Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep? You’re not alone! 1 in 2 adults have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep AND 1 in 5 adults say that the sleep they are getting is not refreshing. Sleep problems are often caused by factors like too much sedentary time during the day, chronic stress, and poor mental health. A sleep method you may not have thought of trying is weed! Follow along as we break down the best edibles for sleep.
Is CBD Oil Effective for Sleep?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of the major compounds found in weed. Using CBD oil for sleep is great because it’s non-intoxicating and provides relaxation and pain relief, two components that are much needed for a healthy rest. Taking CBD oil at night has been proven through research to be beneficial for anxiety, pain, and sleep. Read this HuffPost columnist’s experience with insomnia and how she overcame it using CBD.
Bedtime CBD Snacks
CBD can be taken in oil form, which can be directly administered by placing a few drops under your tongue. CBD gummies and chocolate have also become a favourite bedtime snack over the past few years. Perhaps a little more surprising, CBD-infused coffee is also becoming more popular. While it seems like coffee wouldn’t be the best edible for sleep, the mixture of weed and coffee actually lessens the negative side effects, like anxiety with drinking coffee alone.
