An unusual tip for a good night’s sleep
Have you considered CBD for sleep

How CBD works
In our bodies, we have a system called the endocannabinoid system – it was only discovered in the 1990’s hence the research and information on it is all pretty new and not quite mainstream yet, . The endocannabinoid system has the responsibility of regulating a number of factors within the body, including:
- Central nervous system
- Digestive System
The endocannabinoid system consists of cannabinoid receptors (known as CB1 and CB2) which interact with endocannabinoids that are produced by the body. CBD can also interact with the cannabinoid receptors boosting endocannabinoid system and optimise its effect.
Who can use CBD sleep aids?
CBD sleep aids are considered to be both safe and non-addictive but it is advised but if you are considering trying CBD it is important that you discuss it first with your GP This advise is especially pertinent if you are taking medication.
It may be a quirky and unusual answer to your sleep issues but it is definitely an interesting one!
