Not only is it irritating to have to change every single clock in your home and at your office, but Daylight Savings Time comes with some added health risks as well. However, CBD oil may help some get through the most awful Monday of the year.
In the spring, which is, unfortunately, the time we lose an hour of sleep turning our clocks back, people most often experience fatigue. A Virginia Tech Transportation Institute expert says daylight saving time can cause driver fatigue and therefore, create some hazardous road conditions. If you’re driving to work earlier, that lost hour of sleep may make for an even more troubling and fatigued drive. But that’s only one of the health concerns scientists and doctors are worried about.
Doctors believe the findings could be related to circadian rhythms and that our bodies like regularity. According to a local Philidelphia CBS affiliate, that single lost hour of sleep is enough of a disruption to your body’s sleep pattern to cause risks of heart problems.
“Any time change can exacerbate drowsiness because your internal clock has not adjusted to the time change. This can lead to disruptions in sleep until your body adjusts, which can take a few days to a week,” Jeff Hickman said. Irregular sleep can also increase stress, depression, and is linked to reduced physical activity and increased daytime sleepiness or drowsiness. Hickman also offered some tips for drivers to avoid fatigue:
1. Avoid driving during rush hour and from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.
2. Get a full night’s sleep.
3. Pay attention to signs of drowsy driving.
4. Be aware of other factors impacting drowsy driving.
These are all difficult for so many to do the Monday after we set our clocks forward during daylight savings time, which universally affects most, if not all circadian rhythms. But all natural CBD (cannabidiol oil) may be helpful for this particular concern.
CBD oil is gaining in popularity because of the wide variety of minor ailments it appears to aid the body with. Insomnia or sleeping concerns are only one of those issues, but it might be worth a try to see if it can help you overcome the Monday after DST.
Our bodies are hard-wired for CBD. Cannabinoids are a diverse set of chemical compounds that bind to special receptors in the human body that make up what is known as the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system which plays many important roles in the human body. It is responsible for the physical and psychological effects of cannabis.
A growing body of research suggests CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties and antidepressant-like effects and may reduce inflammation and pain, so if any of those things are interfering with your sleep, CBD may help. A 2017 research review reported that studies on cannabis and insomnia suggest that “CBD may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia”, and that it “may hold promise for REM sleep behavior disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness.”
Other studies have found that CBD may increase overall sleep amounts. It has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain. In smaller doses, CBD stimulates alertness and reduces daytime sleepiness, which is important for daytime performance and for the strength and consistency of the sleep-wake cycle.
We recommend Organica Naturals CBD products (which are made from hemp) for their consistently high quality. -Lisa Egan, The Organic Prepper
Several studies are showing “promise” that the all-natural CBD oil could be the solution to those dangerous prescriptions and over the counter sleep medications. And don’t worry; you won’t get “high” from using CBD oil. It comes from the hemp plant as opposed to the cannabis plant and there are trace levels (under 0.3%) of the psychoactive compound THC in any CBD oil.
There are also 100% THC-free CBD oils for those who prefer to go that route.
- Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae.
- Cannabis refers to a plant family that includes hemp and marijuana (and many other plants).
- Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is used for many purposes and contains very low levels of THC. Hemp does not produce a “high.”
- Marijuana is a variety of cannabis that contains high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, or “The High Causer”), the cannabinoid most known for its psychoactive properties.
If you are searching for a natural and organic solution to the fatigue of daylight savings time, it could be worth it to give CBD oil a try!
Mac, someone really misled you with this article. I call BS on the “study”. I’ve been through Daylight Savings Time changes for my whole life without any adverse effects. I can think of many things much more inconvenient than changing time on a few clocks.
Well you have to remember some of the snowflakes are very sensitive and the extreme effort of remembering “Spring forward/fall back” is simply to much for their delicate systems.
Gives me a good excuse to sip some homemade “Clear”. Along with the sun coming up, sun going down, Wednesdays, etc.
I’ll drink to that! (with some brown) 🙂
Time to disclose what pot stocks you own, Mac.
This is now past ridiculous.
“Any time change can exacerbate drowsiness because your internal clock has not adjusted to the time change. This can lead to disruptions in sleep until your body adjusts, which can take a few days to a week,”
Put in three decades of rotating shift work, we laughed at the cry about “spring ahead, fall behind”.
Kevin2: husband retired from rotating shifts in 2004, shift was rotated weekly, lots overtime, was wage grade civil svc (or call it the circus) in energy management (sitting at a desk) .
Daylight savings time needs to be ABOLISHED! It serve NO purpose other than to fook with your internal clock! Arizona doesn’t observe it and maybe a few others. I think what needs to happen is get a petition to have it on the state ballot. I guarantee it will get voted out! Post petitions at conveinience stores, dmv, etc. Get rid of this rediculous shit….
I think it is only AZ and HI that don’t do daylight savings time(DST). Most US territories like Guam and PR don’t observe DST either.
