CBD has been making the runs around on social media and on the news. With the enactment of the Hemp Act in 2018, the industry flourished overnight and the consumers were left with a whole range of CBD products to choose from. There weren’t any decades trusted manufacturers, but many were new and coming. Of the several questions that puzzled the consumer who were beginning to enter the world of CBD, one that was asked often was whether CBD use will make you tired or sleepy?
We will attempt to answer that question the best way we can and help dispel some of the misconceptions that are on the minds of the readers. Read on.
Does CBD Make You Sleepy?
Yes, but not in the way you think. The reason for this wrongly attached stigma is because CBD or cannabidiol is in more than one way linked to its parent, the cannabis plant. This is also the reason why there are still some amongst us who think that CBD is the same as the psychoactive plant. The truth behind this is that those effects of feeling drowsy, or high, or feeling the munchies are due to the presence of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a potent psychoactive drug present in marijuana.
CBD is purely therapeutic and showcases absolutely no psychoactive properties-meaning you can take it in without worries.
CBD And Sleep
Pure CBD is a natural compound that induces sleep gradually. It is not a sedative, and simply taking it will not make you sleep in a couple of minutes. CBD is a therapeutic compound that relaxes the body and helps you slip into a deeper and higher quality sleep cycle.
The reason for CBD putting you in a tranquil and relaxed state is due to its interaction with a unique system in the human body called the Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS plays a key role in regulating your circadian rhythm; the rhythm that maintains your sleep cycles based on the response to light and dark in the environment-day and night.
Those who are suffering from sleeplessness and acute or chronic forms of insomnia can get some much-needed rest and sleep with CBD. This would enable the body’s natural circadian rhythm to kick into action and help restore balance.
CBD does promote good quality sleep by means of enhancing the production of feel-good hormones, which put the user in a better, livelier mood. Welcome good sleep into your lives with the help of CBD.
