How does CBD help sleep?
Cannabidiol has the calming and sleep promoting benefits, and strengthen the consistency of the sleep-wake cycle.
CBD may trigger a sleep response through its reported effects on the 5-HT1a serotonin receptors.
When CBD binds to these receptors it could block the anxiety or depression-causing molecules, leading to immediate relief. Some people may feel a sensation of sleepiness. (It depends on the individual's body chemistry)
