Finals exams, newborn babies, important business deals – these are just a few of the things that tend to keep our minds racing even after we’ve closed the books, got the baby to sleep and completed the work. We push our bed times back later and our alarm clocks up sooner to keep up with the quickening pace of modern society and yet still, there never seems to be enough hours in a day.
Sleep Deprivation, whether voluntary or involuntary, can dramatically disrupt your daily routine no matter how healthy or how old you are. Research shows that when healthy people are sleep-deprived, they can experience impaired memory, decline in hand-eye coordination, loss of hearing and increased inflammation. The longer the deprivation continues, the worse these symptoms become.
Sleeping Pills vs. CDB Oil
When sleep deprivation becomes an involuntary issue, doctors will prescribe patients sleeping pills. Sleeping Pills like Ambien come with serious side effects and a warning from the FDA to avoid driving or performing ANY activities that require you to be alert. But what if there was a natural, SYMPTOM FREE option readily available?
Cannabidiol—or CBD—is a cannabinoid that’s available in oil form, and has been known to help with stress, anxiety, pain, and sleep issues. Unlike medicinal cannabis, CBD is legal in all 50 states, contains no THC (no ‘high’ feeling) and is completely symptom free. That means you can still purchase and use CBD Oil even if you live in a state where medical marijuana is not yet legal.
How CBD Oil Helps You Sleep
CBD interacts with many different receptors, proteins, and other chemicals in the brain creating changes in the activity of neurotransmitters, hormones, and other cells throughout body. Through these interactions, CBD appears to improve the body’s functions, from sleep cycles, emotional regulation, inflammation, pain, and seizures.
Our bodies naturally produce their own cannabinoids, as part of what’s known as the endocannabinoid system – a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. This system plays a large role in regulating mood, pain, appetite, and cognitive functions. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which creates the “homeostatic functions” of the body.
It’s with that understanding that CBD is known to balance and regulate homeostasis in the human body, making it easier to fall asleep and sleep well through the night.
Research on CBD Oil & Sleep
Whether your sleep deprivation is due to insomnia, restless leg, sleep apnea or just daily stress still weighing heavily on your mind, recent studies have shown CBD Oil to be an effective and natural option for patients in need of sleeping aids.
Researchers understand that sleep has multiple cycles with different phases. CBD oil increases the third phase, the phase of deep sleep, and shortens the period of REM sleep, a phase of light sleep. REM is the phase where dreams occur. By reducing the REM sleep, people dream less, memory is improved, and symptoms of depression are decreased.
International studies that have been conducted over the years reveal promising findings –
A study carried out in 2006 showed that CBD may have an impact on the sleep mechanism of rats.
In a pre-clinical study, it was found that administering 10-20 micrograms of CBD into specific areas of the brain increased wakefulness and decreased slow-wave and REM sleep. This increased alpha brain waves, which promotes alertness, and suppressed delta waves, which are needed for deep sleep. **Only a pre-clinical study
Another study revealed that CBD decreases symptoms of insomnia by fighting off anxiety, a common factor that is responsible for causing insomnia.
Studies of blood tests have proven that CBD oil influences the dopamine levels in our bloodstream during sleep. This leads to a better and more relaxed sleep.
