Looking for a CBD product that helps with sleep? Then you may have heard of CBD and CBN gummies! Not only does CBD have sleep promoting properties, but the additional cannabinoid - CBN- serves as a powerful and effective aid for those seeking rest. In this article we will talk about CBD and CBN gummies and how to take them for a better night sleep.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD is one of more than 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids found in cannabis plants Cannabinoids bind to receptors throughout the body and will regulate your entire body. Mammals naturally produce cannabinoids through the endocannabinoid system. This means that when adding CBD or cannabinoids through plants like cannabis, they have somewhere to bind to.
Full spectrum CBD means that the product has all natural occurring cannabinoids vs isolating the individual cannabinoid. Taking a full spectrum CBD product is known to help promote better sleep, less stress, and less discomfort
What is CBN?
CBN is a natural occurring cannabinoid just like CBD. CBN is the result of naturally degraded THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid). Although CBN is non-psychoactive, it makes the user feel tired and promotes a deep healthy sleep.
Cannabis plants are grown and harvested for their phytocannabinoids, which can be extracted from the plant material to produce CBD oil. Although full spectrum extraction is best, isolating CBN is the best way to add more CBN to products.
At Alive Market, we make our CBD and CBN gummies with full spectrum CBD and we add isolated CBN to add more of a sleep aid effect.
How Many CBD and CBN Gummies Should You Take For Sleep?
We recommend taking one to two gummies an hour before you wish to be asleep. The perfect CBD and CBN gummies dosage is different for everyone. For some, 25mg-50mg which is one to two gummies an hour before bedtime may work well. CBD and CBN gummies won't make you feel groggy or sedated like other over the counter sleep aid will, it will just make you feel very relaxed and tired.
When should you take CBD and CBN Gummies?
Taking your CBD and CBN gummies an hour before bedtime will allow the effects of the cannabinoids and terpenes to be absorbed into system. Since the gummy is being digested, it takes about 30-40 minutes to start working. So it is best to take it at least an hour before you are ready to go to sleep.
How long does the CBD and CBN Gummies take to start working?
When you eat CBD and CBN gummies, it takes longer for it to start working. This is because in order for the cannabinoids to be adsorbed into your bloodstream they have been broken down by digestive acids first. The gummies can typically start working between 30 minutes and 1 hour depending on weight and metabolism.
Storage Guidelines For CBD and CBN Gummies For Sleep
CBD and CBN gummies are stored similar to any other supplement. they do not need to be refrigerator. It is important that you do not leave the gummies in a hot car or outside. Store the gummies in the container they came in. Keep in a dry cool place like your kitchen or bedroom. If you have pets or kids be sure to keep the gummies out of reach!
