Sleeplessness and insomnia affects people across the globe. Whether it is stress from work or more chronic medical reasons, sleep aid is a requirement for many people to get a good night's rest.
According to the Mayo Clinic, insomnia can be caused by:
mental health disorders, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression
medication, which can disturb your sleep-wake cycle
physical conditions, such as chronic pain and restless leg syndrome
caffeine, especially when consumed late in the day
environmental factors, such as loud noises or an uncomfortable bed
If your insomnia is caused by external factors or related conditions, CBD may help by treating the causes of sleeplessness. Read more about how CBD can help with these sleep-related issues in this article from Healthline.
Some research hints that CBD may also affect sleep directly, by interacting with receptors in the brain that govern the body’s daily sleep/wake cycles, according to a 2017 review of sleep and cannabis in the journal Current Psychiatry Reports. Read more here.
One investigation found that, compared with a placebo, a CBD dosage of 160 milligrams (mg) increased sleep duration. More information can be found in this article from Medical News Today.
