Let’s face it, we all have problems sleeping at one time or another. For some though, every night is a new battle. Whether it is insomnia, depression, anxiety or even pain that keeps them awake, they fight night after night not only to fall asleep but to stay asleep and achieve a good night’s rest. Most of these individuals have tried a plethora of different pharmaceuticals and over the counter medications to help induce sleep, many with little to no success.
What if I were to tell you that the hempsational cannabis plant could be of assistance? I mean, after all, cannabis is known for its relaxing and often sedative effects, so it only makes sense that it could help people achieve the full night’s sleep they are eagerly searching for. Let’s look at a few things you should know about utilizing cannabis to help get a good night’s rest.
Indica Is Best
Cannabis flowers and products come in three basic types being Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid variations. Of the three, Indica strains and products that are derived from Indica strains would be the best suited for utilizing to treat things such as insomnia. This is because Indica strains tend to provide a massive relaxing effect throughout the body.
Edibles Could Seal The Deal
Smoking a joint before bed may be just what you need to fall fast asleep, however, for many, it is staying asleep that tends to be the problem. For this reason, many patients and consumers are also consuming cannabis edibles just before laying down at night due to their prolonged onset and the longevity of the effects they produce.
Other Products That May Help
Smoking and edibles aren’t the only way people are benefiting from cannabis when it comes to getting a good night’s rest. Bath bombs infused with THC and CBD are becoming all the rage not only for those who suffer from pain or inflammation but for individuals looking to hit the hay and stay for the night! While they may not knock you out for the night, they are sure to help relax your body and fight off any aches or pains that may otherwise keep you awake!
