CBD oil to aid sleep
CBD is often used to reduce seizures and provide pain relief from various health conditions and ailments. However, some studies suggest that CBD oil may also help with:
- REM sleep behaviour disorder (RBD)
- Excessive daytime sleepiness disorder
Though not a sleep disorder as such, anxiety can contribute to poor quality sleep or insufficient sleep. CBD calms the nervous system and can be used to treat anxiety-related disorders.
People who suffer from insomnia find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep at night. It can affect daytime wakefulness, ability to concentrate, and mood. CBD oil for sleep is believed to decrease the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and increases deep, restful sleep.
CBD oil can also improve REM sleep abnormalities in people with Parkinson’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). REM typically occurs later at night and impacts your memory and mood. During this sleep stage, dreams are more vivid, breathing is faster, and heart rate is higher.
How does CBD work to improve sleep?
CBD is one of many known cannabinoids that’s derived from the sativa plant.
Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system which plays a part in maintaining certain body functions, such as mood, appetite, sleep, and regulating circadian rhythm.
Within the endocannabinoid system, there are two primary receptors: CB1 and CB2. When taken orally, the CBD attaches to these cells and improves sleep.
Research suggests that, in smaller doses, CBD stimulates alertness and reduces daytime sleepiness which is key for the sleep-wake cycle, while higher doses are sedating – allowing you to fall asleep faster and sleep longer.

CBD Oil for sleep - FAQs
Is your CBD oil for sleep safe?
Yes. Our CBD oil for sleep is made from natural ingredients and is third-party tested to ensure it’s safe, legal and effective. It’s also gluten-free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Though not approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), it contains trace amounts of THC, so doesn’t produce the same psychoactive “high” that is typically associated with cannabis.
Side effects are rare but include:
- changes in appetite
- changes in weight
Much like anything else, before you start using CBD oil for sleep, make sure you read the instructions label carefully. And if you have trouble sleeping, it’s always worth seeking advice from a doctor. They are best equipped to tell you if/how CBD will improve your sleep.
How much CBD oil do I need for a good night’s sleep?
Most people take between 25mg and 1,500mg of CBD per day – but it’s important to note that, what works for some people might not work for others.
The amount of CBD oil you should take to improve your sleep typically depends on:
- your age
- your gender
- your metabolic rate
- the quality of the product
Our best advice for anyone thinking about using CBD oil for sleep is to start slow. Keep a record of how much you take and how it made you feel and, if necessary, gradually increase it until you find a dosage that works best for you.
What is the best way to use CBD oil for sleep?
There are a number of ways to take CBD oil – but the most effective method is to apply a drop directly beneath the tongue.
Leaving the product to absorb under your tongue – rather than mixing it with food and drink – preserves more of the CBD as it doesn’t have to pass through the digestive system. As a result of this, the effects can be felt sooner.
Taking CBD oil at least 20 minutes before bedtime may improve insomnia and promote a restful night’s sleep, whilst giving the CBD enough time to take effect.For more tips on using CBD oil for sleep, call our experts on 0333 043 9975.
