Can CBD help you sleep?

We’ve covered the many benefits of CBD before on the blog. But how does CBD affect sleep? Let’s dig in to the ways CBD may help with various sleep issues and how it can be used to help you relax.  

Many researchers believe that CBD improves sleep by tackling the main causes of insomnia. For example, CBD may help reduce anxiety that contributes to insomnia. Insomnia is when one struggles to fall asleep or stay asleep. Insomnia leads to feeling more tired during the day, which can affect productivity, concentration and mood.  

CBD can also help ease symptoms of pain. Many people have trouble sleeping or staying asleep due to pain. A 2018 review in Frontiers in Pharmacology noted that there’s evidence showing that CBD can help soothe pain. This can, in turn, lead to relaxation and better sleep. 

Furthermore, CBD offers a natural solution to everyday stress and can help relax the body, making it easier to fall asleep. 

But there’s more—research has shown that CBD doesn’t just help you fall asleep at night. It may be helpful in treating REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), which is associated with poor sleep and nightmares. This means CBD may help prevent daytime sleepiness that is caused by RBD, making you more productive and focused during the day.
