CBD oil for better sleep
According to the Sleep Foundation, about 30% of people worldwide report having trouble sleeping. Either they have difficulty falling asleep or they wake up in the middle of the night. Fortunately, you don’t always need heavy medication to get a good night’s sleep. As CBD appears to help improve sleep and ultimately provide rest for those with insomnia:
Before we explore the ways in which cannabidiol (CBD) helps improve sleep, it is important to know what actually causes insomnia. As research shows, there may be a few reasons why you may not be sleeping well. From mental causes such as anxiety and stress, to physical conditions such as pain and restless leg syndrome. Although it can also be due to that last cup of coffee you had, heartburn from something you ate or environmental conditions such as an uncomfortable bed or snoring partner.
Obviously, taking CBD oil will not prevent your partner from snoring or make your bed more comfortable. However, while research on the benefits of CBD remains limited, preliminary data suggest that the cannabinoid derived from industrial hemp may help treat insomnia in most cases. But how exactly does it improve your sleep and which CBD product should you choose for a better and more restful sleep?
CBD for better sleep
First, recent research – published in 2019 – focused on the effects of CBD on sleep and anxiety. Using 25mg of CBD per day, about 80% of participants reported lower anxiety. while 66% reported improved sleep thanks to the cannabinoid. This proves the effectiveness of the plant’s substance on stress-related sleep disorders in most cases.
Regarding pain as a cause for insomnia, research published in 2018 proves that CBD may be a potential treatment. The Frontiers in Pharmacology review notes that there is enough evidence to support the effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of pain. Consequently, the review authors note that by reducing pain, Cannabidiol (CBD) may help improve sleep quality.
In addition, we have found evidence from 2014 that supports claims that CBD could affect the sleep cycle. By looking at the effect of CBD on Parkinson’s disease, researchers discovered the effect of cannabinoids on our sleep cycle. In conclusion that the plant’s essence improved the symptoms of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD). A disorder in which a person performs his or her dreams and is associated with poor sleep quality and nightmares.

CBD Patches (30x15mg)
Another product we’ve been getting fantastic feedback on regarding sleep: our new CBD Topical Patches with 30 x 15mg. The transdermal (through the skin) administration of the cannabinoid in the CBD patches, significantly increases the effectiveness of the product. This means that the effects are more noticeable with these patches compared to 15 mg of oil, for example. Due to the slow release of the active ingredients, these patches offer long-lasting relief of at least 12 hours. The provision of this product may be perfectly suited to help you stay asleep during the night!
CBG oil for positive dreams
Last, but certainly not least on the list of CBD products to improve sleep is our CBG oil. Cannabigerol (CBG) is also known as the “germ cell” of the cannabinoids THC and CBD and is known to have a relaxing effect on the body and mind. In addition, our clients report that using CBG before bedtime helps them fall asleep more easily and most of all, provides positive dreams. This means that CBG oil could potentially be useful for treating nightmares! Want to learn more about this relatively new product?
