Sleep Disorders

Insomnia is a major heath problem. In the United States, some 70 million people suffer from insomnia, insufficient sleep or other sleep disorders.

Hemp Extract has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. Hemp Extract increases overall sleep time and improves insomnia. It has also has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain.

Hemp Extract not only makes falling asleep easier, it also influences the sleep cycle. Sleep is divided into multiple cycles with different phases. Hemp Extract increases the third phase, which is the phase of deep sleep.

In addition, Hemp Extract decreases the duration of REM sleep, which is a phase of light sleep in which dreaming occurs. By reducing REM sleep, people dream less, memory is improved, and symptoms of depression are decreased.

In smaller doses, Hemp Extract can stimulate alertness and reduce daytime sleepiness, which is important for daytime performance and for the strength and consistency of the sleep-wake cycle.

Hemp Extract may help reduce REM behavior disorder in people with Parkinson’s disease. REM behavior disorder is a condition that causes people to act out physically during dreaming and REM sleep.

Typically, during REM, the body is largely paralyzed. In REM behavior disorder, this paralysis doesn’t occur, leaving people free to move — which can lead to disruptive sleep and to possibly injuring themselves or their sleeping partners.

Growing scientific literature alerts us to the many health consequences from lack of deep, restful sleep. Lack of sleep also impairs the ability to function optimally on a daily basis. A safe solution such as Hemp Extract offers relief for a sleep-deprived society.
