Stress+Anxiety=INSOMNIA! Can CBD Oil Help?
Many people don’t even think about it, and many have no problem doing it. How hard is it, right? You just lay down, close your eyes, and when you open them again, it’s morning. Nothing to it.
Sadly though, for many people, it is not that easy. In fact, for many people, falling asleep can be as elusive a goal as finding a unicorn. It is not simply a matter of laying down and closing their eyes. For many people, a good night’s sleep is nothing but a frustrating dream. Doctors can rarely do more than prescribe pills which often cause more harm rather than helping.
So what can you do when sleeping, which is so important to our health, is not something you’re good at?
Recent studies have shown there is a highly effective alternative to pills or other remedies that can be quite harmful. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis, which means that it provides health benefits without causing the “high” associated with cannabis. Naturally, we are all different, and our body’s reactions will not be exactly the same as the next person’s. That is why you need to consult your physician about the possible benefits, or possible harmful effects, of cbd oil.
You may be wondering how cannabidiol helps you sleep, or why it is effective for some but not for others. No two people are exactly the same, but researchers have had enough of a group to be able to effectively study the effects, both harmful and beneficial.
Many studies show that the anti-axiolytic component of cannabidiol helps people resist anxiety, panic attacks, and any general depression that they may be experiencing in their every day lives. Anxiety is the key word here, as that is a huge factor in what keeps you awake through the night. Taking away the anxiety makes it easier to fall asleep, and enhances your ability to bring about restorative sleeping habits.
Another benefit of treating your insomnia with cannabidiol oil is that it is not as restrictive as taking a pill and has far fewer harmful side effects. Anyone who has ever had to take sleeping pills knows that eventually the pills seem to stop working because your body gets used to them. Sometimes, people may even have to take more of them just to fall asleep. Not to mention that if your body gets too used to the pills you are taking you may find yourself waking in the middle of the night and, unable to take more pills for fear of over dose, you just stay awake. This causes problems in several ways, including increasing your anxiety because you are not getting enough rest. With cannabidiol oil, you can take another drop or two and resume your rest with very little fear of harmful side effects.
Do not be afraid to ask questions of your doctor about CBD oil products, and do research on your own… educate yourself.
CBD is a natural remedy, not a chemical one, and for some that is enough incentive to give it a try. If you are stressed about whether it is safe, you rather defeat it’s effectiveness, so find out what you need to know to set your mind at ease about setting your mind at ease.
