CBD oil can be a great addition to your sleep routine, but finding the proper dosage can be confusing. This article will help you find your best CBD Oil dosage for sleep.
Finding good information about CBD dosages, specifically for sleep, can be challenging. If your doctor doesn't provide a recommendation and you haven't used CBD before, it's best to start with a reasonable amount and adjust from there. Every individual reacts differently to CBD based on factors such as weight, tolerance, and genetic profile.
We've searched through a lot of information from trusted sources to support our dosage guidelines below.
CBD DAILY AMOUNT
DOSAGE & TIMING OF CBD SPECIFICALLY FOR SLEEP
When taking CBD specifically for sleep, the same rules apply: start with a reasonable amount and make adjustments up or down as needed. One simple and practical guideline is: If you are drowsy in the morning, lessen your dosage, and if you experience no to little effect, increase your dosage.
Timing is everything! Another variable to consider is when to take your CBD. We have found from our clients that 30 minutes before bedtime is the ideal time to take CBD sleep oil. Around the 30-minute mark, you will start to feel more relaxed. This is your sign to power down for sleep! Don't be tempted to do one more thing: check your phone, tidy, or throw a load of laundry in. This moment of feeling relaxed is your optimal falling asleep window.
On the other hand, if you wake in the middle of the night and take CBD oil for sleep, you may wake up drowsy because the oil was taken later in your sleep cycle. We have found that if you tend to wake up in the middle of the night, don't wait for that to happen; instead take CBD 30 minutes before bedtime. According to the World Health Organization, CBD is non-addictive, which means you can take it as often as you want without concern.
The potency of the product you are taking is another vital consideration. Yellow Athletic products are highly potent. So, if you are taking 100mg of another product, starting with a smaller dosage of Yellow Athletic CBD is prudent. In some cases, our product is up to 10 times more potent than other brands. The upside of Yellow Athletic products is they will last longer and contain more milligrams of CBD per dollar spent.
WHAT IS CBN? WHY IS IT IN SOME CBD SLEEP OILS?
Some brands of CBD use the cannabinol CBN in their sleep formulas. Yellow Athletic's sleep formula has 3,000 mg Full Spectrum Formulation = 2,200 CBD + 500mg CBN + 300mg CBG.
CBN stands for "Cannabinol," one of the many cannabinoids in the cannabis plants. It is a naturally occurring compound and part of the larger phytocannabinoid family. CBN is not as well-known as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (cannabidiol), but its therapeutic effects have gained attention. CBN is the cannabinoid most often associated with promoting relaxation and sleepiness, making it helpful for those experiencing insomnia or trouble sleeping. When evaluating CBD products for sleep and dosage amounts, remember that the amount of CBN also influences how effective it will be for you and dosage what will be your optimal dosage. Again, start slow and build up.
DOSAGE STARTING POINT
The most common starting point is 20-40mg of CBD per dose, but for athletic recovery, consider a higher amount, such as 50-100mg of CBD per dose. You may take several doses throughout the day to reach your daily goal. For example, if your daily goal is 100 mg of CBD, you may take 2 x 50mg doses or 4 x 25mg.
After a week of consistent usage, increase your dose by 10mg until you feel it's effectively treating your symptoms. We recommend at least one month of consistent use, providing time to see if CBD works for you.
Keep in mind that CBD may interact with other medications you are taking, so it's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional before adding CBD oil to your routine, especially if you are taking other medications or have any underlying health conditions. See this article by Dr. Morgan Camp on CBD and its interactions with medications.
