CBD and Sleep

To understand how CBD and other cannabinoids help with sleep, we have to understand the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) 💭

The ECS is a complex neurochemical network in the body that regulates various bodily functions, including emotions, pain and sleep. While the body naturally releases endocannabinoid molecules, external sources of cannabinoids, such as CBD, can affect the body via the ECS.

The hypothalamus—which plays a significant role in the ECS—impacts sleep regulation. It plays a role in several sleep-related functions, including regulating body temperature and synchronizing sleep patterns. 😴

CBD can help people with insomnia because it works with the hypothalamus to regulate stress as insomnia results from an overactive stress reaction that’s spilling into a rest time when we’re not trying to process conscious trauma.

Circadian rhythm disorders, also known as sleep-wake cycle disorders, occur when the body’s internal clock, is misaligned with your environment. They can develop when there are changes in sleep habits, often due to travel or work, or as a byproduct of a medical condition, aging or genetics. 🕰

CBD may improve both the quality and quantity of sleep by ensuring the body progresses through the normal stages of sleep and REM sleep without undue interruption, which would help people with circadian rhythm disorders 🛏

CBD’s action on cannabinoid receptors initiates a cascade of events that culminates in a more natural timing of sleep relative to the diurnal rhythm of night and day. CBD can be especially helpful for people like nurses who experience circadian rhythm disorders due to shift work, where sleep windows change depending on a person’s work schedule. 👩🏼‍⚕️👨🏽‍⚕️
