How CBD Can Help With Jetlag - What to Know



When you're jetlagged, you might feel symptoms like aching muscles [1], nausea [2], brain fog [3], and insomnia [4]. All these symptoms are annoying and can really mess you up for a few days. This is something that you probably want to avoid, particularly if you’ve got something important to do the next day. You will want to find something to help you combat these symptoms. Actually, there is something that can treat all these symptoms at once: CBD.


Jetlag occurs when your biological clock or rhythm is disrupted. [1] Your internal symptoms are usually set to the cycles of the world, helping you sleep at night and stay up during the day. This cycle is crucial for cell health, brain wave regulation, core body temperature, and many other bodily rhythms.


Traveling will mess your rhythm up ever so slightly. Jetlag can cause irritability, constipation, fatigue, less focus, indigestion, and a loss of appetite. [2] The biggest issue people with jet lag suffer from is poor sleep quality. [4] These symptoms are due to the conditions caused by traveling which are the reasons for sore, cramped limbs, dehydration, lack of sleep, and time spent in an environment that is low in oxygen.


How can I prevent it?

You can minimize or completely prevent jet lag. It is wise to try to avoid any caffeine or other stimulants during or before your trip. Trying to adjust your sleeping schedule to match your destination ahead of time can also help a lot. After arriving at your destination, try to spend time in the sun when it's out so that your body will adjust to a new routine. Get outdoors!


CBD For Jetlag

CBD is known for helping all the symptoms listed previously. It basically addresses all the things that you would feel with jetlag. This compound has been used to treat so many illnesses and diseases and is known to be able to help with many different kinds of symptoms. Here are the symptoms that CBD can especially help you with:


// Insomnia

CBD is increasingly being used to treat patients with insomnia due to its calming effects and ability to reduce anxiety. [5] When people aren’t able to sleep normally, some resort to sleeping medications, which can have some serious side effects. Others will take melatonin, which doesn't work for everyone. Those who take it for too long can also form a tolerance, making it ineffective. If you're out of options, maybe it's time to try CBD. CBD will not only improve your sleep and help you regain your body's natural rhythm, but it will help you sleep more deeply so that you can wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. This will make you feel more alert and awake in the morning, returning your focus and mental health to you.


// Irritability

Jetlag can be anxiety-inducing for some people. The irritability that comes with jet lag can really affect your day. CBD will help regulate the dopamine and serotonin levels in your brain, allowing you to stay calm. [6]


// Cognitive Function

If you're traveling for work, you certainly don’t want to have to deal with the stress of jet lag as well. If you want to get your cognitive ability back, CBD may be able to help. Because it is known to reduce inflammation [7], it will be able to help reduce the effects of jetlag on your brain, just as much as it does on your physical body.
