Of all the uses for CBD, treating insomnia and helping people sleep is one of the most common. When taken, CBD interacts with the endocrine system via the endocannabinoid system and can directly affect hormone levels in the body. This hormones regulation property of CBD it what allows it to help with improving sleep patterns.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. While it is derived from the same plant as THC, it doesn’t have the same psychoactive properties. This means that you cannot get “high” from CBD, and its effects on the body are purely therapeutic.
New research suggests that CBD may have a sedative effect and may help people fall asleep more easily. Through hormone regulation, CBD can improve melatonin levels in the body by regulating cortisol. CBD may also help reduce anxiety, which can make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
It is important to note that CBD is not a replacement for traditional medical treatment for sleep disorders. If you are having difficulty sleeping or if you have a diagnosed sleep disorder, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment.
