Are those elusive ZZZZZZZZZs getting harder and harder to catch?!!? Have no fear….. help
may be near.
Sleep issues can make a person downright miserable! Trouble falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, and
poor sleep quality make for a restless night and an even more frustrating morning. One of our number one
requests here at Hempsol is, “Do you have any products that could help me achieve a better night’s sleep?” Recent
studies have shown that the potential health benefits of using CBD and marijuana to positively impact sleep are
worth exploring. For the educated consumer, there are many options to choose from . So grab a pillow and
blanket, get comfy, and read on.
First, it is helpful to learn some background information on the history of this powerful plant and its
sleep properties. Although everything is not yet known regarding how cannabis works in the body, much is being
looked at closely, and our endocannabinoid system may hold many of the answers. Research has discovered that
the ECS plays an important role in maintaining certain body functions. Within this system, there is a complex
network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. Two of these primary receptors have
been identified as CB1 and CB2. When cannabinoids attach to these cells, they have been reported to have
various positive effects. Additionally, CBD, THC, and its derivatives may play a role in decreasing anxiety and
pain, which may interfere with quality sleep. Not feeling restored and rejuvenated is certainly a problem that
many are trying desperately to solve.
So, where to begin? How does one find a solution? The first place to turn to may be giving a full spectrum
CBD product a try. There are many ways to add CBD into your bedtime routine. One of the most popular is a
CBD oil, or tincture, that is absorbed under the tongue. Over time, ingesting a few drops of one of our highly
recommended products each night, as well as in the morning, can help create a lasting “entourage effect” which
works to balance and create synergy within the body. Supporting our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) can also
be achieved by using reliable products on an as needed basis. If a CBD tincture seems like it’s too high
maintenance, then we have many edibles and vapes available in various concentrations. Here at Hempsol we
take pride in matching the correct product with our customer’s needs.
For many experiencing sleep issues, sticking to a strictly CBD only option may be the right plan, but for
others who may need a little more….. Delta 8 may be just the ticket. What is it you ask? Some have referred to
it as “THC light”, meaning that experts say the new kid on the block, Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol, may provide
similar medicinal benefits as Delta 9 THC without the negative paranoia side effects. Since D8 uniquely binds to
receptors in the nervous system, it could play a significant role in our sleep/wake cycles. Slowing down processes
such as breathing, heart rate, and restless thoughts may be beneficial in creating a sense of calm that promotes
rest. Although more research is pending, many users have reported a more relaxed body feeling along with a
calmer mind. Since Delta 8 exists naturally in the hemp plant, the 2018 Farm Bill allows it to be considered
legal under federal law. Unfortunately, as some states often do…… many have begun to outlaw this powerful
derivative, even though anecdotally many individuals suffering from sleep problems have found it to be a lifesaver.
Consulting your doctor, choosing the right delivery method, and going with strengths and natural ingredients
that promote relaxation does make this a viable alternative.
And finally, if you’re looking to take it to the next level, a CBD:THC ratio may be calling your name. If
you’re interested in trying drops, gummies, edibles, or smokeables that fall below the legal limit of .3% THC, then
we have options for you. Many of our products have more potent effects for those looking for highly desirable
outcomes. When CBD and THC are used together, they seem to have a synergistic relationship like no other.
Blending the most beneficial cannabinoids with other plant based compounds already known to promote
relaxation and sleep seems like a no-brainer. Terpenes such as lavender and linalool can also have a pleasing
result and are thus added to various strains, not only to increase the power of the nose, but to promote a feeling
of overall well being. Many believe that a deep relaxation can be achieved by finding the right dosage and method
that works for you. Long story short…. everyone is different, and our specialty at Hempsol is finding the best
blend for each of our individual customers.
Now that you have some good quality information, channel dreamy peaceful thoughts and drift off to
what could be some serious relief. Come in or order online. You can trust us to direct you to products that you
can count on to make a difference. We do the work for you…… so you can get some rest!
