CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has been studied for its relaxing and anti-anxiety properties. Research has shown that CBD may help improve sleep quality by regulating sleep-wake cycles and reducing anxiety and stress. The body naturally produces endocannabinoids, which are involved in regulating sleep, but certain external factors such as stress can disrupt this regulation. CBD can act as an endocannabinoid supplement, helping to maintain a healthy balance between wakefulness and sleep. What's more, some CBD-rich cannabis varieties may also contain terpenes, which promote relaxation and induce the feeling of calm needed to fall asleep easily.
