Can CBD Oil help with Insomnia

Insomnia and CBD

CBD may help you sleep

Cannabidiol — also known as CBD — is one of the main cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system, which helps your body maintain a state of balance and stability, or homeostasis.

Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD isn’t psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you “high.” Instead, it has a range of health applications, like reducing seizures in people with epilepsy and pain relief from various conditions.

Some research and anecdotal evidence suggest that CBD can also help you get a good night’s sleep. Here’s what you need to know about using CBD for sleep.

What the research says about CBD and sleep

To understand whether CBD can improve sleep, we first have to understand what causes poor sleep.

Many things can cause you to sleep badly:

  • mental health disorders, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression
  • medication, which can disturb your sleep-wake cycle
  • physical conditions, such as chronic painandrestless leg syndrome
  • caffeine, especially when consumed late in the day
  • environmental factors, such as loud noises or an uncomfortable bed

If your insomnia is caused by external factors or related conditions, CBD may help by treating the causes of sleeplessness.

While research on CBD is still in its infancy, some research suggests that CBD can treat anxiety.

Pain, which may also cause sleep problems, can be helped by CBD as well. CBD improve the symptoms of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), a disorder in which a person acts out their dreams. RBD is associated with poor sleep and nightmares.

CBD may help treat:

  • the causes of sleepiness
  • excessive daytime sleepiness
  • grogginess

How to use CBD for sleep

The dosage of CBD you use, and the time you take it, will depend on a number of factors. Your weight, personal body chemistry, and the nature of your sleeping troubles will affect how the CBD works. What works for some people might not work for others.

Most clinical trials on CBD and sleep have involved giving the subjects anywhere between 25 mg to 1,500 mg of CBD per day. It’s best to start with a low dosage and gradually increase it until you find something that works for you.

Much of the research on CBD, anxiety, and sleep has noted that many patients don’t notice an immediate difference. The 2019 study mentioned above noted that it took about a month for the subjects to notice a difference. Be patient, and remember that you’re unlikely to get immediate results.

Side effects and safety concerns of CBD

Side effects are relatively uncommon. However, you may experience some minor side effects.

Possible side effects

  • fatigue
  • diarrhea
  • changes in appetite
  • changes in weight

Though CBD is generally regarded as safe, may also interact with other medications you’re taking, so speak to your doctor before using it.

Remember to use high-quality CBD products. Unfortunately, CBD isn’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As a result, there are some weak and possibly dangerous products out there that are labeled as “CBD.”

Before you buy CBD from a company, research their history. Avoid companies with a history of mislabeling CBD, and opt for CBD that has been tested by a third party.

Talk to your doctor before trying CBD

It’s essential to talk to your doctor before taking supplements or medication of any kind — including CBD. A doctor is best equipped to tell you how to use CBD to improve your sleep based on your specific circumstances.

‘CBD interacts with liver enzymes involved in breaking down many prescribed medicines. This can slow the way some drugs are metabolized, so their blood levels rise, which may lead to side-effects. If you are taking any prescribed medicines, it’s important to check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking CBD. 

While the majority of CBD oil users don’t experience any negative effects, there are possible side effects. These can include dry mouth or drowsiness.

⚠️ If you’re taking other medication for anxiety or any other condition, CBD oil could interact with common prescription medications, so it is important that you consult with your GP before you try it.
