Cannabis As a Natural Sleep Aid
Using cannabis as a natural sleep aid.
If you plan to restore your sleep in the most natural way – medical cannabis might be exactly the thing you need. If you take a deeper look at the elements of Marijuana, you will see, that it has over 80 cannabinoids, from which the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and the simple one – cannabinol (CBN) are the most important ones. Most people who are familiar with the medical effect of cannabis know, that THC is the one responsible for the overall effect, but it’s CBN, the younger one, who takes the duties of making you sleepy. So easy and medically proven is that, the more CBN, the sleepier the effect, so if you plan to use marijuana for sleep-aid, be sure to check the tech numbers of the strain.
Every year more and more doctors approve the use of cannabis as a sleeping medication. If properly user, cannabis builds up no tolerance, gives no side effects and is perfectly safe for the medical marijuana patient. There is no need to do an extensive research to see that sleeping pills are dangerous and often even a mistake with dosage is fatal, not even mentioning, that your kids might be able to find them and take them. Sounds scary and if you want to avoid that, you can always try one of the medium-potent strains that are advised as sleep aid ones. Just make sure that they have enough CBN or Indica strains in it’s genetics.
Another great bonus of medical cannabis as a sleep-aid medicine is storage. The thing is that CBN comes from THC and the more you store your medicinal marijuana, the more CBN you get (and the less THC, which is important if you aim to keep the medical marijuana powerful as long as possible). Of course it won’t become super sedative, but it will definitely keep it’s medicinal profile as a night-time marijuana. So if you are a casual smoker who uses some nice Indica or Indica-dominant hybrid after an especially stressful day from time to time, you don’t need to worry about your stash going bad. Just make sure that you have no storage and moisture in your storage room.
