The recent growth of legal medicinal and recreational cannabis in many states has helped to draw attention to non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD).

According to Forbes, CBD research shows nearly two-thirds of adults in the United States think CBD is safer for users than alcohol. CBD’s potential as an effective alternative to prescription drugs or over-the-counter sleep aids makes it worth studying for its potential benefits.

CBD Could Help You to Overcome Many Sleep Disorders

CBD is the second-most common cannabinoid that cannabis contains following THC. The non-psychoactive properties of CBD make it easier to use for medicinal purposes without triggering negative effects like THC. CBD research from the Sleep Foundation shows it can counteract many sleep disorders, including insomnia, REM sleep behavior, and daytime sleepiness. Additional CBD research might suggest standardized dosages for people seeking relief from their sleeping disorders.

CBD Relieves Anxiety

The National Institutes of Health affirms that CBD is effective at reducing anxiety, and reduced anxiety makes it easier to sleep. The calming effect of CBD soothes the nervous system and can stimulate the serotonin system. The result is a more relaxed body that makes it a lot easier to settle in for a good night’s sleep. When your anxiety is eased, your body and mind find it easier to relax.

CBD Doesn’t Cause a ‘High’

Research affirms that CBD has no psychoactive effects that would affect your motor skills or reaction times. It also will not produce the anxiety-inducing effects that some products containing THC would in patients, which could rob them of sleep. Instead of generating a “high” like THC commonly does, CBD has no psychoactive effects and merely soothes the body. As a result, CBD might be a potentially very safe alternative to current anxiety medications.

If you struggle to fall or stay asleep, CBD may be the ideal solution for you.
