When trying a new supplement for the first time, most people want to know whether it will make them feel energized or sleepy. So, does CBD make you tired? Should you take it during the day or before bed?
Does CBD Make You Tired?
The answer to this question is going to vary depending on each individual person as well as what kind of CBD you are taking. Pure CBD isolate, Full-spectrum CBD, and Broad-spectrum CBD may have slightly different effects when it comes to feeling sleepy.
Pure CBD Isolate
CBD isolate contains 0% THC, the component that many people attribute to the sleepy feeling that may occur from eating THC edibles or smoking marijuana. In fact, CBD isolate contains 99.9% CBD so the flavonoids, terpenes, and other compounds are also removed, leaving just CBD behind. Consuming pure CBD is not likely to create a sleepy feeling.
Broad-spectrum CBD does not remove all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds like CBD isolate. It leaves in a “broad spectrum” of these compounds, however, the THC is still removed, so broad-spectrum CBD contains 0% THC. Without THC, broad-spectrum CBD is not likely to make you feel tired.
Full-spectrum CBD is similar to broad-spectrum CBD, but it DOES contain up to 0.3% THC. Even though there is a small amount of THC in full-spectrum CBD, you won’t feel “high” as if you consumed THC, though it will support the “entourage effect”, allowing the cannabinoids to work together more efficiently in your body. Since full-spectrum CBD does have a small amount of THC, some people may prefer to take it before bed.
If CBD Makes You Feel Sleepy During the Day
Every person is different, so if you find that CBD makes you tired during the day, you can start taking it at night. If you still want to take it during the day, try spacing out your dosage throughout the day rather than taking it all at once. For example, if you know that 15mg of CBD works best for you, take 5mg when you wake up, 5mg, mid-morning, and 5mg after lunch. You can play around with the timing to find what is going to work best for your body.
