Many people have trouble sleeping for various reasons. Pain, anxiety, stress, illness, menopause etc.
Cannabis has been used for many years medicinally as a sleep aid. Scientists have identified cannabinoids years ago and are still discovering more about them also finding new ones. They continue to do vital research. Each cannabinoid have distinctly different effects within the body.
They know that CBD interacts with many different receptors, proteins, and other chemicals in the brain. These interactions create changes in the activity of neurotransmitters, hormones, and other cells throughout the brain and body. Through these interactions, CBD appears to be able to affect many of the body’s functions, from sleep-wake cycles and emotional regulation to inflammation, pain perception and seizures.
Our bodies actually produce their own cannabinoids, as part of what’s known as the Endocannabinoid system. This system is involved in regulating many physiological processes, including mood, pain perception, appetite, and cognitive functions.
CBD interacts in part with the body’s Endocannabinoid system and it’s receptors. It may play a role in the growth of new brain cells. It is widely recognised that CBD has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities, making it a promising therapy for a wide range of conditions. Including neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases and chronic pain, depression and anxiety, sleep and more.
Scientists are devoting a great deal of attention to CBD and we are continually learning more.
