How Does Cannabidiol Affect Sleep and Insomnia?

 

Some of us who have begun to take an interest in hemp extracts might be wondering how CBD and hemp may affect sleep. Would it make me sleep too much, due to its often calming properties, or could it help if I have insomnia?

While nearly all of us have had sleeplessness, which only lasts one or two nights; insomnia is much worse, where sufferers regularly have three or more sleepless nights weekly.

It affects one billion people worldwide. It’s estimated that half of the seniors are affected. You may believe that you are just tired and cranky, but this problem might also raise the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.

While many cases of insomnia still don’t have any known cause, the number one known trigger is stress. In a study of people with Social Anxiety Disorder, therapy with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort whilst raising alertness. Compared to people without anxiety, individuals had no real differences in discomfort, alertness, impairment or negative self-statements.

Apart from CBD and hemp, exercise such as swimming oComplications of insomnia. r running, meditation and eating healthier helps to manage stress. Some medicines, depending on the individual, can also aid sleep. These include lemon balm, valerian and chamomile. But when those don’t provide enough positive changes, the most frequent next step is to reach for prescription pharmaceuticals.

Although they are popular, a study by the National Institutes for Health found that sleeping pills add 11 minutes only to sleep on average, although they do seem to shorten the time it takes to get to sleep. They can also have serious side effects, sending people to the emergency room, especially in cases of Infection. Some, like the benzodiazepine class (e.g. Valium), are highly addictive and can kill.

In 2013, benzodiazepines caused 30 percent of lethal drug overdoses in the USA.

In a pre-clinical study, researchers found that administering 10-20 micrograms of CBD into specific regions of the brain increased wakefulness and inhibited slow-wave and REM sleep. CBD increased alpha brain waves, which boost alertness, and suppressed delta waves, which are needed for deep sleep.

This was only a pre-clinical study, but with methods that do not match real-life usage — no one injects cannabinoids right in their brains. Human patients have in fact reported that sleep can be improved by use of CBD-rich hemp extracts. Despite this,15mg of CBD appeared to raise alertness in a study that was with humans, as it improved “active and awake activity in the mind’.

On the other hand, a few other elements of hemp may aid sleep, like the terpene beta-myrcene. Linalool is another terpene that can have properties that affect sleep. Because of variations in each consumer, it’s important to find out when it comes to insomnia, what is ideal for you. CBD-rich hemp oil may help alone, in combination with other natural remedies and lifestyle changes, or not at all; everyone is different.

For now, someone saying definitively that it should always help may not be an accurate statement.   It’s been argued that much like marijuana use, the effect of CBD will vary depending on the person greatly.  Some folks report less motivation and energy when consuming such things, whereas others experience the opposite effect.

You may want to try CBD for yourself as a way to test this out – if it helps you-you may also be surprised about the other benefits CBD can offer. Check out testimonials from other’s who are getting sleep now they are using HempWorx here

BRANDY,
MY ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND INSOMNIA ARE A THING OF THE PAST SINCE STARTING CBD OIL! I STARTED AT THE BEGINNING OF JUNE


GAYLA

RECEIVED MY 750MG BOTTLE OF HEMPWORX CBD OIL LAST SATURDAY….5 DROPS UNDER MY TONGUE AM AND PM….ANXIETY GONE, HEADACHES GONE, INSOMNIA GONE!

THIS MORNING, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 6 YEARS, I WAS ABLE TO WORK IN MY GARDEN WITHOUT USING MY LITTLE “GARDEN ROLLING-SEAT” THINGY!! WOW!


JUDY

UPDATE ON MY CBD 500. BEEN ON IT FOR A FEW DAYS AND IT WORKS GREAT FOR SORE TIGHT MUSCLES ALMOST INSTANTLY WHEN APPLIED TO THE SPOT. I HAVE INSOMNIA SO PUT UNDER MY TONGUE A FEW DROPS AND TOOK MY REGULAR PILL AND WENT TO SLEEP FASTER AND DEEPER.


