Is the Covid-19 pandemic keeping you up at night?

Or maybe it’s all the politics; whatever it is, 
CBD may help.

I sleep like a baby when I take just 8.33 milligrams of full-spectrum 500 mg strength CBD a half-hour before bedtime. (That's half a dropper.)

But, CBD is not just for sleep. You can use it during the day if that’s when you’re feeling most anxious. Additionally, turning off the television, especially all that negative news and doing something you enjoy will greatly improve your mood and mindset.

There have been a lot of studies of CBD in general over the last decade and most of those have been done on animals. CBD clinical trials have shown that it has a relaxing effect on the mind.

It isn’t conclusive that CBD boosts your brain’s serotonin levels, but it may affect how chemical receptors react to the levels of serotonin already in your system. The research so far seems to show potential benefits for depression, by having a positive effect on serotonin receptors in the brain.

A 2018 review of existing studies found that CBD has anti-stress effects which could help reduce depression related to stress. You can read about that review here.

As a reminder, CBD does not make you high; there may be a minuscule amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that makes you high) in the full spectrum CBD blend, however, even if you were to drink a whole bottle of CBD, it would not make you high. (If you are concerned about passing a drug test, then CBD Isolate would be your best option. CBD Isolate contains 0.0% THC.)

With that being said, marijuana dispensaries often sell CBD containing high levels of THC; keep in mind that not all CBD is created equal.

CBD is derived from the industrial hemp plant and also from the marijuana plant. Pearl’s Gold CBD is extracted from the industrial hemp plant which is grown to minimize the amount of THC the plant produces.

My husband and I both take CBD at night before bed, not only does it help us sleep but if we are experiencing any aches and pains it helps to quell those issues as well.
