The Importance of Sleep
Did you know that up to 70 million Americans suffer from sleep issues? Additionally, up to 70% of Americans report that they have trouble sleeping. That’s a lot of sleep-deprived people out there just trying to get through the day! The worst part is that sleep deprivation is seen as the norm in our society. Our schedules always seem to be packed, and it feels like we’re expected to be busy all the time. It’s almost like we’ve forgotten that rest and sleep are vital to our health.
Sleep is your body’s time to repair itself. When you’re not getting enough quality sleep, you’ve probably noticed that you just feel more generally run-down. Sleep is also vital for your mental wellbeing. Have you ever been in a good mood after a bad night’s sleep?
We need sleep in order to be our best selves, too. Studies show that “drowsy driving” can be just as dangerous as drunk driving, if not more. Besides—no matter what you do in a day, you definitely aren’t performing your best if all you can think about is taking a nap or getting your next cup of coffee.
This is all to say that it’s important to carve out time in your busy schedule to prioritize sleep! We know it can be hard to do so, which is why we’re here to help. Read on to find out how Delta-8 THC can help you get the resftul sleep you need in order to be the best version of yourself.
What is D8?
In case you’re not familiar, Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in hemp plants. It’s legal in many states and contains less than 0.3% THC by dry weight (but can still get you high). If you’re still curious, you can read all about D8 on our blog.
Why D8 for Sleep?
We’ve all heard the advice a thousand times: make sure your bedroom is cold and dark, get plenty of exercise, and stay off your phone before bed. The truth is that sometimes that just isn’t enough!
Many conventional sleep aids and medications can be habit-forming and leave you feeling drowsy in the morning. That’s why many people have started to opt for natural sleep aids, such as D8, CBD, and other cannabinoid products.
Delta-8 is known to produce a mild, relaxing, full-bodied high. Many people turn to D8 products to wind down in the evenings before bed, and when incorporated into a bedtime routine, they can be a game-changer.
Best of all, D8 won’t leave you feeling drowsy in the morning and is basically free from side effects at a moderate dose. (At a higher dose, D8 can produce some of the same side effects that other cannabis products can, like cottonmouth, paranoia, and the munchies. Take it easy until you know your tolerance and how this specific cannabinoid affects you!)
What Should I Look For?
If you’re looking for a D8 product to help you sleep, there are a few things to consider.
If you typically have trouble falling asleep but can usually sleep through the night, a fast-acting product might be best for you. These will help you relax and get sleepy at the end of the day, and you can dose yourself whenever you’re getting ready for bed. Flower, vapes, and tinctures would be great choices for you.
If you don’t have a problem falling asleep but find yourself waking up throughout the night, you might want to opt for a longer-lasting product. Edibles would be perfect for you—we have something for every taste.
Don’t worry if you fall into both categories—we’ve all been there. If you can’t fall asleep or stay asleep, you’ll probably want something a little bit stronger. You can also adjust what time you use the products for slightly different effects. You could try something fast-acting to help you wind down paired with something long-lasting just before bedtime to help you stay asleep all night.
