Which cannabis strains have been reported to promote sleep?

Indica Dominant Strains:

While there are many different cannabis strains on the market, there are certain cannabis strains that will help you to get that good night’s sleep you’ve been wanting. When you think of cannabis strains you typically think of Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. Indica dominant strains are great for offering exactly what you’re looking for with its calming and relaxing properties. Indica dominant strains can produce a body high, that’s great for helping you prepare to end the day.

CBD Products:

When customers look for products to help with anxiety, or products with anti-inflammation properties there are many great options. CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid recognized for its many great properties, and can help  you relax and alleviate the stresses of the day. Customers have said CBD has also helped  ensure and enhance a restful night’s sleep. Cannabis strains with higher CBD content typically offer the relaxation you are looking for, without the psychoactive effects of THC.

CBN Products: 

CBN is a cannabinoid that forms when THC ages, or is exposed to heat and light. This is why aged cannabis contains more CBN, and is more likely to make you sleepy compared to fresh cannabis. Customers may look for natural products with sedative effects and help with sleep, and there are many options to choose from. CBN is known for its sleep inducing effects and is often associated with calmness and relaxation.

THC Content:

While THC can induce relaxation, high levels of THC may also lead to increased alertness or potential nervousness, in some individuals. Strains with lower to moderate THC levels are often preferred before going to bed for sleep to help reduce the risk of some effects of very high THC levels, and promote a balanced and restful sleep.

Terpene Content:

Cannabis terpenes are aromatic compounds found in the cannabis plant that contribute to its distinct smell and taste. Terpenes play a crucial role in shaping the effects of cannabis, the specific combination of terpenes present in the cannabis strain can influence its overall effect, and provide a unique experience.

Myrcene – This terpene is known for its excellent sleep-inducing and satisfying properties. Myrcene is commonly found in indica-dominant strains and is believed to contribute to the “couch-lock” effect often associated with these strains.

Linalool – Linalool has a floral aroma that  is found in lavender, which is known for its calming and relaxing properties. In cannabis, linalool may contribute to feelings of tranquility and relaxation that can help promote a better night of rest for you.

Caryophyllene – Caryophyllene is a complex terpene found in many herbs and spices. This terpene, most prevalent in black pepper and cloves. Customers come in looking for products with anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate pain and discomfort.  Caryophyllene helps relax not just the body but the mind, making it perfect for ending a long day at work.

Understanding how cannabis can aid with sleep:

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network in the body that helps regulate various functions, including sleep, mood, appetite, and pain sensation. Cannabinoids bind with cannabinoid receptors in the ECS, and this interaction helps to maintain homeostasis in the body. Cannabis can help you get a better sleep by promoting calm and relaxation, helping you rest and sleep throughout the night.
