Sleeping with CBD and Melatonin

Sleeping with CBD and Melatonin

We have all been there. Those restless nights where no matter how hard you try to shut off your brain it is impossible to fall asleep. One of the natural solutions to promote good sleep can be linked to the natural solution of CBD. Unlike THC infused CBD, THC free CBD will not give you a psychoactive effect and instead focus on the benefits of your body’s sleep-wake cycle. Throughout this blog, we will further discuss the use of CBD for insomnia and how Melatonin can also be brought into the mix. 

CBD for Sleep

Numerous research has been conducted in regards to CBD and sleep. Most notably, a study in Permanente Journal found that 66% of participants had improved sleep with CBD capsules before bed. Since CBD helps with anxiety and pain, these external factors can make it difficult for you to fall asleep. In a conversation with Consumer Reports, Joseph Maroon, M.D. says that CBD is a natural way to help calm anxiety that can delay or interrupt sleep. When CBD enters the body, they interact with the receptors in your brain that govern your sleep-wake cycles. By stimulating these receptors, it can help to improve your Zzz’s. 

Melatonin and CBD

Melatonin is a popular over-the-counter solution for sleep, but many might be wondering if it is safe to use with CBD and if there are differences between these two natural solutions. Melatonin tells your body to sleep and CBD can help put you to sleep and to stay asleep. There has been no studies that show they are dangerous when used together and some CBD companies often combine Melatonin with their CBD products. If you do not want to combine the two, make sure to always read labels before purchasing.
