Sleep impacts every single aspect of our lives. According to a report on “Neurocognitive Consequences of Sleep Deprivation” many patients struggle with alertness, a lowered attention span, poor memory and increased risk of accidents. These patients on average slept 5-7 hours a night.
Studies also indicate that loss of sleep increases the risk of obesity, hypertension, heart disease, immune dysfunction and other problems.
Sleep is a critical factor in the well-being of a person. Individuals suffer from various sleep disorders such as Insomnia, Narcolepsy, Circadian Rhythm Disorders, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and Sleep Apnea.
For those struggling with these sleep disorders, you’ve most likely tried almost every sleep remedy there is in hope of getting a better night’s rest. But have you tried CBD?
CBD has shown great promise across countless studies such as patients struggling with arthritis, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, and anxiety. It is also being tested as a possible solution for sleep-related problems.
A report from the NCBI states, “Preliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia.”
According to the report, CBD may ease the sleep process in individuals with insomnia and improve a person’s REM sleep cycle. REM stands for rapid eye movement. It’s the last stage to occur in a sleep cycle and it happens after 70-90 minutes of sleep. However, some individuals may have REM sleep disorders such as having a decreased REM sleep state which is the stage that dreaming occurs.
CBD’s effectiveness per individual can also be affected by the amount taken. Regular and consistent usage of CBD is what leads to the best long-term results. In one study, patients with insomnia were given 160mg of CBD per day and saw improved sleep and decreased REM interruptions. We’ve had many customers reach out and share their experience using our Sleep CBD mentioning how our softgels with 5 mg of PCR hemp oil and 1 mg of Melatonin has helped them get better sleep. Although more research is still underway, we’re excited to see the impact Sana CBD can make on a good night’s sleep.
