Everyone we know craves sleep. They talk about it fantasise about it and never get enough of it. Whether it’s not being able to fall asleep or not being able to stay there no one appears immune to the cruel mistress of insomnia.

According to the Sleep Health Foundation, Around one in three people in the UK have at least mild insomnia, insufficient sleep or another sleep disorder.’ That’s a lot of sleep-deprived people.

Stress and anxiety over money, work and relationships are among the biggest reasons why we struggle to get enough shut-eye. In addition, for many of us it’s uncomfortable chronic pains, aches or restlessness and other health conditions that keep us awake when we should be resting.

So why does it matter if you miss the odd hour’s sleep?

Not getting adequate sleep can increase fatigue, moodiness and even cause you to gain weight. But help is at hand. Numerous studies have shown how CBD can help with sleeplessness. A 2006 study on rats showed increased alertness with light, suggesting that CBD could potentially be used for relief of day-time drowsiness.

Another study revealed how CBD fights temporary feelings of anxiety, a common factor that keeps people awake. Additionally, several customers with sleep issues report success with taking a CBD tincture or extract a few hours before bedtime has a balancing effect that may help them get better sleep.
Because CBD hemp oil works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, it helps regulate balance and homeostasis. It does this by activating two main categories of receptors CB1 and CB2. In essence, these receptors play a role in the release of neurotransmitters, feelings of pleasure, concentration, memory and pain tolerance.
When purchasing CBD products, consider the source. At Elixinol, we extract CBD using the ‘whole plant.’ Whole plant CBD oil is extracted from organic, industrial hemp plants. This includes a variety of constituents (over 500) including terpenes, sugars, flavonoids, secondary cannabinoids, etc., that are found in all parts of hemp. We extract the CBD oil using a Super-Critical Fluid Extraction technology. This extraction method is more expensive, non-toxic, and produces a highly potent and pure extract.

How to take it?

We have a variety of products that all would make excellent additions to your nighttime routine. Our Hemp Oil Liposomes come in an award-winning citrus flavour, are administered under the tongue (for more immediate access to the bloodstream) and make it easy to take the right amount.
The capsules take that ease one step further by being tasteless, easy to take with water and more conveniently transportable (good for a sleep-over). And last but not least, our tinctures come in two tasty flavours, Natural or Cinnamint. Because our CBD Hemp oil is organic and works with your own body’s system, you don’t have to be concerned about withdrawal or side effects like you may with over-the-counter sleep aids. There’s no risk of feeling groggy or needing more caffeine to wake up the next morning.

Why it’s important!

Getting adequate sleep is a key component of any healthy lifestyle. Our bodies require long periods of sleep to restore and rejuvenate, grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesise hormones. Adding CBD Hemp Oil to your sleep routine can help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer and feel more refreshed in the morning.
