A lot of people ask if CBD will help them sleep. Others ask if it will help them focus more, or be more alert. Studies have shown that it can do both – based on the amount of CBD that you take. Obviously, everyone’s body is different, so that amount will differ from person to person.
So, what exactly does “bi-phasic” mean? According to the Webster dictionary, biphasic simply means “having two phases”. Regarding sleep cycles, that means that a certain substance can make you more alert in certain dosages, and have a sedative effect with other dosages.
The National Institutes of Health reports that CBD is biphasic, where low concentrations stimulate activity, while higher concentrations limited activity. The Sleep Doctor also explains how CBD may help with sleep:
“CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. CBD may increase overall sleep amounts, and improve insomnia, according to research. CBD has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain.
In smaller doses, CBD stimulates alertness and reduces daytime sleepiness, which is important for daytime performance and for the strength and consistency of the sleep-wake cycle.”
So, although there isn’t recommended dosages that have been found effective for these purposes at this point, the research shows that CBD is indeed biphasic in regards to the sleep-wake cycle.
