Sheep, Count your Days.
March is National Sleep Awareness Month and, let’s face it, no one’s getting enough sleep. A full eight hours begins to feel like a fantasy after a while. You’re more likely to climb Everest than wake up well-rested.
But sleep is so important to our physical and mental wellbeing. Sleep is the time where our bodies recharge and recover as our minds produce strange dreams about giving speeches in your underwear. There’s about a thousand solutions for getting a better night’s sleep out there: temperature-controlled mattresses, hypnosis, warm milk, the list goes on. We at Insa have a better one.
You guessed it: cannabis.
Cannabis has been shown to be very effective when a good night of sleep is your target. Both THC and CBD contain sedative elements that can act as a sleep aid along with calming a restless body and mind. However, cannabis for sleep is not one-size-fits-all. There are a lot of factors that affect sleep and different cannabis products will have different effects on everyone. Luckily, Insa has products of all kinds for people for all real lives needs.
Here’s what we recommend for those looking to count less sheep and get more sleep!
Sour. Sweet. Asleep.
For those looking to start using cannabis as a sleep aid, we recommend Insa’s Black Cherry Sleepy Drops. These edibles are made with real fruit and lightly dusted with sugar for a sweet flavorful bite. But, don’t think that these will cause a sugar rush, each drop contains 5mg of THC per piece in combination with melatonin to help you get to sleep and get a full night’s sleep.
Even Sweeter Dreams
Insa’s newest addition to its collection of sleep-centric edibles is the Milk Chocolate Sleepy Bar. Made with decadent European milk chocolate and infused with 5mg THC this bar also has 3mg of melatonin, a natural hormone that plays an important role in your sleep. High quality chocolate and higher quality cannabis make this an excellent treat before bedtime. Pairs best with warm milk and the occasional nightcap.
Looking for More Than Midnight Snacks?
Edibles are a great option for people looking to stay asleep. But if you have trouble falling asleep, other options may be faster-acting and a better way to get you snoozing.
Here are some Insa strains that people have reported lull them off quite well:
- Biscotti Super Fire: This is an Indica-dominant strain. Indica’s relaxed, calming, body high has been reported to be a great sleep aid.
- Northern Lights: Those with vaporizers may enjoy this in a cartridge. Its 1:1 THC to CBD ratio makes it a well-balanced product that’s known to be a great for those looking for a place to start when it comes to cannabis for sleep.
- Cannatonic: Some customers have reported that they don’t enjoy the physical effects of THC before bed. For you we recommend a CBD heavy strain like Cannatonic. CBD often has subtler effects when compared to THC.
- Banana Kush: On the other hand, some of our customers have told us that they only feel the effects of THC and that CBD isn’t strong enough. So, we recommend the THC-heavy Banana Kush to provide those psychoactive effects.
Like all things cannabis, no two people will have the same experience. If you’re looking to start using cannabis as a sleep aid, start with light effects and low dosage. Then, work your way up until you find something effective for you. If you can, come into any of our retail stores and our expert associates can help you take those first steps towards Dreamland.
