We’ve all experienced it…You’re getting ready to go to bed. You’re tired and thinking about how great getting a good night’s sleep is going to feel. You climb into your cozy bed and wrap your warm sheets tightly around you. You feel like you’re about to drift off into dreamland any minute so you turn out the light on the night stand and BOOM…You’re wide awake.
Don’t worry, if you have experienced this…You Are NOT Alone!
In fact…The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently stated that about 33% of the U.S. population (About 100 MILLION people) aren’t getting a full night’s sleep. On top of that…Almost 80% of Americans say that at least once a week, they have trouble sleeping.
So, with that many of us not actually getting the rest at night that we need…
We have to ask…What causes so many of us to not be sleeping at night?
A lot of research tells us that anxiety, stress, depression, and chronic pain are some of the most common causes of insomnia.
As someone who has suffered from anxiety and stress related insomnia for many years, I looked at everything under the sun to fix the problem that I was experiencing night after night. I mean, a lack of sleep has serious negative affects on our overall health…not to mention our overall mood.
So, I started trying different sleep aids…But many existing treatments, particularly prescription and over-the-counter drugs, are often mildly effective at best…and come along with many well known side effects.
My search for the perfect sleep aid brought me across this little thing called CBD.
CBD is a compound that is derived from a plant, and can be used in oils, topical ointments, edible gummies, pills, along with many other options. CBD interacts with the receptors in the central nervous system (mainly the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabiod system) that aid with pain relief, inflammation, relaxation, and therefore sleep.
CBD is commonly used for many things…But what attracted me the most was that for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that not only does CBD help with falling asleep, it also helps with staying asleep.
With all of this pointing me in the direction of CBD…I knew I had to try it. I also knew that I wanted the most potent…the most pure CBD out there.
