Honestly, the field of cannabis research is so new and complex that it’s difficult to say anything with certainty. This is especially true in the realm of cannabinoid-related sleep science.
However, most current research suggests CBD gummies are a better option for sleep patients. A primary reason CBD shows greater potential in this arena has to do with its anti-anxiety properties. As we’ve mentioned in previous blogs, CBD often performs better against placebos in patients with social anxiety disorder. Some sleep therapists hypothesize this calming effect helps naturally adjust our circadian rhythm.
Also, as noted in a previous blog post, CBD shows great promise in promoting deep sleep. Researchers in Colorado recently tested CBD’s efficacy in the treatment of PTSD-related nightmares. According to this trial, roughly 90 percent of PTSD patients who took CBD noted improved overall sleep quality.
While there are a few studies suggesting THC may have potential benefits, there are more drawbacks associated with this cannabinoid. Indeed, multiple studies indicate long-term THC users experience memory impairment and increased anxiety. It’s also more common for people who take THC to experience severe side effects like paranoia, vomiting, or digestive troubles.
Generally speaking, products with a higher CBD-to-THC ratio have a higher chance of helping you get to bed (no pun intended). While the effects of CBD gummies are more subtle than THC, they are a safer long-term strategy for promoting rock-solid REM cycles.
Many new customers put off trying hemp edibles because they fear an adverse reaction. However, in most cases, people are more concerned with THC rather than CBD—even if they don’t know the differences we’ve covered above.
At Chil Wellness, we go above and beyond to protect customers from THC exposure. Instead of leaving behind a faint trace of delta 9 THC, our manufacturers filter out this psychoactive cannabinoid. Our naturally-sweetened CBD gummies are broad-spectrum, which means there’s zero chance you’ll be exposed to THC compounds. This makes our CBD formula perfect for people who have adverse reactions to THC.
While our CBD gummies aren’t formulated specifically for bedtime, they can help you relax into sleep. To get the extra sleep benefits, we recommend combining them with our melatonin-enhanced Deep Sleep Capsules. The mix of these two products can help you unwind at the end of a stressful day. Be sure to give your body enough time to absorb both of these products. Usually, it takes at least 30 - 45 minutes until you start to feel relaxing effects.
