With the holidays approaching, most of us are trying to find a way to add even more to our already full plates. In addition to dealing with current world events, trying to stay healthy, maintaining our jobs and families, and everyday responsibilities, we are also eager to savor all the joy and celebrations ahead.

If you’re like much of the population, the holidays are mostly sweet but a little bit stressful. If you are a loving parent, spouse, or friend, you probably want to do everything in your power to make the holidays special for yourself and those you care about, and that sometimes means working overtime to accomplish that. Long days and sleepless nights can catch up to you, leaving you feeling physically and emotionally exhausted.

Before draining yourself of every last bit of energy you have, you may want to give the amazing compounds in cannabis a try. No – not marijuana! Cannabis is a plant family, not one single plant that gets you high! Marijuana’s sibling plant, hemp, features dozens of compounds that deliver a wide array of wellness benefits including sleep support, but without euphoric side effects.

CBD for Sleep Support – The Natural Way to Rest Well

3 02 cbdFor years, consumers have been looking for a healthy, natural alternative to the chemical-infused sleep products on the market today. Products that cause you to feel drowsy when you wake up or result in dependency are ultimately ineffective because they make you sacrifice being who you are in order to get some decent shut-eye. Thankfully, this dilemma is a thing of the past since CBD and other derivatives of hemp became legal in the United States!

In 2018, the president signed the Farm Bill into law, legalizing all hemp-derived compounds as long as they contain no more than .3% THC. The very minuscule amount of THC helps ensure that your wellness products will not provoke any mind-altering side effects, resulting in all the benefits you are looking for without the discomfort!

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a compound called a cannabinoid, and hemp features dozens of them! These similarly-structured molecules are expertly extracted from a healthy full-grown hemp plant, then they are used in wellness products designed to improve how you feel each day – head to toe, inside and out.

Most recently, CBD has become a go-to product for individuals seeking a natural way to achieve a good night’s sleep. In order to understand how all-natural CBD can accomplish this without the use of chemicals or unnatural fillers, you have to look closely at the way the human body functions in general and how CBD interacts with it.

Optimizing the Endocannabinoid System: The Key to Better Sleep

3 03 optimizing bettersleepSleep is much more complex than closing your eyes and drifting off. Many people struggle to fall asleep on a regular basis because they feel physically or emotionally fatigued, and these feelings are often the result of an imbalance of some kind within the body. In order to function at its peak, the body has numerous systems constantly at work to regulate stress, emotions, and all of the signals communicated to the brain that lead to your overall health. One of those systems is called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS is a highly active internal system that keeps your mind and body balanced. From how you process emotional fatigue to how your brain processes signals that it is time to wake up, fall asleep, and more, the ECS plays a major role in your life without you even realizing it. When there is any type of deficit, even a small one, your body’s overall balance can be thrown off, resulting in increased fatigue and, of course, inconsistent sleep.

Before draining yourself of every last bit of energy you have, you may want to give the amazing compounds in cannabis a try.

CBD and other hemp-derived cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system in an organic harmony, naturally promoting the restoration of physical and emotional balance. CBD works to promote homeostasis from within – that is, when your body’s functions work at their very best. CBD is a revolutionary ingredient because, until recently, no other entirely holistic product could interact with the body so favorably without causing uncomfortable, mind-altering side effects. Because CBD is so different, and the trace amounts (.3% at most) of THC make it non-psychoactive, consumers simply cannot get enough of this so-called “wonder supplement.”
