According to the CDC organization, 1 in 3 adults are not getting enough sleep. Continuous lack of sleep can mean a more irritable and unproductive mood during the day, but can also lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and compromised immunity.
Studies have shown how CBD and melatonin can make you feel more relaxed and improve your sleep quality without the groggy feeling the next morning.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and is a naturally occurring compound that can be extracted from the hemp plant. CBD works by stimulating the endocannabinoid system (ESC), which plays an essential role in the body’s ability to maintain a range of biological functions. CBD is able to bind to the receptors and transmitters in our ESC to modulate and balance a spectrum of functions, including memory, appetite, inflammation, mood sleep, and much more.
Hemp-derived CBD products are non-psychoactive and contain very little to no amounts of THC. This means that these products won’t get you “high” but you still get to benefit from the wellness aspect of cannabis to treat pain, anxiety and even insomnia.
How does CBD help with sleep?
The root of not being able to sleep will vary between different people and the problem isn’t as straightforward. Many things can cause you to sleep poorly, including anxiety, depression, pain, physical conditions, and environmental factors.
Recent studies have emphasized how CBD can help to tackle external factors that could lead to sleeplessness. As CBD binds to your body’s cannabinoid receptors, this process helps to make you feel more relaxed by relaxing tense muscles, reduce inflammations that could be causing pain, and also help to regulate your mood, whether you’re feeling anxious or sad. By being in a more relaxed state of mind, this can help you to sleep better throughout the night.
A research conducted by the National Institutes of Health found that by administering 25mg of CBD per day to 72 women, after one month, almost 80% of the participants reported lower anxiety levels and 67% reported better sleep.
What is melatonin?
Melatonin is a common dietary supplement that is available over the counter and is known as a natural sleep aid. Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in your brain and is responsible for regulating your body’s circadian rhythm to manage your sleep cycle.
Various studies have demonstrated how melatonin can help you to fall asleep faster and also enhance overall sleep quality.
How do I take CBD and melatonin together for sleep?
CBD and melatonin can be taken together and there are no severe adverse effects. At GRN, we’ve developed a gummy infused with CBD and melatonin so it’s more convenient to take with the right amount of dosage. Simply take one gummy around 1-2 hours before you intend to sleep. Our customers have mentioned how the CBD melatonin gummies help them to shorten the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and also lengthen total sleep time too. They wake up feeling more refreshed than groggy and tired.
Can I take CBD and melatonin every night? Are there any risks?
Both CBD and melatonin are naturally occurring elements in your body. There are no serious side effects in taking CBD or melatonin every day. In fact, studies have shown how taking CBD daily can help to improve and balance your overall health.
When it comes to insomnia, there isn’t a one-size-fits all solution and we always recommend to include regular exercise and a healthy diet into your lifestyle. If you’re pregnant or taking other medicines, always speak with a health practitioner first before taking CBD or supplements.
