How does a restful night of sleep make you feel?
Sleep is the best way to take care of your physical and mental health, but also all things seem much easier, and happier with more sunshine.
Unfortunately, there are over 40 million people in America alone suffer from chronic long-term sleep disorders, and an additional 20 million people experience occasional sleep problems.
Fortunately, healthy options for improving sleep have evolved and have become more mainstream. Such as meditation, yoga, hot baths, and herbal supplements, apps like Calm or Headspace. Very recently, CBD has been at the forefront of wellness, especially for enhancing and improving the quality of sleep.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, 50-70 million American adults experience symptoms of a sleep disorder. 30-40% of the American population experience insomnia at some point in their lives and about 10-15% of adults will deal with chronic insomnia.
This statistic is a staggering concern, and no one should give up blissful eight-hour sleep nights and energy-filled beautiful days. Sleep is essential and fundamental for maintaining our mental and physical health. Spent the entire next day feeling like a nauseous zombie in Netflix shows does not belong to a healthy lifestyle.

American sleep association report shows that researchers discovered that the endocannabinoid system plays a role in maintaining certain body functions, such as mood, appetite, sleep, and regulating circadian rhythms. Within the endocannabinoid system is a network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. The two primary receptors identified are CB1 and CB2.
WebMD also indicated that not sleeping well leaves you with daytime fatigue, irritability, and trouble concentrating long enough to get anything done, which is especially upsetting on days.
