If you’re like 70 million Americans who suffer from chronic sleep problems, you’re in good company. But that doesn’t mean that every night you have to toss and turn, counting how much sleep you’d get if you nodded off right now. 

Just imagine how good it would feel to be so relaxed that the moment your head hits the pillow, your eyes close into a blissful, uninterrupted sleep. 

Well, now it’s possible. 

If you haven’t heard about the benefits of CBD on sleep, now is your opportunity to learn how CBD research suggests that long-term use of CBD can help improve sleep quality, reduce sleep disruptions, and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep.     

But how does CBD work? 

The first thing to know is the brain has naturally occurring properties called cannabinoids. These cannabinoids regulate the body’s endocannabinoid system, but this system can become dysfunctional under stress and anxiety. CBD, also known as cannabidiol, works directly with the brain’s endocannabinoid system, helping to restore balance to the system by boosting your body’s production of endocannabinoids and preventing overstimulation.

Not getting enough sleep can slow brain functions and lead to long-term side effects like heart disease, and CBD helps combat these negative symptoms. Some studies even suggest that CBD encourages neurological regeneration in the hippocampus, helping improve brain function even more.

One of the reasons for sleep problems can be caused by an excess of serotonin. There’s a common misconception that more serotonin is better because it is nicknamed the happy hormone, but brain dysfunction occurs both with high and low serotonin levels. While there are 14 receptors in serotonin, CBD binds specifically to the 5-HT1A receptor. Once CBD has attached to 5-HT1A, it works to calm the receptor and restore balance to serotonin levels.

By restoring serotonin, the brain will feel more at ease, allowing you to improve your sleep cycle. And, when your sleep cycle is functioning correctly, you wake up feeling rested and ready to take on the world. 

Now that you know how CBD works to restore your sleep, it’s time to talk about what kinds of CBD products are available to you. 

Choosing a CBD product is an essential part of improving your sleep schedule. With gummies, sprays, bath bombs, oils, and more available, what do you choose? 

Well, the truth is it’s all about what you’re most comfortable with. Many people enjoy CBD oil because it can be added to your favorite beverage or placed under the tongue for quick access to your bloodstream. Others enjoy the delicious taste of CBD gummies. Some love relaxing in a luxurious bath with CBD bath bombs, making them nice and sleepy for bedtime. 

Regardless of how you choose to take your CBD, you’re going to love the results.
