    The Importance of Sleep:  For your mental & physical health 

    Not getting enough sleep drains your mental abilities and puts your physical health at risk. Science has linked poor slumber with a number of health problems, from weight gain to a weakened immune system. (Healthline: The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Your Body)

    Do you struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep once your head hits the pillow?  Maybe you've tried everything from counting sheep to drinking warm milk, but nothing seems to work and you end up watching TV or scrolling social media. That's where Cannabidiol, or CBD, can come to the rescue!  This natural compound, sourced from the hemp plant, has been shown to have numerous health benefits without the head-high that comes from traditional cannabis products. It can be beneficial to add CBD into your sleep routine as it can help to slow a racing mind and promote deep relaxation. Did you know that Mother Earth Natural Health specializes in the specific dosing focused around the relief you need? Let's dive into how to incorporate the best type of CBD product into your bedtime routine. 

    Six in 10 Americans say their sleep routines feel different during the winter than in other seasons. Let's get started on how you can get back to the sleep you used to have when you were a teenager.

    First things first, how does CBD work for sleep?

    CBD works by interacting with our body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for regulating various many bodily functions, including sleep.  The ECS regulates and controls many of our most critical bodily functions such as learning and memory, emotional processing, sleep, temperature control, pain control, inflammatory and immune responses, and eating. It binds with these receptors to promote relaxation and increase sleep duration.  

    CBD may also help reduce anxiety, stress, inflammation, and pain which are common causes of sleep disturbances.  Additionally, CBD may help regulate the sleep-wake cycle by promoting wakefullness during the day and inducing sleepiness at night.

    When it comes to the sleep cycle, CBD may help increase the time spent in REM, the state of sleep during which we dream. It is an important stage of sleep for overall well-being and for the process of learning and memory consolidation. CBD has the potential to help the body to relax from the days activities so you can get the sleep you are looking for.

    Different Forms of CBD

    CBD is available in various forms, including, oils, capsules, edibles, bath products, smokeable flower, vapes, and topical creams. Below we will take you through the different delivery methods that are available for a better nights' rest.

    CBD Oil

    CBD oil is one of the original types of delivery methods and is the kind of product that you would place a measured amount of oil under your tongue. This method tends to be the most cost effective option and, within the products offered at Mother Earth Natural Health, will have the andleast amount of ingredients. We carry options that have absolutely zero THC (if you have work-related or pain clinic drug testing concerns), as well as broad spectrum and full spectrum options. The CBD oil from Huron Hemp, Charlotte's Web, and Medterra CBD, include a graduated dropper (with easy to see measure lines) that allows for exact individual measuring. Another benefit to CBD oil is that it is also highly concentrated, meaning you can get a high dose in a small amount of oil.

    CBD Capsules

    CBD capsules are a convenient way to provide a consistent dose of CBD once you know what your optimal dose strength is.  They can be a little challenging if you are new to CBD because one capsule may not be strong enough, while two capsules may be too strong. This method may also be a good option for people who do not like the taste of the oils but know the exact dose they need. These are also perfect for people who are on the go and need a quick sense of relief. Let The CBD Experts™ here at Mother Earth Natural Health help you to find the perfect dose for you before starting on a capsule. 

    CBD Edibles

    CBD Edibles, most commonly CBD gummies, are a fun and tasty way to wind down after a long day. They come in a variety of flavors and doses; including some with other minor cannabinoids like Cannabinol (CBN). CBD Edibles can be a good option for people who want a discreet, yet convenient, dose. However, they are the delivery method that can take the longest amount of time to fully work. Most delivery methods have you feeling relief within 20-30 minutes, while CBD edibles can take up to 2 hours for full effects.  Check out the Huron Hemp Nighttime gummies!  They quickly became our top selling sleep gummies.

    Tips for Incorporating CBD into Your Sleep Routine

    If you are new to using CBD, it can be helpful to start with the proper spectrum, a lower strength dose, and then gradually increase it until you find the perfect dose that works best for you. It is also very important to use your product consistently to see the best results. Working with supplements, including CBD products, is like anything else in life - you need to be consistent to see the results the product can offer.  Maintaining CBD in your system will help bring more overall balance back to your body and can over time assist in alleviating other issues you may struggle with.

As always, we recommend that you talk to your doctor before adding any type of supplement into your daily routine.
