INSOMNIA

    Insomnia is not just never sleeping at night.  Its really about sleeping through the night or not sleeping soundly.  Around 8 million Americans struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep every night to the degree they want. What’s more, insomnia can drain your energy levels, impact your mood, adversely affect your health and quality of life.  Many people suffer from insomnia and never even realize that they should be sleeping better.

    In general, there are two types of insomnia; short-term and chronic.  Short-term insomnia typically lasts less than 3 months and can be caused by stress or an outside event. Chronic insomnia typically occurs at least 3 times per week and will last for a longer period of time. Some treatments for insomnia exist including, Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) and CBD.

    How CBD Can Help with Insomnia

    head-state-imgpngCBD works by activating certain compounds in the brain, which can lead to a sense of peace and positive mood through improved serotonin signaling as well as higher dopamine levels. There is even some early evidence that CBD may help reduce brain activity, allowing you to slip into sleep more soundly.

     

    Since one of the main causes of insomnia is anxiety, and CBD may be an all natural anti-anxietal at the same time, it has been gaining notoriety for its ability to help patients with insomnia by working directly with the receptors within our endocannabinoid system. Taken an hour or so before bedtime, CBD users have seen dramatic increases in their ability to fall asleep and sleep soundly through the night.

    testimonial
    "I have experimented with CBD to address chronic anxiety and to reduce cravings associated with drug use disorder. I am typically skeptical of natural remedies, yet was shocked when I found that CBD offered noticeable relief from both. Now, I use CBD sublingually on a regular basis and supplement with vape and edibles as needed. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm a true believer."

    "I'm typically skeptical of natural remedies but when someone gave me CBD as a gift, I didn't think it hurt to try. I am in good health generally so wasn't sure how it would manifest, but I've found it to help with my sleep considerably. I have had the deepest and most restful sleep, but with no lagging drowsiness and am able to get up on a dime. CBD is now an integral part of my health regimen."

    FAQ’S

    Will I become addicted to CBD?

    In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. This has been recognized by the DEA and the reason we are seeing increased research and interest in the chemical compound.

    Does CBD have any interactions?

    CBD is generally well tolerated with a good health profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications. Please consult with your physician before taking CBD.

    CBD inhibits the cytochrome p450 enzyme which helps to metabolize many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group which is why physicians advise patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking medication. The effect CBD may have by inhibiting the cytochrome p450 enzyme is it may increase or decrease the effects of other drugs. Please consult with your doctor before using CBD.

    What are the benefits of CBD?

    CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials, with one pure CBD product (Epidiolex®) currently in Phase III trials. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions.
