Cannabidiol and Sleep
As the popularity of CBD and CBD products rises, there have been numerous claims surfacing about what it can and cannot help. While research is still very new in regards to cannabidiol, there have been promising studies that are shining light on potential benefits of the hemp plant. Science and research are often limited to studies and experiments that you can fully control, test, and replicate results. The industry is well on its way to exploring hemp’s cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, CBG, etc and there is still so much we don’t know!
This January, a sleep survey was done around CBD and sleep patterns. A group of 4 doctors examined 72 consenting adults who suffered from either anxiety or insomnia every day for a minimum of a month. 47 of the participants noted anxiety, and 25 reported insomnia. All participating patients remained under doctor care and on their regular medications. If a patient had anxiety, they were given their CBD after breakfast. If a patient complained about insomnia, they received their CBD after dinner.
After the first month of treatment, approximately 70% of all 72 patients experienced improvement in their symptoms of anxiety and insomnia. After two months, 41 patients continued and around 65% saw improvements. These changes were shown to be sustained responses over time, as well.
These doctors found that hemp-derived CBD was well tolerated and had few side effects. Some experienced side effects like mild fatigue, which tapered out for most of them after the first two weeks. While this is only one small study, it begins to open up more questions and potential answers for how we further use and integrate hemp and CBD into our routines.
