Cannabidiol and its influence on your sleep cycle
The vast majority of people suffering from sleeping disorders neglect their issues for years. Why is that?
Difficulty getting into sleep, having trouble sleeping? Or waking up early: a large group of people experience problems sleeping, often referred to as sleeping disorders. A good night’s sleep is not only important to function well, but also to prevent health damage. Chronic sleep disorders increase the risk of getting diseases and other health issues. But it also causes reduced energy, concentration and memory problems, and even irritability. On the list of natural remedies that are used to battle sleeping disorders, CBD oil is getting increasingly important.
Most individuals with sleeping problems considered these to have an impact on their daily functioning, with family life most affected in the Western European sample, personal activities in the US sample and professional activities in the Japanese sample.
Sleeping problems neglected by most people
Almost half of the individuals with sleep problems had never taken any steps to resolve them, and the majority of respondents had not spoken with a physician about their problems.
It is especially the women who have sleep problems. Women generally sleep a little longer than men, but they have more difficulties getting into sleep, and use more sleep medication than men, according to this study.11 percent of women in the age group 41 to 65 years use sleep medication vs. 4.6 percent of the men, in the age group 65+ this is even 17.5 percent of women vs. 6.1 percent of men.
Medication and sleeping disorders
Not everyone is keen to use sleeping pills. They can help you sleep better for one or a few days, but sleeping medication also has many disadvantages. For example, they have side effects such as drowsiness during the day and can cause concentration problems. They increase the risk of falling (elderly people) and therefore increase the risk of fractures. In any case, general practitioners are careful when prescribing these so-called benzodiazepines because you get used/hooked to them quickly. If you use them every day for a week, the effect decreases. So you need more and more sleeping tablets to be able to sleep. In short: within a few weeks, you become addicted and dependent on such a drug. Doctors only recommend them if the need is very high and then only for a few days or temporarily.
Natural resources against sleeping disorders
Natural substances such as melatonin, chamomile, and valerian have been sold for years in the fight against insomnia. Relatively new in this list is cannabidiol or CBD oil as a natural tranquilizer. In the endocannabinoid system in the brain, the brain produces a type of marijuana that is native to the body: endocannabinoid 2-AG (arachidonoylglycerol), a protein-created substance that has the same effect as THC, the active component in marijuana. The brain produces another type of marijuana, anandamide. The exact role of both substances is not clear, but this includes the regulation of appetite, pain sensation, memory and anxiety. And a lack of it can cause complaints such as concentration disorders, insomnia and restlessness.

Can CBD help you sleep better?
Although further scientific research is needed into the functioning of the endocannabinoid system, CBD seems to be a natural alternative to prescription sleep aids. CBD generally does not cause any side effects and can be used by almost anyone.
