Why Does CBD Oil Make Me Tired? The Reasons Behind It

CBD is a compound that comes from the cannabis plant. Over the years, it has been used as medicine to provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety and more. In this article, you’ll learn some of the reasons why CBD oil may make you tired.

The reason CBD can make you fall asleep or feel tired is because it binds to your endocannabinoid system. CBD may be able to help with insomnia by working on the CB1 receptor in our brain that regulates our sleep cycles and awakenings (this is different from THC which binds to CB1 in a very different way).

Another reason why you might feel tired after taking CBD is that you’re about to enter a period of your life when sleep becomes difficult. With age, we have fewer melatonin receptors so it’s harder for us to fall asleep and stay asleep (our melatonin levels are already lower than a young person). If you have just reached the right age, sleep problems might become more severe. An additional factor is that your brain starts producing less of its own cannabinoids as you get older (this may be the result of low receptor numbers). Therefore you may need more cannabinoids to feel good.

This is an issue of the endocannabinoid system which controls our sleep and wakefulness. CBD may have some effect on it, possibly acting in a different way from other cannabinoids. The difference is that while most cannabinoids slow down the parts of our brain that control wakefulness, CB1 receptors may inhibit the “off” switch for your brain and body so you won’t feel sleepy or be able to get to sleep until a certain level of activation (beyond baseline). You may need to consume more cannabinoids to do this.

With age, our sleep quality may become worse because of a problem with the endocannabinoid system which is one of the reasons why CBD might help.

However, CBD doesn’t have the same effect on all people. This is because different people may have different cannabinoid receptors (the feeling of being tired after CBD can be caused by too much or too little activity in your endocannabinoid system). If you consume CBD every day, your body and brain might reduce cannabinoid receptors to compensate CBD’s effect. This may stop you from feeling tired from CBD.

This happens because our bodies and brains can adapt to changes like taking CBD which is another reason why we might not feel tired after consuming it every day.

That’s why it’s important to monitor how much you consume by observing how it affects you. You may also want to ask for professional feedback from a doctor or therapist who is able to see your symptoms and what changes in your body you’ve made since using CBD.

We recommend that you only take CBD to help with sleep and not every day. It’s important for your brain and body to know when it’s okay for other things like working or exercising.

Sleep disorders are widely seen as comorbidities of depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder which have themselves been associated with the use of cannabis. The US National Comorbidity Survey found a consistent relationship between the use of cannabis and sleep problems.

In 2014, the journal BMC Medicine published a study which examined the evidence for prescribing CBD to help with sleep disorders in patients who are taking other drugs. Although some studies suggested it was not effective, the majority of trials suggested that CBD was safe and well-tolerated as a co-medication.

We recommend that you only take CBD to help with sleep and not every day. It’s important for your brain and body to know when it’s okay for other things like working or exercising.

If you have any questions about CBD feel free to ask them below or in the comments. We try our best to respond as quickly as possible.

CBD can make you feel so sleepy because it acts on your endocannabinoid system in the same way that other cannabinoids do (except most cannabinoids slow down parts of your brain while CB1 receptors do more). This means it has the same effect on your brain and body as other cannabinoids.

With age, we have fewer receptors and less activation of the endocannabinoid system. This is another reason why CBD may help with sleep problems in older people. It can provide an alternative method of activating your endocannabinoid system to keep you awake.
