As much as 80% of American adults struggle to fall asleep at least one night each week. Unfortunately, many current “solutions”, including over the counter aids, aren’t always effective and are often high risk. Interestingly, Chinese medical documents dating as far back to 1200 A.D. describe the ability of cannabis to induce sleep. It’s no wonder then that today many look to CBD, a compound found in hemp that doesn’t cause a high, for sleep relief.


Recent studies support this course of action: in a 2019 study published in the Permanente Journal, 66% of study participants (all adults) saw sleep scores improve after being given a daily 25 mg dose of CBD.


So how does CBD do it?


To start, because CBD reduces both pain and anxiety, sleep in turn also becomes easier.


More specifically: in every human body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a role in regulating mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and sleep. ECS receptors (tiny proteins attached to your cells) receive chemical signals and help cells correctly respond to these signals. CBD influences these ECS receptor and therefore also influences each function regulated by the endocannabinoid system. Specifically, CBD interacts with ECS receptors that affect the body’s sleep/wake cycle (known as circadian rhythm). The result is sounder sleep.


Not only does better sleep improve your mood and help you feel better, quality rest is also critical for the body to build muscle. REM sleep (a sleep phase encouraged by CBD) sees the body’s lowest levels of naturally occurring cortisol and therefore higher levels of protein synthesis. Translation: CBD encourages the ideal conditions for healthy muscle growth. It’s a win-win.




Have you come across the term “entourage effect” as you learn more about CBD? Let’s take a second to break down the term and why it’s important.


We have discussed already that the ECS system helps regulate mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and sleep. Unfortunately, the wear and tear of every day life can impact the body’s production of endocannabinoids. Aging, unhealthy eating, high stress environments, and toxins such as pesticides can each lower endocannabinoid production.


As a result, doctors recommend exercise, healthy eating, and non-toxic products to help boost your production of the critical component of the ECS system. In addition to the steps listed, full spectrum hemp contains a mixture of plant compounds that amplify the effects of CBD: a synergistic relationship known as the entourage effect. So, to be sure to get the most out of any CBD products, be sure to look for those using broad spectrum hemp.


Because KILL CLIFF hemp-derived CBD products use broad spectrum hemp extract, you can experience the full entourage effect as easily as enjoying a delicious drink. Know that you know, why ever settle for a CBD isolate product?
