Oh, insomnia, we meet again.
A large part of the population is experiencing issues with sleeping, whether it’s falling asleep or staying asleep.
Lack of sleep can affect our body, our emotions, and our overall life. There’s been a growing interest in using cannabidiol (CBD) to assist with sleep disorders, as well as various other conditions. Not only does CBD offer a natural alternative to potentially harmful sleeping pills, but preliminary research is already showing its potential. This study from 2016 states that “cannabidiol oil, an increasingly popular treatment of anxiety and sleep issues, has been documented as being an effective alternative to pharmaceutical medications.”

I grow cbd strains for my aunt and a veteran i know. It definitely helps with arthritis and stomach ailments. I personally cant stand how it makes me feel, like taking downers or something. The real trick with sleep problems is just to stay active. I think insomnias become a big issue because we have a society thats largely dominated by a sedentary work environment. My brother in law has had a work from home job for the past 3 years and developed severe insomnia and even depression. Combine that with the fact that he drank coffee all day and wasnt burning off all that cortisol. He said the cbd weed I gave him didn't help much but hes getting out and walking for half an hour a day and thats helping a lot. Just wanted to pitch a different perspective on the matter. You cant give your body a reason to be tired when your job is to sit around all day and that describes half the population

I’ve tried cbd and it does nothing to me. Gave my mom the rest of it and she loves the stuff. Says it pretty much fixed her sleep and makes her arthritis more manageable. She hates thc though.

That pretty much me. I call it SuperFake. Just makes me feel down and crummy like im drinking a Mad Dog 20/20 or something. It does a world of good for the people that like it. Im glad more banks are producing new strains

The CBD flower I've smoked wasn't even really good (about 8% CBD industrial hemp...), but I've really liked the effect. Very relaxing, with just a hint of a THC buzz in the background.

THC flower on the other hand just drives me nuts (unless it's a very low dose, but it's actually difficult for me to dose low enough...).

Has anybody here tried CBD distillate or isolate?

I often struggle with insomnia. I often took meds, but as stated on Canadian pharmacy website they can cause tolerance, that's why I was searching for alternatives. I tried CBD oil without THC. At first, I thought it helped me with insomnia, but after a while I again couldn't fall asleep. So I guess, it doesn't really help me. I was recommended to try melatonin and it indeed works great for me.

Well, melatonin is the hormone that makes you sleep, so that's not surprising. What's the mode of application? Is it a pill or drops? Do you get it on prescription or is it freely available?

I have a friend who has trouble sleeping, maybe it will work or her, too.

With regards to sleeping, it's probably also important to apply some common sense rules: the room where you sleep needs to be completely dark. Like a grow tent during flowering at night ;). Even small amounts of light will impede the sleep schedule.
Don't use a smartphone or PC before going to sleep. The blue light from the screen is not good.
Stop eating at least two hours before going to bed.

Mindfulness meditation can also help (that's a good practice in any case, even a little each day goes a long way).

You can get melatonin in many forms, most common is prob the pill version of it. But I have seen melatonin gummies and drops too. Had edibles with melatonin and cbd in them as well for sleeping

Its high cbn you need for sleep imo in combo with thc cbd and other cannabinoids etc some strains are naturally higher in cbn than others and i aint talking about over aged stuff im talking about they just naturally rich in it at harvest time funnily enough its not super potent but the old big bud used to test pretty high in cbn in certain penos around the 1.2% range or thereabouts if my memory serves me right i dont think just thc and cbd cuts it for proper insomnia ime

Leave your bud in the direct sunlight for a few hours, or, put it in the oven at low temp.

You'll get your sleep inducing cbn's, my friend.

Proceed to smoke, vape, or most effective: make edibles, tincture or RSO.

I ran out of CBD bud so I've been vaping normal bud + VERY LITTLE AMOUNT of cbd isolate. I think it was CBD isolate made with CO2. That shit is packed small so use very little amounts. It works wonders for my anxiety + adhd + stomach issues + nervous pains, whatever they are. Too much of cbd and I feel sluggish. Its a fine line. CBD without THC gives only some benefit, not all.

To those who don't see any benefit in CBD themselves, its a gamechanger for someone who actually needs it.

I also need very small dose of THC, and its very strain dependant. Most of strains feel bad, but some few work wonders. Northern Lights, and some sativas like Super Lemon Haze. I wish there was more strains to try.

EDIT: That cbd cuts the effect of pure thc strains and they don't drive you nuts anymore. Highly recommend for pretty much anyone, especially for us who are sensitive to thc.
