CBD for sleep
Having restful sleep is essential for good health and allows the body to maintain and regulate its vital functions. Sleep of sufficient duration and quality helps improve mood, behavior, alertness, memory, learning as well as the overall state of physical and mental health.
However, a large part of the world's population sleeps less than 7 hours per night, and suffers from sleep disorders or insomnia. Stress, work or even intensive use of screens are factors that significantly impact falling asleep and the quality of sleep.
To deal with this effectively, cannabidiol, also called “CBD”, would be an effective solution to naturally regain restful sleep.
CBD (cannabidiol), a natural product
CBD (or cannabidiol) is a molecule derived from the hemp plant, commonly known as cannabis. It is part of the cannabinoid family.
Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it does not cause psychotropic effects and does not lead to dependence. CBD is therefore not considered a narcotic.
CBD has effective properties to promote relaxation, facilitate muscle relaxation, reduce stress and relieve physical discomfort. Thus, it would make it easier to fall asleep and contribute to better quality sleep.
Increasingly democratized, CBD can be consumed in several forms: oil, infusions, cosmetic products, food products, capsules, capsules or even e-liquids.
Unlike chemical and conventional medications prescribed for sleep disorders, cannabidiol has no side effects. Indeed, the latter can cause states of involuntary drowsiness, sleep which is not always restorative as well as more or less habituation. However, CBD cannot replace real medicinal treatment.
Links between CBD and sleep
Sleep disorders include several types of manifestations such as insomnia, sleep apnea , hypersomnia, sleepwalking, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, nightmares and even nighttime startles.
These manifestations disrupt the quality and duration of sleep, and lead to harmful consequences on the quality of life such as chronic fatigue, daytime sleepiness, poor concentration, and in the most serious cases, a risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and degenerative.
Numerous studies* have highlighted that CBD allows you to sleep better and limit these types of events.
CBD (or cannabidiol) acts on the body by stimulating the endocannabidoid system , particularly the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 .
Knowing that these receptors are connected to the nervous system, CBD would reduce the intensity of neuronal activity to reduce the factors that increase this activity such as stress, anxiety, pain and inflammation. Thus, cannabidiol would act indirectly on the circadian modulation of sleep; it would help the body to relax, fall asleep more quickly, and promote good physical and mental recovery during the night.
Benefits of CBD on sleep
CBD would help improve the quality of sleep and regain restful sleep naturally.
Fall asleep faster
CBD helps soothe stress, relax muscles, and relieve inflammation and physical pain. It would therefore promote well-being and help you fall asleep more easily .
Another important point, the calming action of CBD on the nervous system would prevent the degradation of neurotransmitters responsible for cognitive faculties, the emotional state as well as pain.
If a person feels fear, nervous or is simply upset before going to bed, taking CBD would help regulate their emotions and improve their mood.
CBD also promotes the secretion of melatonin , the hormone that regulates chronobiological rhythms, and thus facilitates sleep.
In addition, CBD allows you to sleep better and longer because it regulates the phases of paradoxical sleep. These contribute to more restful sleep , promote dreams, combat sleep apnea and insomnia.
Consumption of CBD would therefore offer deeper and more relaxing sleep .
What dosage of CBD should you choose to sleep better?
For people who have never taken CBD, they are advised to start with a small amount to observe their reaction and tolerance to the product.
Once accustomed to consuming CBD, they can increase or decrease the dosage according to their needs.
In order to feel a satisfying effect, it is recommended to consume 0.5 mg of CBD per kilo. For example, the ideal dosage for a man who weighs 70 kilos is 35mg. This dosage can be divided into three doses (morning, noon and evening), i.e. approximately 12 mg per dose and can be increased to 1 mg per kg depending on the desired effect. If this dosage is not enough, it will then be appropriate to increase to 1mg per kg.
