Benefits of Using CBD over Sleeping Pills*

Many of the traditional medicines prescribed to treat sleep difficulties have many severe side effects, such as depression, impaired driving, anxiety, and withdrawal.

Taking CBD for sleep is non-habit forming and has relatively few minor side effects. Nausea and irritability are possible, but these are uncommon CBD effects.


Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in the United States. An estimated 30 percent of adults in the United States affected by anxiety. CBD may be an excellent alternative to prescription anxiety prescriptions because of the lack of side effects.

CBD may decrease anxiety and stress by directly affecting the brain and inadequately functioning endocannabinoid systems. Studies have shown that CBD diminishes activity in the amygdala and improves prefrontal cortex activation, two parts of the brain involved in anxiety. There is also proof that CBD can regenerate new neurons, activating CB1 receptors, which has a positive balancing impact on GABA and glutamate levels, associated with reducing anxiety.

The potential benefits of using CBD for anxiety are:*

  • Relaxing
  • Calming
  • Improved sleep
  • Less distracting thoughts
  • Improved mood

The human body’s first line of defense against any form of irritation, injury, or infection is inflammation. However, sometimes inflammation can cause problems in the body and aggravate diseases and disorders. CBD is thought to reduce inflammation and pain through numerous means and has few side effects. It is well-tolerated and non-intoxicating.*

CBD has been shown to work in the human body to combat inflammation:*

CBD binds to the CB2 receptors of overactive immune cells, stimulating an anti-inflammatory protein called the caspase.  When the caspase is activated, it sends a signal that triggers immune cell death, also known as apoptosis, thus controlling and halting the inflammatory process.

CBD also stimulates immune cells to speed up oxidative stress, resulting in apoptosis of immune cells and a reduction in pro-inflammatory cytokines.


Autoimmune diseases are becoming more and more common. 1 in 5 Americans suffer from some type of autoimmunity. CBD has shown in studies that it may be able to help people manage this lifelong illness.

CBD, also known as cannabidiol may be able to help with autoimmune diseases because of the way it interacts with the immune system. By elevating an endocannabinoid that mediates the immune functions of the body, CBD hemp oil may be able to help make the chronic illness more manageable.*


Countless people suffer from some form of disorder that affects mood and are often given prescriptions to help stabilize their moods and keep them level-headed. CBD can also be used to reduce anxiety, and enhance and stabilize mood.*

The Role of CBD in Mood Regulation

Naturally produced cannabinoids in the body allow the ECS to operate correctly and maintain homeostasis. External cannabinoids, such as CBD also impact the endocannabinoid system.

Taking CBD assists cannabinoids naturally found in the body, may help the endocannabinoid system balance itself out again. CBD mimics prescriptions like antipsychotics and antidepressants by activating the 5-HT1A receptors to relieve some symptoms of anxiety and depression. 


Many people supplement their diet with energy-boosting products to get a pick-me-up, yet many of these products aren’t always safe. CBD may be a safer alternative to help to increase user’s energy levels*

CBD Works in the Body To Increase Energy:*

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a key role with many bodily functions including energy. The endocannabinoid system incorporates a network of receptors and cannabinoids that work in together to build and sustain homeostasis or balance in the body. When there is an imbalance in the body, a person’s health can be negatively affected.

Naturally produced cannabinoids in the body allow the ECS to operate correctly and maintain homeostasis. External cannabinoids, such as CBD also impact the endocannabinoid system.


Numerous studies have assessed the use of CBD in cognitive health. CBD has shown to have far-reaching effects on attention, cognition, and emotional processing. 

CBD may have many cognitive health benefits including improvements with attention, cognition, and emotional processing. It has been known to heighten mental clarity. 

This cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant, may prevent memory impairment and protect some aspects of memory function. 

CBD has been known to affect unpleasant memories as well. Various clinical and preclinical reports have extensively verified that CBD can reduce anxiety and symptoms associated with emotional stress and memory disorders, such as PTSD, also promoting the elimination of traumatic or fearful memories.

CBD was found to promote the growth and development of nervous tissue, thus lessening the damage to cognitive capacities caused by disease, age, and trauma. This may help people who suffer from degenerative memory disorders.*


CBD, a cannabinoid from the cannabis plant, has been analyzed for its effects on the cardiovascular system and is showing promise as a potent therapy for cardiovascular diseases, in part due to its ability to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.*

CBD may be a solution to preventing and possibly treating cardiovascular diseases. Research is demonstrating that CBD can be an effective therapeutic agent because of the cannabinoid’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects.
