Does CBD Make You Sleepy? (Aaron Cadena, Medium)

The question that’s been bothering many of us: “can I take CBD during the day and still function well without wanting to fall asleep every 5 mins?”

Aaron Cadena answers this question very precisely, in a manner that a non-scientist will understand (because no one has time to google what every second word of an article means).

To summarize, CBD’s interaction with a human body is different than the sleeping pills or THC. The issue with insomnia is directly related to one’s stress level and a brain’s ability “to manage how we respond to stressful situations”.

“A majority of the receptors in the ECS are concentrated in the brain and the central nervous system.

Studies show that when CBD interacts with these receptors, cognitive functions improve and the brain is able to respond to stressful situations more effectively. As a result, negative behavioral output is mitigated and the stress cycle is negated.

By improving the brain’s capacity to respond to stressful situations, CBD helps alleviate current stress levels, while serving as a preventative measure against future stress.”