SUSAN

IT HELPED WITH MY INSOMNIA FROM THE FIRST DAY! I NORMALLY GOT ABOUT 3-4 HOURS A NIGHT, AND THE FIRST NIGHT I GOT 7! NOW I GET ABOUT 7-9 A NIGHT.


SO I STARTED TAKING CBD OILS ABOUT A MONTH AGO. I DIDN’T REALIZE WHAT A DIFFERENCE THEY WERE MAKING IN MY PAIN LEVELS UNTIL I RAN OUT. I HAD CANCER 10 YEARS AGO AND HAVE REALLY STRUGGLED WITH BACK PAIN, AND JOINT PAIN, AND NEUROPATHY IN MY FEET AND HANDS. JUST A OVER ALL ACHEY-NESS. ALSO INSOMNIA BECAUSE OF BACK PAIN. WELL NOW I’M A BELIEVER BECAUSE I’M OUT AND WAITING FOR MY REFILL TO COME. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I’M KINDA GLAD I DID RUN OUT. BECAUSE I WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL ABOUT THE WHOLE THING. SO ALL THAT TO SAY I WON’T LET MYSELF RUN OUT AGAIN. AND CBD OILS REALLY DO WORK


SO I HAVE PRETTY BAD ANXIETY. BUT WHAT’S WORSE IS MY SOCIAL ANXIETY. AND ON TOP OF THAT I HAVE DEPRESSION. AND WHAT MADE ALL OF THAT SO MUCH WORSE THAN WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IS THAT FACT THAT I HAVE INSOMNIA AND I CAN GO DAYS WITHOUT SLEEPING. BUT WHAT MADE IT HARD TO DO DAY TO DAY THINGS WAS MY ANXIETY. I CONSTANTLY HAD A VOICE TELLING ME THAT THINGS WERE WORSE THAN WHAT THEY WERE OR TELLING ME I WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH OR THAT PEOPLE ABSOLUTELY HATED ME. WHICH IS A BIG PART OF WHY I DON’T HAVE FRIENDS OR WHY IT’S HARD FOR ME TO MAKE/KEEP FRIENDS. ACCORDING TO THAT VOICE EVERYONE WAS OUT TO GET ME AND DO ME WRONG. SO I WOULD PUSH EVERYONE AWAY. MY ANXIETY ALSO MADE IT HARD FOR ME TO KEEP CALM. I COULDN’T TALK TO SOMEONE WITHOUT GETTING SO MAD THAT I WOULD FLASH OUT.

ANYWAYS, ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS I FELT THE ANXIETY PHYSICALLY. MY CHEST WOULD GET HEAVY, MY LEGS WOULD GO NUMB, MY HANDS WOULD SHAKE. AND WHENEVER I WOULD HAVE AN ATTACK, MY ENTIRE BODY WOULD GO COLD AND NUMB, MY HEART THUDS IN MY CHEST WHILE GOING 9272 MPH, I’D GET DIZZY. IT WAS BAD. ESPECIALLY AROUND PEOPLE. EVEN IF IT WAS JUST A FEW PEOPLE I WOULD GET LIKE THIS.

WELL, THEN MY FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT THE CBD OIL AND HOW IT HELPED ANOTHER ONE OF HER FRIENDS. WELL I HAD SEEN IT ON FACEBOOK AND STUFF BUT THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT REALLY. BUT I DECIDED TO TRY IT ANYWAY. THE FIRST DAY I USED IT I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY WORKING BECAUSE I WANTED IT TO WORK. BUT THEN ON THE SECOND DAY I USED IT, IT WAS LIKE I WAS A WHOLE NEW PERSON. I COULD TALK TO PEOPLE AND NOT AVOID THEM. MY CHEST WASN’T HEAVY, I NEVER ONCE HEARD THAT VOICE. MY ANXIETY DIDN’T RANDOMLY SPIKE WHILE I’M JUST SITTING AT MY DESK AT WORK. (WHICH I SHOULD LET YOU KNOW THAT I WORK IN AN OFFICE BY MYSELF.) AND IVE BEEN SLEEPING!! IT FEELS AMAZING TO ACTUALLY SLEEP AND SLEEP WELL! I WAS FEELING AMAZING. FOR AS LONG AS I COULD REMEMBER I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT ANXIETY.

