Sleep relief refers to any type of medication, treatment, or technique that helps you sleep. If you struggle with insomnia — a sleep disorder that makes falling or staying asleep difficult — you may benefit from sleep aids.
At his office, Dr. Hopkins offers Reliviance® cannabidiol, or CBD, drops to promote restful sleep. These powerful drops may help you fall asleep quickly and stay asleep throughout the night.
Marijuana has two main components: CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While THC promotes euphoric feelings that give marijuana users a “high” feeling, CBD doesn’t use this part of the plant.
Instead, Reliviance CBD products exclusively contain cannabidiol. Studies show that CBD carries many anti-inflammatory, muscle-relaxing, and stress-relief properties on its own. If stress, chronic pain, or muscle tension prevents you from getting a restorative night’s sleep, CBD may act as a powerful sleep aid without the side effects that accompany marijuana.
Insomnia affects everybody differently. While some individuals may spend hours trying to fall asleep, others may only experience middle-of-the-night disruptions.
Prescription sleep aids, such as zolpidem (Ambien®), sedate the brain to encourage sleep. While these medications may help you sleep through the night, side effects such as grogginess and morning headaches can counteract any benefits you experience.
CBD drops don’t carry the same side effects. Hopkins MD naturally sources plant-based terpenes to formulate Reliviance CBD drops. Terpenes are natural compounds that may help promote restful sleep.
By relieving anxiety and chronic pain, CBD may also help alleviate the underlying cause of insomnia, which may help you feel more refreshed and rested when you wake up in the morning.
Depending on the cause of your insomnia, Dr. Hopkins may recommend behavioral health coaching at his office. Behavioral health coaching addresses obstacles in your behavior patterns that may prevent you from achieving restful sleep. In addition, he may recommend changes in lifestyle habits such as:
If you have a chronic pain condition that interferes with your sleep quality, Dr. Hopkins can also recommend a topical Reliviance CBD ointment to reduce inflammation.
