CBD In The Morning Vs. At Night

We get asked regularly about the best time of day to use CBD: first thing in the morning or at night before bed? Since CBD affects everyone differently, there really isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. So to figure out the answer to your question, we at Sprightly suggest considering these three factors to determine what time of day is best for you: Reasons for taking CBD, the dosage you plan to take, and the type of CBD product you are planning to use. The main thing to remember is that everyone will react differently to our CBD products - what gets one person to sleep may help another maintain energy throughout the day. With that being said, you should take the time to experiment with your products and dosage to learn the best time of day for you to use CBD. 

Reasons For Taking CBD

Peoples’ reasoning for taking CBD ranges from treating specific symptoms like seizures and acne, to regulating moods, appetite, and more. What time of day you take CBD should largely be based on the reasons you are taking it in the first place. If your reason for taking CBD is to help with anxiety, then it would be best to take full spectrum hemp oil first thing in the morning to have it in your system all day to ease your worries. However, if you are taking CBD to promote better sleep, then taking it at night would make sense to help turn your brain off to get an uninterrupted, peaceful night of rest.


Each of our Sprightly broad and full spectrum hemp oils, as well as our salve, includes a serving size or daily dose suggestion. However, here too it is important to experiment and find what works best for you. For instance, we recommend starting with 1ml of our regular strength tincture per day, and for some of our customers, whether taken in the morning or evening, this feels right. However, some people prefer to take half of the suggested serving in the morning and the other half in the evening, or they prefer to double the suggested dose by taking one full serving in the morning and then another full serving at night before bed. Again, it is all about what works best for you to get the most out of our products!

Product Choice

The type of product you are using will also be a big factor when deciding what time you should use CBD. For customers using our broad and full spectrum hemp oils, we recommend 1ml of tincture per day to start with. Most consumers choose to take this dose in the morning, but if you feel like it is too much at once or if it wears off before you want it too, you can always split the dose in half or double up, taking one in the morning and one at night. When using our salve, it is your preference of when you want to apply it. With this product, the CBD will stay in the tissue locally to where it is applied so you do not need to worry about overuse. Last but certainly not least, gummies! We will be launching our CBD raspberry gummies soon -  they will be delicious to consume any time of day, so the choice is yours!


Always remember that everyone’s journey with CBD is different, so experimenting with your products and dosage is the best way to learn the best time of day for you to use your Sprightly products.
