Trouble Sleeping? CBD Melatonin May Be Your New Best Friend



A good night’s rest may arguably be a luxury. According to the American Sleep Apnea Association 50-70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Of that number, numerous sleep disorders are also associated with anxiety, mood disorders, and depression. As more individuals turn to natural medicine, a combination of CBD and melatonin may be one of the best remedies to target the physical and mental areas affecting sleep. Unlike herbal supplements, CBD and melatonin are actually naturally occurring in the human body which makes them easily absorbable. 

CBD

CBD, cannabidiol, is the non psychoactive compound found in cannabis or hemp. CBD does not include the psychoactive properties found in THC, however it still has a breadth of mental health benefits. According to Michael Breus, a clinical psychologist and board-certified sleep specialist, mentioned in a 2017 HuffPost article, CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. CBD may also improve insomnia by increasing overall sleep amount and regulating deep REM sleep.


Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone that assists in regulating our body’s circadian rhythm. Our circadian rhythm essentially tells us to wake up when the sun is out, and to sleep when it grows dark. Expert Luis F. Buenaver, Ph.D., C.B.S.M from John Hopkins mentions that when melatonin levels rise in the evening it puts you into a state of quiet wakefulness that helps promote sleep.
