Cannabidiol, better known by it’s shorthand, “CBD” is one of the main naturally occurring chemicals found within Cannabis plants.

How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep With CBD
Along with reducing pain and anxiety, which also cause sleep disturbances, CBD has been shown to have a positive effect on the circadian rhythm. Our circadian rhythm is our 24-hour biological clock. This inner clock regulates our sleep and wake cycles throughout the day. It regulates our body temperature, wakefulness, and hormones. Light exposure, hormones, exercise, and certain medications all affect the circadian rhythm.
40-50% of participants in a study analyzing the effects of CBD, THC, as well as CBD and THC on sleep over four years reported improvements in the quality of their sleep. Well rest is key to treating chronic pain and establishing overall well-being, as lack of quality sleep leads to respiratory diseases, an increased risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes, as well as an increased risk for cardiovascular diseases.

CBD can be consumed in the form of extracts, capsules, spray, as well as inhaled through a vapor form. No matter how you prefer to administer your CBD dosage, all forms work as an effective sleep aid.
