I have to drop some serious caveats before I go too far into this. The reason for this is that most cannabis companies that make “sleep” products use the cannabinoid CBN, or cannabinol, as an active ingredient, but the truth is that no one really knows what CBN does even though it’s advertised as a sleeping pill. Granted, a few dated studies show some sort of correlation between sleep and CBN, but if you read THIS A more recent study from the National Institutes of Health, which is probably the most evidence-based resource out there, says there just isn’t enough data to say that CBN is a sleep aid, so it’s something something we should all take with a grain of salt.
Anecdotally, after peddling this stuff behind the counter, I can tell you that the reactions we get from our customers are mixed. The lion’s share reports some level of sleepiness from the CBN products we sell, and they keep coming back for more, but a number say it doesn’t matter, or they just got high from the THC that many of these edibles also contain. , which is relaxing in itself.
So, is CBN a divine sleep aid, or is it snake oil? The jury is still out, the reason being that it is difficult for scientists to study a federally illegal drug to determine what it may or may not do. So, throughout this blog, you’ll hear me say all sorts of nebulous things that aren’t definitive, like CBN “can” help you sleep, or it “could” relax you. It’s the best I can do given what’s provable, because after all, here at The Greenery, honesty and education are far more important than the profit we might make by making statements that don’t aren’t 100% factual, like promising someone a good night’s sleep on cannabis gum.
And as a final disclaimer, it’s important to know that I’m not a doctor; nobody who works here is a doctor. We all work in a recreational marijuana dispensary and as such are not even remotely qualified to give medical advice. If you’re looking to try any type of marijuana product for a health condition, talk to your doctor.
That said, who knows? Maybe CBN is exactly what you’ve been looking for, and it might cure your restless nights… “maybe”, “possible”, you know where I’m coming from? The only way you’ll know for sure is to try this trick yourself, and we’ve got six options for all sleepy folks:
1.) Wana Fast Asleep.
I’m starting with this one first because my wife loves it and says she can’t sleep without it so at least it does something for someone. And if you’re looking for a cannabis product that could help you get some Z’s without the buzz, this one might be perfect because there’s not a whole lot of THC per serving.
In fact, when it comes to active ingredients, Wana’s Fast Asleep gummies flush down the kitchen sink with more cannabinoids than any of the others: each serving provides 10mg of CBD, 2mg of CBG, 2mg of THC (which isn’t enough to get most people high), 1mg of melatonin and 2mg of CBN.
The flavor of these gummies is “dream berry”, which is not a berry that exists, but they are still delicious. But more importantly, the cannabinoids in these gummies have been nano-encapsulated, making them water-soluble and fast-acting, so if CBN turns out to help you sleep, nothing will. faster than these erasers.
2.) 1906 Midnight Drops:
Frankly, it was the product that started it all. 1906 was way ahead of their game when they released this product a few years ago because they knew “sleep” was quickly becoming what people were looking for in cannabis relief – at the time, the most common complaint we encountered centered around “pain”, but now it seems most people are looking for rest. It’s interesting. Anyway, 1906 made the first product we sold that aimed for that, and they did it without CBN.
These capsules also contain fast-acting, water-soluble cannabinoids, and they deliver a THC:CBD ratio of 1:1, so each capsule contains 5mg of both cannabinoids. But in addition to this, these “drops”, as 1906 calls them, are also lifted with corydalis, a medicinal plant that has been used in Eastern countries for ages as a sleeping pill. And since corydalis isn’t federally illegal, there’s been all kinds of peer-reviewed studies on this stuff which you can find like THIS one or THIS a. Each of these drops contains 100 mg of corydalis.
3.) Taste Budz Blueberry Lavender Gummies:
Misinformation is an insidious thing, so right off the bat, I have to point something out: the claim that “lavender causes nightmares” is ridiculously unscientific, because it’s false. There are no studies, or even congruent anecdotal evidence for that matter, proving that herbs or essential oils made from them can induce lucid dreams in low doses, so if you believe this nonsense , all you do is miss the delicious lavender flavor of these gummies.
But back to those specific gummies, yes they are natural lavender flavored but more importantly each serving provides 10mg of THC, CBD and CBN in a perfect 1:1:1 ratio, so these are the strongest erasers we sell. that are marketed for sleep. It’s also the only strain-specific sleep product we offer (meaning the THC in each candy comes from a single cultivar), and these are my favorites because I have a high tolerance, j so i need extra milligrams.
4.) Wyld Marionberry Gummies:
The Taste Budz might be my favorite overall, but these Wyld gummies are by far the best tasting. Obviously Wyld chose the marionberry flavor because the berry itself is supposed to be a sleep aid, but that’s another area where we have to tread carefully because the only chemical in marionberries that has never been proven to do anything is the ellagic acid, which is a natural phenolic antioxidant.
Either way, these tasty gummies provide 10mg of THC and 5mg of CBN per serving, and they deliver the cannabinoids and nothing but the cannabinoids, so it’s the perfect test product to use if you want to see how a THC/CBN combo affects your sleep time. .
5.) Kanha Tranquility:
This is the newest addition to our shelves, and it comes from West Coast cannabis giant Sunderstorm. And the fame of this gum is that each pack is nitrogen flushed, so the gums are as fresh as the day they were made when you tear open one of these bags.
The gummies themselves also contain fast-acting cannabinoids like some of the others, but they do so in a 1:1:1 ratio (5mg each of THC, CBD, and CBN). The flavor is blue raspberry (blue berries and raspberries), and each candy also delivers 1mg of melatonin.
6.) Cheeba Chews Sleepy Time Chocolate Taffy:
The edible landscape in the cannabis industry is obviously dominated by gummy (over 80% of all edibles sold are in gummy form), so this chocolate taffy is for anyone looking for something different. And unlike all previous edibles (except 1906 Drops), this one has 20 smaller servings instead of 10 large ones, so it’s easier to measure your intake. That, and each serving is individually wrapped unlike all the other edibles we’ve talked about, so it’s perfect if you need a serving on the go. Each delicious little taffy delivers 5mg of THC, 2.5mg of CBN and a hit of melatonin.
That’s it – it’s safe to say that if any of these marijuana edibles for sleep won’t help you sleep, there’s no marijuana edible that will, so at least you will know what it is after trying one of them. Again, I apologize that I can’t say anything more definitive as to whether or not one of these will knock you out as you wish, but it’s better that way, isn’t it? not? The cannabis industry is still a nascent thing not yet regulated by the FDA, so at this point it’s safe to say that many of the claims made about this or that cannabinoid aren’t 100% true. , which is where we come in. We will always tell you what is true and what is false, what is true and what is opinion, because when it comes to cannabis, we are your best friends!
