Can CBD Oil Benefit Sleep Quality?

Filed under: Uncategorized — brianna bloom @ 9:11 pm

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, has entered the spotlight in recent years due to increasing research showing its potential health benefits and medicinal uses. CBD is a chemical compound called a “cannabinoid” that is found in the Cannabis sativa plant (from which both hemp and marijuana are produced). The compound is extracted and mixed with oil to create CBD oil, which is then used as a supplement to help relieve chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and other ailments. Unlike its sister compound THC — the chemical responsible for the “high” feeling one gets from using marijuana — CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects. (more…)

It’s not rocket science: a good night’s sleep makes you feel good, energetic, and productive, while a poor night’s sleep often makes you feel anxious, foggy, irritable, or even downright sick. And, in fact, it’s true that sleep is inextricably linked to a number of health factors.

Filed under: Uncategorized — brianna bloom @ 7:06 am

Habits that Contribute to Sleep Challenges

It is well-researched and widely accepted that sleep is a major contributing factor to overall health and wellness. Yet, when compared to other factors like diet and exercise, it is an often overlooked or compromised priority that takes a backseat in the cadence of our daily lives. According to the the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. In Dallas, the 2017 American Fitness Index report showed that only 67 percent of Dallas area residents were getting the recommended minimum of seven or more hours of sleep per day — one of several factors contributing to Dallas ranking 38th of 50 on the index, which measures health and community fitness at the metropolitan level in the United States.
