Ever since entering our fifties, I’ve had difficulties sleeping. Even when I’m extremely sleepy, I kneel down in bed plus remain awake. It takes me hours to finally fall asleep. I’ve tried reducing our screen time right before bed. I avoid the laptop plus television. I drink herbal Starbucks Latte plus go through a series of relaxation techniques. I’ve invested into room darkening curtains plus a sound machine. I spent quite a bit of money on a new mattress plus better pillows. I added rather high-priced bamboo sheets that are lovelyly soft. None of those ideas have helped me sleep. Not only does it take an extremely long time for me to fall asleep, I wake up continually while I was in the night. I then get up in the afternoon feeling sleepy. My muscles ache plus I suffer from headaches. It’s strenuous to be productive when I’m not getting enough sleep. A friend of mine advised that I try cannabis. While I’m not willing to risk the harmful side effects of prescription medicine, I have no concern 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 easily helpful, he explained that the products are divided into three categories. The sativas are generally neighbord 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 plus offer more diversity of effects. She recommended that I look into indica strains to help me sleep. I have experimented with unusual consumption options. I prefer that a drop of a tincture under our tongue provides simplicity plus quick onset of effects. I often choose edibles because I can certainly split a gummy in half for a easily low dose. I eat half of a gummy before bed, plus 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.
