Anxiety, stress, and sleep disorders?

CBD can change your life!

Since numerous scientific studies have focused on the beneficial effects of CBD, its therapeutic potential for combating anxious and stressful states is increasingly evident. Let’s discover together how the use of CBD oil can improve life!

In such an unstable historical moment, where daily life is often marked by hectic rhythms, it is very common to feel overwhelmed and disoriented, facing days afflicted by an unpleasant sensation of generalized anxiety.

Anxiety, stress, and depressive states are clinically distinct aspects, but with a common symptom

Anxiety, stress, and depressive states are clinically distinct aspects, but their common symptom is lowered mood tone: all energies converge into a constant state of pre-alertness, feeling restless, sometimes irritable, and this, in the long run, can negatively impact interpersonal relationships and influence one’s choices.

It is also established that biological factors related to hormones, associated with a social status too often subordinate, expose women more to these types of disorders.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the active ingredients naturally found in the Cannabis Sativa plant and interacts almost immediately with the endocannabinoid system. It is interesting to consider how CBD does not have a targeted action towards a particular area of the human body or a specific pathology but acts as a true moderator of the endocannabinoid system, restoring mechanisms already present in the human body and returning any situations of imbalance to normalcy.

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE SHOWS: CBD IS A WELLNESS ALLY

Studies dating back to the second half of the ‘900s had already highlighted the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, but more recently, two studies conducted in the United Kingdom and New Zealand have revealed very interesting results regarding the treatment of anxious and depressive states.

All data from these studies suggest that using CBD oil to counteract states of anxiety and depression is decidedly beneficial, and most people treated report a marked improvement in perceived well-being, confirming an increase in their quality of life.

Even in 2015, the journal Neurotherapeutics published a review of studies conducted up to that point to verify the potential and benefits of CBD, and it is interesting to note that its use is also effective in reducing anxiety related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

CBD OIL TO COMBAT SLEEP DISORDERS

Very often, sleep disorders and insomnia are closely linked to states of anxiety and stress. It is, therefore, inevitable to think that by intervening specifically at the origin and mitigating some unpleasant sensations during wakefulness, the quality of sleep will also benefit immediately.

CBD oil reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and prolongs the overall duration of sleep

The treatment of insomnia depends directly on the cause that provoked it (anxiety, stress, bad habits, disturbed environments, certain pathologies), but also resorting to natural remedies, among which CBD oil stands out, which reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and prolongs the overall duration of sleep, is certainly a doubly rewarding choice.

In recent years, it has also been proven that CBD is a precious ally in attenuating disturbances in the REM phase, reducing non-REM physiological sleep.

CBD OIL IN EVERYDAY LIFE

Being a natural remedy and completely devoid of any psychotropic effect, incorporating CBD oil into one’s daily routine is a quick and straightforward process; however, it is important to remember that it is always necessary to choose safe and high-quality products.

The rapid absorption by the body ensures that the beneficial effects of CBD manifest quickly, usually within 30/40 minutes depending on the method of intake, although there is a subjective margin that varies from person to person.

Generally, a concentration of 5% CBD oil is recommended to support daily anxiety states and the most common sleep disorders, possibly to be replaced or supplemented with a higher concentration (10%) during periods of more intense stress
