How it Helps You Sleep Better (UK Edition)

How it Helps You Sleep Better (UK Edition)

Getting a good night’s sleep can be tough – racing minds after a busy day and the anxiety of daily life can make it tough for even the best sleepers to get to sleep and stay asleep. 

Does this sound like you? If it does, you would normally go see your doctor and get a prescription for sleeping pills. But many, looking for a natural alternative, have turned to it, an ingredient in plant, to help fight their insomnia – and they find it works as well, if not better, than behind the counter options. 

What’s it?

The plant produces over 100 cannabinoid molecules that interact with the Endocannabinoid System in humans and other animals. The two most studied molecules produced. The one compound is non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t get you high. Recently the World Health Organization described as safe to use.
 
It is available in many different forms. We recommend our Fog capsules because they’re consistently dosed so you know what you’re getting every time.

Unlike medicinal and recreational plant, it is legal throughout the UK and can be purchased everywhere from local fashion boutiques to pharmacies. 

Why take it?

It has a number of medicinal applications that we’re only starting to understand. Mainly, every body has an Endocannabinoid system that interacts with all of your body’s core functions. Per existing research it can trigger different receptors in your Endocannabinoid System to help treat a range of conditions – including anxiety, sleep, inflammation and many others. 

Is it Safe to Take?

Yes. If you’re not currently taking other medications you don’t have anything to worry about. If you are taking other medications, then you should talk to your regular treating doctor before trying.

A recent report by the World Health Organisation concluded: “the evidence from well-controlled human experimental research indicates that it is not associated with abuse potential. At present no public health problems (e.g. driving under the influence of drugs cases, comorbidities) have been associated with the use of pure.”

A review of current literature describes the safety profile of it as “in comparison with other drugs, used for the treatment of medical conditions, it has a better side effect profile”.

How does it help you sleep?

This study, published in the Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, found that it can be helpful in reducing anxiety, a major reason why so many of us struggle to get to sleep and stay asleep. According to this research, adding it to your nightly routine could promote the relaxation you need prior to sleep and make it easier to get a good night’s rest.  

Some other research indicates that it may directly affect sleep by interacting wth receptors in your Endocannabinoid System that govern your daily sleep/awake cycle, according to this 2017 survey on cannabinoids. More research needs to be done on this but initial results are highly promising. 

That’s one of the reasons why researchers are running a clinical trial at a hospital in Massachusetts where researchers are studying to see if it does in fact help promote sleep. The results of this trial should inform our understanding on why so many people find it helpful in promoting a good night’s sleep. 

What it should you take?

I personally use Fog’s Clarity soft gels. I like that they’re dosed consistently and easy to take before bed. I keep a bottle on my nightstand so I remember to take them nightly. My preferred dose is 2 capsules (50mg) and usually start to get sleepy in 30 minutes. 















But before you purchase any product, make sure to check that:
  • They make independent testing of their product available to consumers
  • Contain only natural ingredients
  • Do not possess any THC
  • Are compliant with UK recommendations
Research is crucial to finding the best on the market. I love using it to help with my sleeping issues and don’t know what I’d do without it. Give it a try and let us know how it goes!
