We’ve been asked this question a lot and the answer is – maybe! More clinical trials need to be done, but the preliminary testing seems positive. According to this study conducted in 1980, “People with insomnia who took 160 milligrams of CBD daily slept longer and woke less often. However, those researchers only looked at 15 people.”
CBD affects the body’s endocannabinoid system which maintain functions such as pain, mood, appetite and sleep. According to Dr. Hervé Damas, when CBD binds to the receptors it signals the release of both dopamine and serotonin. He says that CBD may help regulate circadian rhythm.
