Melatonin Sleep and CBD

After seeing the possible benefits of CBD and melatonin together to promote sleep. Here are some indications regarding dosages and possible side effects.

Dosage and use of CBD

Although there is no established dosage for CBD, the most common dose for adults is 25mg to 50mg per day. This is usually a sufficient amount to manage anxiety, sleep, and mood. Certain conditions, especially those involving pain or inflammation, may require a higher recommended dose.

After discussing it with your doctor, look for a high-quality, broad-spectrum, all-natural hemp product . It is worth avoiding THC because this molecule can increase anxiety in some people. Prolonged THC consumption can also cause sleep disturbances.

Dosage and use of melatonin

We take melatonin to reset the onset of sleep when we do not respect the sleep schedule. It is also useful if normal sleep signals are not working for some reason.

Studies suggest that melatonin supplementation promotes sleep patterns in people who cross time zones.

Daily doses of between 0.5mg and 5mg taken at bedtime have shown their effectiveness, with greater effects at higher doses; doses above 5 mg do not seem to demonstrate increased benefit.

We advise you to take melatonin in sublingual form to help you sleep. It acts much more quickly and is better absorbed because it passes directly into the bloodstream. This method of administration is also ideal because it allows use shortly before bedtime and when falling asleep becomes difficult.

We also offer combined melatonin / CBD products in the form of capsules and are to be taken 30 to 60 minutes before the desired sleep time.

Melatonin Sleep: Side effects of CBD

A large majority of the population tolerates CBD very well. However, it can cause side effects often due to the lack of quality and purity of the products consumed.

Also, it is essential to purchase a high-quality product .

The most common side effect is mild sedation. As with most sedative substances, adding CBD to other sedative medications, or combining CBD with alcohol, can result in excessive sedation.

Other side effects of CBD may include:


  • the sleepiness
  • dizziness and dizziness
  • dry mouth
  • An increase in appetite
  • A drop in blood pressure

There is too little information about taking CBD during pregnancy or breastfeeding. It is therefore not recommended to consume it for pregnant women.

CBD Interactions

Side effects related to CBD use are usually the result of interactions between CBD and other medications. This is why it is essential to speak with your doctor before you start taking any supplement.

To better understand, here's how these interactions happen: CBD is broken down by the body through the same route as many medications.

If several compounds compete, what is called “concentration alteration” can occur. This means that too little or too much of the medicine remains in the body. When there is too little left, a medication may no longer work as intended. If too much is left, side effects may increase.

Melatonin Sleep: Side effects of melatonin

Melatonin is generally considered very safe, even at high doses (e.g., 10mg, although as noted previously, anything above 5mg does not appear to be helpful for sleep). Melatonin is also not habit-forming. However, anything taken regularly for sleep can become a habit that is difficult to break, even if it is not technically an addiction.

Some people who frequently take melatonin for sleep find that they begin to wake up after 3 or 4 hours.

This may be a rebound in wakefulness as the effects of melatonin wear off. This is why melatonin supplements should only be used occasionally, and while working on other reasons for inability to sleep.

Like any dietary supplement, melatonin can interact with various medications, including: anticoagulants and antiplatelets, anticonvulsants, contraceptives, diabetes medications, and immunosuppressants.
