Do you sometimes have trouble falling asleep at night? Or maybe you drift off to sleep with no issues, but you wake up a lot throughout the night. In either case, you might be looking for a sleep aid you can use without concern of addiction. CBD and melatonin are two good options. In fact, you can even find CBD and melatonin softgels that combine these two active ingredients.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind if you do decide to try CBD and melatonin softgels.
1. Try CBD and melatonin alone, first.
Many people do find that the combination of CBD and melatonin works well for them. But you might be someone who finds either CBD or melatonin does the trick better than using both together. So, before you try a combination soft gel, try CBD alone — and also try melatonin alone. Once you are familiar with how both of these substances make you feel, then you can take them together in a softgel if you so choose.
2. Take the softgel about an hour before bedtime.
If you take the softgel and then crawl directly into bed, you may still toss and turn for a while before the substances start to kick in. This may get you worked up and anxious so you have trouble falling asleep even after the CBD and melatonin kick in. So, try taking the softgel about an hour before you actually get into bed. This way, you will actually feel tired and ready to sleep as soon as you get in bed. Over time, your body will learn that getting into bed means sleep, and you'll likely have an easier time drifting off, even without the medication.
3. Start with a low dose.
Both CBD and melatonin are substances that you can take varying doses of. Some people need more CBD than others. Some people need more melatonin than others. To ensure you don't take more than you need and end up overly groggy, start with a low dose. In most cases, that's going to be one softgel. If that does not work, then you can increase your dose, often to two softgels.
If you follow the tips above, you should have a better experience when using CBD and melatonin softgels. There are several brands on the market to try, so if one is not quite right for you, then you can move on to another.
