CBD does not directly cause sleep, but its many studied pathways suggest that it can make it easier to fall asleep.

Many people around the world do not get the quality sleep necessary to live healthy lives. Whether because of anxiety, pain, or funky sleep patterns, they are missing out. CBD may be the answer for them! Again, perhaps because of CBD’s ability to work with the serotonin receptors. One study showed 66% of participants found it easier to get to sleep after taking CBD.

Amongst the various things CBD can do to help the body and mind, one possible benefit is its ability to lower or relieve anxiety.

CBD has shown the power to act on serotonin receptors, that special part of the brain that helps regulate mood. Another part of the brain that’s important to note is the hippocampus. In people who suffer from anxiety, typically they are found to have smaller than normal hippocampuses. CBD can help here as it promotes neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons. When these new neurons are formed, the hippocampus may benefit and increase in size.  In one study, a dosage of 300mg of CBD was seen to be the most beneficial in helping the participants manage their nerves during a public speaking events. In animals it has even shown an antidepressant effect. 

Here’s a better rundown of some of the science thought to be behind the benefits of CBD and anxiety.


CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on medications, such as opioids.

Numerous studies have been done on the efficacy of supplementing with CBD for pain relief, including arthritis, inflammation, and incision sites for surgery. A huge chunk of what we consider ‘pain’ is inflammation and swelling, whether in joints or wound sites. With CBD’s help, the ECS can help your body manage the inflammation and decrease the amount of ‘pain’ your body is signaling.


Focus is a state of arousal, arousal is in part controlled by the limbic system of the brain, which CBD has been shown to regulate.

Since CBD supports your body’s various regulatory systems, CBD can have a range of positive effects, all of which can support an environment and mindset for focus. The processes in the brain and body effecting focus that CBD acts on include anxiety and mood. Read more about how CBD can help focus.
