    Can CBD improve sleep quality
    Because CBD is able to interact with receptors throughout the body, it has a wide range of effects that science is only beginning to discover.

    Since most CBD and sleep research is preclinical, it is difficult to pinpoint what is going on without much deeper research. There are a few ways that CBD has been suggested to affect sleep:

    First, CBD can improve the quality of sleep by addressing a side effect of another problem. For example, research has shown that cannabinoids are able to reduce pain and improve sleep. Sleep disorders are a common symptom for those who suffer from chronic pain, so it may be the case that pain becomes more manageable, and improved sleep is the result.

    There is also evidence that CBD can directly affect the sleep cycle, preventing anxiety-induced REM sleep suppression. If this is the case, CBD can help promote the natural sleep cycle and prevent its divergence from those suffering from anxiety or stress-related sleep disorders. This is supported by further research that found that CBD has helped to maintain NREM sleep stability.

    These findings are exciting and sobering. Exciting because it shows that CBD could be potential in people to get the peace they need. Sobering, because this is all initial research, and much more needs to be done to finally say whether CBD affects sleep and how it does it. As such, CBD is currently not considered a sleep aid and is only used as a nutritional supplement. But as with most CBD-based research, things are very promising.
