CBD Versus Melatonin

CBD Versus Melatonin

How CBD and melatonin work together to help you get a good night's sleep.

If you've ever lain awake thinking seemingly endlessly about past, present, and future, try CBD.

According to Daniel Whitelocke, MD, "CBD's well-established role in reducing anxiety...makes it an ideal tool to calm intrusive thoughts before laying down to sleep.

"Insomnia results from an overactive stress reaction that's spilling into a rest time when we're not trying to process conscious trauma. CBD can suppress this dysregulated cycle of stress hormone overactivation and equalize the sleep and wake rhythm through counteracting hormones."

To ease the late-night anxiety that Dr. Whitelocke is talking about, CBD acts on the endocannabinoid receptors in your limbic system, which helps regulate pain, emotions, memories, and sleep. CBD also works with the hypothalamus to regulate stress.

By helping to regulate your circadian rhythm, CBD ensures that you progress through the stages of sleep without any interruption.

It can also bring comfort where there is chronic pain or symptoms of restless leg syndrome -- the sorts of thing that can keep you tossing and turning all night long.

Why not just take melatonin?

Your body naturally produces melatonin, a hormone that plays a role in regulating your sleep-wake cycle. Production and release of melatonin depends on time of day; secretion of it normally increases after it starts to get dark.

Exposure to light, whether of lamps or electronic gadgets, can impede production of melatonin, making it tougher to get to sleep and stay asleep. Its production can also be impaired by certain diseases and mood disorders, and melatonin levels tend to decline as you grow older.

A melatonin supplement helps you sleep in many of the same ways that CBD does. So why not rely on melatonin alone?

CBD and melatonin work better together, and Medterra's CBD Good Night Tablets are available at Mushroom New Orleans.

Because CBD and melatonin complement each other, using them together can be even more effective in helping you sleep soundly than using either one alone.

All Medterra products are under the regulation of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. Independent third-party lab testing ensures consistent potency and quality and that all products are completely THC-free.

So think of Medterra CBD Good Night Tablets -- which provide a quick-dissolving dose of CBD with a dash of melatonin -- as a one-two punch against bad sleep. A perfect addition to your nighttime routine.
