Lots of research has been undertaken surrounding CBD oil and how this can benefit our health and wellbeing. Some of the results have shown that using CBD on a regular basis can help to reduce symptoms of health problems including anxiety, depression and sleeplessness, but can CBD oil make you tired during the day?
One of the ways CBD oil can benefit the body is to help with sleeplessness, see our post about CBD for insomnia. However, one of the main questions surrounding this is whether taking CBD during the day can lead to you feeling tired. In a simple answer, no. CBD works by helping to put your endo-cannabinoid system back into balance and to change the elements that are causing disruption. So if you are having trouble sleeping at night, CBD can help to readjust your balance. And in the same way, can help to increase your focus and be more alert as well as reduce anxiety by increasing the serotonin levels in the brain. This is different to the side effects of THC which gives the mind a psychoactive effect which can lead to a drowsy and sleepy state. Whether you have a busy day of work in the office, or you’re gearing up for an athletic event, using CBD during the day can benefit your performance and your focus.
Research suggests that one of the major benefits of taking CBD oil is that consuming it on a regular basis can help to combat insomnia. This is due to the calming effects CBD oil can have to help reduce anxiety and pain which are some of the usual factors keeping people awake at night. As well as this, CBD also interacts with the brain’s receptors that control the body’s sleep cycle, helping to calm and relax the body leading to falling asleep faster.
CBD oil consists of CBD cannabinoids extracted from a hemp plant, and a carrier oil allowing it to be easily consumed and absorbed by the body. Unlike THC, the CBD component is non-psychoactive and will not change a person’s state of mind when used. The CBD chemical works by interacting with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system to help enhance responses to factors including stress, fatigue and inflammation. CBD oil can be consumed in many ways including through vaping or placing a few drops of oil under the tongue.
