CBD Sleep Aids and Pills

A good alternative to traditional sleep aids are CBD sleep aids and pills. Many people will use cold, flu and antihistamines medicines such as Nyquil or Benadryl for sleep. The issue with using these medications for sleep is that they can often be in your body for 10 to 12 hours which is often well beyond the time frame that many people sleep. This means they can still be causing drowsiness for you even after you wake up. In addition, there are other issues that can occur from using these types of medicines for sleep such as issues with forming a habit.

This is why CBD sleep aids and pills can be a good alternative to traditional sleep remedies. If taken a half-hour before bed, CBD can be very effective in helping you sleep.

“CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep,” Peter Grinspoon, M.D., professor at Harvard Medical School, wrote in a blog post.

CBD has a calming effect on the central nervous system, reducing anxiety by regulating the production of the stress hormone cortisol. It also serves as a pain reliever and muscle relaxant, helping patients with movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease to find better sleep. There is even some evidence that CBD helps to eliminate nightmares in those suffering from REM sleep behavior disorder.

The use of CBD can potentially decrease your symptoms of insomnia and help you get more quality sleep.
