We’ve all been there: sleepless nights spent tossing and turning. You may have tried melatonin, or a glass of wine. But somehow, your thoughts are still racing. Was it that cup of coffee in the late afternoon? Is some inner turmoil causing you to subconsciously stay awake?
It’s common knowledge that having good sleep habits is essential, but roughly 35 percent of the U.S. population experiences insomnia at some point in their lives. A possible solution for states where cannabis is legal or descriminalized? Edibles.
Whether or not you consume cannabis recreationally, it’s been long regarded as a natural way to induce sleep. Studies have shown that of those struggling with insomnia, cannabis actually shortened the time it took them to fall asleep by an average of 30 minutes. Additionally, research shows that those who sleep on edibles are more prone to slow-wave, deep sleep, versus REM sleep.
Still, not all edibles are the same, and not all are optimal for sleeping. The most recommended for sleep and winding down are ones that contain Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN) and Terpenes. Here are five of the best gummies for sleep currently on the market (in no particular order).
After much-needed time and effort in the lab, STIIIZY unveiled its new line of CBD gummies. The 2:1 THC to CBN gummy line is specifically formulated to employ the powerful relaxing properties of cannabinol (CBN), a cannabinoid that helps improve sleep and eases anxiety and tension. Each delicious gummy delivers a long-lasting and calming high that can help combat restlessness, nausea and stress.
They come in three flavors: Crimson Berry, Midnight Berry, and White Berry.
