CBD for Sleep

Why and How it Works

What is CBD for sleep?

Frequently Asked CBD for Sleep Questions

  • How much CBD for sleep?

    The amount of CBD needed for sleep is quite individual. In general, small amounts of CBD are sedating while large amounts of CBD are activating. The only way to find the sweet spot for your slumber is to experiment and find what works best for you. Start with the smallest serving size, perhaps 2.5 mg or 5 mg. Take that an hour before bed and see how your night goes. Repeat with the smallest amount for a few days to allow the CBD to balance out your endocannabinoid system. Then, if you’re still not getting help for sleep, slowly start increasing the amount until the CBD is giving you better slumber. 

  • What is the best way to take CBD for sleep?

    The best ingestion method for CBD for sleep is the one that you enjoy the most. People like gummies because they are tasty and containing a premeasured amount of CBD. The capsules are another way to easily take an exact amount of CBD. But for many people, they prefer the oil. It tastes good and you can take exactly as much CBD as works for you. Overall, the good part is that all of these ingestion methods work rather quickly and within 30 minutes to an hour, will reach full strength in your system. 

  • Does CBD work for sleep apnea?

    We do not make any medical claims for these products such as using CBD for sleep apnea. Please talk to your healthcare provider about CBD rich hemp extracts with sleep apnea. 

  • Can CBD be used for sleep?

    Yes. When you read surveys about why people are using CBD rich hemp extracts, sleep always appears in the top three reasons. Your endocannabinoid system is strongly present in your brain, including to the brain areas and neurotransmitters related to sleep. However, sleep is complex and while many find CBD helpful for getting them to bed – or lowering their anxiety levels to make it easier to fall asleep – others find it activating and don’t take it after a certain time of day. But even for these people, a serving of CBD in the morning lowers the anxiety of their whole day and makes it easier to fall asleep that night. There’s a reason that so many people are finding success in turning to CBD for sleep. 

  • Can children under 10 use CBD for sleep

    While isolated CBD is used extensively as a pharmaceutical drug for pediatric patients and displays a strong safety profile, we always recommend talking to your child’s healthcare provider before starting them on any nutritional supplements such as CBD rich hemp extracts.

  • When to take cbd for sleep

    The one thing to know is that because everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different, the best times of day to take CBD for sleep is different for everyone. Many of our customers tell us that they love taking CBD 20 minutes before bed, and that taking CBD before bed has made a significant difference in getting a healthy night’s sleep. For others, they find CBD to give a refreshing feeling of alertness when they take CBD in the morning and early afternoon. Taking CBD in the morning eases the stresses of their day and allows them a restful night. It may take a little experimentation finding the best times for you, but we can say that enhanced sleep is one of the most common reasons we hear from customers on why they love our products.
