Do you have a hard time falling asleep? Well, you’re not alone. You are part of the ever increasing population of Americans who are suffering from a sleeping disorder problem – commonly known as insomnia.

Millions of people around the world are suffering from insomnia today due to our hyper-stress life. There is a natural way to solve your sleeping disorder – it is called CBD.  

CBD is short for cannabidiol. This compound, which is found in the marijuana plant, is capable of solving many of health ailments including insomnia.       

How Does CBD Cures Insomnia?

When you take CBD, it interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system which is responsible for regulating many body functions including your sleeping. Your body creates cannabinoids, so CBD simply supports your body’s endocannabinoid system.

CBD relieves insomnia by bringing down your anxiety and stress levels. It is common knowledge that rise in stress and anxiety levels can cause sleeping disorders. Psychologists have stressed the deep relation between stress and our sleeping pattern.

So how does cannabidiol bring down anxiety and stress levels? Studies show that cannabidiol has an effect on the limbic and paralimbic areas of the brain, thereby releasing stress and anxiety.

But does CBD makes you feel sleepy?

It is too good to know that CBD can help you fall asleep? But what is the guarantee that it won’t make you feel sleepy during the day and thereby affect your productivity? These questions arise from the fact that CBD comes from cannabis and anything to do with this plant invariably raises a red flag.

However, CBD is not a sedative. It contains very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. In other words, CBD never makes you high. It promotes sleep by helping you to relax.

Therefore, fears that CBD may make you feel dizzy or sleepy are completely unwarranted.

So how should I go about taking CBD?

There are all types of CBD products on the market today. My favorites are CBD tincture and capsule. You can put a few drops of CBD tincture beneath the tongue. If you choose the capsule, you can take it with water. It is still important to consult your doctor to determine your CBD dosage.

It is also important to note while CBD is helpful in dealing with insomnia, it must be part of a holistic approach. It is equally important to stay positive and practice mental peace on our own. Positive lifestyle changes can go a long way to give you a good sleep.
