Readers Digest wrote an article recently on the best CBD oils for insomnia.
CBD oil is a natural solution that helps you to sleep. CBD relaxes your system and works as a stress buster; it also calms you down. Therefore, it results in a smooth transition to sleep.
The primary source of CBD products, including CBD oil and other edibles, is the hemp plant. Since the cannabis industry is currently booming, too many products are on the market. This article brings you the brands that offer some of the best CBD oil for sleep.
Now cannabis laws have slowly relaxed around the world, CBD is becoming more and more popular as a supplement with a myriad of benefits – one of which is improved sleep and a reduction of insomnia symptoms.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is an organic compound found in hemp and cannabis plants. You are likely aware of THC, the most famous compound from the cannabis plant. This is the (mostly) illegal substance that gets people “high” and the ingredient for which recreational users smoke cannabis.
While CBD has previously been illegal in the UK as part of a blanket ban on cannabis as a whole, it is now fully legal. THC remains illegal due to its potential for abuse but CBD alone can be used legally in health supplements, skincare products etc.
CBD has become very popular as a sleep supplement as well as to reduce symptoms of related complaints such as anxiety.
A 2019 study found that when test subjects were given 25mg of CBD per day, 66% of them saw improvements in sleep.
Another study concluded that 160mg of CBD provided clear additional sleep benefits over placebo.
There is a strong suggestion that CBD can help reduce cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and cause a mild sedative effect that can help reduce stress, anxiety, encourage relaxation and help with a good night’s sleep.
