Anyone tried CBD/CBN Tincture for insomnia?
Has anyone had success with CBD/CBN Tincture for insomnia? If so, what dose works for you and how late can it be taken to avoid daytime drowsiness? I've had severe insomnia for over a year and wake often during the night, usually unable to go back to sleep after 5:00am. I bought some tincture that has 10mg each of CBD and CBN from hemp, but I'm afraid to try it, wondering now if it's safe. I've tried sleep restriction therapy and had a sleep study done. The only med my doctor will prescribe is Trazodone, which doesn't always work (100-150mg/night). She also suggested Melatonin. I'm only taking 2mg but since it gives me very vivid dreams I think it interferes with deep sleep.

… I have read that cbd definitely helps re sleep but I cannot take it as have narrow angle glaucoma. Originally they said cbd/thc ? brings eye pressure down… and recommended.. now the Glaucoma Society says no.. that it only brings eye pressure down for 4 hours and would mean you would have to wake up and take it through the night etc… so there goes that sleep aid idea!

CBD tincture works well for me. I take .05ml just before bed. Also, my md suggested I keep a jar of dissolvable melatonin in my nightstand, which I take in the event I wake up in the middle of the night. This combo helps me get to sleep and stay asleep. Good luck
Would you mind sharing what brand of CBD tincture you use and where it can be purchased? Also, how late in the evening can you take it w/o tiredness the next day? Thank you.
I use dr Solomon’s which is available to med mar
Patients in Florida. I use it shortly before bed and don’t wake up tired.
