Ever since turning 50, I’ve struggled to go to bed, but it’s not odd for myself and others to lie in bed for three or four hours before finally falling asleep.
- I officially wake up in an hour or two.
Then I can’t go back to sleep. I tried sticking to a clear bedtime ritual and sleep schedule. I gave up watching television or looking at an ipad screen in the evenings. I ate special foods as well as sprayed our pillow with the scent of lavender. I sipped pop that was supposed to help myself and others sleep as well as even tried over-the-counter sleeping pills; Nothing worked for me. I considered heading to the doctor as well as getting stronger sleeping pills however was scared off by the potential side-effects. It got to the point where I was working out, cleaning as well as doing papers in the middle of the evening. I’d then force myself to get up in the morning as well as go to work. I was so tired all the time as well as yet sleep was impossible, then a coworker of mine proposed I try weed. I had never considered the possibility of cannabis however was eager to try any current option. In our local area, I have access to legal recreational weed, however with a valid identification, I was able to walk into a dispensary, explain our problems to a budtender as well as make a purchase. I had no clue what category of consumption method, strain or potency I might want! The strains she proposed include Blackberry Kush, Granddaddy Purple, Purple Nepal as well as Herijuana, but she commanded that I focus on either indicas or indica-dominant hybrids because they tend to be more soothing. I vary between smokable flower, vapes as well as tinctures. All of these delivery methods provide a genuinely rapid onset of effects. I also prefer to eat a small amount of an edible right before bed because the effects can last hours.
