How to Sleep Better: CBN + Terpenes

CBN-Oil-For-Sleep-Rare-Cannabinoids

Being able to relax and get enough sleep are key to mental and physical wellness. However, it’s easy to get into a negative cycle of anxiety and insomnia, which can lead to headaches, fatigue, and even cognitive impairments and weight gain. So, how can we break this detrimental pattern? In addition to adopting healthy sleep hygiene habits, specific cannabinoids and terpenes may be able to help.

Here, we’ll be taking a closer look at rare cannabinoid CBN (cannabinol), which has been found to help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, and three terpenes in Hawaiian Choice Relax CBD designed to melt stress away: Linalool, Myrcene and Terpinolene. We’ll also discuss the nighttime benefits of euphoric delta-8-THC.

CBN for Sleep

CBN (cannabinol) is a rare cannabinoid that is formed when THC is exposed to oxygen or heat. It has the strongest sedative properties of any cannabinoid and was once even compared to pharmaceutical drug Diazepam (Valium) by Steep Hill, a leading cannabis science, technology and lab testing company. The company also says that taking concentrated CBN can treat insomnia

Other studies show that CBN’s ability to help people fall asleep quickly and stay asleep longer can be enhanced even further by combining it with THC or specific terpenes that also encourage relaxation and sleep. 

If you’re interested in trying CBN for sleep, Rare Cannabinoid Company offers a purified 500mg CBN oil and a 1:1 CBN CBD blend. We also have a 500mg Delta-8-THC. This hemp-derived form of THC is about half to two-thirds as intoxicating as cannabis-derived Delta-9-THC and offers a smoother high that is much more likely to reduce anxiety and ease you into a dreamy state of relaxation.

Specific Terpenes for Relaxation

Terpenes are other naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis, hemp and other plants that, in addition to having different aromas and tastes, also offer unique treatment properties. Just like cannabinoids, they can be combined with each other for specific effects.

Relax CBD was designed to ease feelings of stress or anxiety, helping you unwind and get the rest you need. To achieve this, Hawaiian Choice added three specific terpenes to the 750mg Hawaiian CBD oil. The three terpenes are:

Linalool: is the active calming ingredient in lavender and has a floral lavender scent. It may aid in the treatment of anxiety and depression.

Myrcene: known for its sedating properties it has been used for throughout history to treat insomnia, pain and inflammation.

Terpinolene: offers relaxing, calming properties and promotes sleep. May also offer antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

Hawaiian Choice also adds organic or wild gathered Hawaiian passion fruit, pineapple, hibiscus, noni and honey to all tinctures.
