CBD Recipes to Promote Restful Sleep

If you can’t sleep (even after counting sheep), you’re not alone.

Get this.

In order to function effectively, we need at least seven hours of sleep each night. Here’s the thing, though. Only 21% of Americans get this much sleep. Most of us are lucky to squeeze in six hours a night. At one point or another, at least 60% of people will experience sleep problems in their lifetime.

We’re busy. Our modern, fast-paced lifestyles aren’t exactly the most conducive to us getting the sleep we need. But we need this sleep to function. Ever experienced insomnia? It wrecks you. Which is why countless people who can’t sleep turn toward sleeping pills to help them get to sleep and stay asleep.

Popping a pill to get a good night’s sleep isn’t exactly all it’s cracked up to be, however. Let’s take a look.

The Problem with Sleeping Pills

According to Consumer Reports, the amount of money Americans spend on sleep aids is expected to grow to over $50 billion by 2022. And while turning to a sleeping pill (be it a prescription or over-the-counter) might help temporarily relieve trouble sleeping, these medications can come at a cost.

Generally, sleeping pills are prescribed for a short time. Think no longer than a week. They were created not as a long-term solution, but as a short-term aid to encourage drowsiness and help people who suffer from sleep problems get the sleep they need.

Sure, they might work for some, but they can be addictive and are known to contain several unwanted side effects. Following are few side effects of sleeping pills.

  • Increased Risk of Cancer or Early Death

One study found that individuals who took 18 sleeping pills or less a year had a 3.5 higher risk of early death than those who didn’t take them at all. It also found that those who took more than 132 sleeping pills a year had a 5 times higher risk of early death and a 35% higher risk of developing cancer.

“What our study shows,” said study author Dr. Daniel F. Kripke, “is that sleeping pills are hazardous to your health and might cause death by contributing to the occurrence of cancer, heart disease, and other ailments.” He also expressed that sleeping pills could be “as risky as cigarettes.”

  • Risk of Tolerance, Dependence and Addiction

For some, it’s possible to take a sleeping pill, get the sleep they need and never touch a sleep aid again. This isn’t, however, the case for everyone. A huge problem associated with sleeping pills is that a person’s body can get accustomed to them. This can lead to taking more than the recommended dosage. For many people, sleeping pill addiction happens when they start upping their dosage to get the sleep they so desperately need.

  • Serious Side Effects

Even if you don’t get addicted to sleeping pills, they’re still known to contain some pretty serious side effects. Daytime drowsiness, confusion, blurred vision, shallow breathing, dry mouth and throat, and more are all associated with taking sleeping pills.

While the pill might help someone get the sleep they need at night, it can seriously impede their function when they’re not sleeping! When the whole goal of taking sleeping pills is to get the sleep necessary to function optimally throughout the day, the side effects associated with sleeping pills seem to take away from the overall objective of taking them in the first place.

CBD for Restful Sleep

CBD oil and restful sleepIf you can’t sleep, there’s no reason you have to turn to a sketchy sleeping pill to get the rest you need. CBD can help. And not only is it totally natural, but it’s completely safe and non-habit forming.

CBD isn’t exactly sedating. In fact, it’s shown to increase wakefulness. So how exactly does it promote restful sleep? The same way it works for so many other conditions. By helping bring balance to the endocannabinoid system.

Research indicates that endocannabinoid signaling regulates sleep stability. An April 2017 review highlights that “preliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that CBD may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia.” It’s believed that the non-psychoactive cannabinoid holds promise not only for REM sleep behavior disorder but for excessive daytime sleepiness as well.

Interested in seeing if CBD can help you get the sleep you need?

The people who swear by CBD for sleep say taking the desired serving of the cannabinoid 1-2 hours before bed does wonders for helping them get a good night’s rest.

Check out the following five CBD recipes that might just help you fall asleep fast — no counting sheep required.

5 CBD Recipes to Promote Restful Sleep

1. CBD Turmeric Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Desired serving of CBD tincture

Directions:
Pour all ingredients except CBD into a saucepan and heat until warm. Add CBD, stir and enjoy.

Benefits:
Not only is turmeric well-known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties, but it can also encourage better sleep. The natural sugar found in honey slightly raises insulin levels and allows for tryptophan (the essential amino acid that helps produce serotonin and melatonin) to enter the brain more quickly. And almonds are another source of melatonin, which is a sleep-regulating hormone.

2. CBD Cherry Nightcap

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened, tart cherry juice
  • ½ cup white grape juice
  • ½ dropper valerian root tincture
  • Desired serving of CBD tincture

Directions:
Simply add all ingredients together, stir and enjoy.

Benefits:
A 2010 study led to the discovery that drinking about 16 ounces of tart cherry juice during the day could lead to a significant decrease in insomnia. Tart cherries are rich in melatonin (which helps to regulate sleep cycles), while valerian root is an herb that has been used to promote restful sleep for centuries. The white grape juice helps to cut the tart flavor of the cherries.

3. CBD-Infused Honey Lavender Tea

Ingredients:

  • Warm water
  • Lavender tea bag
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Desired serving of CBD tincture
  • Warm almond milk (if desired)

Directions:
Steep lavender tea bag in warm water for 4-5 minutes, add honey, CBD and warm almond milk. Stir to incorporate all ingredients and enjoy an hour or so before bed.

Benefits:
Lavender has long been known to help reduce stress and ease mild tension. Research shows that lavender can help increase slow-wave sleep, which is paramount for relaxing muscles and slowing heart rate. The honey sweetens things up, the milk (dairy or non-dairy) adds a soothing touch and the CBD simply works some extra magic.

4. CBD, Banana and Almond Butter Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas (frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • Desired serving of CBD tincture

Directions:
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Drink 1-2 hours before bed.

Benefits:
Bananas are amazing for sleep as they’re full of magnesium and help raise levels of melatonin. Almonds are also a good source of magnesium, which can help promote sound sleep and naturally relax tense muscles. The honey not only sweetens up your smoothie but has sleep benefits of its own. The added CBD is like icing on the cake. This is the perfect blended nightcap, great for warmer nights when hot tea just won’t do.

5. Oats with Warm Milk, Honey and CBD

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Desired serving of CBD
  • Pinch salt (optional)

Directions:
Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add oats and cook over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in desired serving of CBD when fully cooked. Sweeten with honey, if desired.

Benefits:
You know those nights when you want a snack before bed? This is the perfect (CBD-infused) snack to promote restful sleep. Oats promote the production of melatonin, which will help you wind down naturally so you can get the sleep you need. With the addition of CBD to promote further relaxation, the combination of the two could easily have you sleeping like a baby with a full, warm belly.

Can CBD Help You Get the Sleep You Need?

If you can’t sleep, there’s no reason you need to turn to a sleeping pill to help you get the rest you need. At Joy Organics, we believe nature has given us everything we need to thrive. And when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, there are plenty of natural things that can help.

When taken in smaller servings, CBD has shown to reduce daytime sleepiness, which is vital for keeping a healthy sleep-wake cycle. It’s also shown to help decrease anxiety, which is one of the largest contributing factors to why people aren’t getting the sleep they need. CBD has also shown to increase total sleep time, which is gold for people who wake up in the night and have trouble falling back asleep, something Joy experienced herself.

These CBD recipes we’ve shared combine CBD with other natural ingredients known to promote peaceful sleep. Do you use CBD to help you get the sleep you need?

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

    -Robin Hood / Lone Star Organic

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
