We know that staying active and eating well have a positive impact on your overall well being, but what about sleep? Today we’re exploring how CBD can be useful in helping people get more of it. The goal - to get longer, higher quality sleep without the unwanted side effects.
What happens to my mind and body when I don’t get enough sleep?
Healthline.com created the following graphic (see below) to illustrate some of the potential issues you may experience when your body doesn’t get enough. You require sleep to heal and recharge, so the effects of sleep deprivation permeate your mind and body. CBD has been shown to interact with receptors in the body to bring balance, calming anxiety and allowing for a more restful sleep. This, in turn, can increase your ability to perform at a more optimal level.
How much sleep do I need every night?
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), adults need at least 7 hours of sleep per 24-hour period. Do you remember the last time you got that much sleep? It may sound like a lot, but it’s as simple as going to bed by 11pm and waking up at 6am. We know, easier said than done. For many of us, it’s not just about making the time to get more, it’s struggling to doze off and sleep throughout the night.
What can I do to get more sleep?
While scheduling can be an issue, many of us are able to commit to and maintain a consistent bedtime, but when our head hits the pillow nothing happens. Then what? Advertisements are everywhere for over-the-counter and prescription medications to help, but these can come at a high cost. These methods can be effective at helping people fall asleep, but have been shown to have serious side-effects and can be habit forming.
What if there was a way to try a natural sleep aid in the form of a topical cream? We receive testimonials from satisfied customers every single day who share their satisfaction with Notion. It’s particularly exciting to learn that customers have reported improved sleep, even if they’re taking the product for another purpose. In fact, many report they achieve deeper, higher quality sleep by simply applying one pump before bed!
