Why You Will Love This Guide

If you’re here, I may already know a few things about you.

You’re frustrated with yet another week plagued by sleepless nights.

Despite implementing all the advice on getting a good eight hours, you drive yourself crazy wondering why you’re still struggling with never-ending sleep disruptions.

In the back of your mind, you wonder why your friends, who are daily users, boast about getting the best-quality sleep nearly every night.

I get it. Finding restful sleep can feel like an uphill battle. And the options you’ve already tried – melatonin, prescriptions, and everything in between- aren’t working.

You’re looking for a natural remedy to calm your mind and body before bedtime and wondering if cannabis could be the answer.

Well, it could be! But it’s up to you to actually give it a try.

With so many varieties of cannabis and different ways to consume it, I know it can be overwhelming to decide how to use it safely and effectively.

That’s why in this article, I will review the potential benefits of cannabis for sleep and guide you through using different cannabinoids, application methods, and dosages that can help you finally get those much-needed zzzs.

Does Cannabis Really Work?

New evidence suggests that cannabis may have many positive effects on sleep, allowing you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer1.

This supports what so many consumers have been reporting for years; cannabis helps them sleep better, which in turn improves their quality of life.

The science behind this is simple: cannabinoids activate receptors in the endocannabinoid system that play a key role in regulating sleep2

Never heard of the endocannabinoid system before?

Every human body has one, and it works with the compounds produced by the cannabis plant, like CBD or THC.

While we need more clinical evidence to know exactly why, members of my Well With Cannabis Community have reported that cannabis helps them with the following:

  • Improving poor sleep
  • Enhancing overall sleep quality
  • Decreasing the amount of time to fall asleep
  • Extending REM sleep
  • Improving deep sleep
  • Minimizing sleep disturbances
  • Help for restless legs syndrome
  • Relief for chronic insomnia and sleep apnea
  • Managing other sleep disorders  

Above all, they note that once they finally get a good night’s rest, they now have the energy to work on their healthy lifestyle to improve their physical and mental health. 

They also say how amazing it is to have an effective sleep aid that genuinely works for a variety of conditions – without the unwanted long-term effects associated with prescription medications, such as addiction or withdrawal symptoms.

Cannabinoids to Experiment With

If you are looking to improve your sleep, knowing which cannabinoids to focus on can make all the difference. 

CBD, CBN, and THC are a few cannabinoids that have early evidence to suggest they may help to aid in sleep, either on their own or combined together. 

It’s important to note that while CBD and CBN are non-intoxicating, too much THC can cause a “high,” depending on the dose. 

To find the ideal option for you, I recommend you test the cannabinoids separately and also together. My customers prefer a sleep solution containing a 1:10 CBN:CBD ratio or a 1:1 THC:CBD ratio. 

Keep in mind that cannabis affects everyone differently, and there are many different options to try. Remember, the terpene profile can affect your experience as well. 

Finding the perfect solution for better sleep may take some time and patience. Don’t get discouraged if the first try doesn’t work for you – there are a variety of different strains and methods of consumption to explore. 

With some experimentation, you’ll be on your way to a more restful and rejuvenating night’s sleep.

Consider The Strain 

When it comes to selecting the right strain for better sleep, there are many options to choose from. Indica vs. Sativa or hybrids – each type offers different benefits and effects. 

Indica-dominant and hybrid strains are generally considered the best option for sleep-inducing properties. Our products are hybrid, meaning they contain a balance of each.

Playing with strains is not a one-size-fits-all solution, but with patience and proper research, you can find the perfect strain that suits your needs.

Once you’ve found the strain that is right for you, you can use it to make your own CBN oil at home.

Keep in mind that this may take some time, as there are many different strains to experiment with, but the benefits of finding the right option for better sleep are worth the effort. 

Application Methods 

How you use cannabis greatly affects how you feel and how long the effects last. That’s why exploring and choosing the best methods for your needs is important.

Whether you’re looking to improve your sleep or manage chronic pain, there are many options to choose from, including edibles, topicals, smoking, and vaping. 

