Sleep impacts your physical and mental health. When you sleep well, you are more alert, have a clearer mind, your mood is better, and you are more energized. When you don’t sleep well, it can greatly affect your health. Your doctor might prescribe sleeping pills, but many of those have side effects that are undesirable.
That’s why at MyJane we want to give you the gift of sleep and help you understand how cannabis can help you sleep better naturally.
We surveyed over 40,000 women and discovered that your #1 fight is a sleepless night. That’s why we’re finding the solutions for you to get the sleep you need. In addition to other natural sleep solutions from our team, MyJane offers sleep solutions in our thoughtfully curated canna-boxes.
Cannabis and Sleep
According to Dr. Michael Brues, PhD, cannabis can help insomnia and other sleep problems. Studies show that cannabis shortens the time it takes to fall asleep- an average of 30 minutes faster than usual. Read the study here.
The top four cannabis consumption methods are:
Inhalation (vaping): Vaporization is the safest way to inhale your cannabis and vaporizers and vape pens emit much less odor than any type of smoking. Vaping is ideal for when you want to get to sleep fast – you can feel the impact within 1-15 minutes.
Ingestion (edibles, teas, and more): This is one of the safest ways to consume cannabis, but understand that the effects of eating cannabis may be more pronounced at onset. You can expect to feel the impact within 1-2 hours, so this is the perfect consumption method for easing into sleep and staying asleep throughout the night.
Oral absorption (tinctures): Tinctures and sublinguals can be taken under the tongue or mixed with water or other beverages. Some tinctures are alcohol-based and some are oil-based. You may expect to feel the effects of alcohol-based tinctures within 15 minutes and oil-based ones within 30 minutes (be sure to wait at least an hour before dosing again). This is another great option when it comes to sleeping soundly.
Topical (balms, salves and more): This is one of the safest ways to consume cannabis due to the non-psychoactive effects and may be the best option for certain pains or ailments. Want to drift to sleep almost instantaneously? Topicals may be your go-to sleep solution.
