I am too anxious to sleep can CBD help?
CBD (cannabidiol) is now one of the most popular supplements for reducing anxiety. It interacts with your body’s own endocannabinoid system to damp down over-active thoughts, promote relaxation and reduce stress, anxiety and restlessness. It is particularly helpful when anxious thoughts affect your ability to drop off to sleep. The reason I take CBD is to aid sleep. I’ve always found it easy to drop off to sleep but didn’t always wake feeling refreshed.
Since I started taking cannabidiol I sleep more deeply, and as it enhances REM (rapid eye movement) sleep I wake feeling like I’ve had a good 8 hours and feel more chilled during the day. Cannabidiol is also being investigated as a promising treatment for panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. CBD is also good for lifting mood and generating feelings of well-being.
