10 Edibles To Help You Stay Asleep

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 no more than 5mg of THC.

The Proper Cannabis Committee (PCC) has spoken. These are the best edibles for staying asleep throughout the night.

Sympa-Tea by kikoko

If sipping a warm beverage before bed wasn’t relaxing enough, this cannabis-infused herbal tea by kikoko was popular with the Committee for a few reasons. The 3mg of THC in each sachet works synergistically with 20mg of CBD to soothe bodily aches and slow the mind. As an added benefit, the effects kick in rather quickly and it’s tasty as heck. The potency does not get stronger the longer you let it steep, so feel free to keep that teabag in as long as your heart desires.

Relaxing Cinnamon Indica Mints by Mr. Moxey's Mints

These mints may look small, but believe the PCC when they say they’re mighty relaxing. While the high may start out upbeat, raters report feeling heavy in the eyes once the effects kick in fully, so consider taking one earlier in the evening and another before bed to maximize the good vibes. These mints are a tasty, discreet addition to your nightly routine, and with 5mg of THC per mint, they’re easy to dose precisely. 

Available in Oregon and Washington.

Origin by Atlas Edibles

With 20mg of THC per cluster, these edibles are not for the faint of heart, but their ability to help PCC raters sleep through the night secured them a high score. Rater Khara Krawczyk wrote, “Holy moly, these knocked me out! Half a dose and a couple hits of flower later I was out like a light.” To avoid feeling drowsy the next morning, take your preferred dose two hours before bedtime.

Legal: Lemon Ginger by Mirth

The golden child of Mirth’s Legal line of beverages, this Lemon Ginger drink packs 20mg of THC per $10 bottle, making it a cost-effective sleep potion for those with lower tolerances. Raters found this drink helped them fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed, resulting in its respectably high score. Life hack: dilute your preferred dose of this drink with sparkling water for a light and fizzy canna-cocktail. 

Available in California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona.

Midnight by 1906

Between the gourmet flavor, a healthy dose of sleep-inducing Chinese herbs, and an ultra-relaxing 1:1 CBD:THC ratio, it’s no wonder these chocolates snagged a high score. Rater Shannon Mullen said, “These chocolates relaxed my whole body and felt better than Xanax.” Another rater said they eliminated her menstrual cramps, which makes them lifesavers in our book. 

Available in Colorado only.

Dark Chocolate Bar by Kiva

It'd be easy to mistake this perfectly tempered chocolate for an unmedicated bar if it weren't for the sedating body high. If you plan on pairing the strong body buzz with a night of binge-watching, be prepared to sleep through the night on your couch. Should you manage to stay awake, you'll likely get a surge of arousal—or the munchies. Either way, you're in for a good time leading up to bed.

Cinnamon CBD 1:1 Spray by Breez

Breez’s Cinnamon CBD 1:1 Spray will both freshen your breath and ease you into sleep. A balanced 5mg of both THC and CBD in each pump means low and high tolerance users alike can count on this spray for nighttime relief. Administer it sublingually (spray under your tongue and hold for 20 seconds) and expect to feel the sedating effects kick in in 30 minutes or less.

Indica Milk Chocolate by BlueKudu

Beyond having a satisfying taste and texture, BlueKudu’s indica milk chocolate bars got a high score because they are exceptionally effective at putting you to sleep. Fans of this bar say it enhances relaxation while supporting an upbeat mood, should you choose to hang out with friends or watch Netflix in the hours leading up to sleep. 

Available in Colorado only.

Indica Dark Truffles by Swifts Edibles

A delectably smooth texture and sedating body high are what secured these truffles a high score. These truffles verge on the drowsy side, which in this case is less of a side effect and more of a benefit. If taken early enough in the evening, the luxurious body high may even facilitate an intimate “activity” before helping you drift off to sleep. 

Available in Washington only. 

Wild Berry Camino Gummies by Kiva

Kiva’s Wild Berry Camino Gummies are flavorful, exquisitely textured sleeping supplements. Between a luxuriously heavy body high and happy head high, they make perfect sleeping companions. As one rater put it, “This is such a pleasant high I'd equate it to being wrapped in a warm blanket on a cold morning.”
