In a recent study, one in four Americans develops insomnia each year. That's roughly 80 million people that have a hard time getting some sleep. Lucky cannabis can help with that.

Cannabis can help with shutting your mind and body down to get some restful sleep. Small doses of the right strains can easily help with pain, mitigate stress, and not only make you fall asleep but stay asleep. All of this with minimal to no side effects. More and more people are coming into dispensaries looking for sleep aids to help them out but nothing reaches out beside a solid Indica. Indica-rich cannabis strains, whether in whatever form you'd like to use are proven to give you better sleep and pain relief (Body highs). However, while the effects of inhaled cannabis are felt within a few minute's time, they only last about 90 minutes, on average. Edibles take 30 minutes - 1 hour to kick in but will last 2-4 hours. Purely preference and you can always change back and forth.

For many dealing with insomnia, you might need something a little stronger. This is where you should consider edibles for your nightly routine. Their tasty and usually in the form of something like a cookie or a fruit gummy. These again work much better but do take longer to show effects. This delayed with edibles is worth the wait, however, as edibles offer hours of relief compared to inhaled cannabis (Smoking). The next time you are heading to bed, try a small 5mg of an Indica edible. You may or may not feel a "high' but you'll defiantly feel more relaxed and ready to sleep.
