Research & Studies: CBD for Sleep Disorders
Your pet may be suffering from insomnia, insufficient sleep or other sleep disorders. CBD has been mistakenly labeled as sedating but the truth is that in small doses, Cannabidiol can be mildly alerting. CBD affects the same cannabinoid receptors as caffeine. But with many patients reporting that ingesting bigger doses before bed has resulted in a better night’s sleep. Here is a list of research and studies on CBD and it’s potential use for treating Sleep Disorders.
CBD for Sleep Disorders:
- Cannabidiol, a constituent of Cannabis sativa, modulates sleep in rats.
- Effectiveness of Cannabidiol Oil for Pediatric Anxiety and Insomnia as Part of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Case Report.
- Endocannabinoid Signaling Regulates Sleep Stability.
- Endocannabinoid modulation of cortical up-states and NREM sleep.
- Effects of acute systemic administration of cannabidiol on sleep-wake cycle in rats.
- The nonpsychoactive Cannabis constituent cannabidiol is a wake-inducing agent.
IMPORTANT: Most of these studies involve cannabinoid molecules, experimental animals, test tubes, and sometimes human cell-lined studies. It’s important to understand that the Endocannabinoid System exists in all mammals including dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, and humans. CBD affects us in the same way that it affects our pets.
