Do transdermal CBD patches help sleep?

Do transdermal CBD patches help sleep?

Nothing makes me more jealous than hearing people talk about sleep. I’ve struggled with sleep for as long as I can remember, and I’ve tried just about everything to get more of it: Regular exercise, meditation, solid sleep hygiene, melatonin and magnesium, to name a few.


Some of it has certainly helped, but only for certain periods of time when I didn’t have much on my mind. As soon as I found something to worry about, all hope was lost. That no-tech-before-bedtime rule plus a melatonin tablet didn’t get me anywhere fast.


Perplexed doctors eventually gave me a prescription for Klonopin, a medication many clinicians assign to patients for anxiety. While it helped me fall asleep, I spent the entire next day feeling like a slightly nauseous zombie. I felt equally as terrible as I did after a night of poor sleep, so I decided it wasn’t worth it.


That’s precisely why I was intrigued when I started hearing about CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis or hemp plant that apparently helps with sleep and anxiety. I didn’t exactly get my hopes up ― after all, tons of natural remedies that worked for other people hadn’t worked for me ― but I figured it was worth a shot.


CBD can be taken in a few ways. CBD Oil is probably the most popular, but it can also be taken in capsule form, via transdermal CBD Patches or through CBD Spray. After a week of taking CBD in oil form every night, it was clear I’d stumbled across something kind of remarkable. I often slept well the first few nights of trying something new before it stopped working its magic, which I partially attribute to the placebo effect. With CBD, however, the good nights of sleep keep on coming.


Transdermal CBD patches are a particularly useful method of delivery, especially when it comes to helping to provide a sound night of sleep. This is because they consistently release a steady dose of CBD into your bloodstream across a 24-hour period. In terms of combatting struggles with sleep specifically, we have found CBD patches to be one of the most popular and successful forms.
