How to Use CBD Gummies for Sleeping

If you struggle falling asleep or staying asleep, you’re not alone. Study after study confirms that nearly everyone has trouble sleeping or feels exhausted. There are tons of medications out there that claim to help you sleep, but is there an option for those of us who are looking for a more natural solution?

Enter CBD.

CBD is used by people all around the world to help them live a happier, healthier, and more stress-free life. Part of a holistically healthy life is getting enough sleep—and the team here at Highline Wellness is here to help.

Using our Night CBD Gummies is a great all-natural sleep aid that can help give you a better quality of sleep, which will make the time you spend awake better too! (They’re also available in a green apple flavor!)

How to Use CBD Gummies for Sleeping

Identify Your Sleep Needs

Do you have more trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you suffer from nightmares or snoring? Identifying these problems will help you determine how much CBD you should take each night, as well as what type (oil, gummy, etc.) would work best for you.

In general, whatever your sleep troubles, CBD gummies are a great option to start with, especially since our night gummies contain melatonin, which is a natural sleep aid. It absorbs quickly so you’ll have an easier time falling asleep, and the results last long enough to help you stay asleep.

Take 30–60 Minutes before Bed

For best results, take your CBD 30–60 minutes before you’d like to fall asleep. Take your dosage, and then go through your nighttime routine—brush your teeth, take care of your skin, and read a chapter in your favorite book. This will give enough time for the CBD to kick in, so you’re ready to fall asleep!

Start Small and Increase Slowly

We recommend starting with 5mg (half a dropper) in order to figure out what dosage is best for you. It’s all about finding a happy medium, so you’re taking enough that you sleep better, but don’t take more than you need. Finding that balance is key, so it’s important to slowly increase your dosage if you’re still not getting enough sleep until you find what works for you and your body.

Keep Track of Dosings and Sleep

Along those same lines, it’s important to keep track of your dosings and how you feel. Keeping a sleep journal can really help with this. If you keep a bullet journal, you can create a page for this at the beginning of each month! Or it can be as simple as just keeping a notepad by your bedside and recording how much CBD you took at night, and how you feel in the morning. (e.g., 5mg, sleepy / 10mg, refreshed)

How CBD Gummies Help You Sleep Better

There are many ways that CBD helps you sleep better. For many people, anxiety and racing thoughts increase at night, so they have trouble falling asleep. CBD helps calm stressful thoughts to get you into a more relaxed state before falling asleep.

In addition, many people use CBD to relieve pain and soreness, both of which can cause people to have interrupted sleep patterns. Taking a small dose of CBD before bed can help alleviate some of those issues to help you get a better night’s sleep.
