How Does CBD Oil Help With Anxiety/ Sleep Problems?

Sleep and lack of sleep can have an intense impact on your health. Sleep is the most important part of getting healthy and staying healthy.  Many people overlook the importance of healthy sleep.  Sleep disturbances can contribute to insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, anxiety and depression. 

Unfortunately, our busy, on the go, high stress lives can have us staying up too late.  When we finally hit our pillow our minds can keep us up at night as we play through the responsibilities we have on our plate.   Stress and anxiety too often take a toll on quality sleep.   Understanding and addressing the links between anxiety/ sleep problems can be fundamental to physical and emotional wellness.  

Does CBD Actually Reduce Anxiety?

According to a survey from the Brightfield Group More than 60 percent of people who use CBD oil do so to help with their anxiety/ sleep problems.  CBD is quickly becoming a go-to natural product for stress and anxiety/ sleep problems.

CBD Anxiety Study &  Research 

Since the 1980’s researchers have been examining the effects of CBD and anxiety.  CBD has drawn increased attention for help with anxiety/ sleep problems as the majority of existing data suggest CBD is safe, well tolerated, has few adverse effects, and demonstrates no potential for abuse or dependence in humans.  

CBD is known to have interactions with several receptors in both the central and peripheral nervous systems, which are known to regulate fear and anxiety. These receptors include the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor, the CB1 and CB2 receptors, and the transient receptor potential, vanilloid type 1 receptor (TRPV1)

Results from this case study on the effects of CBD on anxiety/sleep problems showed that CBD helped to reduce the anxiety scores of nearly 80% of the adults in the study after just one month of daily treatment using 25 milligrams of CBD oil in capsule form.

A large case study on CBD’s effects on anxiety-induced insomnia showed that it was easier for the majority of the test subjects to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Pros and Cons of CBD Oil For Anxiety 

The typical medical route for treating stress and anxiety is through benzodiazepines, which include Xanax and Klonopin.  These prescription drugs can be habit forming and may also come with side effects.   CBD is quickly becoming a go-to natural product for stress and anxiety/ sleep problems as many people look for alternate natural remedies.

Can I Use CBD Oil To Help With Anxiety/ Sleep Problems?

Many people find that including CBD once or twice daily into their routine is best. CBD is often used in the morning for all day relief and an hour or two before bed to increase relaxation for better sleep.

CBD comes in many forms.  It can be ingested as an oil, tincture, gummy or soft gel, it can also be applied topically as a lotion. CBD flower can be smoked or vaporized. 

One of the quickest ways to experience CBD is by vaporization of our Organic CBD flower: Between 15 seconds to two minutes. This method should last 1 to 3 hours, depending on dose.

Our Organic CBD tinctures or oils are quickly absorbed between 15-30 minutes. Effects generally last 3-4 hours. 

CBD gummies, soft gels or capsules take the longest time for effects to be felt – between 1 and 2 hours. This method of ingestion offers the longest duration, 6-8 hours

Topical Organic CBD lotions are fast acting with effects lasting several hours, but may not be as effective for anxiety/ sleep problems as our other options.

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil For Anxiety

CBD oil and hemp seed oil are not the same things. Hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp seeds are even sold in grocery stores! Hemp seed oil is commonly found in cooking oils because it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids. There is no CBD in hemp seeds or hemp.

Full Spectrum CBD oil or Full Spectrum Hemp Oil are made from the flower of the hemp plant. Full Spectrum is an extract that contains everything that occurs naturally in the plant. The full spectrum of compounds found in the plant creates the “entourage effect.” All of the elements work together to increase the therapeutic benefits of each cannabinoid. If you’re looking for the full benefits of the hemp plant the way nature intended, Full Spectrum CBD is the right choice for you. The versatility and positive effects of Full Spectrum CBD are well suited to the widest range of people, which is why we carry Full Spectrum CBD here at Aunt Bonnie’s.
