Pain and Lack of Sleep. It’s a Vicious Cycle!

Pain and Lack of Sleep. It’s a Vicious Cycle!

By Mathew Fairfax | Nov 2, 2021


What keeps you up at night?  Whether it’s from a bad back, knee pain, restless legs, neuropathy or arthritis, chronic pain and discomfort puts you in double jeopardy: it robs you of restful sleep and makes you more fatigued and anxious, and thus more sensitive to pain.  It’s a vicious cycle!

Some facts about the relationship between pain and sleep:

  • 1 in 5 people report that pain impacts the quality of their sleep at least a few nights a week.
  • 2 out of 3 people with chronic pain report that it has a significant impact on the quality of their sleep.
  • Chronic pain not only makes it hard to fall asleep, it also disturbs your sleep multiple times each night.

Pain and lack of sleep in several ways:

  • Pain sufferers that take prescribed opioid pain medications, such as codeine or hydrocodone may be making their insomnia worse.  Aside from being addictive, these medications can cause apnea, brief pauses in breathing, during sleep. 
  • Sleep deprivation makes you more sensitive to pain. A study in Jan. 28, 2019, issue of The Journal of Neuroscience demonstrated that sleep deprived people are more sensitive to pain.  Up to 120% more sensitive. 
  • Pain affects sleep position.   Certain types of pain, such as arthritis, neuropathy and muscle pay, may prevent you from getting comfortable at night.  This usually results in problems staying asleep.
  • Pain disrupts sleep architecture.  You need a certain amount of each stage of sleep. These stages include light sleep, deep sleep, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. If pain wakes you up, you spend too much time in light sleep, reducing REM sleep which is necessary to feel rested and for proper memory.

Here’s what we suggest: 

  1. Thirty to Forty-Five (30-45) minutes before bed, take our Sleep Gummies or Sleep Tincture.
  2. Right before bed, apply our CBD Pain Cream to the source of your pain or discomfort.   
  3. Enjoy a restful night’s sleep without any a hung over feeling the next morning. 


How it works:  

Our Redeem CBD Pain Cream is formulated to penetrate deep to the source of pain, delivering the soothing effects of menthol, capsicum, arnica oil, and essential oils; along with the anti-inflammatory effect of CBD right to the source of your pain and allowing your body to relax.  

Our Sleep Gummies and Sleep Tincture are scientifically formulated to deliver organic CBD systemically to help your mind relax and disconnect.  Plus, the melatonin and botanicals help to cause drowsiness and adjust your sleep cycle.

Break the Cycle!  The combination of pain and stress relief, plus sleep inducing adaptogens like Chamomile, Passion Flower, and 5-HTP (Griffonia Seed Extract) with melatonin are a perfect way to break the vicious cycle!  We all need restful sleep to heal, fight fatigue, and reduce stress.
