Does Hot Chocolate Help You Sleep? 

While hot chocolate isn’t considered a sleep aid, it has a few properties that can help you sleep. Having a warm drink before bed can be calming, and relaxing your mind is critical for a good night’s rest. Not to mention the theobromine and tryptophan found in chocolate, both of which may also support a better night’s rest. So, it is natural that people turn to CBD hot chocolate for sleep. While making CBD hot cocoa before bed isn’t the most convenient way to use CBD for sleep, it can’t hurt to try.
