When to take CBD oil for sleep

Why do I struggle to 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:

  • Insomnia.
  • Shift worker disorder.
  • Depression.
  • 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.
