CBD and sleep
About 10,000 years ago, on the volcanic Oki Islands of the South East coast of mainland Japan someone, was cultivating Cannabis. Given the distant geographical context of the Islands, it seems likely that this ancient grower wasn't the first human to realize that crop that they were cultivating had certain beneficial properties.
If anyone is familiar with cannabis it does not take much cannabis consumption to realize the wide range for properties that were already known to our ancient forefathers well before they began to be documented by the, for example, the ancient Assyrians
It seems a great tragedy of human history that we are now having to relearn what was already well known by our forebearers.
As we originally developed our CBD Oil and CBD salve to assist with sleep and pain, we thought that we would pull together some of the current studies on CBD and Sleep.
The patients themselves suffered from a wide range of ailments and pain conditions, including MS multiple sclerosis, arthritis and intractable cancer. After taking Sativix, a cannabis-based medicine, the study found that 40%- 50% of the individual studied experience "very good sleep". Sleep is so important for a good quality of life its great to see scientists "discovering" it too
In a very recent study published on the 9 January 2019, scientists set out with the intention of studying the benefits of CBD on sleep
The study concerned 103 individuals and tracked anxiety and sleep over months. Patients were given 25-75 mg of CBD in capsule form. Within the first months, 72% of patients experienced decreased anxiety and 68% experience improved sleep
A final study we reviewed, investigated child insomnia and PTSD in an 11 year-old girl
Over 6 months the girl "A gradual increase in sleep quality and quantity and a decrease in her anxiety were noted. After 5 months, the patient was sleeping in her own room most nights and handling the new school year with no difficulties. "
