How Can CBD Help Me Sleep?

CBD can help you sleep by alleviating the common causes of insomnia — such as anxiety, chronic stress, or pain.

It’s important to combine sleep with adequate sleep hygiene. This involves other lifestyle changes that can be used to support a healthy sleep cycle.

Some examples of proper sleep hygiene include:

  • Avoiding computer or phone screens at least an hour before bed
  • Avoiding stimulants in the late afternoon and evening
  • Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day
  • Dimming the lights in the evening
  • Using blue-light filters on your computer screens in the evening
  • Practicing yoga, meditation, or wind-down techniques before bed

The best CBD oils for sleep are made from a full-spectrum extract rich in sleep-supportive terpenes and cannabinoids. Ideally, a CBD oil for sleep should contain at least 50 mg of CBD per milliliter of oil.
