Cannabis 101

Best Marijuana for Sleep

09.20.22 - 4 min read

Anyone suffering from insomnia knows how frustrating it can be to try to get a good night’s sleep. There’s all sorts of remedies to help you fall asleep fast. Cutting back on caffeine, drinking chamomile tea, establishing a regular bedtime routine, keeping your bedroom cool and dark and listening to relaxing music are often suggested. But what if there were other options?   

Cannabis has for generations acted as a great way to induce a quick nap or a potential remedy for a good night of sleep. Now, it is being studied professionally for its ability to help people relax and fall asleep. According to the Sleep Foundation, about 70% of young adults that occasionally use marijuana say they do so to help them rest at night. According to the latest research published by the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, cannabinol is known for its ability to help people do just that. With a little research, your path to wellness and a relaxing night’s sleep isn’t far away. There’s a lot of different strains and products so the key is to experiment while you discover exactly what meets your needs.  

So, what’s the best cannabis for sleep? Not all cannabis strains are created equal. You’ve probably heard about Sativa vs Indica, but what do they mean?

Here’s how to find the best cannabis for sleep and what to look for when shopping for marijuana products to help you fall sleep.

Indica vs Sativa vs Hybrid Strains 

When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, Indica and Hybrid strains are often mentioned in reviews and are the most popular among cannabis customers. 

Indica is one of the most popular strains of cannabis, and it’s often preferred by our patients and guests. A recent research study even suggests that Indica strains may help manage the symptoms of insomnia better than other types of strains. While the best indica for insomnia can vary, strains for insomnia are going to be in similar categories.

Edibles are relatively easy to manage and longer lasting, allowing you to enjoy their effects for several hours.  

Possible add? – “Because they are consumed rather than smoked, the cannabinoids in the edible offer a more effective delivery system for some. Likewise, edibles have a tendency to feel more potent for some, allowing for a higher high and deeper sleep.

What cannabinoids should I look for if I need better sleep? 

CBN 

Cannabinol (CBN) is a natural compound found in marijuana plants. It’s non-intoxicating, just like CBD. Some of the most popular products for sleep chosen by RISE customers contain CBN. 

  • Doze [15ml] Tincture by Doctor Solomon’s (50mg CBN/50mg THC)   
  • Sweet Dreams Edible Pastilles by Beboe [20pk] (100mg THC/20mg CBN)   
  • 5:1 Snoozzzeberry CBN Gummies by incredibles [10pk] (100mg THC/20mg CBN)   

So if you’re looking for a natural way to improve your sleep, try adding CBN to your nightly routine. You may just find that you RISE and shine the next day! 

THC 

THC is the primary intoxicating component of cannabis. It can interact with cannabinoid receptors in the brain to produce a variety of effects, including relaxation and sedation. In addition, scientific research suggests that THC may be helpful for managing the symptoms of sleep disorders like insomnia. 

CBD 

CBD is a psychoactive but non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis plants that has calming and relaxing effects. Trying CBD may be worth a shot if you’re struggling with insomnia or just want to improve your sleep quality.

What terpenes should I look for if I need better sleep? 

Linalool Terpene 

RISE patients and guests looking to improve their sleep quality may want to check out linalool, one of many terpenes found in cannabis. Linalool in particular is being studied for its potential sedative and anxiolytic effects, both of which can help promote better sleep. In addition, linalool is being studied for its ability to reduce inflammation, which can contribute to pain and other conditions that can disrupt sleep. If you’re seeking a natural way to improve your sleep, linalool is something to check for on your next visit to a nearby RISE cannabis store

Myrcene Terpene 

If you’re looking for a good night’s sleep, look for strains high in myrcene. This cannabis terpene is known for its sedative effects and is commonly found in Indica strains. Myrcene is also found in other plants, including hops and lemongrass. So, if you’re looking for a product to help you wind down before bed, give products rich in myrcene a try.
