How Does It Work?
Cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system, which regulates your mood, cognitive functions, pain and appetite. This means CBD has the promise of helping to relieve stress, pain, and nausea. A main reason CBD is used for sleep is it’s impact on stress, or cortisol, levels. This calming effect helps users fall asleep, but CBD also appears to be able to help users stay asleep.
