Do you feel like it’s been a long time since you had a fulfilling night of sleep? The first global pandemic since 1918 has changed dramatically the way we live, work, and play. Have you heard of Coronasomnia?
Those stressful changes have impacted the quality of our sleep. Ask any parent who has been homeschooling kids for more than a year or someone who tragically lost a loved one to COVID-19.
It’s no surprise that insomnia is now a quickly growing problem among American adults, even for those who have never had issues getting deep, restorative sleep on which our immune systems rely. Sleep is invaluable to staying healthy, not a luxury but a necessity, and as a result of the pandemic, most Americans are simply sleep-deprived.
The rise in cases of chronic insomnia has been so significant during the pandemic that it has earned a name: Coronasomnia. That is, insomnia caused by pandemic-related stress. While vaccines are providing hope for an end to the crisis, its impact on our collective health will likely remain for months to years from now.
However, experts have identified full-spectrum, clinical-grade CBD as a natural, holistic solution that can help address coronasomnia.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine (part of the National Institutes of Health) categorized Dr. Morin’s study as urgent and placed it into the Elsevier, Public Health Emergency Collection. This designation is reserved for information that may require immediate attention by both the U.S. healthcare community and U.S. policymakers.
Which Aspects of the Pandemic are Causing Coronasomnia?
Everyday life has changed, and the ”new normal” for many people is very upsetting, particularly for those who have had their health and/or employment (or that of a loved one) impacted by the virus.
Arguably the health aspect most affected by the pandemic is sleep. Americans are already significantlysleep-deprived, and the pandemic has exacerbated this condition. The behavioral shifts that have created the most disruption to healthy sleep habits include:
Isolation from family and friends during shutdowns, social distancing, and working from home.
Increased childcare burdens as schools were closed, and online learning became mandatory.
Financial insecurity is caused by increased unemployment.
Food and supply insecurities caused by retail shortages.
Increased eating and weight gain, coupled with lower fitness activity levels.
Increased consumption of alcohol and controlled substances to self-moderate symptoms of anxiety and depression.
The things many have been doing to help cope with pandemic stress are only making chronic coronasomnia worse.
Full-Spectrum, Clinical Grade CBD Can Help with Coronasomnia
The line between work and home life has been blurred, and in some cases, entirely erased. This loss of privacy, coupled with insufficient sleep, has led to significant burnout in adults. As such, there has never been a better time to focus on holistic wellness, boost your immune system, and protect your mental health.
How exactly can cannabidiol (CBD) help with coronasomnia? CBD can reduce anxiety and stress, promoting quality sleep. There have been many recent clinical studies that suggest high-potency CBD can help with sleep disorders, including:
Unlike other prescription and non-prescription remedies, CBD does not leave you groggy or lethargic in the morning. An appropriate dose of clinical-grade CBD will dissipate during the night, leaving you feeling rested and refreshed the next day.
Green Care Medical Offers Clinical-Grade CBD Specifically Designed for Sleep
With hundreds of CBD products touting their suitability for battling stress and insomnia, finding a truly effective, clinical-grade CBD product can be overwhelming. The American retail market is saturated with low-quality, impure products that offer little to no health value, a problem so severe that the FDA and FTC have a joint task force called Operation CBDeceit to remove fake CBD products from shelves.
Drs. Steven Salzman and George Gavrilos, pioneers in clinical cannabinoid supplementation, founded Green Care Medical, which offers the purest, highest-quality, most effective CBD on the market. Dr. Salzman has specialized in sleep and complex pain disorders for more than twenty years. Dr. Gavrilos has specialized in studying the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of cannabis and other alternative medicines since 2014.
Active Ingredients in Green Care Medical Sleep Formula
Green Care Medical’s Sleep Formula is a full-spectrum CBD oil tincture. Drops are placed under the tongue approximately thirty minutes before bedtime. Unlike other supplements or OTC (over-the-counter) remedies for sleep issues, Green Care Medical’s Sleep Formula contains natural botanicals and extracts that can help improve the quality and duration of your sleep.
Each bottle of Green Care Medical Sleep Formula CBD contains:
1500mg of clinical-grade cannabidiol
150mg of melatonin
Orange essential oil
Lavender essential oil
Chamomile essential oil
The addition of MCT oil in Green Care Medical Sleep’s Sleep Formula may help individuals with glucose management problems. Many people with diabetes, for example, experience something called the “Dawn Phenomenon.” That is when the body (after fasting while asleep) begins to release more glucose or sugar.
Consequently, the increase in blood sugar can cause sleep disruption. The Sleep Formula from Green Care Medical is also sweetened with natural Stevia. That makes the CBD ideal for people on glucose-restricted diets.
