How CBD Works against Insomnia and Provides Better Sleep

Scientists believe that cannabis, whether originated from hemp plants or medical marijuana, can improve the sleep pattern. This is, because Cannabidiol (and other cannabinoids) interacts with the network of receptors in the brain. It regulates neurotransmitters and other chemicals that are vital in reducing anxiety, stress, as well as chronic pain. Most importantly, it also regulates those, that help you get a good night’s sleep. This is most important, if you suffer from Insomnia. As a matter of fact, Cannabidiol can help treat many of the causes of sleep disorders. Please note that none of the research is currently supported by clinical trials, whether in the United States or any other country.

Scientists Hypothesize that the Effects of Hemp-Derived CBD against Insomnia are due to:

1. Its ability to reduce anxiety

Anandamide is one of the body’s major endocannabinoids. It is manufactured in areas of the brain associated with mood, motivation, as well as the higher thought processes. Anandamide also exhibits both anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties. Cannabidiol prevents the breakdown of anandamide, in turn helping to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression which can cause sleeplessness.

2. Its ability to promote REM sleep

REM sleep is the sleep-stage which is thought to benefit emotional health amongst other things. Researchers have long theorized that REM sleep contributes to core features of cognitive function. A lack of REM sleep on the other hand causes cognitive dysfunction, negative anxiety, as well as anxious depression. In a recent review study, researchers suggest that CBD has therapeutic potential for the treatment of Insomnia (sleep difficulties) by promoting REM sleep. Thereby, reducing many of the negative psychological effects of sleep deprivation.

CBD Product Types

It’s important to use high-quality CBD products and do so regularly when trying to fight off a medical condition such as Insomnia. To get a night of better sleep, we would recommend the following cannabis product types by uWeed: 

Sublingual Treatments & Ingestibles

We recommend using a full-spectrum CBD oil, a CBD tincture, or CBD capsules about 60 - 90 minutes before bedtime.

Vaping & Smoking

Vaping CBD or smoking CBD weed can, in addition, provide almost immediate effects due to its fast onset of action.

CBD Dosage

In an early study on the effects of CBD on sleep, researchers found that people with sleeping disorders/Insomniacs needed doses of about 150 mg to 160 mg of CBD to induce sleep. It is therefore suggested to start with a dose of 40-50 mg 60-90min before bedtime. You may thereafter gradually increase the dosage to anywhere between 150 mg to 600 mg until relief is achieved.

40-50 mg
30-60 min before bedtime
