How can CBD help with sleep?
CBD (cannabidiol) may have potential benefits for sleep by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating sleep and wake cycles. CBD has been found to potentially improve sleep by:
Reducing anxiety: CBD may help reduce anxiety, which is a common factor that can interfere with sleep. By reducing anxiety, CBD may help improve sleep quality and quantity.
Regulating sleep-wake cycles: CBD may help regulate the body’s sleep-wake cycle by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system that are involved in regulating sleep.
Promoting relaxation: CBD has been found to potentially promote relaxation and reduce stress, which can help prepare the body for sleep.
Alleviating pain: Pain can interfere with sleep, and CBD has been found to potentially help alleviate pain, which can improve sleep quality.
Several studies have found that CBD may be effective in improving sleep quality and quantity in people with conditions such as insomnia and sleep apnea.
