It seems like CBD is everywhere, doesn’t it? CBD has been an up-and-comer in the health and medical community for a while. But in the last year or so we’ve seen CBD—a natural, non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant—used to treat issues ranging from anxiety and sleep problems to chronic pain and lack of mental focus.
I’ve been interested and excited for a long time about the prospective benefits of CBD for sleep, mood, and other aspects of health. I’ve been discussing the potential health benefits of the cannabis plant for several years. In 2017, I wrote about the very promising scientific research showing how CBD can improve sleep, reduce symptoms of anxiety, and help protect brain function.
It’s because of all this research I decided to include hemp-derived CBD in my own sleep formula, Aktive Sleep Booster. (In addition to CBD, Aktive Sleep Booster is made from other natural ingredients that promote sleep, including valerian and hops.) I’m really excited and proud of what we’ve made and its capacity to help people sleep more—and better.
