Zzzzzzz. Humans spend 1/3 of their life sleeping. The real question is, are you getting enough quality sleep?
Sleep Disorders are Common
Unfortunately, sleep disorders are much more common than you think. Up to 70 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders every year. Are you one of them? Do you toss and turn all night long?
“There are several different types of sleep-wake disorders, of which insomnia is the most common. Other sleep-wake disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, parasomnias, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome. Sleep difficulties are linked to both physical and emotional problems” (American Psychiatric Association).
Do you have troubles falling asleep? Ideally, it should only take 10-15 minutes to fall asleep at night. Or maybe you struggle with staying asleep? Insomnia symptoms occur in approximately 33% to 50% of the adult population.
Ugh. Yawn. Don’t you wish there was a magic tool we had to help us sleep?
All Living Things Sleep
Sleep is such an interesting topic when you really think about it. All living things sleep, but sleep is not the same across the board.
Babies sleep 14-17 hours in a 24 hr period. Adults should be sleeping minimum 7 hours a night. Depending on the animal, their sleep ranges across the board as well. Horses sleep two hours a day whereas a tiger sleeps 15 hours a day.
Even cannabis plants sleep. During flower, the plant sleeps 12 hours/day and during veg about 6 hours of sleep a day.
Cannabis Can Help
If you are looking for another option to help you receive quality sleep at night, we may have the answer and product(s) for you.
Thankfully, those of us who do struggle when it comes to sleep can use CBD, THC and CBN and as a sleep aide.
Cannabinol, aka CBN, is also derived from hemp plants. “CBN and CBD are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but they have different chemical structures,” explains Dr. Elizabeth Ardillo, Director of Medical Education at Green Thumb Industries. When THC, the main active ingredient in cannabis, is heated and exposed to Co2 (oxygen), it converts to what is known as CBN. Similar to CBD, the benefits of consuming CBN include improved sleep quality, pain relief, and anti-inflammation. However, CBN is far more powerful when it comes to sleep. “CBD is not as useful as CBN when we’re talking about those relaxing properties,” explains Dr. Ardillo. ( Food52).
