Sleep is a natural routine that our bodies need daily to keep our minds and bodies healthy.
As night time comes around, we begin to tire as our bodies need to rest. This can be quite different for everybody.
Usually a recommended 8 hours per night is a normal healthy period of time to sleep. However, different factors can affect the time we are asleep. As we get older it is usual to need less sleep. Some children also need less sleep when they are young, but some can sleep way over 8 hours.
Our sleep patterns can be affected by diet, stress, anxiety or illness, and many other factors. These factors can make us sleep longer than is normal, or they can deprive us of much needed rest.
Knowing our sleep routine is key to health. When sleep patterns are not consistent, we can usually identify the cause, i.e. overwork, stress, anxiety, etc.
Sleep deprivation can be a very debilitating condition. Brought on by different factors, it can affect mental and physical health. Going for long periods without sleep can affect the brain and cause us to hallucinate.
There are many prescription drugs available to induce sleep. There are also many homeopathic remedies that can have the desired affect to make one sleepy.
CBD flowers and oils are another great supplement to aid our sleep. CBD (cannabidiol) is non-psychoactive, so will not give you a feeling of being 'high', unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Although both compounds are derived from the hemp plant, their effects are totally different.
