Can CBD really help you sleep better?

The Doctors welcome sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus to weigh in on claims that CBD can treat sleep issues. 

Despite the claims from various CBD products, Dr. Breus warns, "It does not have a great effect on sleep by itself." He notes CBD can help treat inflammation and pain, along with helping to calm you down and he explains if one of those issues is affecting your sleep, then CBD might work.

The bottom line according to the sleep expert: "Just using CBD by itself is probably not going to help you sleep unless you have pain or anxiety." He also notes CBD with THC (which causes people to feel high) in large doses can elevate heart rate and affect someone's REM and then actually hinder sleep. 

When first dealing with a sleep issue, Dr. Breus first checks magnesium, iron, melatonin, and vitamin D levels in a patient. He tells The Doctors he takes magnesium and a vitamin D supplement and notes his sleep has improved since.

Be sure to check out Dr. Breus' new book "Energize!: Go from Dragging Ass to Kicking It in 30 Days" which is available for preorder now.
