CBD Oil For Sleep – Does It Help?
CBD products are now becoming a firm-favorite supplement to support wellbeing and aid in relaxation. But many people turn to cannabinoids for more specific reasons, and ‘CBD for sleep’ is a trending search term on Google.
So can it help? Read on to find out what exactly CBD is and whether it can promote better sleep.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation of the word Cannabidiol, which is one of over 140 known cannabinoids to be found in the cannabis plant.
For many years, cannabis has been predominantly associated with THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for producing the ‘high’ effect. However, most cannabinoids found in the plant do not produce any such high, and actually have significant potential to aid our bodily functions.
Cannabis Sativa L. is a variety of cannabis that contains low levels of THC, but high levels of CBD. Along with hundreds of additional ‘minor’ cannabinoids that are found in lower quantities.
For commercial purposes, this variety of cannabis was named ‘Industrial Hemp’, to distinguish it from what people commonly referred to as a drug. Hemp is legal to cultivate under license for the production of seeds, oils, and fiber.
The word ‘hemp’ has stuck in the CBD industry because of the stigma, albeit unjustified, associated with cannabis.
CBD itself has been studied for many medicinal applications with promising results, however, CBD sold as a supplement is not allowed to be sold for medicinal use. Supplemental CBD is sold for supporting wellbeing and tends to be in lower doses than what is used in medicine.
Cannabidiol interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ESC), which is a biological system that helps regulate a wide range of bodily functions. Scientists believe that it is through the mechanism of this interaction that consumers obtain benefits for their health and wellbeing.
CBD Isolate is the pure crystal form of Cannabidiol. CBD Isolate has been shown in multiple studies to be less effective than cannabidiol that is delivered in its natural form, along with all of the other cannabinoids, terpenes, and other cannabis compounds.
This is due to the fact that ‘full spectrum’ extracts, that contain all of the plant’s biologically active and inactive compounds, exhibit a synergistic relationship that equates to a more pronounced effect. This synergy is known as the ‘entourage effect’ and is the reason why full spectrum CBD oils are preferable for improving wellbeing.
Can CBD help with sleep?
When trying to find out if CBD can help with sleep, many internauts reach out directly to suppliers of cannabinoid supplements such as BROWN’S CBD.
Unfortunately, CBD suppliers are not legally permitted to give any medical guidance to customers, so law-abiding companies will not be able to help with this.
However, a quick search on the web will show many studies and anecdotal reports of the effects of CBD on sleep quality. So we always advise customers to do some research on their end before purchasing CBD Oil so that they can make an informed decision.
Remember, just because a supplement works for some people does not necessarily mean that it will work for you. But given how safe a supplement CBD is, there’s no harm in experimenting with it to see if it could help your personal situation. Most people do have a positive experience.
