CBD is the non-psychoactive compound of the hemp plant. It won’t get you high, but it may get your body and mind a bit more relaxed. At Ettitude, we are obsessed with the advancements of sleep-health, and CBD is a new tool we are excited explore.
Can CBD Oil Help You Sleep?
Research suggests that CBD may increase your sleep quality and reduce insomnia. A small amount of CBD oil 30 minutes before sleep time could reduce the chatter in your head, get your body in a relaxed state, and induce a sense of well being.
There is some conflicting evidence regarding CBD and sleep. However, we believe CBD will help you sleep better in the event that:
– You can’t sleep due to pain
– You have trouble sleeping due to anxiety and speeding thoughts
– You have hard time relaxing and letting go
For other cases of sleep disorders, the medical literature is few and far between, particularly with human trials. Most users do however report that CBD does help them sleep, and since CBD doesn’t have any known adverse health effect – why not try?
How should I take CBD for sleep?
CBD comes in many form factors – from oil tincture, pills, vapes to gummies. The dosage can depend on a variety of factors such as your weight, your diet, and your personal susceptibility to CBD.