I do not miss DST at all.
You get used to feeling bad as you and your co workers are all in the same boat. You are dead headed, slow, sharp as a butter knife at 3AM until the adrenaline kicks in when multiple alarms go off. At least I made a real good living.
The gov. is extremely dysfunctional on all levels. Why not just move the clock up 30 min. and leave it alone year around making it standard time?? Is this rocket science?
End this farce. The time should stay the same all year long.
The way to wake up earlier is to go to sleep earlier. If you’re going to use CBD oil, take it before going to bed. It may help with sleep. I don’t think that I would want to experiment with a product like CBD for sleep deprivation. If it increases your sleepiness, instead of decreasing it, your commute to work might be dangerous for you and for everyone else on the road. People want a quick fix for every little problem. That’s pathetic. TV ads add to this ‘”take an aspirin” and call me in the morning” pill pushing solution for everything mentality that TV pushes down peoples throats all day every day with advertisements and with subliminal suggestions during programming. CBD oil may have some benefits but this promotional article is for the birds. As Kevin is so fond of saying GTHOOH, get the hell out of here.
If you live a typical day shift work life, DST is arguably a blessing because it gives you an extra hour of daylight in the after work hours of your day when, for many of us, it is most useful.
I have been able to accomplish many outdoor tasks after supper that would not be possible if we stayed on ST.
Maybe the US has become so cut off from the outdoors that this doesn’t matter to a lot of people. I live in a hot climate and being outside in any of the PM doesn’t bother me (unless I have to dig ditches that day :-))
The Indian quote doesn’t take into consideration what is really happening and is just snarky sophistry IMO.
I don’t mind going thru the Spring readjustment period (don’t usually have any issues in the Fall)
You gotta be a real snowflake to have your world upset by a freakin’ 1 hour time change…[GET OFF MY LAWN 🙂 ]
Then just get up an hour earlier duh. You think you are getting an extra hour of daylight? Better rethink that one…
I apologize for my poor communication skills…
Again, for a typical day shift, work life schedule, the morning hour of daylight is not useful for accomplishing outdoor tasks. Getting up earlier has nothing to do with it.
For me, earlier in my life in particular, having the extra hour of daylight in the evening in the warmer part of the year has been a blessing for outdoor tasks and projects.
I understand that most employers (at least traditionally) won’t let you adjust your work schedule to take advantage of the daylight by getting in to work an hour earlier and leaving an hour earlier.
You wrote: “In the spring, which is, unfortunately, the time we lose an hour of sleep turning our clocks back, people most often experience fatigue.”
Actually, in the Spring, we turn our clocks FORWARD 1 hour! Love your work, Mac!
Which makes you lose an hour of sleep with your biological clock.
Notice how everyone all of sudden is PUSHING CBD Oil REALLY hard?
Because more and more research shows how beneficial it is. That’s why you are seeing it everywhere.
Tumeric is probably even more beneficial. Thats why you never hear about it mainstream. Not for sleep but many health issues. Natural News has a ton of info on it.
“Research on cannabis and sleep is in its infancy and has yielded mixed results.”
…if only you’d link to some of that CONCLUSIVE research. Again, we should all strive to be DISCRIMINATING consumers of information, not just shills trying to push certain products.
https://www.projectcbd.org/cbd-for/sleep – list of studies there.
I stubbed my toe here’s why I should smoke pot.
Why? Honestly. Why. Are you siding with a bunch of Boomerflake potheads.
CBD oil, because bran muffins, radon detectors and crystal bracelets have already been milked.
Is there anyone else here who lives a schedule-less, non-clock-centered life? I’m old, retired and live alone. Without work and family driving a pattern in my life anymore, I have gone chronometer-free for several years. I sleep when I get the urge and stop when I’m done. It doesn’t matter what your watch says. Same thing basically with eating. I eat if I’m hungry and don’t if I’m not though I do make sure to get enough fruits and veggies. I’m fit for my age, good weight, no ailments, don’t take any meds, never sick, and no complaints in life except about the stinking communists and assorted rabble who are trying to take over our country. Daylight Savings Time is a non-issue to me and I don’t see why it should be that big of a deal to anyone else one way or another. There are still the same number of hours of daylight on a given day no matter where the clock is set. Once one goes clock-less, one begins to see that time, at least as we are conditioned to believe in it, is just a totally artificial construct used to control human behavior.
never personally had a drama with DST. The history of the travelling medicine show is entertaining, well recommended, the BS is laugh out loud. This article feels like a modern reprise.
If it gets legal in my neck of woods I might add it to the preps anyway. Does high CBD oil have a shelf life?
From what I’m reading is that much of the CBD oil out there for sale does not contain what it is said to contain on the label. Go figure. But real actual cannabis delivers all of the ingredients beneficial to human health in greater quantities. There is no help convincing the pothead bashers.
