How and Why You Should Take CBD Gummies for Sleep

Without a good night’s sleep, you might get irritable, fatigued, and unproductive. 

That said, there are numerous ways to get a good night’s sleep, ranging from pharmaceuticals to natural remedies. 

CBD-infused gummies make it easier to fall asleep

Today, we’ll show you why CBD gummies are a better choice for quality sleep and teach you how to take them. 

But before we begin, you might question the legality of CBD.

In the US, hemp-based CBD is legal at the federal level, although each state has its own rules.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at CBD gummies.

Why Take CBD Gummies For Peaceful Sleep

CBD gummies contain cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical that helps with insomnia, anxiety, pain relief, and REM sleep behavior disorder. 

packed with CBD, sleep gummies are a natural sleep aid

There are numerous ways to ingest cannabidiol, such as smoking it, cooking with it, or using it in tinctures, but we think gummies (such as our CBD Gummies) are the best way of taking CBD. 

Why?

  • They taste like candy.
  • There’s no mess or fuss that sometimes comes from smoking.
  • They contain a controlled dose of CBD (our Dad Grass gummies contain 27.5 mg of CBD per gummy).

Let's take a look at how CBD can help with 3 common problems that contribute to having a poor night’s sleep.

CBD For Anxiety

Having anxiety and overthinking at night can cause insomnia. 

However, in a 2019 study, 72 adults living with anxiety were given 25mg of CBD a day (if they’d been given Dad Grass CBD Gummies, that would have been one gummy a day). Within the first month, almost 80% of the participants' anxiety scores decreased and remained that way for the duration they were taking CBD.

In other words, by mitigating anxiety, the chance of a peaceful sleep increases.

CBD For Pain

Pain and discomfort is another factor contributing to interrupted sleep. 

Clinical trials on mice have shown CBD for pain relief to be effective. However, more research on humans needs to be done to prove this claim with certainty.

That said, celebrities such as Morgan Freeman and Lady Gaga have revealed that CBD helps them manage the pain they both experience from fibromyalgia. 

In short, pain relief can go a long way in restoring sleep quality, and CBD might just be able to offer that.

REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

REM Sleep Behavior Disorder is common in older people living with neurodegenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. 

During the REM stage of sleep, people with this disorder verbalize and make aggressive movements, causing them to wake up disoriented.

Like with pain relief, more research needs to be done, but one trial on four patients living with Parkinson’s showed promise. Before the study, the patients reported instances of the disorder occurring 2–7 times a week, and after taking CBD, these were reduced to 0–1 times a week only.

While this all sounds great, you might wonder how CBD compares with sleeping pills.

CBD Vs. Sleeping Pills

Many people take prescription sleeping pills to help get a better night’s rest. However, there are side effects from taking sleeping pills to consider.

prescription pills might not be the best way to get a restful sleep

Mayo Clinic suggests that while some prescription sleep aids can lead to dependence, they have a range of other side effects. The table below compares the possible side effects of CBD and prescription sleeping pills.

As you can see, while both CBD and sleeping pills share four mild side effects, sleeping pills can cause more severe problems.

Side effects from CBD are mild and might only occur from over-consumption. 

For example, Dad Grass CBD Gummies have a controlled dose in each gummy, making side effects more unlikely.

How To Take CBD Gummies For Sleep

If you’re new to the CBD gummy world, our Authentic Beginners Guide to Weed Gummies will get you started.

However, you might wonder, how many CBD gummies should you take for better sleep?

The correct dose of sleep gummies is affected by age, sex, body weight, and metabolism.

Many experts suggest 25–75 mg is the critical range for sleep. Always start at the lowest range and gradually increase dosage if you’re not getting the expected results.

The best CBD gummies for sleep will contain the proper amount to make it easy to manage your dosage. 

For example, Dad Grass Nighttime gummies contain 27.5mg of CBD in each edible. We recommend starting with either half or one gummy the first time. If after 30 minutes you don’t feel like you could fall asleep, you could take another.

Can You Take CBD Gummies For Sleep On An Empty Stomach?

