Recently my insomnia has reached a peak to the point where I was getting 30 minutes to two hours of sleep a night. Having a sleep disorder can be debilitating to many in this world we live in and shouldn’t be part of our day to day lives.
When I first started talking CBD I figured it would help squash my insomnia until reality set in and it was doing nothing for it. Then I read something interesting recently. CBD in regular quantities will have an effect which will make you alert and awake while in greater quantities will have the opposite effect of sleepiness.
Every AM and PM I take 1 full tincture from my 1500mg bottle. This was not doing anything towards my insomnia at all but it did shut my brain up for a significant amount of time at night.
Two days ago I bought a 1000mg total jar of edible CBD gummies, the sour flat strips because my CBD guy said someone who weighs 250lbs buys one jar every 3 months because he cuts them in half due to the fact that they knock him out quickly and for the entire night.
Since I have a sleeping disorder and not just insomnia I figured that for me one entire strip would work for me. In total, one strip is 30mg of CBD. The first night I skipped the tincture and took one strip instead. I fell asleep at 11 and woke up at 4. Not bad for someone like me. The next night I returned to taking the tincture and one strip and slept from 11 to 7 without any walking up in the middle of the night. Again, excess CBD has the effect of sleepiness versus alertness and in this example proved to me that this but of information was correct for me at least.
The jar of edibles is made by “Just CBD” and comes in various strengths and kinds of gummies and the full spectrum CBD oil I use lately is Tanazil which I wholesale locally to retail stores. I highly suggest both brands for everything you use CBD for and remember that the dose of CBD matters with regards to normal versus extra CBD and the effect it will have on you.
During the weekend I like to catch up on sleep until 2-3pm and today I woke up at 7:30am, took another gummy and a tincture and went back to bed sleeping another 5 hours. At this rate my sleep debt will be caught up to normal eventually, faster as opposed to never, and I’m happy with that.
