Many people find that CBD helps them get a better night’s sleep and wake refreshed. It isn’t just a placebo effect. Taking CBD for a better night’s sleep has a scientific basis.

Sleep disruption and disorders affect 50-70 million Americans. If you aren’t sleeping well, you aren’t alone. Many people feel like they are falling behind during the day because they can’t sleep well at night. Far worse, poor sleep is linked to many chronic health conditions. Adults who get less than seven hours of sleep each night are more likely to suffer from obesity, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, stroke and depression. 

Unfortunately, many physicians prescribe pharmaceuticals to help people sleep, rather than a more natural supplement. These drugs often leave you groggy in the morning. Worse, they create chemical dependency, so you need them in order to sleep. 

CBD is an all-natural way to get a better nights sleep. With our Rest CBD from Mission Farms, you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake refreshed. And there is no risk of addiction. 

What is CBD and how does it work?

To understand how CBD helps you sleep better, it is important to understand more about CBD and how it works.

CBD is an organic compound found in the essential oil of the hemp plant. It is called a cannabinoid because it comes from cannabis and hemp plants, but it is essentially a terpene.  Terpenes give plants their unique aroma, flavor, and color. Our bodies use these terpenes as neurotransmitters — the messengers that help cells (and even whole body systems!) communicate with another.

This messaging system within your body that uses CBD and terpenes is called your endocannabinoid system. Its job is to start and stop the processes that your body needs for healthy functioning. For example, it may kick your immune system into gear to fight a virus, but it also tells it to calm down when the intruder is defeated. It sends messages to reduce inflammation in your gut as well as ease discomfort in a swollen finger. It is responsible for the healthy functioning of many body systems and CBD is one of its most effective messengers.

CBD is one of your endocannabinoid system’s most effective messengers because it connects with over 65 cellular receptors. Some of those receptors are key to getting a good night’s sleep.

How does CBD help you sleep better?

You have adenosine receptors that help regulate when you feel sleepy and when you feel awake. The more adenosine connecting to receptors throughout your body will make you start to feel sleepy. The fewer and you start to feel awake. For example, caffeine makes you feel alert because it blocks adenosine from binding to receptors. 

CBD helps regulate the availability and transport of adenosine throughout your body so that you begin to feel sleepy when it is time to sleep and alert when it is time to be awake. So CBD doesn’t just help you sleep better, it helps you wake up in the morning. Many people experience a more balanced sleep-wake cycle when they take CBD.

Another way that CBD helps you get a better night’s sleep is by reducing stress and stress. A racing mind can make it hard to fall asleep and many of us have experienced an influx of worry when we wake in the middle of the night. 

CBD interacts with particular receptors in your nervous system that send “back off” and “stop pushing” signals throughout your body. These receptors tell your mind and body when it is time to relax and shut down. So CBD helps you to calm down, unwind, and prepare to sleep.

How do essential oils make REST CBD more effective?

If you are buying a plain old bottle of CBD, you aren’t getting the most for your money. Why? Studies show that when CBD is used as an isolated compound, it isn’t nearly as effective as when it is combined with other terpenes that work alongside the CBD. This is called the Entourage Effect.

For our Rest CBD products, we have selected essential oils comprised of terpenes that are known to work with CBD to achieve a calming and sedating effect. The result is a better night’s sleep than you will get with just a plain bottle of CBD.

Studies have shown that the terpene Linalool has calming and sedative effects. The terpene Limonene increases levels of dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate your circadian rhythm, helping you fall asleep at night and wake up in the morning. Increased serotonin improves your mood and helps you relax. Together, these terpenes work with CBD to help you get a better night’s sleep and then wake refreshed.
