Sleep Disorders Are NOT Uncommon.
An estimated 50 -70 million Americans suffer from disorders of sleep and wakefulness. Additionally, 25-35% of people report they frequently have problems sleeping. Issues resulting from lack of sleep can start appearing on less than 6 hours of sleep.
It Goes Far Beyond Just "Feeling Tired".
A lack of sleep can lead to:
- Heart disease
- Weight Gain
- Anxiety Disorders
- Other Psychiatric Problems
Sleep deprivation impairs a person's ability to think, handle stress, maintain a healthy immune system and control emotions. Driver fatigue causes at least 56,000 car accidents annually, 1,550 resulting in fatalities.
Did you know sleep affects hormones such as leptin and gherlin, which affects appetite and can result in weight gain?
Prescription Dependence Can Become Dangerous.
While prescriptions do help many, they are a major contributor to deaths in the United States. Over the past 20 years, reports of prescription abuse have increased dramatically, and deaths due to accidental overdose are on the rise as well. It's not just adults who recreationally and accidentally misuse prescriptions. Among 12th graders, pharmaceutical drugs used non-medically account for 60% of the most-used substances.
Proven Alternatives Are Now Available.
CBD, as an anti-anxiolytic, relieves anxiety, a common factor in sleep disorders. Cannabidiol also works with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for all the homeostatic functions of the body. CBD regulates balance and homeostasis in the human body, essential for keeping a regular sleeping pattern. CBD has also shown to improve the quality of sleep, giving people a deeper and more restful sleep.
