How To Take CBD Oil for Healthy and Peaceful Sleep

CBD oil for a perfect sleep.

A good night’s rest is essential for overall health and mental wellbeing. Doctors recommend getting 7-9 hours of sleep a night as part of a health regime. Failure to sleep for a healthy amount of hours leaves you vulnerable to a range of other types of diseases. Having proper sleeping habits can help with: 

  • Feeling more rested
  • Increasing memory retention
  • Growing and repairing muscles and tissue
  • Preventing illnesses

Sleep deprivation is characterized as the inability to get the required amount of sleep for whatever reason. If you are one of the millions of people a year who struggle to fall asleep an easy solution may be within your grasp. 

Common causes of sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation can be caused by many different things. Stress and anxiety as well as sleep disorders like insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and even restless leg syndrome are just a few of the more common causes of sleep deprivation. 

In recent years the leading cause of sleep deprivation has been job-related stress and anxiety. Millions of people struggle to fall asleep peacefully because of a highly stressful working environment. Statistics show that over 60% of the working population struggle to maintain healthy sleeping habits because they are constantly thinking about work or are anxious about upcoming projects. This often results in poor sleep quality. 

Regardless of the reason, sleep deprivation is something that needs to be treated before it starts affecting your health. Sleep deprivation can affect more than just your daily mood. Being constantly deprived of a good night’s rest can lead to other physiological problems such as heart disease, constant forgetfulness, poor memory retention, and a perpetually weak immune system.

How does CBD Oil help overcome sleep deprivation?

The endocannabinoid system is a network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system that regulates the circadian rhythm and maintains other physiological functions like mood and sleeping patterns. Scientific studies show that CBD oil interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain and affects the sleep/wake cycle. 

Anxiety-related disorders are some of the most common psychiatric conditions treated across the world. It is estimated that nearly 300 million people have suffered or are currently suffering from some type of anxiety disorder such as social anxiety disorder (SAD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), PTSD, or OCD. CBD oil works to calm the central nervous system and has medicinal properties that are known to help decrease pain and anxiety. Your quality of sleep can be drastically improved simply by alleviating these symptoms. 

A study conducted in 2020, showed that people who take CBD oil for anxiety or depression reported noticeable improvements in their ability to perform and complete their day-to-day tasks with reduced symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression. 70% of the participants in this study reported a significantly higher level of satisfaction with their overall lives, feeling more rested and energized about life.  

Although more research still needs to be conducted. Preliminary results show that CBD oil is very effective in improving sleep for people who suffer from insomnia. Or poor sleep quality brought on by stress and anxiety.

What To Consider before using CBD Oil to treat sleep disorders

What to consider when choosing CBD Oil - Vaperite - Cannarite

Dosage is very important. Although it is highly unlikely for you to overdose on CBD Oil, there are many other ways your body can respond to it. The effect CBD oil has on your quality of sleep depends on how much you take and how it’s going through your body. In small doses, CBD oil can increase your energy levels and stimulate alertness. However, in larger doses, it is popular for soothing physical pain and allows for an easier, gentler transition into the sleep/wake cycle. When taken orally, using oil; sublingual sprays, or edibles, CBD can start taking effect anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours later. Whereas, smoking or vaping CBD-containing products produces more of an immediate effect.

Long-term use of CBD Oil can result in dependency and withdrawal. This means that you may ultimately get to a point where your mind and body can’t go to sleep on their own, without using CBD oil causing more sleep problems. Albeit rare, CBD oil can cause some undesirable side effects, such as impaired balance especially when you are getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. So we suggest you sit up first before getting on your feet to avoid hurting yourself.

Risks and side effects

CBD products can be taken at concentrations as high as 1500mg a day. However, there are some noticeable side effects that you should be aware of. 

Side effects include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss

The main thing to remember is that using CBD oil and other CBD products to improve your quality of sleep, might not work for you on the first try. Before attempting and committing to anything, do your research and ask all the relevant questions. You will most likely have to try a range of different doses and product types before you find what works best for you. 

Product Recommendations to alleviate sleep disorders

You can purchase CBD as is or in other products like:

In particular, CBD oil is available in many different concentrations.
