Everyone knows how important sleep is and how detrimental it is when we don’t get the sleep we need. Whether we are suffering from health conditions or we just have poor sleeping habits it can wreak havoc on our lives if we lack restorative sleep. With all of the sleep aid medications on the market these days it’s difficult to find one without side effects that don’t have addictive properties and actually helps you sleep and more importantly feel rested. If this is the case for you Cbd may be just what you been looking for.
CBD AIDS IN RELAXATION
There are many types of ailments and conditions that CBD is used to treat and relaxation is one of them. When you feel relaxed or calm it’s much easier for you to fall asleep. This is where Cbd comes in. Many people have reported that the only side effect that they have experienced while taking CBD is an overall feeling of relaxation. Since many times our sleep issues begin from not being able to relax our mind and body this is good news.
If you are planning on using CBD to help you sleep it is recommended to take your dose approximately an hour before you’d like to fall asleep. This gives your body enough time to process the CBD and help you feel relaxed.
WHAT IS CBD AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cbd or Cannabidiol is a Cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. This cannabinoid functions similarly to another cannabinoid called THC which you may have heard of. Though it is similar, it does not have any of the psychotropic effects that THC has, so you won’t experience that stoned feeling when using Cbd.
Cbd and other cannabinoids work together with the endocanabinoid system in your body. The endocanabinoid system is found in every major body system you have therefore it allows cbd and other cannabinoids to positively affect those areas.
HOW TO USE CBD
Cbd can be taken in a variety of different ways and some samples of this are capsules, tinctures, e-liquid and gummies. Though there is no right or wrong way when it comes to which of these work, it has been found through scientific studies that taking CBD sublingually (absorbed under the tongue) is extremely effective and seems to be the quickest way to feel results. To take Cbd sublingually you will need to use a tincture.
- HOW TO USE A TINCTURE:
- before using your tincture make sure to thoroughly shake the bottle. This ensures that the ingredients inside are mixed well.
- Next, squeeze the top of the dropper to fill it up.
- Squirt the tincture underneath your tongue.
- Hold it under your tongue for at least 30 seconds before swallowingIn order for the Cbd to be absorbed properly.
CBD works best when it is used on a continual basis so we always recommend using CBD every day for approximately two weeks before making a decision on if it’s working for you or not. If you aren’t feeling the desired effects, most likely your dose is too low and you should try upping the amount you consume. Cbd doses are trying with error because everyone’s body is different so we each require a different amounts to achieve the desired effect.
Cbd is quickly becoming a big contender in medicinal treatments both holistically as well as in mainstream medicine. . Studies have shown that it can be used to treat a plethora of symptoms and conditions and poor sleep is definitely one of those included.
