Sleep Aids You’ve Never Thought of Before
Why some are turning to CBD when they have a sleep issue
If you’re anything like many adults in our fast-paced world today, chances are good that you’re tired. Sometimes, our world seems to move at a mile a minute. We are constantly running in one direction and then another, and it is easy for it to seem as if there is always something to do. While it is understandable to get fatigued, it can be difficult to function optimally each day when you are simply too tired and lack the energy that you need to perform at your best. This can be difficult for anyone, but it can particularly be so when you’re tired, not only from a long day but also because your fatigue is compounded by sleeplessness and insomnia.
As many who have struggled with sleeplessness and insomnia know, it can be extremely frustrating to lie in bed at night after the end of a busy day, wanting to fall asleep and simply being unable to. As the minutes’ tick by, you can feel a panic about whether or not you’ll ever fall asleep in time to get enough rest for the next day. This is understandable, and it can be extremely frustrating.
Many who struggle with sleeplessness are in search of relief. However, many do not want to turn to prescription medications that can cause a number of other unwanted side effects, including dependency. But the choice shouldn’t have to be between serious side effects and dependency and feeling better. In an ideal world, you should be able to get the sleep you need to function the next day without having to accept the negative side effects that you don’t want.
What Is CBD?
Many have heard of CBD as there is currently a great deal of news about it in the health and wellness community. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is extracted directly from a variety of the cannabis plant. It is what is known as a cannabinoid–one of more than 100 cannabinoids produced by the hemp plant.
When cannabinoids are ingested, they interact with the endocannabinoid system already present in the bodies of all mammals – people and pets included. That system is in charge of maintaining a healthy balance in our bodies. It helps to regulate our metabolism, the secretion of our hormones and neurotransmitters and helps to regulate temperature. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We have cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies and CBD interacts with those receptors as well.
Many associate CBD with marijuana as both products come from the cannabis plant. While marijuana is believed to have medicinal properties and health benefits, it is actually a very different strain of the cannabis plant than the strain that which CBD is extracted from. Marijuana contains high levels of THC, which is the psychoactive compound responsible for the “stoned” feeling that users get when they take marijuana. Palm Organix™ CBD products are sourced from Industrial Hemp which has low levels of THC. At Palm Organix™, we remove all the THC delivering to our customers a 100% THC free product.
Can CBD Help with Sleep?
How might CBD help as a sleep aid? It’s a good question. Those who have researched the effect of CBD on the brain have found strong indications that CBD may affect sleep by interacting with endocannabinoid receptors in our brains that govern our daily sleep and wake cycles.
Palm Organix™ offers CBD in a number of forms for easy consumption. Some people prefer to take CBD in softgel form while others choose tinctures, and still, others use topical applications. While finding the correct serving and time of day to take CBD may take some trial and error, many quickly arrive at the right amount for their needs.
It is very important to remember that choosing a reputable provider from whom to purchase CBD products can make a significant difference. As is the case with any product, not all CBD products are created equal. It is important to find a company like Palm Organix ™, that focuses on quality from the very beginning – with the hemp that the CBD is extracted from. Palm Organix focuses on organic growing practices and high-quality control standards from the very beginning. This ensures that the product that is ultimately delivered to the customer is pure and potent, and includes the ingredients that are wanted without the harmful chemicals, pesticides, and solvents that are not.
