Can CBD Help Me Sleep?

Welcome to the Canax CBD blog!

As we all know by now, CBD has many uses. It can help with symptoms of menopause and perimenopause, it can help ease the symptoms of anxiety and depression, it can even help with pain, from arthritis to general aches and discomfort. But what about sleep?

In this blog, we’ll be looking at whether CBD can help you get your forty winks. We’ll look at research that examines the connection between CBD and insomnia, hear stories about those who have suffered with poor sleep and have tried CBD to help treat it, and also show you where you can purchase CBD edibles.

Let’s start with some of the research that examines the link between CBD and sleep.

CBD and Sleep – The Science

CBD and Sleep

CBD has been gaining popularity recently as an effective treatment to help with a range of symptoms. As a result, research is growing around everything from depression to anxiety, menopause and more, and when it comes to sleep, this is no different.

An investigation carried out in May 2012, for example, showed that a CBD dosage of 160 milligrams helped increase sleep duration, primarily due to the suppression of cortisol that occurs after taking CBD. Increases in the levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone, typically peak in the morning for the general population, but those suffering with insomnia may have high cortisol levels at night which leads to an increase in night time awakenings.

The research found that CBD worked to supress cortisol which led to less of these awakenings and as a result, an uninterrupted sleep.

Another more recent analysis carried out in 2020 examined CBD and sleep using 103 participants who suffered from anxiety or insomnia. The researchers compared the effects of CBD to other prescribed medications and found that 25mg was the most effective dosage for anxiety, while sleep needed higher dosages.

The results, which came from 3 months of studying participants and follow-ups carried out monthly, showed that 66.7% of the participants reported an improvement in sleep after taking CBD as treatment. This is a substantial amount and enough to show us that CBD can indeed help with sleep.

As well as the scientific research, we’ve also found that hundreds of our customers have reported an improvement to their sleep patterns after consuming our CBD gummies over a sustained period. In fact, it’s one of the main reasons people love our products so much.

A great example of one of these customers is children’s nurse Catherine, who struggled to sleep between 12 hour shifts. Now she reports getting the “best sleep ever” enabling her to be “ready to conquer another shift” after purchasing our Mummy Gummies CBD edibles.

Jane, another happy customer, also said that our Mummy Gummies CBD edibles help her get a decent night’s sleep as she continues to live with cancer. She also noted they help with her anxiety in general and the taste is lovely compared to other CBD products.

And those are just a couple of our customers! You can take a look at our customer feedback to read more stories just like these.
