How CBD Can Help with Insomnia

How CBD Can Help with Insomnia

Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorders. According to the Brazilian Sleep Association (ABS), chronic insomnia can last an average of 3 years, affecting 56% to 74% of patients annually, with 46% experiencing it continuously. This can increase the risk of developing other health issues. Fortunately, cannabidiol (CBD) can help treat insomnia.

The Role of CBD in Sleep Regulation

Among the various medicinal potentials of cannabis is sleep regulation. CBD helps regulate the endocannabinoid system, especially the receptors in the hypothalamus, the brain region that controls the sleep-wake cycle.

Most studies on this topic indicate that CBD has significant anxiolytic properties, improving sleep quality, reducing the intensity and frequency of anxious episodes, and, in some cases, reducing the need for traditional anxiety medications. Literature reviews highlight CBD's promising therapeutic potential for treating anxiety disorders. However, a cautious approach is essential to ensure patients receive the correct dosage and are monitored for potential adverse effects.


A study by specialists from the University of Florida evaluated the effectiveness of medicinal cannabis in treating patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Preliminary results, published in the journal Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids, showed positive effects on patients' mental health, well-being, and sleep, including a reduction in the frequency of nightmares.

Melatonin and Sleep

Melatonin, known as the "sleep hormone," is a neuro-hormone naturally produced by the human body and secreted by the pineal gland at the brain's base. It regulates the circadian rhythm, corresponding to the sleep-wake cycle (biological clock). Melatonin prepares our body for sleep, signaling to the nervous system that night has begun. It is responsible for all physiological changes necessary for the daily rest period, including sleep, metabolic, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, and immune system changes.
