Are you finding yourself tossing and turning throughout the night? Checking the clock every few minutes? Waking up at random times in the early morning? You’re not alone, and these difficult times have not made getting a full night’s rest easy.
When your sleep schedule is interrupted, it’s common to wake up feeling lethargic and unenergized. You may even begin to dread bedtime knowing that you will have to go through the inconsistent cycle all over again.
In fact, there are 70 million Americans who toss and turn at night, and are currently struggling to find a remedy. You might think, “I’ll take a nap during the day” or, “I’ll have an extra shot of espresso in the morning.” These seem like harmless solutions, but in reality, they can cause a detrimental effect on your overall health.
Cue, CBD oil.
Will CBD help me sleep?
CBD is one of the main cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. It interacts with your endocannabinoid system which helps to relieve the stressors in your mind that can prevent you from falling asleep. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that it won’t make you feel “high”.
Many studies have found that CBD helps the quality of sleep by relieving stress and overwhelment on the body. In the study, Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series, it was found that 66.7% of patients’ sleep scores improved within just the first month.
CBD Dosage For Sleep
The most common questions we get asked when those are beginning a journey with CBD specifically for sleep is, “when should I take CBD for sleep, and what dosage should I take?”
We recommend starting with 1 Sleepy gummy taken 25-30 minutes before bed when you feel like you may have a restless night ahead. Like with any supplement, it’s always a good idea to start small and see how your body responds. You can then gradually work your way up to a higher dose if needed.
Sleepy has been considered the best CBD product for sleep because it not only contains 10mg of CBD from full spectrum hemp per gummy, but it is also formulated with other natural ingredients to banish those sleepless nights.
Here are a few great times to take CBD for sleep and why.
When To Take CBD for Sleep
Feeling overwhelmed from a stressful day at work.
Sleepy was formulated with 5-HTP and GABA to help your mind relax, and leave unfinished work for the next day. 5-HTP is a naturally sourced amino acid that supports serotonin and melatonin production to help induce sleep and enhance sleep quality. GABA, also a natural amino acid, will then tell the brain to pull the reins back, and to stop overworking.
Coming to the realization that you had one too many cups of coffee.
Don’t worry – we’ve all been there. This is why we formulated the peach flavored CBD Gummies with L-Theanine. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea, and is known to counter the effects of caffeine, and put your mind in a state of total relaxation.
After completing an intense afternoon workout.
Sometimes when we workout in the late afternoon it can stimulate our brain and give us a second wave of energy. CBD has been known as a great natural way to help relax the body and calm the mind. CBD has also been known to help with muscle tension and inflammation.
That time of the month.
Did you know that most women find it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep in the days leading up to their period? Studies have shown that women spend less time in REM sleep causing them to feel less rested. This is why we formulated our sleep gummy with Evening primrose oil, a wildflower extract high in essential fatty acid to help balance women’s hormones.
We also included a low dose of melatonin because it is the body’s natural sleep hormone that can help govern wake cycles. Taking too much melatonin can cause sluggishness the next morning, but just the right amount before bed can help nudge you to sleep without the grogginess the next morning.
A Balanced Sleep
When it comes to CBD for sleep aid, our priority is to provide women with the best ingredients so they feel the most confident, calm and collected versions of themselves ALWAYS.
