A number of mental and psychological factors can lead to sleep deprivation and according to Harvard, more than 70 types of sleep disorders exist. Some common problems that lead to less sleep include depression, anxiety, ADHD, and pain. As you may know, those same problems are what many CBD products claim to help. So naturally, you would guess that CBD does in fact help you sleep better. However, due to the limited research and info on CBD is still generally unknown.
One study showed that taking less than 160 mg of CBD can actually keep you awake and while higher doses can promote better sleep, the FDA has yet to approve many CBD products. Unregulated products mean you might not know what you’re getting. Make sure to check the SDS sheets on our product pages to understand our CBD. Another study published by Kaiser-Permanente showed people reporting better sleep within the first month of CBD use. However, that effect faded in months two and three.
In short, CBD has the potential to help with sleep but is best used over a short period of time. As always it’s important that you buy your CBD from a trusted source and consult your doctor before use. Side effects are relatively rare in CBD, but the most common side effects include fatigue, diarrhea, changes in appetite, and changes in weight.
