Does CBD cause drowsiness? Everything you need to know

If you are looking for treatment for a variety of conditions, there are many options out there. Some of these options include prescription pills, holistic treatments, and more. These treatment options can have side effects including diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, and drowsiness. Side effects in these treatments can be caused by the combination of chemicals that make up the pills, as well as their expiration or “best by” date. Fortunately, these treatment methods are not the only ones that are available for people who struggle with them.  

As we have discussed in other blog posts, CBD is a natural chemical that comes from the Cannabis plant. This chemical is being turned into a treatment for many different types of conditions. It can be turned into pills, but it is often distributed in the form of oils, gummies, vapes, microcapsules, and others. Unfortunately, like all the prescription pills and other methods that we mentioned, CBD can have some side effects especially depending on which form you take it in. But does CBD cause drowsiness? Here is some more information for you before you decide which ZBD Bed CBD-infused products to purchase.

Does CBD cause drowsiness?

CBD as a medical treatment has only begun gaining steam within the last 10 or so years. Before that, you would likely not hear too much about the chemical in general. Naturally, there were many confusing reports out there about the chemical including if CBD gets you “high” like the Cannabis plant’s other chemical THC. But now as CBD continues to gain popularity and more medical professional validation, its few side effects are becoming more well-known.

One of the side effects of CBD use, depending on the amount used, is drowsiness. In fact, drowsiness is the most commonly reported side effect of CBD use. Just because drowsiness is common for CBD users does not mean that you are guaranteed to get it if you use the chemical. Everyone’s body is different, so it is important to take CBD at the recommended amount so that you do not experience extreme drowsiness. Once your body is used to the chemical and can accept it, you can begin to experiment with a higher amount and may experience less side effects.

It has also been debated that the effect of drowsiness caused by CBD is often confused with the calming and relaxing effects that the chemical provides. When you use CBD, your nervous system calms down which allows you to relax and let go of your stress and anxiety. Some people may not be used to this relaxed feeling and may think that they are tired instead of simply relaxed. Regardless, more research is required to further prove if CBD causes drowsiness, relaxation, or a mix of the two.

Despite the fact that CBD can cause drowsiness in certain users, the chemical is also known to promote wakefulness. There are studies that back this point up, which you are able to read more about here. More research is needed, but it is a promising sign for those that want to test out CBD but are afraid of being too drowsy to complete daily responsibilities.
