Can CBD help your sleep patterns?
With today's busy lifestyles, insomnia affects many people. Its effects are wide-ranging from bouts of extreme tiredness during the day - which can be very dangerous - to an inability for your body to fight other illnesses since it doesn't have time to rebuild its natural defences.
As touched upon before, one way CBD may help with sleep is by easing anxiety. Too much brain activity, especially just before bed, or unresolved situations at work or home can play on your mind, churning over and over, meaning you don't achieve a restful state. So reducing anxiety gives your head a chance to switch off.
But there's more to it than that. Since CB1 receptors on the surface of neurons are in charge of sleep, mood, diet and pain, when CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) it helps regulate your body.
While some claim CBD doesn't help their sleep patterns, many do. Regarding the reduction in anxiety, some people may simply find they sleep better because they worry less about their sleep issue!
Another explanation could be that the interaction between CBD and the ECS affects the body’s sleep/wake cycle, stabilising and regulating it. Research published in 2019 suggests:
On average, anxiety and sleep improved for most patients, and these improvements were sustained over time.
Based on such conclusions, it appears the answer is yes: CBD can help your sleep patterns, especially in the short term. The only remaining question is how to administer it. Some people vape, others prefer using oil drops. Neither are as convenient as chewable tablets.
