More and more people have trouble sleeping. Many working people still push overtime in the evening or can not really switch off. They suffer from severe sleep disorders (insomnia) with difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, poor sleep quality, daytime fatigue and exhaustion. One of two people buys an over-the-counter drug from a pharmacy or drugstore. Almost every fourth person consumes such sleeping pills for more than three years without really knowing what ingredients are in these drugs. In addition, it is also known that some chemical drugs can cause a possible risk of addiction. Depending on the sleeping pill, the body becomes accustomed to the respective drug after a period of use of 2 weeks. What is problematic about this is that the body’s own formation of depressant neurotransmitters shuts down to zero because the entire neurotransmitter metabolism in the brain is thrown out of balance by the drug. The body gets used to the drug and is no longer able to fall asleep without it. Agents that are chemically based can also usually have a variety of side effects. Since CBD has no intoxicating effect, no dependence is to be expected here. The positive benefits from the medicinal plant can be invaluable for a healthy and restful sleep.
Causes and effects of poor sleep
Don’t worry – everyone has nights when they can’t fall asleep properly or sleep through the night. This is quite normal. However, there are some people who suffer from sleep problems for several weeks and months. The cause can be different factors, it can be due to external influences such as loud noises, physical and acute pain or depressive moods. However, sleep disorders triggered by psychosocial problems are the most common cause. Excessive stress, worries, fears and problems at work and in private life trigger inner restlessness in many people. The extreme social demands and especially the high demands on ourselves are additional amplifiers. Not allowing ourselves any mistakes, doing everything perfectly and always delivering top performance is a state that many people emulate. In the process, we often forget to pay attention to our health and well-being and fail to notice physical and psychological warning signals, or notice them too late.
If the body never gets any rest in the evening, sleep disorders occur in the long term, which in turn can lead to further problems. Poor sleep results in daytime fatigue and poor concentration. In the long term, it can lead to depression, tension, impaired vision and cardiovascular disease. Medicalclarification should always be sought if the complaints are permanent or persist after the stressors have subsided.
CBD is considered the optimal sleep aid and that thanks to natural ingredients. According to studies from the U.S., it is believed that receptors to which CBD can dock are located throughout the body’s nervous and immune systems. Particularly impressive in the context of sleep disorders is the interaction of cannabidiol (CBD) and the gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) receptors in the brain. GABA is the neurotransmitter responsible for a good night’s sleep. CBD is thus able to exert a direct influence on the central nervous system. It has a calming effect, relaxes the body and increases the general well-being.
