The Cannabidiol (CBD) trend is real and is here to stay. These days, CBD can be found at health food stores, online, in the news, and even Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is fighting for hemp CBD. And for good reason! CBD has been studied for its effects on sleep and relaxation.
CBD—a cannabinoid found in agricultural hemp, has a wide range of benefits, such as optimizing wellness. When derived from hemp, CBD oil includes all the phytonutrients the plant has to offer including essential fatty acids, plant sterols, and naturally occurring vitamin E, minus the feelings of intoxication (meaning it doesn’t get you “high”). Plus, hemp CBD is more accessible across all 50 states.
Sleep, Relaxation and the ECS
This growing popularity relates to how the compound benefits the body and one’s health through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Put simply, the ECS produces its own cannabinoids (like the ones in hemp) which talks to all other systems in the body via cannabinoid receptors, helping to restore balance where needed. The five main functions affected are eating, sleep, relaxation, memory, and protection.
While there is more to discover, there is anecdotal clinical data to support its benefits on sleep and relaxation. A 2015 study conducted by Dr. Scott Shannon used a variety of interventions (including CBD) to combat insomnia and anxiety as part of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) for a young girl, which produced positive results! The study showed a great reduction of anxiety during the day and better sleep quality.
Another patient of Dr. Shannon got benefits, too. This patient had initially used medical cannabis (high in THC) to combat his anxiety but was able to stop using high-THC cannabis after being administered CBD. The patient’s anxiety was reduced, his sleep quality improved, and he was able to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment.
How can it benefit you? It can help you relax after a stressful day by balancing your ECS—supporting a restful night’s sleep, calming racing thoughts and helping to protect your body from future stressors.
