CBD Improves Sleep Quality
“Getting your beauty rest,” is more than just a common saying.
While looking in the mirror after a restless night reveals the impact sleep deprivation has on our physical appearance, a Harvard study shows that poor sleep quality can actually lead to serious health conditions.
Sleep is the function our body uses to regenerate itself and when we don’t sleep enough, our body can’t fully revive.
As far as our physical appearance goes―poor sleep quality can cause dark circles under the eyes, declined skin health and appearance, and decreased metabolism. But these should be the least of your concerns…
According to the NHS, a lack of sleep can lead to a wide variety of serious health issues, such as severe stress, declined immunity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, decreased fertility, brain damage, and a variety of mental and psychological conditions. In other words, poor sleep quality is extremely harmful to not only your physical appearance but for your overall health.
So how can CBD help solve this problem?
By taking the problem head on.
Researchers have found that the relationship between CBD and the endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating homeostasis in the body.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term, homeostasis is the state of balance in the body. When the body’s levels are balanced, or as they should be, the body is healthy. When there’s too much or too little of something, the body is in a state of unbalance, which disrupts the body’s homeostasis and naturally leads to problems.
Stress is the result of overactive, erratic stress signals and abnormally high levels of cortisol. The key to alleviating stress is to calm these stress signals and reduce the high levels of cortisol, which brings the body back to a state of balance.
By regulating homeostasis, CBD takes on sleeping disorders by alleviating the root causes of sleeping disorders, such as stress, anxiety, pain, and restlessness.
This approach is what allows CBD to naturally alleviate sleeping disorders and improve quality of sleep.
