We Brits might be trading our fluffy jumpers, gloves and heated blankets for shorts, t-shirts and questionable sock-sandal combinations but, for many of us, the warmer nights can make getting to sleep a battle.
Research carried out by The Sleep Council found that more than half of people in the UK say the summer heat stops them from getting to sleep.
Further studies back up this theory, with the American National Sleep Foundation revealing that anything higher than 18.3 degrees can lead to difficulty getting to sleep and sleeping long enough to feel well rested.
But research into CBD (Cannabidiol) has shown that it can help with stress and anxiety relief and promote better sleep.
“CBD works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, helping to reduce the effects of anxiety and promote relaxation, which can lead to a night of restful sleep,” explains e-liquid testing specialist Eos Scientific.
“For the sleepless masses who might not want to resort to strong, addictive prescription medications, CBD could well be the solution they’re looking for to offset the discomfort that comes with the warmer evenings in summer, helping them to get a good night’s sleep.”
“The British public is simply not getting enough quality sleep and it’s easy to see why,” says Eos Scientific CEO Simon Manthorpe.
“Research shows that searches using the term ‘sleep aid’ have increased exponentially over the past decade and with research showing that over a quarter of Brits rank getting enough sleep as their greatest health ambition, it’s no surprise that the market for sleepy teas, better mattresses, meditation apps and more have grown to meet this demand.
“CBD oil is a fairly new addition to this market and yet the preliminary research has shown it is incredibly effective at promoting better sleep.
“With so many millions of Brits struggling to get good quality sleep, CBD oil looks to be ideal for anybody who does not want to resort to prescription sleep medication.”
