CBD oil for a good night’s sleep
Feeling refreshed starts the night before, with that all-important (but often mythical) “good night’s sleep”. Tiredness can negatively impact cognitive and physical function and leaves us feeling far from invigorated and ready to tackle new challenges.
But how can we ever attain those elusive eight hours while battling an overflowing inbox, snowballing life admin and that friend we never replied to on WhatsApp after they messaged at 2am? Increasingly, many people are turning to Cannabidiol for help.
Although studies around CBD (a non-psychoactive substance extracted from the cannabis or hemp plant) are in their infancy, many hail it as a blessing when it comes to aiding sleep and include the substance as a potent addition to their naptime arsenal.
The most straightforward way to get your CBD fix is in oil format, available in a variety of different strengths, sublingually by holding droplets of the oil under the tongue. The flavour is certainly an acquired taste, which is why we’re seeing a boom in CBD-infused products in 2019, from humous to chocolate, to make consuming it a more palatable part of your everyday diet.
With no concrete studies yet published, it’s impossible to say definitively how many milligrams each person should take for their specific concerns. But it’s useful to be aware of strength when purchasing products, so always remember to check the ingredients label to see how much CBD is in a product and ensure you’re not footing the bill for a microscopic amount.
For those who dream of waking up feeling rejuvenated, CBD is a compelling option that’s certainly worth experimenting with to assess whether it works for you.
As we eagerly await results from ongoing clinical studies into its effects on a wide range of health conditions, the next five years promises to be very exciting indeed.
