One of the really exciting things about becoming an adult is every now and then you find yourself laying in bed for hours staring at the ceiling waiting for sleep to hit you. Instead, you’re laying there wide awake (somehow still wired) and thinking about everything from something really awkward you said five years ago to that project at work you’ve been avoiding for the last three weeks.
Unfortunately, this is exactly where I’m at right now with my sleep schedule. As the kids say, I’m over it. In an effort to beat this unwanted added bonus to my life, I decided to turn to the best place I knew for sleep deprivation: my local dispensary.
During my visit, I vented to my poor budtender (who I’m sure wasn’t interested in hearing my life story) about my difficulties sleeping. They recommended I try Cheeba Chews Sleepy Time edible.
Each pack comes with 20 pieces and has a 2:1 THC:CBN ratio with a mix of the old reliable melatonin. Each piece is dosed at 5mg of THC and 2.5mg of CBN. Never heard of CBN? Well, let’s get into it then!
CBN, or cannabinol, is a cannabinoid that doesn’t usually show up in high amounts of marijuana, unlike THC and CBD. Similar to CBD, CBN does not produce psychoactive effects except when consumed in large doses. Instead, it tends to make the user drowsy and can also be used to help any physical pain. This makes CBN an ideal ingredient in a sleep-assisting edible like Cheeba Chews Sleepy Time.
As I am a wimp when it comes to edibles, I only ingested one piece the first time I used this, not entirely sure what the effects would be. I figured I could always eat more if I didn’t feel they were working. I took one about 30-45 minutes before I went to bed as that’s usually about how long it takes for me to feel the effects of an edible.
I performed my usual nighttime ritual of flipping on a mindless TV show I’ve watched dozens of times, in this case, Forensic Files. One minute I was watching police officers investigate the source of a fatal fire, and the next I was drooling all over one of my poor couch pillows dreaming about going to a wedding in which I had nothing to wear only to watch it get ruined by a giant of the Jack and the Beanstalk sort. No idea what this means for my psyche, but I’m choosing to see the silver lining in that I actually fell asleep in record time!
Somehow, I managed to lift myself from my stupor and stumble back to my bed where I continued to get a solid’s night sleep. Nothing could wake me up. Not even my alarm clock which I snoozed through at least three times.
The point is, not being able to sleep sucks. Trudging through your day when all you want to do is lay down on the floor and nap is no way to live. Stop your suffering and try Cheeba Chews Sleepy Time. Trust us, your eye bags will thank you.
