As part of our mission at Nature Science, we’d like to educate the crowd so that misleading information and thus fallacies about cannabis wouldn’t create further confusion and a barrier for potential customers in experiencing the positive effects of products extracted from this wonderful plant.Among others, CBD is anxiolytic, anti-psychotic, antidepressant, antispasmodic and neuroprotective. The latter means that it can provide protection against injuries to the brain and the nervous system. In order to understand whether CBD can improve our sleep, it’s important to find the root cause. There are numerous reasons why we can have sleep difficulties, such as:
-mental health disorders, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression
-drug treatment, which can affect the sleep/wake cycle
-physical symptoms, such as chronic pain or restless legs syndrome (RLS)
-caffeine, especially when consumed later in the day
-environmental factors, such as loud noises or an uncomfortable bed
If the sleeplessness is caused by external factors and their accompanying symptoms, CBD can help in their treatment. Amongst many, a 2019 research published in The Permanente Journal revealed that CBD can actually improve sleep and reduce anxiety. There were 72 subjects, of which 47 experienced anxiety and 25 experienced sleep difficulties. The subjects were given 25 mg CBD daily in the form of a capsule. Only in the first month, 79,2% of them reported lower levels of anxiety and 66,7% of them could sleep better. Furthermore, CBD is proven to help in the treatment of chronic pain that can potentially cause sleep disorders.
Of course, it’s always highly recommended to do comprehensive research or consult with a doctor in advance of taking it.
We’re here and working on bringing you closer to this world, step by step.
