CDB and THC Series: Natural Sleep Aids to Help With Insomnia

Having trouble falling asleep? Do you battle with insomnia? Sleeping pills can make you tired in the morning or leave you with brain fog all day. There are natural bedtime aids you can look at, and one of them is CBD!

Melatonin – The brain produces a neurotransmitter called melatonin when you’re ready to snooze. Stress, caffeine, or even things like jet lag, can throw off normal melatonin production. Since your brain makes this neurotransmitter naturally, you won’t wake up still feeling lethargic.

Valerian Root – Valerian root is a traditional remedy for light sleepers or those with trouble falling asleep. The plant has several chemicals that promote sleeping by increasing the amount of GABA neurotransmitter in your brain. Stress can induce a GABA deficiency in the body, resulting in trouble falling asleep. The compounds in Valerian root help your brain produce more GABA, to help get a good night’s sleep.

Magnesium – Magnesium is a vital mineral for good brain function. A shortage of magnesium in the diet can lead to the brain having trouble producing the chemicals for good sleep.

Tryptophan – Tryptophan is an amino acid that ultimately turns into serotonin and melatonin. It’s found in high-protein foods. It can help with sleep aid because it gives the brain cells the building blocks that make the neurotransmitters that calm you down. Since we naturally find amino acids in food, tryptophan supplements are safe unless you’re taking medications that adjust your serotonin levels.

and… then there is CBD!

Cannabidiol or CBD is the non-psychotropic chemical purified from the cannabis plant. It doesn’t get you high like THC, but it has an anti-anxiety and sedative effect. Producers can now grow hemp with less than 0.3% THC. Cannabidiol is legal across Canada. CBD is now mainstream and very popular among adults. We can find it in tinctures, edibles, vapes, and oils.

If getting shut-eye is coming heavier, you’re not alone.

With so many individuals experiencing sleeping disorders, there’s been a rise of interest in cannabis as a sleep aid. Many in the medical marijuana community refer to cannabis as an efficient treatment, with little to no side effects, for a variety of sleeping disorders.

“Marijuana is an effective sleep aid because it restores a person’s natural sleep cycle, which so often falls out of sync with our schedules in today’s modern lifestyle,” says Dr. Matt Roman, a medical marijuana physician.

Whether you have a sleep disorder or you’re having difficulty sleeping after a stressful day, cannabis might be a choice for you. Marijuana’s analgesic properties might provide some relief for those with chronic pain, while the anti-anxiety properties can soothe a stressed-out mind and body.
