Restless nights are no match for these weedy treats.
We’ve all been there. You fall asleep easily only to wake up fully alert a few hours before your alarm is set to go off. Do you get up and go? Try to go back to sleep? Not getting a full night’s rest can throw off your entire day, but not everyone wants prescription sleep meds and the health risks that come with them. As you likely already know, weed and sleep go together like peanut butter and jelly. But that doesn’t mean all cannabis products are great for restless nights. If pain is keeping you up at night, high doses of CBD can help, while overactive minds could benefit from a combination of CBD and THC.
For the purposes of this guide, we’ve focused on edibles because they provide full-body highs that last well into the night. Keep in mind, edible highs can take up to two hours to kick in. That means taking too much too long before bed can spark some paranoia (not ideal for sleep) and taking too much right before bed can leave you feeling groggy the next morning (not ideal for waking). Finding that perfect dose requires a little trial and error, but if you’re brand-spanking-new to edibles, we recommend starting with a low dose of 5mg of THC. And this should go without saying, but for the love of your coworkers, don’t experiment with your sleep routine if you have an 8am meeting the next day.
