Insomnia is a common problem. Approximately 7% to 8% of the people in Europe is affected. The effects are obvious; you are not fit, poorly equipped and not sharp. People who suffer from insomnia often have concentration problems and the emotional volatility can dramatically increase.
The cause of the insomnia can be a lot of things. It may be your state of mind, wrong breathing techniques or a very irregular work schedule like working night shifts. All these causes have an negative impact on the bodies own production of endocannabinoids. Therefore the positive effect that CBD supplements have on your sleep cycle does not come as a surprise.[Ux_FEATURED_PRODUCTS products=”” columns=”4″ title=””]
CBD oil and sleep
The effect of CBD on sleep has already been examined, a study showed  that CBD extended the duration of sleep, expecially the periods of deep sleep.
It was discovered that CBD oil not only affects how easy we fall asleep and how long we continue to sleep, but also on the sleep cycle itself. CBD increases the deep third sleep phase and reduces the duration of the REM sleep. The third phase the main stage for those who suffer from a sleep disorder. REM stage is the stage in which we dream. A shorter period of REM sleep is associated with reduction of depressions.
Blood research during sleep showed that CBD oil affected the dopamine levels in the blood. This results in a more relaxed and better sleep.
There are also studies showing that CBD promotes alertness . This sounds contradictory with what we previously said and this doesn’t sound like a good thing if you are looking for a better nights rest, however, this difference in effect may be explained by the differences in the administered concentrations of CBD. In one study a lower concentration of CBD was used and in the other study we worked with a higher concentration.
Opinion on use of CBD oil and sleep
According to research, our own experience and the positive experiences of our we know that CBD can definitly help with sleep. The most selected oil is the Azoth 5% pure CBD . This is due to the fact that the oil is purely concentrated CBD. We advise to use it twice or three times a day, several drops under the tongue (depending on your bodies needs). Keep it under the tongue for at least a minute. This should always be done purely because the CBD will be taken in by the mucous membranes in the mouth. If you mix with water or food the process will take longer as a part will get lost in the stomach and intestines. Our pure CBD products are based on coconot oil, so they taste good!
Cannabis Oil and sleep
Safe use of CBD and side effects
CBD oil is a safe supplement that also in higher concentration (10% or 15%) is well tolerated by people. There are no side effects known or proved by science. Trial and error is the way of finding the perfect dosage for you body, and we recommend to always start with a low dosage. Please note that some of the CBD-containing products not only contain CBD. Our RAW CBD products also contain CBDA, CBN, CBV and CBG. This also applies for the oil of many other brands and also for the CBD capsules. The organic certified oil of Azoth however in this respect is unique and contains only pure CBD. In addition to the opinion to always start with a low dose, 2-3 drops per day is often enough to improve your sleep provided that the oil is pure and a high concentration CBD.
