In this video, we break down whether or not CBD can help with insomnia. There are tons of people who are having trouble and wanna know if CBD will help them go to sleep fast and keep them asleep for them to get a good night’s rest and be ready for the next big day. If you’ve been researching sleep solutions online, you’ve likely seen “CBD” pop up on your feed. The hemp-derived compound has become a buzzy term on the Internet in recent years and is notable for its ability to reduce anxiety and treat poor slumber.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found on the flower of the cannabis plant. Cannabis contains more than a hundred of these different compounds, or phytocannabinoids, including the popular psychoactive one tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
However, unlike THC, CBD doesn’t trigger hallucinations or intoxication. In my experience, it creates a subtle calm sensation that’s great for treating anxiety, joint pain, and, yes, even poor sleep. It also differs from THC in that it’s totally legal to buy and consume hemp-derived CBD in all 50 states, as long as the concoction doesn’t have more than .3% of THC.
