When to take CBD oil for sleep
Are you struggling to fall asleep, feeling extremely restless at night? You will have a better idea of fixing the problem if you understand what is going on. Multiple conditions could lead to sleep disorders:
- Shift worker disorder.
- Sleep Apnea.
Have you ever contemplated taking CBD to help your sleep condition?
What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol heals health issues; some include long-term neurological concerns such as Alzheimer’s. The dosage and results of CBD oil depending on the individual’s purpose. Below we have provided more assistance on when to take Cannabidiol.
Most of you are wondering when to take CBD for sleep? A recommended 1-2 hours before you drift off, whilst giving it time to take effect in your body through soothing into a pleasant sleep.
About 20 minutes after taking CBD oil, you may begin to feel the effects. However, we are all different, which could take longer for some. For this reason, an estimated one hour before you go to bed is advised.
As we all know, timing is everything if you want to see improvements. Avoid rushing and prepare beforehand. Taking CBD too close to your bedtime will be ineffective, and taking it five hours before is considered pointless.
Luckily, the choices of improving sleep have vastly increased over the years regarding quantity, results to expect, and products for rest.
The optimal quantity would be 50g; however, CBD and other vital Cannabidiols are far more beneficial. On the other hand, you may decide to start slow with only a few drops of CBD oil at first, then add more drops each time before bed until you reach the best possible amount. To see the maximum benefits of CBD consistently for 8-12 weeks. The choice is yours.
It is also not uncommon for those who take Cannabidiol to see issues reappear after stopping taking the oils. Thus, if you are serious about treating your sleep disorder, stick to a consistent routine you can abide by for a few months to give the CBD oil the best chance of working for you.
What the research says
From our own experience, most of us are aware that an increase in stress can build up over time and affect our sleep patterns and demeanor. Perhaps you have seen co-workers become more anxious over the last few months and are left wondering what happened to that joyful person you once knew?
The Mental Health Foundation stated an estimated ‘one-third of the UK is silently suffering from poor sleep or Insomnia, which is affecting their health.’ Recent findings found that Cannabinoids provide therapeutic relief for Insomnia, mainly daytime and night excessive sleep disorders.
Results to expect
Everybody’s system works differently. Taking a little bit of CBD can take them a long way; for others, it would take a lot of CBD to find results.
The range of CBD needed can go from 15mg to 150mg to feel an immediate effect.
For sleep, you also need to make sure it’s broad spectrum CBD and optimized for rest with the surrounding cannabinoids.

Sleep is a critical—yet often neglected—factor for overall health and well-being. Sleep is just as vital for our health as a well-balanced diet and regular exercise. However, according to the CDC, it’s estimated that one in three adults don’t get enough sleep. Sleep helps regulate our metabolism and weight, boosts our immune system, promotes mood stability, helps prevent cardiovascular diseases, and improves cognitive functions such as thinking and concentration, short- and long-term memory retention, and attention, among many other important roles.
If you’re like me, you understand the importance of sleep but lay in bed at night exhausted, wide-awake, watching the time pass more and more quickly as you calculate how many hours of sleep you’ll be able to get now if you could just fall asleep.
More and more people are turning away from melatonin and sleeping pills and welcoming cannabidiol (CBD) oil into their nightly routine. Let’s take a look at how CBD oil works to improve sleep, when to take it, and how much to take.
While more research is required to fully understand the mechanisms in which CBD reduces mild anxiety, mitigates pain, and improves sleeplessness, anecdotal evidence suggests the benefits may be related to the interaction between CBD and receptors within the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is important because the ECS plays an integral role in the regulation of processes and functions including sleep, mood, pain, inflammation, and memory
Another potential mechanism that may explain the sleep benefits of CBD may be linked to the body’s cortisol levels. Cortisol is a steroid hormone responsible for regulating a wide range of important processes throughout the body, including sleep-wake cycles. In one study, researchers discovered that cortisol levels decreased significantly when subjects took large doses of CBD oil, suggesting that CBD may act as a sedative through its impact on the release of cortisol.
Different doses of CBD oil are likely to produce different benefits. While smaller amounts of CBD may act as a stimulant and provide a calming effect and sense of clear-headedness, larger amounts of CBD may act as a sedative.
With that in mind, it’s often recommended that when exploring CBD oil to improve sleep you should first start by trying CBD oil during the day. This will allow you to gauge your body’s unique response to your initial dosage and adjust accordingly when taking it before bed to receive optimal results.
Another important factor for incorporating CBD oil into your nightly routine is understanding when to take CBD, as the effects are not immediate. Many recommend taking CBD about an hour before sleep to give it time to take effect within the body. For the highest efficacy and speed of absorption, CBD oil in tincture form is taken sublingually, meaning you place the oil under your tongue and let it sit there for 30 seconds before swallowing.
In general, improved sleep is typically achieved with higher doses, however, everyone’s perfect dose is unique; too much CBD can be just as ineffective as too little. CBD doses for sleep can range anywhere from 40 mg to 160 mg, or more. You may start with a dose of 60 mg and gradually ramp up or decrease your dose to find your sweet spot.
We have seen on some occasions slight allergies to various terpenes or the MCT oil—the carrier oil which is derived from coconuts. Full-spectrum CBD contains an array of cannabinoids from the hemp plant including trace amounts of THC (under 0.3%), and these all have the potential to have a unique impact on each person. CBD can also interact with certain medications, so it’s always recommended you talk with your doctor before using CBD. Many CBD oil companies mislabel or misrepresent their products. So, before you purchase CBD oil, do your research on the company and its quality control protocols. Look for products that:
Are third-party tested for quality and safety
Have clear labeling of CBD concentration and THC percentage
Provide a full list of ingredients
Do not contain additional fillers, chemicals, or byproducts
Use high-quality, US-grown hemp plants
