CBD is becoming increasingly popular with more & more people incorporating it into their daily routines. CBD (Cannabidiol), unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), is not psychoactive. This quality makes CBD an attractive option for those who are looking to improve their sleep, reduce their anxiety, good pain management or enhance their recovery after exercise. All this without causing harm to the mental health of the person. 

It is becoming incredibly popular in the field of health & well-being with many studies confirming its beneficial purposes. Here are some of the main benefits of CBD, all backed up by scientific evidence.

Sleep & anxiety management

There is evidence that CBD has a calming effect on the central nervous system. Interest in CBD as a treatment for a wide range of disorders has increased dramatically. 

A scientific experiment was carried out in which monthly documentation of anxiety cases and sleep quality data were collected in 102 adults. During the study, sleep and anxiety were evaluated using proven agents and after treatment of the same symptoms with CBD. The results of this experiment were impressive, backed up by constant feedback from consumers who are sleeping better than ever since taking CBD. CBD Performance offer a fantastic Night Spray Oil that is designed to be taken before bed and has become a nighttime essential.
