Ever since entering my fifties, I’ve had difficulties sleeping.
Even when I’m severely tired, I sit down in bed and remain awake.
It takes me hours to finally fall asleep. I’ve tried reducing my screen time right before bed. I avoid the laptop and television. I drink herbal tea and go through a series of relaxation techniques. I’ve invested into room darkening curtains and a sound machine. I spent quite a bit of currency on a modern mattress and better pillows. I added rather costly bamboo sheets that are lovelyly soft. None of those ideas have helped me sleep. Not only does it take an severely long time for me to fall asleep, I wake up continually during the night. I then get up in the day feeling tired. My muscles ache and I suffer from headaches. It’s hard to be productive when I’m not getting enough sleep. A friend of mine recommended that I try cannabis. While I’m not willing to risk the harmful side effects of prescription medicine, I have no problem with plant-based medicine. Cannabis is a natural remedy. There are none of the long-term risks of pharmaceuticals. When I visited the local cannabis dispensary, the budtender was legitimately helpful, however she explained that the products are divided into many categories. The sativas are generally acquaintanced with an uplifting, more cerebral high. The indicas are focused more on a relaxing, full-body high. The hybrids are a combination of the many and offer more diversity of effects. She advised that I look into indica strains to help me sleep. I have experimented with unusual consumption options. I adore that a drop of a tincture under my tongue provides simplicity and quick onset of effects. I often choose edibles because I can really cut a gummy in half for a legitimately low dose. I eat half of a gummy before bed, and although the effects can take an hour or so to fully set in, they last for hours as well. Edibles help me to sleep through the night.
