Can CBD help you sleep?

CBD and Sleep

Suffering from any kind of sleep disorder can affect your day-to-day life. Many people who suffer from a sleep disorder have started to turn their attention towards Cannabidiol (CBD) as a natural solution.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plants. Another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant is THC; this cannabinoid is responsible for delivering the psychoactive effects associated with getting high.

While these two cannabinoids have similar qualities, it’s important to know that unlike THC, CBD does not get you high. As a result, CBD is available for sale in the UK as a ‘food supplement’.

Does CBD help you sleep?

There are many testimonials online from various people who are praising the benefits of CBD for many conditions. However, the benefits of CBD for sleep is an recurring theme in many of the reviews, regardless if they started taking CBD specifically for sleep or not.

Sleep Disorders

Before we go into detail about CBD, it’s important to look at the different types of sleep disorders and the causes.

Although many of us face nights where we can’t sleep due to stress, travel, illness or other temporary distractions. However, if you find you’re facing a night-time battle on a regular basis, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.

Having a sleep disorder isn’t just about feeling a little sleepy during the day, it can take a serious toll on your overall health.

Sleep Disorder as a symptom

In some cases, a sleep disorder can be a symptom as a result of another medical condition or medical treatment. 

This type of sleep disorder may go away once the treatment or underlying condition is treated.

Treatment for sleep disorders

Although a lack of sleep doesn’t seem important enough to see your doctor about. It is important you do see a doctor if you suspect a sleep disorder as early intervention can help treat it sooner and avoid any negative effects.

If a sleep disorder isn’t a result of another medical condition, treatment usually involved a combination of medical treatment and lifestyle changes.

Living with a sleep disorder

Depending on the type and the severity of the sleep disorder, many people find it incredibly difficult to fall asleep and feel tired through-out the day. This lack of sleep can have a serious negative affect on the person’s mood, energy, concentration and overall health.

Sleep disorders affect both mental and physical health of a sufferer. Lack of sleep can lead to memory problems and weight gain and a host of mental health problems. 

Not only this, but as sleep disorders make you feel drained on a day-to-day basis, this can affect daily living. People with sleep disorders often find their performance at work decreases, relationships become more strained and they find their ability to perform daily tasks is impaired.

CBD Oil to help sleep

At CBD Puroil, we're one of very few companies that have a CBD designed just to help you sleep!

CBD Puroil Night Relief 1000mg CBD Oil

The passion flower contains gamma-aminobutyric acid, a chemical that acts on specific parts of the brain to reduce activity and make people feel relaxed and calm. Similar to passion flower, camomile has long been associated with improving sleep quality and reducing anxiety by acting as a mild sedative when the compound alpha-pinene interacts with neurotransmitters in the brain.

Both soothing plants, the combination of passion flower and camomile in our Night Relief CBD oil makes it ideal for those who need a little gentle help to switch off and sleep at night.

At CBD Puroil we believe CBD oil should not only be naturally effective, but also naturally tasty. That’s why we create products enriched with organically grown plant extracts and combine them with an MCT carrier oil for improved taste and absorption.
