Spring Forward into Better Sleep* with CBD for Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time is when we bid farewell to the winter season and welcome the warmer embrace of spring. This biannual occurrence was first started to maximize daylight and energy during the farming season. Today, this notable date brings both excitement for the emergence of spring, along with potential disruptions to our sleep routines. 

As we spring forward an hour for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 10th 2024, don’t let this seasonal shift interfere with your sleep routine and cycle! Luckily, the natural and calming properties of CBG, CBN, and CBD can each be a valuable tool in ensuring a smooth transition during this change.

Let’s explore the depths of these powerful cannabinoids for wellness and learn some best practices for preparing for Daylight Saving Time.

The History of Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time (DST) in March marks the beginning of longer days and shorter nights. This event occurs twice a year, following the changing of the seasons:

  • DST in March means we all spring forward one hour
  • DST in November means we all fall back one hour

The history of Daylight Saving Time traces back to the idea of maximizing daylight and conserving energy. The modern iteration of Daylight Saving Time was standardized in the United States in 1966 with the passage of the Uniform Time Act. This ensures a consistent approach to time changes across the nation. 

Over the years, the start and end dates of either springing an hour forward or behind have been adjusted. Today – many regions around the world participate in this biannual clock adjustment to make the most of daylight during the warmer months.

While it’s a harbinger of brighter evenings and the blossoms of spring, it can also throw our internal clocks off balance. Understanding the significance of this seasonal shift in time is crucial for those looking to maintain a healthier, well-rested lifestyle balance. 

Embracing Healthy Sleep Habits

Adjusting our schedules to the time change means prioritizing and managing healthy sleep habits. As you can imagine, consistent and quality sleep is essential for our physical and mental well-being. 

Consider these few key factors to help you establish a smoother transition during Daylight Saving Time. 

Stay active! 

Maintain a moderate amount of activity and physical fitness throughout the day for more energy in your daily routine. Getting in at least 30 minutes of physical fitness each day can help regulate your body’s energy and contribute to a better sleep schedule. 

Create a cozy sleep environment!

Try to limit the amount of screen time (phones, tablets, television) before bed, as some studies suggest blue light and electronics impact our sleep patterns. Be sure to dedicate your sleep environment to sleeping and sleeping only! 

Maintain a Clear Bedtime Routine

We all know that our weekly or daily schedules get out of whack from time to time. The more consistent your bedtime routine is, the better your sleep schedule and cycle will follow! Experts recommend getting from 7-9 hours of sleep each night, any less can potentially lead to burnout, exhaustion, poor sleep quality, and mental health. 

For most of us, sleep issues come from those who often have trouble staying asleep or falling asleep at night. You can enhance your bedtime routine by practicing mindful meditation or deep breathing to put your mind and body into a more relaxed state before heading to bed.

CBD: A Natural Way to Help Promote a Healthy Sleep Cycle*

If you’re seeking additional, natural support during Daylight Saving Time, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in hemp plants that has shown promising potential to promote relaxation and help quiet the mind before bed.

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and its network of receptors to influence various systems within our body. When ingested, this cannabinoid plays a crucial role in regulating various physiological processes. 

When CBD binds with receptors in our ECS, it sends signals throughout the body that promote a better sense of calm, balance, and relaxation, (which is all a part of maintaining homeostasis in our bodies). The complex interaction between CBD and our bodies is a delicate one that many scientists and researchers continue to discover. 

Unlocking the Power of Cannabinoids 

Today’s findings and science behind hemp-based wellness have suggested that CBD is not the only cannabinoid known to help support a restful night. 

The Relaxing Powers of CBN 

In addition to CBD, cannabinoids like Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabigerol (CBG) have shown promise in providing deep relaxation and calm needed for sleep*.

CBN is a natural yet less-known cannabinoid in hemp favored for its soothing properties. Unlike THC, it is only minimally psychoactive and will not produce a “high” , making it an excellent recommendation for those struggling to quiet their mind and body at night. CBN interacts with the ECS to signal a more enhanced feeling of calm and sedation. Derived from our organic hemp grown in Vermont, CBN has made its debut in Upstate Elevator’s line of CBN & CBD products for sleep* support.

Exploring the Potential of CBG

On the other hand, CBG is another cannabinoid derived from hemp that interacts with ECS receptors in the brain to influence the sleep-wake cycle.

Entirely non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBG binds to receptors in the ECS directly, especially those in the nervous system.  It is believed that CBG works by inhibiting the reuptake of the neurotransmitter anandamide, allowing it to stay in the system longer and potentially contributing to better homeostasis.

While much of CBG is still undiscovered, general information has noted the potential of this cannabinoid to help clear the mind and calm the body.

No matter what is keeping you up at night, these three cannabinoids are here to boost your bedtime routine.
