Cannabidiol, or CBD, has become an incredibly popular natural and holistic way to overcome a variety of ailments. From pain management to appetite to eliminating insomnia and anxiety, people are turning to CBD products as an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.

CBD works at the molecular level to help your body maintain homeostasis. Many systems within our bodies rely on this balance to maintain healthy functions including mood, appetite, and hormones. When our body’s natural homeostasis becomes unbalanced, we experience symptoms such as mood swings, insomnia, loss of appetite, pain, depression, and more.

Many people are exploring the positive effects of CBD and the ways it promotes relaxation, calm, and peace to help combat insomnia and anxiety. Interested in learning more? Here are a few of the more common questions regarding CBD for sleep and anxiety.


The short answer is: yes. However, CBD can have a much different effect for some people at different doses. Lower doses help to promote relaxation and a calm mood. This helps some people to be able to relax enough to fall asleep. Higher doses can cause drowsiness. We suggest starting with the lowest dose and increasing it slowly over time to determine what works best for you.

CBD also helps with issues such as pain management and depression. So, CBD can help both with the root causes of insomnia as well as with some of the side effects of other ailments that may make sleep difficult such as pain or depression.

Yes! CBD works with the nervous system to help induce a calmer mood. Oftentimes, CBD is used to reduce the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses. Studies have shown that over three quarters of participants who used CBD experienced less anxiety within one month. In addition to helping to elevate moods and combatting mental illness, anxiety works to help people sleep better, too. Overall, just as less anxiety can help you sleep better, more sleep can also reduce anxiety. It works hand in hand with other systems in your body so your mood and sleep function optimally.

Insomnia is a condition that makes it hard for people to fall and stay asleep. This impacts many areas of a person’s life, including their alertness, mood, ability to concentrate, and more.

CBD contains molecules called cannabinoids which work in similar ways to your body’s naturally produced endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are responsible for maintaining homeostasis across a variety of systems in your body. By boosting cannabinoids in your body, you are also boosting your body’s ability to maintain homeostasis. This is why CBD can have such positive effects all over the body.

CBD also affects your serotonin system. Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps to stabilize your mood, produce feelings of well-being, satisfaction, and happiness.

Using CBD for sleep works in all kinds of ways. As previously mentioned, it promotes relaxation and reduces anxiety which leads to better sleep. Studies have also shown that CBD has positive effects on people with REM disorders. Symptoms of their disorder decreased after taking CBD.


This is a tricky question, because CBD comes in such a wide range of products with a variety of dosages. In general, we suggest taking the smallest dosage or amount that you can for a week or two. Keep track of how you are feeling, then increase the dosage in small increments across a few more weeks until you arrive at the right amount that helps you feel relaxed.

More specifically, it is important to consider the best product for promoting relaxation. We suggest checking out our UniCanna Spray. This is made from hemp resin and helps to relieve milder forms of insomnia. One to two times daily, you spray it under your tongue, hold it there for a few minutes, then swallow.

Whether you use a sublingual, spray, oil, supplement, gummy, or other CBD product, be sure you do not exceed the recommended daily amount.

What kind of CBD product should I use for my insomnia or anxiety?

There are lots of different CBD products on the market that can be used to help combat insomnia or anxiety.

The best CBD for sleep is a product that you can take right before bed and that is fast acting. For example, the UniCanna CBD spray that we mention above is a great choice for that. It is also a good option if you want to use CBD topically.

Another great CBD product for anxiety is CBD Hemp Resin. This works similarly to the spray in that you squeeze a small amount into your mouth and keep it under your tongue for two to five minutes, then swallow. This is a more concentrated dose which means a little goes a long way, and the effects will be felt more quickly.

CBD is a holistic option to address a variety of issues throughout the body beyond insomnia and anxiety. Hemp spray can be used to protect the immune system from harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites. It can also treat skin issues and dermatitis. Hemp Resin is also a great preventative measure against diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and arthritis. It can also help ease some of the symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis.
