Study Shows The Effectiveness Of CBD For Sleep Including Improved Sleep Quality And Treatment Of Insomnia

Insomnia was one of the most common conditions mentioned by the survey’s respondents. A good percentage of them reported that CBD treated their conditions very well or moderately well on its own while about 400 participants mentioned that CBD treated their conditions well in combination with other medication.

The researchers found that CBD increased the duration of sleep, especially in the patients who were given the highest 160 mg dose.
