Getting enough sleep can be a challenging goal for many people and when you aren’t giving your body the rest it needs, you eventually start to feel the consequences physically and mentally. Almost half of all Americans say they feel sleepy during the day between three and seven days per week and although there is prescription medication to promote sleep, it is not always the best option. About 80% of people who take prescription sleep medications experienced residual effects like oversleeping, feeling groggy, or having a hard time concentrating the next day. If you are looking for a natural way to get a good night's sleep and to wake up feeling refreshed then CBD may be the right sleep aid for you.
Understanding the importance of sleep and its countless health benefits is the first step on your sleep journey. A healthy sleep schedule is linked to a wide variety of health benefits such as a healthy heart, blood sugar regulation, stress management, and memory. However, if you struggle with insomnia or anxiety then you know firsthand how tough or impossible it is to get enough sleep or simply fall asleep.
When you introduce CBD into your nighttime routine you are directly working with your endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps control many functions in your body such as stress, sleep, and immune function to name a few. The endocannabinoids system has three components: receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. CBD works with the ECS system to promote natural homeostasis by communicating with the ECS receptors. You can read more about the endocannabinoid system here.
CBD may positively enhance your rest and relaxation by decreasing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and increasing a deep sleep by shifting your REM cycle into a deeper NREM cycle. CBD may also benefit people who suffer from general anxiety or other anxiety disorders by promoting a feeling of calmness, which ultimately leads to relaxation and falling asleep quicker.
There are a wide variety of ways to use CBD such as topically, ingesting, or inhaling. Suggested uses and dosages are all dependent on a variety of factors including, which product you are using, the brand, body weight, and what you are trying to achieve. At Treadwell Farms, we have a variety of CBD products that promote a healthy sleep routine whether you prefer to inhale, ingest or topically apply.
Our Evening Blend Extract and Restore Roll-On promotes relaxation and encourages a night of restful sleep. We encourage you to incorporate one or both of these products into your nightly routine. The Treadwell Evening Blend Extract is a blend of organic CBD hemp extract, sunflower lecithin, organic MCT oil, and a custom botanical blend of Valerian Root, Lemon Balm, Vanilla, and Chamomile that promotes calmness and relaxation. If you have trouble falling asleep this should be taken 30-40 minutes before your desired bedtime.
If you have trouble staying asleep this should be taken right before you go to sleep. Our roll-ons are intended to be used where you need them the most so if achy muscles or joints are keeping you up at night then the Restore Roll-On may be perfectly crafted for you and your sleep needs, plus the lavender scent helps you ease into an evening of rest and relaxation.
