Does CBD make you drowsy?

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

Whilst lowering anxiety levels and feeling more relaxed can aid a peaceful uninterrupted night’s sleep, using CBD does not leave you feeling sleepy like some non-natural/ pharmaceutical sleep aids can. Excessive sleepiness is often found when ingesting the psychoactive compound THC (found in cannabis) and because THC is only present in minute quantities in CBD products, that heavy drowsiness is not an issue. Incorporating a natural botanical supplement like CBD into a healthy lifestyle involving good nutrition and mindfulness can provide the most restful night’s sleep but won’t make you feel excessively drowsy or with feelings of fatigue.

CBD Science

In two clinical studies of healthy subjects, somnolence (sleepiness) was only seen starting at CBD doses at least 20x higher than the maximum 1 mg/kg/day CBD intake recommended from food products or CBD oils.

It is not likely that taking CBD at the recommended dosage on the product label will cause any feelings of sleepiness.
