As Humans we spend nearly 1/3 of our life sleeping but are you really getting a good nights sleep and waking up well rested?
The answer is probably NO as the lastest study on sleep shows 34.3% of Irish workers claim to feel exhausted on a daily basis. The good news is your not alone when it comes to restless nights and endless cups of coffee in order to function in work.
The even better news is we have tried and tested one of the most talked about supplements on the market aimed at improving sleep and seen some impressive results.
Unless you have been living under a rock you would have heard of CBD by now and its reported benefits. CBD has been all over the media lately due to high profile Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston praising it for helping with stress, anxitey and sleep. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp. The great thing about it is:
- It wont get you high and is non addictive
- Legal in Ireland and Europe, USA
- You cant overdose
- 100% natural and even Vegan
A growing body of Scientific Research and anecdotal evidence has been supporting CBD as a sleep aid so we had to try it for ourselves and see what all the hype was about.
Picking a CBD Brand
With so many CBD brands on the Market searching for a good quality brand to try was not easy. After a lot of time online reading reviews and speaking to friends who use CBD oil regularly, we came across the Irish and UK brand Hemp Heros.
One the main reasons for picking them was due to the high number of reviews they have recieved which was by far the largest of all the CBD brands we researched. They had over 63 reviews which specifically mentioned sleep so there must be some truth to the matter.
For the first week I took 10 drops of the Hemp Heros 10% (1000mg) CBD oil as per the instructions on the box. Id been advised by other CBD users that the best time to take it was between 1 hour to 40 minutes before bed.
In the first 3- 4 days I didnt notice much of a difference in terms of sleep and was still waking up in the middle of the night and finding it difficult to fall alseep. But then on day 6 I really started to see the difference. The first thing I noticed was I was a lot more relaxed before bed and didnt find my mind was racing, overthinking the days events and work.
The biggest difference I noticed was I was getting a much deeper sleep. I was no longer waking up multiple times throughout the night and when my alarm did go off in the morning I was waking feeling well rested.
As someone who has always been a poor sleeper CBD has really worked for me so I would definetly recommend giving it a go as you have nothing to lose. Also if you are a new customer they give you 10% discount if you click the chat bot on the page.
