours before bedtime has a balancing effect that help them get better sleep.
