Even though my apnea’s and hour is rarely above 5 lately I still often wake up every 2 hours. I am wondering about trying cbd oil to see if that helps. Have any of you ever tried it?

I have chronic pain, there is CBD oil with THC and CBD oil without THC, I used the without THC version. At first I thought it helped me sleep, but I ran out and I have not purchased any since the lockdown. I am still sleeping fine, I don't think it works. I can recommend Melatonin which I think works great.

I ordered some cbd gummies with melatonin, no thc though. If nothing else maybe it will help with the anxiousness I sometimes get when I first put the mask on until I get comfortable with it.

A month ago I did a ton of research into this. I am now a 100% fan of CDB oil.

I had horrible knee pains out of no where, have had back pains for decades. Advil usually does my back 100%, but nothing over the counter was helping with my knee pain, even sitting still I was in pain. Got some 25 MG CBD capsules locally. Not sure on the sleep directly, but I think it worked miracles on me knees. 100% pain free on my left and 70% gone in my right, and my back rarely hurts. Another interesting thing is I have had a severe cough for years, not my lungs but an irritation in my esophagus from post nasal drip. I would say it eliminated 99% of my cough and while I use to always have cough drops on me, now I never need them. It primarily seems to help with inflammation and anxiety. Helping with the inflamation in my knee was why I took it, had not even thought about inflammation in my. It was about a week to a realize I had no more cough. I did a ton of research, lots people say it helps with their sleep others do not. I think eliminating my cough helped a lot with my sleep. I am not high stressed of very anxious, but lots of people say it helps with that a lot. So depending on why you cannot sleep it may or may not help, but well worth trying. Just talked about this with my Dr. this week, she said if its helping stay on it, advil is not good for long term use. So she would only say its a lot better the advil, no study to say its really effective, but no reports of it being harmful. So take it I will because it seems to be working for me. Since the cough was not even something I considered cannot attribute that to a placebo effect. Also was not thinking it would help with my back, but it did.

From my research, it is critical to know how its made, lots of products made from hemp that do not contain CBD, it comes from the leaves and flowed not the buds. Other natural remedies come from the buds. Many are sold as Hemp extract because of prior laws against CBD. Amazon will not let them list it as CBD, so they do sell it but label it as hemp extract. You would have to contact the mfg to know if it has CBD or just other extracts from hemp. Made it to hard to know what I was getting so I went elsewhere. I am using CBDistillery now seemed to be be reputable pharmacy grade practices using US hemp, so I know what I am getting. Look for coupon codes and get a big discount. You can get full spectrum that will contain trace amounts of THC, not enough to effect you at all because Hemp does not contain enough THC to do anything. Makes you wonder why Hemp was a schedule 1 drug when it has absolutely no effects on getting you high. Most used plant in the world, clothes, ropes etc etc but not in the US because it looked like pot. But the trace amounts of THC can cause you to possibly fail a drug test, so be warned. Full spectrum has THC, but not enough to effect you, you can get it with absolutely no TCH. Full Spectrum has other elements from the plant that could help you sleep as well.

Been using it for 5 weeks, cut down my advil intake to almost none, got rid of my cough, which I think lead to better sleep, could have also helped in other ways but who knows. I do think I sleep better. Do your research, make sure you are getting it from a reputable place.

BigFootBitMe, I think as you note that the right CDB oil could certainly help you get to sleep and relax you. However, CBD oil will not remedy sleep apnea. Hopefully, if you are diagnosed with SA, you have a treatment in place to address that.
