Cannabis Inhaler Helps Patients Sleep

medical

A new product has recently been announced that could revolutionize the way people get a good night’s sleep: a cannabis inhaler. One dose is said to put users into a nice, deep sleep within ten minutes. This is far quicker than most sleep aids and according to the creators and scientists alike, it’s much safer.

The product, called ICANsleep, is produced in a joint venture between Israel-based company ICAN and CannRx, a company based in the United States. The goal of the product is to help those suffering from insomnia or other sleep disorders.

Much like traditional inhalers, the product puts out a small burst of medication. Not enough to make you feel high, just enough to make you feel sleepy. There’s about one fourth the amount of THC as is in a joint.

Human trials have begun on 50 participants but the product is currently available for purchase in Israel and California already. It costs around $130 right now and could soon be available in Britain.

The product will offer a healthier alternative to pharmaceutical sleep aids which have been found to increase risk of stroke, cause daytime drowsiness, increase risk of infection, and even lead to a higher mortality risk. Millions of people use these pills everyday, even with the added risks.

According to CEO of ICAN Saul Kaye, “Insomnia is mostly an anxiety disorder, and cannabis can be very effective at reducing anxiety. Also, it does not leave you feeling like you have a hangover.” Kaye himself suffers from anxiety and wants to help others who do as well.

The proof that cannabis helps with sleep and anxiety is nothing new. It’s been used to calm anxiety and help people sleep across cultures for thousands of years. The ICANsleep inhaler is just a modern, convenient way for patients to get the medicine they need. It just shows the leaps and bounds the cannabis industry is growing by each day.

    A fourth the amount of THC as is in a joint will not get you high? I must really be a lightweight.
