Right this very minute, 70 million Americans live with a sleep disorder. Ten million take prescription medication for it every day.* And if you’ve escaped the misery of not sleeping thus far, odds aren’t great your luck will stick.
This is a public health epidemic.
Sleep woes can be attributed to any number of underlying issues— from chronic pain to anxiety, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and PTSD. How those affect your sleep can be just as variable, but lack of sleep hurts the body and the mind and has been linked to obesity, diabetes and depression.
A good night’s sleep can be facilitated by turning off what is known as your CB1 receptor. For all you stressed and anxious ones, this is easier said than done. But the good news is insomnia can be treated with cannabis—which actually stimulates that CB1 receptor and allows it to turn off. Let’s hear it for tetrahydrocannabinol or THC—the cannabinoid best known for sedation or relaxation.
But that falling asleep bit only accounts for a portion of society’s challenges with sleep. For the rest of us, the issue is not falling asleep, but staying asleep. Conditions like restless leg syndrome and chronic pain are better addressed by the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol or CBD. It lengthens the effectiveness of the THC while also providing its own synergistic benefits.
In the end, not all sleep disorders call for the same treatment. Your task is to get to the bottom of what’s wrong and build a personalized plan from there.
