Will hemp oil make you sleepy? After all, what's the point of taking a product to make your life better if it's going to just make you tired all the time?
The short answer is your mileage may vary, and it also tends to depend on the dosage you take as well as the manner in which you take it.
That sounds very nebulous, doesn't it? Let's grab some coffee and clear that up for you a bit.
It's true that some users report that hemp oil makes them drowsy, but others have found that it doesn't. In fact, it's a noted side effect in use of Epidiolex, the only CBD product approved for use by the FDA, though it's only approved for use in treatment of two childhood epilepsy disorders.
Exactly what your experience will be...depends mostly on you. However, there are some common themes that tend to emerge when it comes to what most users say about CBD and drowsiness.
Users who take CBD only intermittently - meaning as needed, rather than regularly - tend to report that it makes them drowsy when they take it, though not necessarily in all cases. Some people actually take it for sleep-related issues.
Users who take CBD regularly, meaning at least once per day, tend to report that they experienced drowsiness at first, until they either cut their dosage or the drowsiness gradually dissipated, though not necessarily in all cases.
In other words, the drowsiness CAN be, though this - again - depends on the user, simply not having a tolerance to CBD. That's why some people report that their drowsiness either lessened over time or with a reduction in the amount of CBD that the subject ingested.
While oil is the most common CBD product that people ingest, that's one reason why some people prefer CBD capsules to CBD oil. CBD capsules allow the user to take their CBD spread out over a longer period of time.
Some find that this method precludes the drowsiness that they experience taking a full dropper once or twice per day, and therefore experience relief from using CBD but in a steadier-state, more moderated fashion.
Again, your mileage may vary; this is just what some users have reported and what some users prefer.
Another common experience among regular consumers of CBD oil is that they'll experience drowsiness at first when they commence a CBD regimen, but that it dissipates as they adjust and develop a tolerance.
As we've mentioned, this is personal and depends on the person in question so your experience may be the same or may be different.
However, what seems to be the norm is that people who start ingesting CBD oil at least once if not twice daily is that they stop feeling any drowsiness within a week or two. After that, they begin to notice the benefits of using CBD oil without feeling drowsy, sleepy or loggy at all.
If you're taking or are contemplating using CBD oil for relief of any symptoms or complaints, make sure you're speaking with your doctor and especially if considering CBD use for a chronic condition. You do not want to take chances with your health, and you want to make sure to get an informed, educated opinion on taking CBD oil.
Also, make sure you monitor your own reaction to CBD oil if you begin taking it. We want you to get the best results for yourself.
but you can opt out at any time.
