How can CBD Tea help with sleep
There are several reasons why people struggle with their sleep – raised cortisol levels and anxiety/stress being the most common. Luckily CBD is renowned for calming the nervous system to reduce stress AND can balance out hormone excretion. But it can also have mild sedative effects if taken in high doses. There is a lot more research being done into the effects of CBD on sleep. One recent study found that 160mg of CBD increased sleep duration when testing against lower levels of CBD, a placebo and nitrazapam.
Our CBD Tea is a favourite with those wanting a bedtime cuppa that really does help settle you into sleep and keep you there. So is CBD Tea right for you?
Let’s first look at which sleep pattern sounds like you…
- Fast to sleep but wake often
- Steady to sleep but wake at 3 or 4 am
- Cannot get to sleep / insomnia
If you’re number 1 and have a night of interruption, I would recommend the Fruit Explosion CBD Tea – it’s naturally caffeine free as it’s made from fruits. Make sure you’re not drinking too close to bedtime to minimise the night time toilet trips. 1 to 2 cups carry enough CBD to help most people deepen their sleep and avoid as many regular wake ups.
There’s plenty of us in the ‘4am club’. No bother getting off to sleep, but when it turns to this side of dawn… ‘ping!’. If we were a bird or if our culture worked alongside the rhythms of nature, this would be fine, but we’re not and we don’t. Here’s what I do… a dose of CBD at bedtime. The Cleansing Blossom is a great night time blend. This helps me get off to sleep faster and really deepens those crucial first 5 or 6 hours. If the dawn chorus has me awake at 3 or 4, I take a shot of my 8% Water Soluble to quickly lower the adrenalin that is now pumping about my body and calm the nerves which are triggering my brain to think of all sorts of nonsense. Within minutes I’m off again.
If you struggle to get to sleep at all it could be that you have high cortisol levels at night which can be caused by high stress levels. Having a cup of CBD Tea at bedtime can help regulate your cortisol levels and ease you into sleep. But will it be strong enough to keep you there? For some people yes, but for others who’s insomnia can be chronic, you may be best taking one of our high strength oral oils to get a larger milligram dose into your system. We’d recommend up to 70mg at bedtime. This study proves higher cbd doses reduces cortisol levels.
