Does CBD Help with Sleeping Better?

September 23, 2020

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a major compound in cannabis. The extract is believed to interact with the endocannabinoid system, which regulates certain body functions, including appetite, mood, and sleep.

CBD – unlike THC, the intoxicating compound in cannabis – will not make you high. Instead, it’s widely believed to manage epilepsy, pain, etc.  

Talking sleep, some research-backed by anecdotal reports say CBD may help improve our night’s rest. So, if you’re having issues with seep, CBD looks promising.  There are so many products available to help you sleep better.

Quickly, this article explains how CBD can help improve your sleep routine.  Many users have applauded CBD for promoting sleep. But, away from users’ testimony, what does the research say?

Research On CBD Oil for Sleep

Before we discuss CBD’s impact on sleep, let’s quickly review the likely causes of poor sleep:

Several factors contribute to poor sleep, including:

  • Caffeine consumption near-bed hours
  • Pain
  • Past-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and related mental health disorder.
  • Uncomfortable beddings, loud noises and other environmental factors.
  • Medications that affect the sleep-wake pattern

CBD comes handy for Insomnia caused by external factors.

Although CBD research is still in its early stage, research authors suggest CBD may help handle conditions like anxiety.

Also, pain, another major cause of anxiety, may hinder proper sleep. Some reviews posit that evidence so far is fair enough to think CBD handles pain. Of course, reduced pain equals improved sleep.

Grogginess, an insomnia symptom, might also be influenced by CBD. According to a 2014 review, CBD may help encourage wakefulness in both humans and animals. The reviewers, however, said they are yet to understand the exact mechanism behind the result obtained.

How Does CBD Oil Help Promote Sleep?

Even authors of the researches that suggest CBD help with sleeping better are not sure how it works. Most of the studies referenced above emphasize the need for more research to explain the scientific connection between CBD and sleep.

Any Side Effects Of CBD For Sleep?

A research review considered several studies on CBD safety and concluded that the compound is widely safe.

Although there are no notable side effects, a handful of users have reported minor results like:

  • Diarrhea
  • Change in weight
  • Changes in appetite
  • Fatigue

Also, there’s a rising concern about the likelihood of CBD to cause liver damage – mainly when used in large doses or with other drugs.

Also, while pure CBD oil may not threaten your health, there are several fly-by-night products [packed with pesticides and related harmful substances] on the market. So, before you buy

  • Ask for the certificate of analysis (COA).
  • Ensure the product contains not more .3 percent THC.
  • Check buyer’s reviews and ensure you’re buying from a reputable seller.
  • And, lastly, avoid products that promise to ‘cure’ or ‘treat.’