WELL NOW IT’S BEEN 6 DAYS AND I’M SLEEPING, MY ANXIETY IS NEARLY GONE AND MY DEPRESSION HAS TAKEN A FEW STEPS BACK. I FEEL LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON AND I LOVE THIS FEELING. PEOPLE TALK TO ME AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO TALK BACK. IT’S JUST A GREAT FEELING TO KNOW THAT I CAN NOW DO THINGS AND NOT HAVING THAT DREADED FEELING OR A HEAVY CHEST WITH ME.


Depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, myoclonic dystonia and chronic insomnia. These are things I’ve been dealing with for years. In 2012 I was in an accident where I almost lost my life. That compounded the anxiety/depression/anger that I’ve been dealing with for 21 years. When I was young I wrote stories about the “monster” that lived inside me. I’ve been in road rage incidents that resulted in physical violence. I’ve said hurtful things to people I love the most, in times of rage. I’ve self harmed, attempted suicide and have had a general poor outlook on life. Not sleeping doesn’t help either , even on 100mg of Trazodone I would go days without sleeping more than 4 hours. Myoclonus causes my muscles to stiffen and eventually leads to tremors, my neck muscles stiffen and I have migraines and ringing in my ears. I’ve been on several different anti depressants over the years, every OTC and Rx sleep aid out there. NOTHING has worked for me as well as Hempworx CBD. I sleep solidly for 8 hours a night, my muscle pain and stiffness has significantly decreased and most importantly I can now say I look forward to every day. I LOVE life now. I can’t describe how great it is to feel like this after 20 years. I no longer get angry, I feel completely calm no matter the situation. I’m not anxious when there’s loud noises and a lot of movement. This amazing product has changed my life! I take 10 drops twice daily of 750.I’ve been using the oil for roughly 3 weeks now. I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety, and insomnia. I had no drive to do anything accept TRY to sleep. I have ZERO motivation and energy. Since Hempworx was brought to my attention everything has changed for the better! I take it twice a day/ morning and night. I have an amazing sleep now and wake up feeling great with tons of energy! I’ve been making it to the gym regularly and I finally feel like I can get my life in order. I also started noticing my skin is actually getting better also! I’m going to see my doctor next week to see if I can stop oral medications 🙂 100% Recommend !!


♥️ Received my 750mg bottle of HempWorx CBD oil last Saturday….5 drops under my tongue AM and PM….anxiety gone, headaches gone, insomnia gone!

This morning, for the first time in 6 years, I was able to work in my garden WITHOUT using my little “garden rolling-seat” thingy!! WOW!♥️


I ordered the 750 and started with 2 drops twice a day for my insomnia! It was working so the next week went up 3 drops twice a day! It wasn’t working and my anxiety came back! So down I go to two drops twice a day! Stay with what works best at first!

PTSD and Parkinson’s another amazing HempWorx testimony

Man, these testimonies just touch my heart so deeply. From a customer

“No exaggeration our life journey is enjoyable again because of HEMPWORX. My husband has PTSD and Parkinson’s disease

. He has been on CBD oil for 9 months. The first stint on the oil was for approximately three months, his tremors reduced dramatically and anxiety all but disappeared. Then he ran out.
.
OMG never again, the tremors came back and the PTSD kicked straight back in. That was six weeks of absolute hell. Sleep deprivation, back to living like a hermit not wanting to go out, definitely no social life. Life is hard with Parkinson’s, the tremors stop him from wanting to be in public.
.
Roll on to the next shipment and a change to Hempworx. The change is dramatic, we are back to being able to go out for dinner again, Doug will now choose to socialize instead of always saying ‘no’. Being able to hold a cup of coffee without wearing it, being able to cut up his food without help, being told by the neurologist he does not need to see him for twelve months.
.
I have and never will have a problem caring for my husband, the love between us is strong and he is worth every second of my time but in the harder times, the joy of living can be lost for both of us. BTW he takes 10 drops morning and night.

Because of Hempworx, our life journey is enjoyable again.”
