A CBD-Infused Sleep ‘Cocktail’ to Bring on the Zzz’s

CBD won’t get you high but it may help you get some much-needed sleep.

The importance of a good night’s sleep can’t be overstated. So often, we stay up late trying to milk the day for as much time as we can get — then wake up early feeling tired and bleary. Or we toss and turn in bed, replaying the events of the day or the week or the month, our brains cranked up until midnight while our bodies lay there exhausted.

Study after study has shown the importance of regular, restful sleep as part of a healthy lifestyle. Sleep deficiencies can affect everything from brain health and cognition to immune function and mental health.

Fortunately, choices for improving sleep have evolved over the years. Taking sedatives or antihistamines that leave you feeling groggy are far from the only — or healthiest — choices. Sleep seekers have turned to meditation, yoga, hot baths, and herbal supplements in the quest to ensure some solid shut-eye.

And now, another option has entered the sleep space: CBD.

CBD to the rescue

Chances are by now you’ve heard about cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It’s made its way to the forefront of the wellness movement.
