Using CBD to Treat Insomnia

If you've ever seen those commercials for prescription sleep aids, then you know how expensive they can be. Hormone imbalances in the body are one of the leading causes of sleepless nights. People spend thousands of dollars on prescriptions and supplements just to cure themselves from their insomnia. If you're like most, you don't have the money to do so. That's why more people are looking for alternatives to prescription medications.

It may be a surprise to learn that CBD may help regulate your hormones and ease your symptoms of insomnia. Crying spells, difficulty sleeping, moodiness, anxiety over things that should be a common part of childhood, and to top it off, you snore so loudly you can be the only one awake at night? You may be suffering from a hormone imbalance caused by things you ingest every day. CBD is an important ingredient found in pot and hemp plants, which may help regulate insulin levels.

The way CBD works is by entering the brain through the blood stream and interacting with the GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) and GABAB (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptor 1. These receptors are present all over your body but are only activated during times of extreme stress or severe depression. People who suffer from mood swings, anxiety disorders, depression, and epilepsy have high levels of CBD in their bodies. By combining CBD with lifestyle changes and dietary supplements, it may be possible to treat insomnia naturally with little to no side effects.
