Columbia Care Platinum – CBD for sleep #AD

Fed up of sleepless nights? To wired to unwind at night? Sound familiar?

I have suffered with insomnia on and off for the majority of my life. I used to find it very difficult to switch off and relax and would often find myself getting out of bed to start my day in the early hours of the morning.

Around mid morning I would feel my body crash and I could barely keep my eyes open. With energetic children, being tired was not an option so I tried CBD at night to relax me.

I didn’t see the results at first, however, I kept taking the CBD oil and in time I found I was getting a better nights sleep.

It turns out I am not alone. Ask any Brit how they are and the chances are they will respond saying they’re tired! In fact, according to UK sleep statistics 2021*, 1 in 3 people in the UK regularly complain of a bad night’s sleep.

Results also show that only 6% of us get a full 8 hours sleep and 1 in 3 Britons suffer from insomnia resulting in a staggering 200,000 lost work days a year. 35-44 year-olds are the ones who struggle the most to get a good night’s sleep with only 20.71% achieving the dream of eight hours shut-eye.

Why do we need sleep?

Sleep is an essential function that allows your body to recharge and repair. Sleep leaves you feeling refreshed and alert when you wake up. If you have good sleep and good sleep habits it helps your body to remain healthy. Without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly which can impact on our ability to concentrate, think clearly and process memories.

What can affect our sleep for the better or worse?

There are a number of things that can impact our sleep. Since our sleep is influenced by different neurotransmitter signals in the brain, foods and medicine that change the balance of these signals affect whether we feel alert or drowsy and how well we sleep.

Experts agree there are several things we can do to help ourselves sleep better including having a regular night time routine. Our brain quickly recognises a habit and a “wind down” routine before bed is a good habit to form! It’s also important to go “tech-free” at least one hour before going to sleep and to avoid caffeine or alcohol – all things we probably know but how many of us actually help ourselves by doing them!?

“Quality sleep is essential for a healthy mind and body,” says Dr Marion Sloan, a GP from Sheffield. “Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get a good night’s sleep but there are things we can do to give ourselves the best chance of sleeping well and properly recharging.”

Does CBD affect sleep quality?

“CBD is not a sleeping pill,” says Rosemary Mazanet, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at Columbia Care. “It is not a tactical tool to be used if you are wound up and can’t sleep. CBD modulates the homeostasis in the body providing relaxation and therefore sleep,” says Rosemary, “While some people might have an immediate improvement in sleep, CBD needs to be part of your regime, people feel that after a week it definitely has an effect.”