Yes, you can, and nothing terrible will happen; it may just take longer for the CBD to get absorbed.

However, if you already have something in your stomach, CBD has something to connect with and is absorbed faster.  

You can pair CBD with certain foods for the best results. High oil-based food helps CBD get absorbed faster. Pick from this list for a quicker result:

  • Avocado
  • Fish
  • Emulsified fats (such as those found in chocolate or mayonnaise)
  • Nuts
  • Oils: Olive, Sesame, MCT & Coconut

You should also keep a sleep diary. Take note of how many gummies work for you, and stick to that dose. 

You can take CBD gummies for sleep every day.

CBD And Drug Interactions

If you’re taking prescribed medication, discuss with your doctor if you can combine CBD with them. 

Many pharmaceuticals get broken down by enzymes in your liver. So does CBD. Because pharmaceuticals and CBD share these enzymes, one might cause the other not to be as effective.

People taking any of these medications should talk to a medical professional first:

  • Thyroid medications
  • Blood thinners
  • Heart rhythm medication

  • We’re not saying that you can’t combine them. But based on the dosage and what they’re used for, it’s best to double-check first. 

    What Else Helps With Sleep? Introducing CBN

    With all of this CBD excitement, we’ve hardly had the chance to touch upon CBN. Let’s quickly explore it now, and discuss how it may also help you with sleep.

    What Is CBN?

    CBN is otherwise known as cannabinol, and it’s a cannabinoid that targets your CB1 and CB2 receptors

    Fact: CB1 receptors are located all throughout your body — including your brain. Meanwhile, CB2 receptors are located in your gastrointestinal and immune system. 

    According to studies, by targeting these receptors, CBN has shown promising results in terms of pain relief (especially when regarding chronic pain). With better pain relief, comes better sleep. 

    Yet, what about CBN itself? Does CBN help with sleep at a scientific level? Unfortunately, more research on this needs to be done, but studies do suggest it reduces the time it takes to fall asleep.

    The results are even more promising when CBN is paired with CBD, which is why we put together our Mini Nightime formula. It contains 525 MG of CBD alongside 75 MG CBN per 30ML bottle, and it can help you get a better night sleep. That’s according to Rebecca, anyway:


    “I battle chronic insomnia and this tincture has helped me get to sleep and stay asleep throughout the night. The quality of my sleep has improved for the better.” — Rebecca H, Verified Buyer

    Why Choose Dad Grass Gummies?

    The CBD gummy market is enormous. The challenge with some CBD gummies is that they’re all made in different ways and, sometimes, with unknown ingredients.

    We spent two years researching — including sampling — other brands’ CBD gummies to see what they’re like. What we learned is that CBD edibles vary so much. 

    We discovered a wide range of issues; they all seemed to be:

    • Too strong
    • Not strong enough
    • Unpredictable
    • Gross tasting
    • Filled with weird ingredients

    So we set about making ours the best CBD gummies we possibly could. Compared to what the others do, we’re proud of what we’ve come up with.

    What Goes Into The Best CBD Gummies?

    For starters, the best CBD gummies are high in cannabidiol; each CBD gummy contains 17.5mg and 2.5mg of CBN. So you don’t get that head buzz; they have less than 0.3% THC.

    We tasted some icky gummies in our research. To combat that ickiness, our CBD gummies are made from premium ingredients. The flavors come from natural fruit, and each gummy is dusted with slightly sour sugar for that extra taste blast.

    Moreover, our gummies are all-natural, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. 

    Dad Grass Sleep Nighttime Gummies

    There’s nothing unpredictable about the results, either. The sleepy effects will kick in around 30 minutes after taking the gummy. 

    We also partnered with Vertosa, who use nanotech technology to create smooth and fast-acting hemp oil emulsions — delivering CBD goodness to you quickly and effectively.

    Getting a good night’s rest is more about dealing with the causes rather than forcing sleep. 

    Full-spectrum CBD gummies are ideal at helping, as that’s just what they do. Loss of sleep due to anxiety, pain, and sleep disruptions could be a thing of the past.

    Why not consider buying our Dad Grass CBD gummies trio pack, so you’re covered night and day?
