Why did the man keep running around his bed? To catch up on his sleep! As corny as this pun is, getting a refreshing night of sleep is often wishful thinking. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults get between 7-9 hours of sleep. Unfortunately, getting that amount of sleep can feel like an impossible goal. Today’s adults are constantly dealing with copious amounts of stress, are plagued with mental health issues, and are bombarded with a seemingly endless list of daily tasks. If you find yourself nodding in agreement and thinking, “That’s me!”, you may be interested to know that certain cannabinoids are quite effective in helping you catch some much-need rest. Keep reading to find out which ones, how they work naturally with your body, and products that incorporate them.
Cannabinoids? What Are Those?
The cannabis plant contains over one hundred compounds that are called “cannabinoids.” These cannabinoids can be either psychoactive (Delta-8 THC, HHC, Delta-9 THC, THC-O, and others) or non-psychoactive (CBD, CBG, CBN, and more). You may already be familiar with some of these, but as long as these cannabinoids are derived from federally legal hemp, they are considered legal according to the 2018 Agricultural Act. Each cannabinoid has a variety of uses, which we explain in great detail throughout several articles. However, in this article, we’ll be exploring two cannabinoids that are especially useful for getting a good night’s sleep.
Which Cannabinoids Are Useful For Sleep?
Certain studies have shown the efficacy of using cannabinoids for sleep, specifically both CBD, THC, and CBN. Let’s take a closer look at how these cannabinoids work in relation to helping you unwind to the point where you can finally fall asleep.
- Cannabidiol (CBD) in particular has shown promise in relation to REM sleep issues as well as those who struggle greatly with feeling sleepiness during the day, which in turn can lead to issues falling asleep at night. CBD has also shown effectiveness in those who struggle with insomnia as it can help calm those with uneasiness and restless brain activity both prior to and during sleep.
- THC has a distinctive side effect of making the user drowsy and couch-locked, which in turn can make falling asleep much easier. Yet THC comes with a heady high, which some users report feeling more energetic and aware of their surroundings and thus are unable to fall asleep despite feeling an unwillingness to move around.
- Lastly, CBN is touted as being more effective than CBD in terms of feeling more relaxed. CBN is not psychoactive, meaning you won’t get high after consuming it, but it carries a significant feeling of drowsiness. Some manufacturers recommend taking a single dose, waiting anywhere from 30-180 minutes, and then consuming a second dose if no changes are detected. We’ll be doing a more in-depth article on this affectionately-named “sleep cannabinoid” but just know that CBN is showing great promise in the cannabis industry and is becoming more readily available in products throughout the industry.
