Sleep is such an important part of our everyday lives. Without getting the proper amount of sleep, it becomes harder to focus on work, make decisions, and it can even have negative impacts on your diet and overall health.
A new national survey from U.S. News & World Report’s 360 Reviews finds Americans’ poor sleep hygiene habits and their worries about the state of the U.S. are negatively impacting their quality of sleep. The survey revealed that while a majority of Americans (72%) say they follow a bedtime routine, one-in-three (36%) report rarely or never waking up feeling rested. Some factors that contribute to poor sleep quality include eating too much before bed (33%), falling asleep with the TV on (33%), and worrying about gun violence in the U.S. (27%).
Consumers Turning to Cannabis as a Sleep Aid
Cannabis is widely used as a sleep aid for both medical and recreational users. According to the Sleep Foundation, it is believed that the sleep-promoting effects of cannabinoids are due to their interactions with cannabinoid receptors in the brain. When cannabinoids bind to these receptors, they send messages to increase levels of sleep-promoting adenosine levels and suppress the brain’s arousal system. Together, these effects may help cannabis users feel sedated or sleepy.
