CBD for Sleep
Updated: Jul 9, 2019
It’s easy to see why people are beginning to take CBD to help with sleep: Almost 80% of Americans say they have trouble sleeping at least once a week, and many existing treatments, particularly prescription and over-the-counter drugs, are often not very effective and sometimes risky, too. A small but growing body of research provides some support for CBD as a sleep aid. A study published in February 2019, for example, suggests CBD might help people with short-term sleep problems. And Joseph Maroon, M.D., a clinical professor and neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center who has researched the effect of compounds similar to CBD on the brain, says that CBD has properties that could help some people sleep better. Most notably, he says, it appears to ease anxiety and pain, both of which can make it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep.
