Not getting enough sleep is one of the most common problems Americans face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) called insufficient sleep a public epidemic, citing reports that over 70 percent of adults do not get the recommended amount of sleep. Research has shown that CBD Oil may be useful in regulating the quality and consistency of your sleep cycle. Find out below how CBD Oil works with your body to promote a longer and deeper night’s rest.

 

What is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural chemical compound known as a cannabinoid found within Cannabis plants. Unlike its sister cannabinoid THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and will not cause a so-called “high.” CBD carries a wide range of therapeutic benefits, a main reason why people are increasingly turning to CBD Oil for its health and wellness benefits.

At Nature’s Script, we derive our CBD from premium, American-grown Industrial Hemp. To make CBD Oil, we use a specialized extraction method which is an eco-friendly process regarded as safe by the FDA. The extraction process allows us to produce a premium CBD compound free of any harmful toxins and containing less than 0.3% THC.

 

How Does CBD Oil for Sleep Work?

CBD Oil for Sleep and Your ECS

As you lay awake at night tossing and turning, there may be several factors keeping you from getting a good night’s rest. A restless mind, aches and pains that won’t go away and stress about the next day can all hinder your ability to fall and stay asleep.

Studies regard CBD Oil as a solution for promoting better sleep due to the way it interacts with endocannabinoid receptors within your body. Every human has an internal biological structure known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS consists of nervous signals known as endocannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. Located throughout the central and peripheral nervous system, your ECS is responsible for sustaining vital life functions. Your ECS oversees immune health, stress levels, pain response, sleep cycle, and more.

Working with your ECS’s CB1 receptors, CBD Oil may be able to help reduce issues that cause sleep difficulties. When you consume CBD Oil sublingually, or under your tongue, it activates endocannabinoid nerve receptors. Your CB1 receptors are responsible for regulating your brain’s sleep-wake cycle. Nature’s Script customers who take CBD Oil report that they feel calmer and more relaxed. This feeling of tranquility helps ease them into a healthier night’s rest.

Research

A 2013 study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology showed that Cannabidiol had a positive effect on the sleep-wake cycle of rats and their REM sleep. Rats, like humans, have an Endocannabinoid System that controls similar vital biological functions. Upon the systemic administering of CBD to the rats, they received an increase in total sleep time as well as a deeper REM sleep cycle. CBD Oil also showed promise in regulating the distribution of anandamide, a neurotransmitter linked to happiness, appetite, and sleepiness. Anandamide works as a neurotransmitter in all mammalian brains to help alleviate stress and bring about a better state of mind.
