CBD for Sleep Get Started Product Benefits Science
Did you know that a growing epidemic in America is sleep deprivation? Lack of sleep, poor quality sleep and sleep disturbances are a national problem that millions of people experience on a daily basis. Research continues to prove that a good night’s sleep is essential to your overall health and well-being. The reality is, we need energy and rest to tackle the days ahead and feel our best.
Proper sleep continues to have countless benefits that include better gut health, mental and emotional health, a healthy immune system and the repair and growth of our muscles, tissues, tendons, joints and bones and so much more.
CBD has become a popular sleep tool for many people so we want to outline the science behind hemp CBD and the benefits it provides in helping you fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Although the research on CBD for sleep is still preliminary, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence to support CBD use for sleep as a powerful and effective all-natural approach that helps the body transition from rapid eye movement (REM) sleep to non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep more quickly. Some people who use CBD for chronic pain report significant improvements in sleep. The science supporting CBD oil to treat stress and anxiety relief, pain relief and reducing full body inflammation leads scientists to believe this is why people are also experiencing better sleep. Research also suggests that even low doses of CBD for sleep can still be effective. More isn’t always merrier with CBD use, but higher doses of CBD are sedating. It’s important to go low and slow, building a personalized CBD for sleep routine that works for you.
The FDA doesn’t regulate dosing of non-drug CBD products, as a result the amount of CBD in products varies drastically. Research shows that 1mg of CBD per 1lb body weight can be taken safely on a daily basis. It is always recommended to go low and slow with CBD ingestibles (gummies, softgel capsules, oil tinctures and drinks), building up your dosage as needed.
For CBD gummies and gel capsules, starting with one serving size (25mg CBD), then gradually working your way up is recommended. CBD gummies and softgel capsules can be felt within 30-45 minutes and can last up to 4-6 hours.
CBD oils tinctures are highly concentrated oil blends you can dose specifically to suit your sleep needs. Take a serving size (10-60mg of CBD) dropper, drop under your tongue (or sublingually), let it sit for 30 seconds or up to 2 minutes, then swallow. The effects can be felt almost immediately, within 15-20 minutes, lasting up to 4-6 hours. Concentrated CBD oil blends are the most effective way to absorb CBD oil into your bloodstream.
