The National Institutes of Health released a study that "revealed very high rates of clinically significant insomnia along with more stress, anxiety, and depression since the Covid-19 pandemic." All-natural CBD from hemp can enhance the serotonin receptors. Low serotonin levels are commonly associated with people who have depression and anxiety. Anxiety is a key factor behind insomnia. I hope my CBD can help you get a good night's sleep.
