When it’s time for bed all you want is to relax and fall asleep. But instead, your noggin decides it’s time to activate. Then proceeds to replay elaborate branches of nano-second movies about your life with intrusive ruminating thoughts. How fun is that!
Not being able sleep can piss people off. It’s not uncommon for them to punch the pillow, kick the blankets, toss and turn with a few choice words before getting up to do something productive.
It could be our smart devices. It might be the stress of the this crazy covid-19 crisis. It could be family worries or employment worries. It could be that your brain won’t shut off when it’s time to sleep.
Whatever the reason for insomnia, it sucks!
If your not sleeping, then just know that your not alone. Our country has a systemic lack of sleep problem that is affecting millions of people. Do a quick google search and you’ll find study after study about how millions of American’s don’t get enough sleep.
Insomnia is the most common of the sleep complaints. It’s when you can’t fall asleep or stay asleep even though you had plenty of time to get a full nights rest.
The effects of insomnia impacts nearly every aspect of life. Studies show that insomnia negatively affects work performance, impairs decision-making and can damage relationships. In most cases, people with insomnia report a worse overall quality of life.
The experts say that those who experience prolonged periods of insomnia are more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression, or even heart failure.
Sleep is very important to us and our body systems like the ECS need time to rest and recharge every night to stay at an optimal healthy state.
But most insomnia sufferers already know about this stuff because they’ve been living it!
What they want to know is what can be done about it, without taking sleeping pills.
Doctors tend to prescribe the z-drug sleeping pills to facilitate resetting sleep patterns. These drugs work by binding to receptors in the brain causing it to partially shutdown giving you a feeling of drowsiness.
These Ambien Zombi drugs are non-benzodiazepines (a fancy way of saying they’re not that addicting). They sedate by bringing the body to a partial sleep-like state. Common names for the z-drugs are, Ambien (Zolpidem), Lunesta (Exzopiclone), and Sonata (Zaleplon).
Side effects from prescribed sedatives and other OTC drugs reads like a bad pharmaceutical commercial and it scares the crap out most people. Which is why so many insomnia sufferers are seeking natural alternatives.
One such alternative way to get better sleep, naturally, is with Hemp derived cannabinoids like CBD (cannabidoil). CBD has already been helping people combat inflammation, nausea, chronic pain and depression for years now.
But did you know there is are some lesser known cannabinoids that are helping people calm their mind and fall asleep using nothing but nature?
CBN & CBG, the lessor known cannabinoids are starting to make a name for themselves with helping people calm their mind body.
Both these cannabinoids are difficult to extract and require large amounts of high quality hemp to process. Which explains why they are more expensive than their more famous cannabinoid cousin CBD.
CBN (cannabinol) is basically aged cannabis that provides a natural sedating effect. The jury is still undecided due to lack of scientific research, but anecdotal reports suggest that CBN works by binding to the cb1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system to help you fall asleep and stay asleep naturally.
CBG (cannabigero) is thought to be effective in treating glaucoma as it may reduce the intra-ocular pressure. It appears to have powerful vasodilator and neuroprotective effects, and may prove to play significant role in regulating blood pressure. It’s also being studied for inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohns & Huntington’s, colon cancer fighting, appetite stimulant, bladder contractions, and an antibacterial agent.
It’s not fully known yet whether the strong analgesic properties coupled with anti-inflammatory that influence a deeper relaxation allowing one to fall asleep. More scientific studies need to be conducted and one day we hope to have the answers as to why cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and CBD seem to work so well.
Priceland is one of the few companies in the country that has been able to successfully blend both the CBN and CBG. Our intent was to help customers who suffer from chronic insomnia with calming the mind (CBG) so they can get real sleep and feel rested (CBN) without any hangover type effects.
Our brand new 1:1 formula is called CBNight-Night. It’s bottle contains 450mg each of CBN and CBG. If your new to using cannabinoids then it’s suggested that you start small, following our beginners guideline with a micro dose just before bedtime.
