How Weed Helps You Sleep
A good sleep can determine whether or not you will have a good or bad day. No matter what you do – your sleep cycle is extremely important for your overall well-being. Unfortunately for some, a good night’s sleep is hard to come by – but we are here to help! Science has proven that with the help of certain cannabis strains you can improve your chances for a better night’s sleep.
The recommended amount of sleep the average adult needs is at least seven hours. By achieving 7 hours of sleep you have given your body the opportunity to rest, relax and rejuvenate — so when was the last time you had 7 hours of sleep? It is estimated that between 30-40% of adults suffer from some kind of sleeping disorder – diagnosed or not. It is believed that 10-15% of adults suffer from chronic insomnia – so the statistics say a good night’s sleep is hard to get.
The Importance of Sleep
Sleep is basically the best thing you can do for your body and mind — while you sleep your body relaxes, releases stress, improves your memory, can lower blood pressure and so much more. This is why it is crucial that you get a good night’s sleep as often as possible – and there is no problem seeking out a natural sleeping aid like weed to support this important part of your life. So what happens when you don’t get your seven hours of sleep?
Little Sleep Can Lead to Weight Increase
Through several studies, there have been connections made between individuals with high BMIs weight and a lack of sleep. Those with lower BMI tend to rest easier and therefore experience the benefits of a good sleep.
Studies have also attributed the lack of sleep can lead to obesity – not only in adults but children as well. This connection has also led to further contributing factors such as stress levels, general motivation to exercise and hormonal imbalances.
