Humans are unable to function at peak emotional, physical, and mental levels with a lack of a good night’s sleep. Insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and other ailments, can cause the person to seek over the counter prescription pharmaceuticals for relief. Consequently, options like cannabis are being explored for natural sleep aid.
A sizable uptick was prompted by the insurgence of CBD, in the number of preclinical and clinical studies that were focusing on CBD’s value in the treatment of a whole host of disorders. However, studies focusing on CBD and sleep specifically are limited.
Although THC has shown to have a sedative effect and reduces the time needed to fall asleep, the harmonized interaction between cannabis compounds might carry over to sleep.
While THC is a sedative, it has other useful sleep properties as well such as causing catalepsy. According to Dr. Dustin Sulak, the proven effectiveness of CBD might be the sole reduction of anxiety which allows relaxation and the continuation of the person’s natural sleep mechanism.
CBD has reported giving either a stimulating or calming effect, depending on the consumer, which raises ambiguity. Although little, but research indicates that higher doses of CBD cause a calming effect, while lower doses cause a stimulating effect. CBD had reported giving hypnotic-like effects in a 1977 animal study. However, the little research that has been performed, proves that the effectiveness of CBD is dependant on the person’s presence or absence of a normal sleep rhythm or sleep disorder.
CBD and REM sleep
Certain sleep anomalies that occur during REM sleep, have been found to be helped by CBD. Non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep are the two types of sleep. NREM sleep is progressed through a 90-minute cycle, which eventually leads up to a REM sleep, where dreaming occurs along with an increase in brain wave activity. Furthermore, memory is solidified in REM sleep.
Limb muscles temporarily paralyze during normal REM sleep, so that a person is unable to act out his dreams. People are able to flail and act out vivid and violent dreams, in Parkinson’s disease and REM behavior disorder. Doses of CBD ranging from 75 to 300 mg were shown to help such patients, according to a preliminary study. Sleep cycles are not altered and people seem to keep awake by low-dose CBD formulations. However, the benefits for circadian rhythm disorders and narcolepsy could be proven in the near future as it may help people stay awake during daylight hours.
Should CBD be used for sleep?
The effect of CBD is highly individualized due to the uniqueness of every individual’s body. Sulak explained how a person’s negative response to THC, would cause him to be reluctant in using CBD on the same person. Some patients have shown high sensitivity to THC, along with impairment in the morning. Sulak recommends CBD strains that contain high levels of myrcene.
According to Sulak, although CBD may prove beneficial for people with sleep disturbances, pragmatically designed clinical trials are still important, with a recommended algorithm type approach.
Sulak ensures the safety of CBD, hence claiming higher doses of 100 to 200 mg of CBD to be safe as well if lower doses of 10 to 50 mg prove ineffective.
A 2018 study, that wasn’t initially aimed at CBD’s effects on sleep, still demonstrated the safety of CBD at higher doses of 1500mg to 6000mg. Furthermore, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine had concluded in a 2017 report that despite the lack of specific CBD sleep studies, moderate evidence exists for the support of CBD to be proven effective to improve short-term sleep conditions.

Good news for Sciatica patients: CBD oil relieves the pain
The recent studies on CBD oil have unfolded its utility in various fields of medicine. Researches on the effects of CBD oil on sciatica patients show that they can prove to be very useful in its treatment. The results have shown that the oil can work wonders to alleviate the Sciatica pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a severe pain caused by disruption in the sciatica nerve. Anything that disturbs the nerve results in extreme and sometimes, unbearable pain.
Sciatica is a nerve that starts at the lower back and extends through the hips and legs to the toes. It sends messages from the brain to the legs via spinal cord. Since, it is a long nerve, patients usually complain of the pain at the lower back, hips, legs and heels.
A compression on the Sciatica causes this severe pain. The major causes of compression are a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine.
What is CBD oil
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is derived from the Marijuana plant. It relieves the pain without causing any psychoactive or mind-altering effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD powder from the marijuana plant. Coconut or olive oil is mixed in it for better application.
The recent researches on CBD oil have revealed its anti-seizure, neuroprotective and pain relieving properties. Due to its wondrous effects on human body, many celebrities advocate for CBD.
Utility of CBD oil for Sciatica patients
CBD oil works by increasing the number of pain modulators that stimulate a response to the pain. Our mind has cannabinoid receptors that modulate the pathways that stimulate a response to the pain and negative emotions.
As sciatica pain arises, the CBD oil applied on the respective part works to reach the brain in order to stimulate a faster response to the pain.
While the Sciatica is a very painful condition, it is mostly treatable with medicines. However, most pain relievers have side effects that cause harm in the long run. In contrast, CBD oil works naturally to enhance the receptors with minimum side effects.
Best CBD oil to relieve Sciatica
Every person’s reaction to different types of CBD oil varies from the other. One cannot say with surety, since what works for some might not work for the others. This is primarily because every person has a different set of genetics, general health and tolerance.
Natural and organic remedies take time to show their reaction. While CBD takes some time to relieve the pain, it is undoubtedly one of the harmless ways to do so.
CBD oil works best when used with the consultation of a doctor. Before buying, one should make sure that the oil contains laboratory verified ingredients.
