Some believe that our soul wanders between the hours of midnight and 3:00 a.m. Science believes REM sleep is the most important state we can reach for immune strength, working memory, attention, decision-making, and visual-motor performance. Dreaming—a distinct form of consciousness—is said to consolidate our experiences and conversations into long-term memories.
Still, while we all must do it, sleep remains a mysterious state vital for human life (after only three or four nights without sleep, you can start to hallucinate). Life has a veneer of lousiness if you haven’t gotten enough sleep the night before, and no amount of caffeine can seem to cure sleep-induced lethargy.
For many people, trouble falling asleep or restlessness throughout the night is caused by stress (you know, those racing thoughts that have you staring at the ceiling thinking about anything from laundry to unanswered emails, all with a tinge of doom), pain, and PTSD.
CBD for sleep is becoming tremendously popular because it offers an all-natural, non-intoxicating, and non-addictive way to relax and fall asleep, without the groggy day-after feeling problematic with some sleep sedatives.
CBD can help with sleep, but how does it work?
Stress is largely predicated on how a person responds to a situation.
For example, someone cuts you off in line. You could respond to the situation by simply brushing it off and not letting it get to you. Or—OR—you could get upset, harbour some deep rage within you like a fire-breathing dragon, plot cold revenge during the remaining daylight hours, picture some murderous doomsday scenarios, and feel tempted to dig your voodoo doll out from the closet once nightfalls and cast some black magic upon the poor, unsuspecting soul who was so preoccupied by their own life that–how dare they–did not notice that you were standing there the entire time.
The second scenario would undoubtedly increase your stress levels. Now, imagine if your brain had been firing off stress signals for hours, and suddenly, you’re telling it to dismantle all walls of defense and fall asleep. Are you crazy? What about that person who cut us off in line, what if they come back to cut us off again, forever?!
That is where CBD comes in like a lullaby for your rather active, if not overly imaginative, stress response system. Studies show that CBD can help the brain’s capacity to respond to stressful situations.
CBD tea is a fantastic and effective way to boost your mood and relieve stress. Plus, incorporating CBD into tea gives you the added bonus of drinking a relaxing mug of herbal tea right before bed to help you drift into a peaceful sleep where all the worries of the day float away too. By the time you wake up, you’ll be ready for whatever waits.
