Getting to sleep at night can be difficult for some people. We know that the benefits of cannabis oil include helping you sleep and getting rid of your insomnia. People get insomnia for several reasons and many of these are stress-related in our fast-paced world. Take a mother who has to get up for baby every 2 to 3 hours; or an old woman who needs the bathroom several times a night; or someone who lives alone and jumps at every noise in the house? Then there are the workaholics who cannot sleep as their heads are still full of their work and what their colleagues said and what is happening tomorrow and what happened yesterday and…
When you choose a cannabis oil for insomnia, make sure the plant is an indica variety, not a sativa. The sativa is known to increase alertness in the CBD oil, which is not what you want, and the indica is known to increase drowsiness. CBD oil is a non-psychoactive compound yet it can keep you awake if made from the sativa cannabis plant. Indica contains more fragrant contents that are more relaxing. Some studies have shown that of all the cannabinoids, the cannabinoil (CBN) is more sleep-inducing than the cannabidoil (CBD) and the D9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). If you mix the correct quantities of CBN oil you can sleep for up to 6 hours, solidly.
The many causes of insomnia can be related to diet, stress, lack of exercise and too much work. It can also be an effect of feeling overwhelmed, helpless, depressed, traumatic, ill and anxious. Sometimes the room in which you sleep needs to change to become a sleep-inducing environment that is dark, silent and fragrant with essential oils. Insomnia causes ill-health. Those who cannot sleep experience clumsiness, mood swings, daytime sleep exhaustion, forgetfulness, disorientation and lack of focus on tasks at hand. These can be dangerous in the long-term. But there is hope – cannabis oil!
The CBD oil addresses the causes of the insomnia first. Taking your daily dose of cannabis oil will ease your stress, anxiety, feeling of being overwhelmed and feeling helpless which should contribute to better sleep patterns. Some studies have shown that cannabis oil has positive impacts on the dopamine levels in the body, leading to a more relaxed sleep. CBD also helps balance the innate homeostasis in the body as the cannabidoil complements the body’s endocannabinoid system which all boosts immunity and health. So you should sleep better when everything is in a balanced state. It has also been shown that CBD reduces REM sleep which is when we dream so you tend to sleep deeper.
