Missing Out On A Good Night’s Sleep?

Imagine yourself lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, unable to fall asleep… AGAIN. You have tried everything, but nothing seems to get you to sleep. Night after night, you struggle to fall and stay asleep. So you decide to try a generic sleeping pill to curb the cycle. You still wake up in a fog and feel your energy crash by the afternoon.

 

Does this sound familiar?

Well you aren’t the only one. In fact, 50 to 70 million Americans report having some type of sleep issue/disorder. And according to the recommendation from the National Sleep Foundation, adults should get seven to nine hours of quality sleep per night; meanwhile most American’s only report getting around 6 hours

As we all know, quality sleep is crucial to our physical health, mental health, and overall well being. Sleep has a tremendous impact on our performance and energy during the day; and allows our bodies to recover and heal from injuries, stress, and illness at night.

However, reaching for common sleeping pills can often create more problems during waking hours, such as grogginess during the day, heartburn, memory problems, stomach pain, and swelling. And when used long term, they can create a risk for dependency, addiction, and an increased risk of overdose.

The good news is… there is hope for the sleep-less!

Try CBN: A Natural Sleep Aid

If you’re looking for a natural way to catch more ZZZ’s, consider CBN. Your newest, natural alternative to sleeping pills or over-the-counter remedies.

What is CBN?

CBN, aka Cannabinol, is naturally found in the hemp and cannabis plant. It is a cannabinoid with therapeutic benefits similar to the other popular cannabinoids, THC and CBD.

When THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is oxidized and starts to naturally degenerate, it converts to CBN. Unlike THC, CBN in its final state, has no psychoactive effects, so there are no “high” or mind altering effects.

How is CBN Different from THC and CBD?

CBN is the byproduct of the degradation of THC and produces no psychoactive effects, which is often one of the main concerns for people who don’t consume THC, but want to explore ways they can benefit from the cannabis plant medicinal properties of the plant without getting “high.” An effect the two DO have in common is helping you get to sleep! Research conducted in 1976 suggested CBN had sedative effects, especially when paired with THC.

Following THC, CBD is the second-most-abundant cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. While CBD has a little bit more in common with CBN, it is not known for creating a “sedating” effect, desired in a sleep aid. CBD is mostly commonly used for those experiencing physical pain, inflammation, and anxiety.

CBN and Sleep

Like CBD and THC, CBN interacts with our endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate many of the body’s physiological functions such as cognition, pain perception, mood, appetite, and sleep. The cannabinoids bind to these CB1 and CB2 receptors and produce an array of potential benefits.

CBN’s effect on these receptors may provide particularly effective option for battling insomnia and reducing anxiety.
