1. Perfecting Your Bedtime Routine

 

Sleep hygiene involves the specific habits and environmental factors that directly impact sleep quality. These particular tips can be combined with general health and wellness guidance to promote the best sleep possible. 

After exploring overall health and wellness, you’ll learn about sleep hygiene and why it is so important. You’ll discover easy but effective sleep hygiene tips for getting better sleep. This includes perfecting your night skincare routine with our Extra Care Formula and furthermore, the research behind using CBD for sleep, along with practical tips for using our Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD. Finally, customer reviews will help you find out what you’ve been missing. 

2. Optimizing Health and Wellness

 

When it comes to improving your night routine, you must consider your daily activities and habits. Numerous aspects of healthy living play a critical role in sleep quality. Getting your day done right can help ensure you’re ready for your bedtime routine. Here are the most essential factors to consider.

Getting your day done right can help ensure you’re ready for your bedtime routine.

2.1 Exercise

It is likely unsurprising to see this tip suggested first. There is no better way to fatigue your muscles and promote high-quality sleep than to get sufficient exercise. You do not need to go to the gym every day. An evening walk may suffice. The point is to increase your daily movement and activity however you choose to do so.

2.2 Drink Enough Water

You’ve heard this tip plenty of times before. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it has widespread implications. Getting enough water and drinking it earlier in the day can help you stay hydrated while avoiding excessive nighttime bathroom visits. Consider drinking a full glass of water shortly after you awaken. 

2.3 Manage Stress Levels

Getting daily activity is essential for managing stress and improving your nightly routine. There are so many stressors that can impact us each day, both seen and unseen. Consider replacing some TV time with more active restful activities. Spending ten minutes letting your mind wander while breathing deeply will likely relax you far more intensely than an hour of television. Using our Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD can help you alleviate stress in the critical hours before bed.

Deep breathing and CBD Sleep Formula will help alleviate stress in the critical hours before bed.

2.4 Manage Emotions

Give yourself time to experience your emotions and process them. Provide time to process and reduce your emotions. Avoid heading to bed while feeling stressed, angry, nervous, or upset. Consider fitting meditation, journaling, or self-reflection time into your daily schedule. 

After getting your daytime done right, it is time to focus on your nighttime routine. Optimizing your nightly routine can create lasting habits that enhance your sleep quality and duration. “Sleep hygiene” is the scientific term used to describe the personal and environmental factors that can maximize the efficiency of your night routine. 

3. Sleep Hygiene

 

Sleep hygiene involves all the behaviors, sleep-related factors, and environmental conditions that impact sleep quality. Improving your sleep hygiene can enhance your sleep quality. By creating a bedtime routine that addresses these factors, you can increase your chance of success. [1]

Create a bedtime routine that improves your sleep hygiene.

Now:

Based on research, results show that sleep hygiene is strongly related to sleep quality. Furthermore, sleep hygiene is modestly related to subjective levels of daytime sleepiness. In other words, sleep hygiene helps you get better sleep quality and likely helps you feel less tired throughout the day. [2]

3.1 Substance Pitfalls

Numerous different substances can impair your sleep quality. Depending on you individually, going to bed with a full stomach can either support or inhibit sleep. More broadly, the evidence strongly supports avoiding tobacco, alcohol, and caffeine within four hours of heading to sleep. On the other hand, staying hydrated is important, and going to bed dehydrated impairs good sleep. [2]

3.2 Single-Purpose Usage

Our brains are capable of creating direct associations that impact all levels of life. For example, if you watch TV or play on your phone in bed, your brain will associate these activities with your bed. This logic leads to the suggestion of reserving your bed and bedroom for their intended uses. This means only using your bedroom when it is bedtime or when getting dressed for your day. 

Use your bedroom only when it is bedtime or when getting dressed for your day.

You might be wondering:

Avoid using your bed for any activity other than sleep or sex. That said, if you must do something in bed to calm yourself, go with reading or journaling instead of social media and television. Reducing the ambient noise in your room can help improve your sleep quality. Consider thicker curtains or improving window seals. [2]

3.3 Avoid Long Naps

Naps can be great for some people and awful for others. Pay close attention to how your naps impact subsequent nights of sleep. In general, it is better not to nap as far as sleep hygiene is concerned. That said, naps can be a powerful tool when used correctly. Avoid naps longer than two hours, however, if you do take them. [2] 

3.4 Consistency

As best you can, attempt to create a solid sleep schedule. This includes both your bedtime and when you wake. While not everyone can make this work practically, consistency should be the goal. Whenever possible, go to bed at a consistent time of day and wake up at the same time. The same goes for using CBD products, where consistency gets results. [2]

Using CBD products consistently and following a regular sleep schedule gets results.

3.5 Creating Comfort

Make your bed and bedroom as comfortable as possible. This may include buying new sheets or pillows. Ensure that your bed dressings match the climate and conditions around you. Use a lighter blanket in the summer and a heavier one in the winter. In general, a cooler bedroom will enhance your night routine.

Want to know the best part?

Clinical research has shown that improving sleep hygiene can be effective in alleviating insomnia. Gaining knowledge of sleep hygiene tips leads to better sleep practices. The end result is improved sleep quality and resistance to disturbances. [3]

Once you get all these factors under control, you can fine-tune your night routine to ensure you get the best sleep possible. One way to take your bedtime routine to a whole new level is by including our SOL Extra Care Cream and Sleep Formula. Before describing how to tailor your dose and timing to your needs, let’s explore the research behind using CBD for sleep.

Fine-tune your night routine to ensure you get the best sleep possible.

4. CBD Oil and Sleep

 

While the evidence base is not massive, there are dozens of studies exploring the impacts of CBD on sleep. Drawing from research on animals and human studies, the utility of CBD will be illuminated. 

