Some fortunate souls fall asleep within minutes of turning out the lights. The rest of us are losing precious hours of sleep tossing, turning, and trying to relax. If stress, racing thoughts, or physical discomfort are keeping you awake, maybe it’s time to try a safe, natural product with considerable sleep-promoting potential, CBD.
CBD could be one of the best natural products for sleep support. The results of an internal survey of more than 2000 respondents reveal that CBDistillery™ CBD products are helping 9 out of 10 CBD users fall asleep faster and get the rest they deserve. Some of our most enthusiastic feedback comes from CBD users investing in products specifically formulated for nighttime use.
The calming, sleep-promoting potential of cannabidiol (CBD) is well-documented. While early reports were based on observation and anecdotal evidence, today, we have a much better understanding of how CBD works.
Current research shows that CBD mimics the effects of two important chemical messengers produced in your body to relay urgent signals to their corresponding receptors, the receptors of your endocannabinoid system (ECS). That’s an important discovery. Investigators found that the communication between ECS messengers and receptors regulates nearly every essential function in your body, everything from organ function to your moods, emotions, and circadian rhythms.
But stress, injury, and illness can create a demand for ECS messengers that exceeds the available supply. When that happens, communication stalls. Since the effects of CBD are determined by which essential processes might be restored to balance through ECS support, it makes sense that so many of our survey respondents report favorable results for a wide range of issues that can interfere with restful sleep.
According to the results of our internal survey, numerous satisfied customers (89%) claim that using CBD at night helps calm their minds and relax their bodies. Whether you’re looking for nightly sleep support or a natural way to ease the effects of a particularly eventful day, CBD could do the same for you. Although any high-quality CBD tincture, capsule, or gummy has sleep-promoting potential, we’ve developed a selection of products specifically formulated for nighttime use. Consider using one of the following products 30 minutes to an hour before turning in for the night:
*Third-party tested to ensure non-detectable levels of THC (less than .01%)
Knowing how much CBD oil to take is a common concern for first-time CBD users. Although you’ll find serving size suggestions on product labels, it’s important to remember that everyone’s body chemistry is different. A serving size found to work well for most people could be different than the amount of CBD oil that works for you. That’s why most experts recommend starting with a small amount and increase gradually.
For example, product labels typically suggest a serving size of one full dropper (1mL) of CBD oil. First-time users might want to start with half that amount, or even less. If you don’t find the relief you were hoping for, gradually increase that amount while keeping in mind that it could take hours, days, or even weeks for your system to respond. Whether you choose to increase that amount each night or wait a week or more before making changes is up to you.
CBD + CBN Oil is a blend of full-spectrum hemp extract, cannabigerol isolate, and a carrier oil, a tincture. CBD tinctures are quite popular with CBD users because of their remarkable versatility. Although you could stir your CBD + CBN Oil into your favorite products, you’ll get faster results using your CBD + CBN Oil sublingually.
The sublingual method is quite easy, simply shake the bottle, measure a serving size, and place the oil under your tongue. Hold for 15-20 seconds, then swallow. Holding the oil before swallowing allows time for the CBD and CBN to enter your bloodstream through the blood vessels beneath your tongue. Sublingual absorption is more efficient, and fewer cannabinoids are lost through digestion.
CBD is a safe, non-intoxicating botanical well-tolerated by most people. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems” resulting from CBD use.2 However, the WHO also notes that most side effects of CBD are the result of drug interactions, meaning CBD may not be right for everyone. If you have a medical condition or take medication, please discuss your interest in CBD with your healthcare provider.
Although the risk of side effects is impressively low, the WHO also notes that some users report minor side effects after ingesting large amounts of CBD oil. While most CBD users responding to our internal customer survey have never experienced adverse effects, consider adjusting your intake if you experience fatigue, dry mouth, or digestive disturbances. Your symptoms could be a sign that you’re using more CBD than you might need.
The quality of the CBD products you select will have a considerable impact on your overall experience. But with the CBD industry largely unregulated, that all-important product quality can vary by manufacturer. Far too many companies are selling misrepresented, mislabeled products of questionable quality, products unlikely to deliver results.
You can protect yourself from a potentially disappointing experience by selecting non-GMO hemp-derived products sourced from naturally cultivated crops. You’ll also want to be sure the manufacturer relies on food-safe extraction methods and third-party testing through an independent, cannabis accredited lab. Third-party testing confirms product potency while screening for heavy metals, solvent residues, and microbial contamination. Since any company can claim their products are third-party tested, the most reputable companies allow consumer access to those test results.
Stress, discomfort, and changes in your routine can keep you from getting the rest you need. If you spend more time tossing and turning than you would like, wake feeling fatigued, or need a nap to get through the day, consider investing in the many potential benefits of CBDistillery™ products formulated specifically for nighttime use.
CBDistillery™ is a vertically integrated company, a distinction that means we have full control over every aspect of product production, from the planting and harvesting of our non-GMO crops to the distribution of our third-party tested products. You can verify the quality, purity, and potency of every CBDistillery™ tincture, capsule, topical, gummy, and CBD pet product by viewing the third-party test results on our product pages or scanning the QR code on your product label.