Each one of these methods will produce a different result. Learn more about how these options will affect you:

It’s important to note that different methods can be combined for longer, more targeted relief. You can compare and contrast the different methods here.

For example, you could combine smoking, which would provide instantaneous relief to help you fall asleep, with an edible that may take longer to kick in to help you stay asleep longer throughout the night.

With so many choices available, understanding the ins and outs of each method can save you time and money while delivering the relief and support you need.

Experimenting with different application methods can help you pinpoint what works best for your body.

Dose & Timing 

Understanding the dosing and timing is essential to achieving the desired effects. But how do you know where to start?

The truth is, there is no magic number when it comes to dosing with cannabis products. 

That’s why it’s important to always err on the side of caution, especially when working with THC. Remember the golden rule: start low and go slow. 

Until you know your tolerance, there is never such a thing as “too low” of a low or a dose too small; you can always work your way up to higher doses. 

If you do not know your personal tolerance, 1-3mg of THC is a good place to start. When working with cannabinoids that won’t make you high, such as CBD or CBN, 5mg is a good place to start.

You can learn more with my safe dosing guide here.

Regardless of which cannabinoid you prefer, knowing your dose and keeping track of it in a cannabis journal can help you assess your symptoms and measure your progress over time.

Post-Cannabis Sleep Routine

The effects of cannabis speak for themselves, but you will get the best results if you set up a comfortable space promoting better sleep, too. 

Start your routine by creating a pre-bed ritual to help you relax and unwind before bed.

Ensure your comfortable and inviting sleeping environment with cozy bedding, ambient lighting, and soothing scents. For me, blackout curtains and a loud fan are essential.

Also, focus on other changes that affect good sleep hygiene, such as:

  • ​Avoiding weight gain
  • Getting a moderate amount of exercise
  • Managing high blood pressure 
  • Taking care of health conditions
  • Supporting the immune system

So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to transform your sleep routine and elevate your cannabis experience like never before.

  1. Hey Emily great info on sleep. We have been using no bake peanut butter cookies with 12 mg THC per cookie and get the best sleep of our lives. As a 71 year old I have found that I don’t have to get up 1-2 times a night to urinate. I guess it is positively affected my enlarged prostate. One more benefit to add to your list. Thanks again.

  2. Hi Bob. This is wonderful to hear and I appreciate you sharing with us! Cannabis is an excellent anti-inflammatory so it makes sense your prostate benefits as well! Thank you for your kind words and continued support.

  3. I am a Cannabis Patient who suffers with Chronic Pain Syndrome as well as Insomnia. I infuse honey for my nighttime tea. I also bake honey sugar. Cookies with same cannabis that I infuse my honey with. I wish I had money which would allow me to buy gummies, but I do not. So I do the best I can with what I have.

  4. Hi Kimberly. I can relate to your struggle as a cannabis patient dealing with chronic pain. Infusing honey for your nighttime tea and baking cannabis-infused cookies shows resourcefulness and determination to make the most of what you have. Have you seen Emily’s DIY gummy guides? Cannabis Gummies Made With Tincture, FECO, or RSO & Infuse Store-Bought Gummies with Cannabis Tinctures.
    Keep exploring new ways to alleviate your symptoms and stay strong!

  5. I degraded the THC to CBN (I have insomnia). Is there a way to check the potency? I started with 28g of lemon drop trim at 17.84 THC. I used the MBM and two cups of coconut oil and 1tblsp of lethcin. I can calculate if it’s THC , just not sure if the same math applies for CBN. Or if there is some sort of degradation curve I need to apply? TIA!

  6. Hi Jim. We don’t have lab results to confirm accuracy for THC-to-CBN conversion just yet, but based on our knowledge and anecdotal reports from our Well With Cannabis Community, we recommend decarbing your THC for 180 minutes at 240ºF for optimal results. This process should yield a 100% conversion, ensuring that the calculations remain consistent and the strength of THC becomes equivalent to that of CBN. I hope this explanation is helpful to you! Sending restful sleep vibes your way!
