CBD rose to popularity in the United States after the U.S. Farm Bill of 2018, which legalized industrial hemp to be distributed in the country. CBD is known to benefit those who have chronic pain, migraines, depression, and much more, but it’s also a game-changer for bedtime, so here's why and how you can use CBD for sleep issues.
CBD has mostly been tested on animals; however, Harvard Health Publishing research cites evidence from both animal studies and self-reports from humans that suggest CBD helps insomnia, aiding in falling asleep and staying asleep. Also, it's important to know that CBD and THC are different; THC can get you high, while CBD will make you relaxed.
Healthline reports that some of the most popular ways to use CBD before bed are edibles (such as gummies and chocolate), oils, pill, and vape concentrates, and any of these may allow you to sleep better. However, it’s still best to do your own research and make sure CBD is right for you, since there may be side effects such as drowsiness and weight fluctuation.
