In today's fast-paced world, it's rare to hear someone say they "sleep like a baby." Stress from work, financial worries, and personal responsibilities can make it difficult to unwind. What's more, excessive screen time before bed messes with our body's natural sleep rhythms. And if that weren't enough, irregular schedules, noise, discomfort, lifestyle habits, medical conditions, and aging can all pile on to make a good night's sleep seem even more elusive.

Science shows that sleep may be one of the most significant factors that affects our health.

Getting good sleep provides a wide range of benefits for the body, including:

  1. Enhanced Cognitive Function: Quality sleep supports various cognitive functions such as concentration, productivity, problem-solving, and memory retention. It helps the brain process information effectively and promotes optimal cognitive performance.
  2. Improved Mood and Emotional Well-being: Adequate sleep is essential for emotional regulation and mental health. It can help stabilize mood, reduce irritability and stress, and enhance overall emotional resilience.
  3. Boosted Immune Function: Sleep plays a vital role in maintaining a robust immune system. It supports the production of cytokines, antibodies, and other immune cells, helping the body defend against infections and illnesses.
  4. Optimized Metabolic Health: Good sleep habits are linked to better metabolic health, including improved insulin sensitivity, glucose regulation, and appetite control. Adequate sleep can help prevent weight gain, reduce the risk of obesity, and lower the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes.
  5. Heart Health: Quality sleep contributes to cardiovascular health by helping regulate blood pressure, heart rate, and inflammation levels. Adequate sleep is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions.
  6. Enhanced Physical Performance and Recovery: Optimal sleep supports physical performance, coordination, and reaction times. It also plays a crucial role in muscle repair, growth, and recovery after exercise or physical activity.
  7. Improved Stress Management: Adequate sleep helps the body recover from daily stressors and promotes relaxation. It can lower cortisol levels, the body's primary stress hormone, leading to better stress management and overall well-being.
  8. Healthy Aging: Quality sleep is essential for cellular repair, regeneration, and longevity. It supports the body's natural processes of repair and renewal, helping to maintain healthy aging and reducing the risk of age-related diseases.

Clearly, sleep matters.

So, what can help to support a good night’s sleep?

At 180 Pure, we have formulated two different Gummies that support and encourage a healthy nights sleep. Generally, people who have trouble sleeping break down into two groups:

  1. People who have a hard time FALLING asleep
  2. People who have a hard time STAYING asleep.

In Part 1 of our SLEEP BLOG, we’ll focus on Group 1 – people who have a hard time FALLING asleep.

Here’s the basic science behind how CBD work with sleep:

CBD's potential to improve sleep is attributed to its interaction with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) and its influence on various physiological processes, including:


  • Regulation of the ECS: The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions, including sleep-wake cycles. CBD interacts with the ECS by influencing cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2 receptors), enzymes, and endocannabinoids. By modulating the ECS, CBD may help regulate sleep patterns.*


  • Anxiolytic Effects: CBD is known for its potential anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) properties. Anxiety and stress can interfere with sleep by making it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep. By reducing anxiety levels, CBD may promote relaxation and make it easier to drift off to sleep.*


  • Reduction of Nighttime Wakefulness: CBD may help reduce instances of waking up during the night. By promoting relaxation and potentially regulating sleep cycles, CBD might contribute to longer periods of uninterrupted sleep.*


  • REM Sleep Regulation: CBD has been found to affect the duration and quality of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, the stage of sleep associated with dreaming. Some studies suggest that CBD may increase REM sleep duration, which could lead to more restful sleep.*
