The keys to healthy living lies with consistent exercise, steady dieting, regular dosing of CBD, and a good night's sleep. Without a regular sleep cycle, it is incredibly hard to maintain a good mood, your mental activity, and physical fitness. The National Sleep Foundation suggests the average adult should get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep nightly, but we know many people do not.
Over 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders that prevent them from getting a full, restful night of sleep. Even those without sleep disorders will have bad nights where tossing and turning is the name of the game instead of happy, and healthy dreams. So where does CBD fit in with sleep-health?
CBD works with the Endocannabinoid System in your body which affects appetite, pain-sensation, memory and mood. By using this to your advantage, you can regulate your circadian rhythm and form new, healthy sleep habits that can improve your overall quality of life.
Sleep deprivation is defined as the situation or condition of suffering from a lack of sleep. This particular condition isn't only brought on by sleep disorders, extreme schedule changes, or new babies entering the family. Sleep deprivation can be brought on under normal circumstances, such as staying late in the office, a fun night out (check out our hangover remedy on this), engaging in another binge of the 8th season of Game of Thrones, or even trauma that involves an injury to the body and/or mind.
Even after just one night of deprivation, you'll start noticing your body is operating at dangerous levels. You'll start noticing that your immune system isn't at tip-top shape as you're now more susceptible to illness. You'll notice that you're fatigued, irritable, and have a hard time concentrating on even the most basic tasks.
Once chronic levels are reached, your risk of imminent death increases significantly, as massive organ systems such as the cardiovascular system work harder than normal to maintain basic function. After years of chronic sleep deprivation, your chances of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes increases dramatically.
Most experts agree that great sleep requires good sleep habits paired with a regular routine. Something simple such as regulating your sleep patterns can make or break your situation. For starters, going to sleep at a reasonable time to reach a minimum of 5 to 6 hours can mean the world for your body and mind. Changing when you go to bed to often however, and you'll end up exacerbating the issue instead of helping it. Remember, the goal here is to reset or at the very least, manage your circadian rhythm back to a healthy level.
In addition to regular sleep and wake times, experts are in agreement that a healthy dose of exercise and diet play a huge part in regulation. Sedentary life has its negative effects as muscle mass and bone density further erode one's ability to maintain wellness. As for diet, simply eating whatever you want just doesn't cut it anymore. Dietitians recommend a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats, all consumed at consistent times to increase wellness and to deliver a much-needed chemical, melatonin into the blood stream. Melatonin is often called the sleep drug, as it is the chemical that induces and maintains sleep.
Incorporating CBD into this mix only compounds the effects of regular dosing on melatonin. The chemical properties behind CBD include an anti-anxiety element, which further promotes your body and mind to relax, giving way to the melatonin to work its magic not only to induce sleep, but keep you asleep for a healthy amount of time. When it comes to dosing CBD and having its countless effects further improve your sleeping problem, our Soft Chews prove to be invaluable. These Soft Chews feature 10MG of CBD per piece, giving you a controlled dose each time you consume it. The Soft Chews are slow-release, meaning in order for the CBD to fully be distributed throughout your body, it must first pass through the stomach and intestines, allowing for maximum absorption and therefore a longer effect time.
Bad sleep leads to bad mornings, and bad mornings lead to bad days. Nothing gives you a bigger energy boost than a good night of naturally-induced sleep. If sleep deprivation has been compromising the quality of life, it's time to figure out a new system - a new way of regulating your schedule, so that you can get your best night's sleep - every single night.
Our premium, Full Spectrum CBD products, can help you capitalize on your Endocannabinoid System to regulate your natural circadian rhythm. With the introduction of CBD as your boost in promoting healthy sleep patterns, enjoy peace of mind knowing that it can relieve you on your stresses and pains, allowing you to get those necessary 8 hours of restful sleep in.
