It could influence sleep and gastrointestinal issues

There’s mixed evidence on CBD and gastrointestinal issues, with one study suggesting the compound might help treat people with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) by limiting acid reflux. When taking high doses or experiencing an adverse reaction to CBD, some side effects reported include nausea and diarrhea.

When it comes to sleep, the data is interesting since it appears the compound helps patients sleep better when they also suffer from anxiety or stress. By treating these symptoms, CBD might indirectly help a person get better sleep and battle periodic bouts of insomnia.
