How Do CBD Sleep Gummies Work?

Sleeping should be the easiest and most looked-forward-to part of our day. Unfortunately, it’s not always that easy. 

Tossing and turning. Racing thoughts. Replaying certain conversations you had throughout the day. Over and over. Could I have handled that differently? Is Judy from accounting mad at me? I should call my grandma more. How is it 3 AM?! 

It starts to feel like the internal dialogue could go on forever and you’re worried you’ll wake up more tired than when you first laid your head down. But there may be a way to relax those thoughts, worries and what-ifs. A way to restore your natural circadian rhythm. Finally get the deep, restful sleep people are always going on about. 

Circadian Rhythm & REM Sleep

Humans all have what is called a circadian rhythm – more or less, an internal clock – that tells our bodies when to wake and sleep. Sometimes this clock gets off track. No big deal, right? 

Let’s say over the weekends you stay up later than usual but don’t have to be up the next morning. Time to sleep in! Beautiful bliss. Until Monday rolls around, the 6 AM alarm rings, and you peel yourself out of bed as if you’ve never woken up this early in your entire life. 

Not only is this a rude awakening, but a good representation of how circadian rhythm and REM sleep go hand in hand. When our circadian rhythm becomes misaligned, our REM sleep (or deep sleep) is often also disturbed. 

Let’s take a quick look without going too deep into the neurology of things. Intense brain activity occurs in REM sleep. These active periods help to restore your memory and learning functions in order to promote alertness, decision-making, and overall ability to engage throughout the day. 

So how do we still enjoy our weekends without knocking our circadian rhythm all out of whack? Can Mondays really not be that bad?

So, How Can CBD Sleep Gummies Help?

You may see improvements in both the quality and quantity of your sleep by using CBD Sleep Aids, like gummies. CBD is processed within the same internal system which regulates our sleep, pain, emotions, and bodily functions. This natural processing allows for our bodies to receive both direct and indirect benefits of CBD. 

CBD gummies are an easy, convenient way to get an everyday wellness boost. Some gummies are even specifically designed for sleep and integrate additional natural hormones and herbal sleep aids to promote calm before sleep. Some of the most frequently used include: 

  • Melatonin
  • Ashwagandha
  • Chamomile
  • Valerian Root
  • Lemon Balm

There are also several options when choosing CBD Sleep Gummies. Since CBD is a hemp-derived product, you can choose between Full Spectrum CBD Sleep Gummies and Broad Spectrum CBD Sleep Gummies

The primary difference between these two products is that full spectrum includes a small serving of THC (the psychoactive ingredient) since it utilizes the “full” hemp plant. Whereas broad spectrum CBD is THC-free. 

It’s really what works best for you and your lifestyle!

When to Take CBD Sleep Gummies?

Most companies recommend taking a CBD sleep aid roughly 30 minutes before shut eye. So go ahead and take your sleepy-time gummy, brush your teeth, go about your night time routine and jump into bed. By that time you should be well on your way to faster, deeper sleep.