4.1 Animal Studies on CBD and Sleep

Animal studies have demonstrated that CBD impacts regions of the brain associated with waking and alertness, such as the hypothalamus. And so, CBD has been suggested for use during the day to reduce daytime fatigue. [4] 

Furthermore, CBD is able to elicit numerous central nervous system (CNS)-related effects, including the sleep-wake cycle we all experience. This action is complex and does not appear related to the direct binding of CBD with CB1 cannabinoid receptors. [4]

CBD impacts regions of the brain associated with waking and alertness.

4.2 Human Trials

A review of studies exploring cannabinoids and sleep in humans provided a summary of results up to the year 2014. Overall, the researchers reported that there is preliminary evidence to support the therapeutic potential of CBD for those suffering from insomnia. Furthermore, CBD showed broad promise around REM sleep issues and daytime sleepiness. [5]

A more recent study found that in humans, CBD appears to have an overall calming effect on the CNS. One study followed 103 adult patients and found improvement of sleep and anxiety-related symptoms from using CBD. The attenuation of anxiety may have improved sleep quality directly and indirectly. These effects were shown to be maintained over the course of the trial. [6]

But here’s the kicker:

With regard to sleep, researchers found considerable improvement in the first month of treatment. After that point, there were fluctuations noted in the degree of improvement. [6]

For this reason, CBD alone is not suggested as a solution for your sleep problems. This is why we have spent much time exploring daily habits and sleep hygiene. CBD may offer a burst of improvement and help maintain gains, but it will not solve all your problems by itself. 

CBD oil along with the daily habits and good sleep hygiene can be a solution for your sleep problems.

This is crazy:

In another study, researchers found that CBD does not interfere with healthy volunteers’ natural sleep cycles. In other words, while THC is known to impact our normal sleep architecture, CBD does not. This is a positive sign demonstrating how CBD does not impact the normal sleep cycle progression and timing. [7]

Not only were these healthy participants given CBD, but they were also provided very large doses. In fact, they received 300 mg of CBD. The researchers compared this group to a control group given a placebo (an inactive substance compared against the active substance). The difference in results between the two groups supported claims that CBD does not impede the sleep cycle. [7]

5. The Benefits of Our Advanced Sleep Formula CBD

 

Based on the research above and our customer reviews, there are many indications that CBD can help you improve your sleep quality. Here are a few of the major benefits of using CBD for your nightly routine

We created our CBD Sleep Formula for the singular goal of helping you get better sleep. This easy-to-use formula combines CBD with five other powerful ingredients for promoting proper rest.

Love the new formula!

"I have been struggling with sleep issues for years now and have tried over a dozen different products with little or no help at all. From the first night of taking this sleep formula, I fell asleep within a few minutes (usually it takes me almost an hour to fall asleep). The first night I still woke up a few times but after about a week I sleep through the night almost every night now. I cannot thank you enough for making this amazing product. You got a customer for life :-)"

— Jennifer O., Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD

WATCH: Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD

5.1 What Makes Our Sleep Formula So Special?

Our Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD is the only product out there that combines six powerful nutrients into one amazing package. The goal is to help you get to sleep and stay asleep. The selection of ingredients was perfected for this singular goal. Here are the ingredients inside:

5.2 GABA

GABA is shorthand for gamma-Aminobutyric acid, the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in our brains. Its primary role is reducing the excitability of neurons throughout our nervous system. GABA helps to reduce stress, increase relaxation, and alleviate discomfort. 

5.3 5-HTP

Amino acid 5-Hydroxytryptophan, or 5-HTP, leads to the production of more GABA. It also plays a role in managing serotonin levels in our brain, critical for positive moods. We included this ingredient to help attenuate anxiety and increase relaxation. 

5.4 Passionflower

Passionflower is another ingredient designed to increase our critical GABA levels. Passiflora is a group of flowering plants found in Mexico and South America. This ingredient has been researched and shown to act as a powerful sleep aid. 

Advanced Sleep Formula with CBD: 6 Powerful Nutrients in 1 Amazing Package

5.5 Valerian Root

Valerian is a perennial flower native to Europe and Asia. The extraction of valerian root produces a compound capable of producing sedation and relaxation by addressing multiple layers of your nervous system. These ingredients were selected to ensure nothing stands in the way of a good night’s rest. 

5.6 Melatonin

You’ve likely heard about melatonin already because it is well-known for helping people get better sleep. Melatonin is a sleep hormone naturally produced by our nervous system prior to falling asleep. A lack of this critical nutrient impairs sleep quality, but you won’t need to worry about that when you use our Advanced Sleep Formula. 

5.7 Cannabidiol

Finally, we packed this sleep formula with high-quality CBD and tested it to ensure potency and purity.

The star ingredient in our perfectly formulated sleep formula, CBD helps you to get settled and sleep like a baby. Our customer reviews show how helpful this formula can be for you. (Click to Tweet)

CBD helps you sleep through the night.

Better sleep

"Even though I always felt I slept quite well through the night I most often still didn't really want to crawl out of bed most mornings. I believe the new sleep formula must be giving me more quality sleep because I don't mind getting up in the morning since taking it for several days now. Thank you, Thank you SOL."

— Mary, Advanced Sleep Formula With CBD 1-Pack

6. Fitting SOL Sleep Formula into Your Night Skincare Routine

We have done the hard work creating this formula, and all you need to do is give it a try. You can easily experiment with dosage and timing to find optimal results. Find out more below. 

6.1 Dosage

For those who are new to CBD, start with a small amount and slowly increase it over several days. The amount of CBD you may need to improve your sleep can vary. Some people do better with less while others require more. A good estimate for improving sleep would be to start with a dose of one full dropper of our Sleep Formula, which works out to 5 mg of CBD. Assess the results and adjust as needed.
