Does CBD affect mood?
Particularly praised for its positive unwinding effects, CBD has quickly become hugely popular within the wellness sphere. CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis, so it won’t get you high! Instead it is often mixed with carrier oils such as MCT oil from coconuts, made into capsules or used in a water soluble format in CBD drinks and may help you to feel more like yourself!
Another important factor that affects our mood is sleep, a bad night’s sleep can leave you in a pretty negative frame of mind. Especially over the last year, where 7 out of 10 people had the most stressful year of their lives (TRIP Sleep Study March 2021), it seems the UK slept worse than ever. In TRIP’s recent survey, it was found that 85% of respondents revealed that lockdown negatively impacted their sleeping patterns and 70% claimed it was their worst year of sleep ever.
CBD may help to you to find calm before bed, with many consumers using CBD oils every night ahead of going to sleep. Better sleep might mean a better mood the following morning!
