CBD Gummies for Sleep
There is good evidence that CBD may help boost mood and improve sleep! This is good news for those of us who toss and turn at night and have a hard time getting to sleep. You can also get your rest needs easily met by taking CBD gummies at night. They’re soft, chewy, and, like our CBD gummies, come in various delicious flavors.
Since CBD was legalized after The Farm Bill Act was passed in 2018, manufacturers have bottled and sold CBD in various ways. Some items include:
- CBD oil
- CBD edibles
CBD gummies are one of the latest and most popular methods to receive your CBD dosage.
Keep reading to learn how CBD gummies provide better sleep and overall rest. Also, we will cover what dosage you should consider taking before falling asleep.
What Are CBD Gummies?
CBD gummies or CBD-infused edibles are usually made with a carrier oil, such as hemp or coconut oil, and other ingredients. Our gummies, for example, contain 99% pure CBD and are dairy and gluten-free.
The compound CBD is one of two primary ingredients found in Cannabis, the other being THC. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive components, meaning you won’t get high after taking it. This is also good for workers who get drug tested, THC-free CBD gummies will not show up on a drug test, but will provide you maximum relief.
CBD works by interacting with your ECS, known as your Endocannabinoid System. The ECS is a neuro system present in all animals and responsible for regulating biological functions like sleep, mood, and overall wellbeing.
Once absorbed, CBD provides several benefits besides better sleep. Until recently, you had to consume THC with CBD to gain the full effects of the cannabis plant. Unfortunately, THC can cause anxiety, which can develop into insomnia - which is definitely not ideal for a good night’s sleep.
Eden’s Herbals uses CO2 extraction for our gummies, which preserves the CBD and other vital ingredients that promote sleep. Read on to see what other benefits you’ll receive besides restful sleep.
CBD Gummy Benefits
CBD is being studied extensively as you read. Congress recently passed new legislation that promotes massive studies into CBD’s potential. CBD shows tremendous promise in helping treat the following diseases:
- Anxiety: In one study, scientists found that regular CBD usage reduced symptoms in patients with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), PTSD, and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
- Addiction Issues: In a study involving tobacco use, preliminary data suggested test subjects showed a decrease in addictive behavior after taking CBD.
- Skin Disorders: Recent studies suggest CBD may help relieve itching and redness associated with eczema, helping sufferers sleep better at night.
- Neuropathic Pain: A 2012 study examined test subjects with chronic pain. Scientists determined that cannabinoids made “ideal” candidates for treating neuropathic and chronic pain. Because of its potential to treat pain, CBD may also help those with fibromyalgia sleep better.
CBD Gummies for Sleep: What Researchers Say
CBD helps you sleep by enhancing mood and providing a sense of calmness. When combined with THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), preliminary studies suggest that CBD improves long-term sleep quality. A 2014 review on the effects of CBD found that chronic sleep apnea patients showed improvement after taking synthetic cannabinoids.
Scientists found sleep-affected patients’ serotonin levels increased after a CBD regimen. Although more studies are forthcoming, the 2014 study also suggested CBD helps with excessive daytime sleepiness and REM sleep disorders.
CBD Gummies and Your ECS
CBD gummies are infused with CBD, an alternative to CBD oil or CBD creams. Although your absorption rates may differ with CBD gummies, their effect is the same. CBD gummies work by interacting with your ECS (Endocannabinoid System).
After around 30 minutes of ingestion, CBD gummies send signals to your ECS. Once these receptors work with the CBD you will start to reap the benefits, quickly! Including better sleep and a more relaxed feeling.
Not only does CBD help with sleep it also helps with:
- aches and cramps
With the recent passage of the Cannabidiol and Marijuana Research Expansion Act, scientists will have greater access to funding to study CBD’s vast potential.
CBD Gummies vs. CBD Oil: Which is Best?
Unlike gummies, CBD oil works immediately. You’ll notice the effects right away by applying a few drops under your tongue (the optimal delivery method). CBD gummies interact with your digestive system before seeing the effects, taking 30 minutes to one hour.
CBD oil can also be used and taken in other ways as well. It can be used as a topical for skin irriatation when applied to the skin, but most people will take CBD oil orally through coffee or tea! Another great bonus of CBD oil is that you can add it to just about anything, from DIY skin care products, to meals and desserts!

CBD Gummy Dosage for Sleep
If you’re using CBD gummies for sleep, consider using them only at bedtime. Because CBD provides so many other potential benefits, you might notice a better result by taking them only at night. Your body may respond better because it generally takes around 30 minutes for the effects to kick in.
Take one gummy the first night and see how you feel, generally, the starting dose is between 20mg and 40mg. If you think you need more, increase your dosage each night until you find the optimal dose. Our Eve’s Sour Apple comes in 1200mg per bag servings and contains 60mg per gummy.
Do CBD Gummies Make You High?
No, CBD gummies won’t make you high, given you purchase the right CBD from a reputable business. CBD gummies, like ours, are made with 99% pure CBD, making them potent and reliable. Even if you take a full-spectrum CBD product, there’s too little THC to cause any psychedelic effect.
For CBD to be sold, it must contain less than 0.3% THC, all CBD should be lab tested and have a Certificate of analysis for proof. The reason some CBD, like full-spectrum, has THC is what’s known as the ‘entourage effect.’
Cannabis, the mother plant of CBD, and THC contain over 100 other “minor” compounds. When taken all together, it’s thought that these compounds, including small amounts of THC, work in concert together. Using both compounds from the hemp plant will provide you maximum relief.
Are CBD Gummies Safe?
Yes. The World Health Organization says CBD is safe and well-tolerated. Eden’s Herbals extracts all of our CBD from American-grown organic hemp. We also use a cutting-edge CO2 extraction process that removes residues and solvents from our final product.
If you’re purchasing CBD gummies or full-spectrum CBD gummies, the best bet is to look for companies that provide a lab certificate, better known as a COA. This important document ensures quality and potency. You can find our THC-Free and Full-Spectrum lab reports by clicking here.
You'll want to make sure to buy only from reputable CBD companies, such as Eden's Herbals. Check to be clear they use organic hemp, which is free of harmful pesticides.
