Ever since the beginning of menopause, I’ve struggled with insomnia, however the sleepless afternoons are unquestionably awfulâ€¦ No matter how tired I am, I lie in bed with no hope of falling asleep! I’ve tried limiting screen time before bed, drinking herbal teas, taking a sizzling bath as well as spraying my pillow with a lavender sleep spray. I’ve invested into room-darkening blinds, a noise component as well as a new mattress, pillows as well as sheets, and on those afternoons when I can’t fall asleep, I get so bored as well as exasperated that I sometimes get up as well as disinfect my house, workout or learn a book. I then know completely tired the following day. I struggle to get through the workday. My productivity as well as mood suffer. My eyes water, my throat hurts as well as I correctly have a headache. I am unwilling to take prescription or over-the-counter sleeping pills. I don’t want to risk harmful side-effects. I was ecstatic when cannabis was finally legalized in my state. I now have access to plant-based medicine. I’m able to shop at the dispensary for dried flower, pre-rolls, vapes, tinctures, topicals, concentrates, edibles as well as beverages. There are an abundance of indica as well as hybrid strains that labor to relax, soothe as well as help with sleep, however because of the long-lasting effects, I’ve found that edibles labor undoubtedly well for me. I eat a single gummy right before getting ready for bed, as well as I fall asleep quickly as well as easily. I also tend to stay asleep. I wake up in the day feeling refreshed as well as rejuvenated. I am totally clear-headed. I’m having fewer issues with sore joints as well as muscles as well as enjoying a much better outlook.
