Insomnia, or insomnia, is a sleep disorder. It can be short-lived, lasting a few days or weeks, or it can last for months or years. Inevitably, however, poor quality and insufficient duration of sleep contribute to the inconveniences of everyday life.
Symptoms of insomnia: - lethargy;
- daytime sleepiness;
- energy loss;
- gloomy mood;
- general poor physical and mental well-being.
Insomnia can occur as an independent symptom or as a consequence of another mental or physical illness. The causes can be different: stress, unfavorable sleeping conditions, poor sleep hygiene, chronic pain, taking certain medications and illnesses. Unstable working hours, jet lag and time zone changes also have a negative effect on the sleep pattern.
All of this impairs concentration and memory, affects work and personal life, and can also increase the risk of accidents and chronic diseases.
Treatment options range from prescription medications to exercise, diet, and meditation. However, some methods may have side effects while others are not sufficiently effective. For example, sleeping pills, popular with insomniacs, suppress the central nervous system, making you sleepy and causing withdrawal syndrome.
CBD, on the other hand, has a positive effect on sleep quality due to its natural effect on the ECS:
- reduces stress and anxiety;
- relieves muscle tension;
- reduces irritability and improves mood;
- reduces chronic pain and inflammation;
- harmonizes the sleep rhythm;
- supports relaxation.
The calming, anti-inflammatory, and antipsychotic properties of CBD are at the heart of the fight against insomnia as they minimize the symptoms that lead to trouble falling asleep.
