When people first hear about CBD they may wonder, “What does CBD Feel like?” Maybe you have smoked marijuana before, or perhaps you’ve only seen how it affects people on the Hollywood screen, either way, you probably still might have the same questions about hemp oil. Does CBD get you high? How does it help? What are even the differences between THC and CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) can help with insomnia, but not for the same reasons people use THC. These two chemicals are similar in healing properties, but remarkably different nonetheless. While THC can help people sleep by making them drowsy, CBD instead relieves the underlying anxiety that causes insomnia.
THC is a unique chemical because it is almost entirely identical to a compound that is made in the brain called anandamide. This chemical anandamide helps regulate your body’s metabolism, mood, pain sensitivity, and sleep cycle. These functions are why consuming THC gives you the munchies, makes you happy, reduces pain, and can cause drowsiness.
THC directly binds to cannabinoid receptors, giving the psychological effects. CBD doesn’t directly bind to any cannabinoid receptors. Instead, CBD oil elevates chemicals like anandamide to increase productivity and efficiency in the body. This elevation process reduces anxiety and promotes a healthy sleep cycle.
I am a CBD convert. After feeling the helpful effects myself and seeing it help others around me I am hopeful that more people will find peace and healing with CBDs https://t.co/RTWBQ3wAf1— Elisheva Bliss (@lost_ina_book) December 11, 2017
CBD also helps alleviate pain which can cause someone to wake up several times a night. Lack of sleep can increase pain throughout the day, which can slow down healing. Pain is also a cause of depression, another ailment to magnify pain and disrupt the sleep cycle. Using CBD topicals on targeted areas or taking edibles for internal body pain can help you with the physical and mental healing process.
If you have problems with sleep because of an addiction and the cravings are keeping you up or causing extreme anxiety, CBD can help. CBD reduces cravings and can help many ailments that the user has that made them need the medicine in the first place. This includes addicts who started by self-medicating. While it is curbing those cravings, it is helping with the anxiety and depression that usually comes along with substance abuse.
