If you’re one of the millions of Americans who suffer from sleep issues, you probably already know that sleep can affect every area of your life.
Whether you have trouble falling asleep or can’t seem to stay asleep long enough to feel well-rested, cannabis could help restore your sleep cycles. In fact, cannabis has been used for centuries as a natural sleep aid because it can help you fall asleep faster and can even help lengthen the amount of deep, restorative sleep that you get. When you get quality sleep, your body is better able to heal, build and repair cells, and ward off sickness and disease. Getting proper rest also allows you to better regulate your mood, respond to stress more effectively, and concentrate more throughout the day.
Let’s take a look at how cannabis could help you sleep better!
How Can Cannabis Help With Sleep?
Cannabis contains several different natural compounds that can have beneficial effects on sleep. The two main compounds that do this are cannabinoids and terpenes.
While there are more than a hundred types of cannabinoids we know of within the cannabis plant, the ones that help the most with sleep are already quite popular. They include CBD (cannabidiol), CBN (cannabinol), and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
CBD can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBN can help provide a sedated feeling, while also helping to reduce pain and inflammation. And finally, THC can provide a combination of these effects, and then some. In addition to helping ease nausea, pain, inflammation, and general discomfort, it can help some patients to fall asleep easier with its sedative-like effects, and can help promote deeper sleep, often reducing the likelihood of nightmares.
