A person in bed enjoys deep, restful sleep.

What Are The Best Edibles For Sleep?

Getting a good night’s sleep makes you feel rested and refreshed the next day. Unfortunately, good-quality sleep can sometimes be hard to come by.

Plenty of our customers use federally legal, hemp-derived edibles to get more rest. The cannabinoids in these products can offer pain relief, which is a major obstacle to a good night’s sleep. And the cozy and warm overall feeling they offer helps, too.

Let’s look at why so many people use edibles specifically to help them sleep better. Then, we’ll review some of the very best edibles for sleep.

Why Choose Edibles for Help with Sleeping?

Foundational Info about Cannabinoids and Sleep

Delta 9 THC is a cannabinoid — the primary active chemical among many found in cannabis plants. Research into Delta 9 demonstrates positive connections between cannabinoids and improved sleep.

A peer-reviewed study published in the Canadian Pharmacists Journal offers some context. It states lower doses of Delta 9 can help people fall asleep faster and more easily. It can also lead to longer periods of sleep. It’s important to note, however, that higher doses can lead to a reduction in REM sleep.

At Delta 8 Resellers, we offer a wide range of federally legal, hemp-derived cannabinoids. We want to be clear that this research only applies to Delta 9. However, cannabinoids are very similar in their structure and often, their effects. That means that many others besides Delta 9, like Delta 8, could also offer support for better sleep.

How do Edibles Work? What Makes Them Unique?

When you eat edibles, your body handles the cannabinoids in them differently than it does when you vape or smoke. Instead of your lungs absorbing the cannabinoids, your digestive tract and liver process them. That leads to a different active metabolite (a chemical created in your body from another chemical) and a different experience. This is true for Delta 8 THC gummies and every other kind of edible you might have.

These are the qualities that make the edible experience unique, from our guide to edible dosing:

  • It can take between 30 minutes and 2 hours to start feeling the effects
  • The high lasts significantly longer than smoking or vaping
  • The high tends to start very gradually and end the same way
  • The experience can feel more intense than inhaling smoke or vapor

Are Edibles Legal to Purchase?

The edibles we offer are derived from hemp and legal on the federal level. The 2018 Farm Bill made it federally legal to commercially grow hemp containing no more than 0.3% THC.

However, some states and municipalities have stricter laws and regulations. It’s always a good idea to check on the laws in your area before making a purchase.

Do Edibles Make You More Sleepy than Smoking, Vaping, and Other Options?

There isn’t definitive proof that edibles are better at inducing sleep than other options. However, we know that edibles tend to offer a more intense and long-lasting experience.

Some edibles include additional ingredients that have scientifically proven sleep benefits. That includes offerings like Canna River Sleep Gummies. These are CBN and CBD gummies for sleep. However, they also include melatonin (a chemical that serves as a sleep aid in certain circumstances) along with those cannabinoids.

Based on user reports and our own customers’ reviews, we know many people choose edibles for sleep support. They’re satisfied with the results, too.

That’s not the same thing as scientific evidence. However, it helps us understand how users tend to feel about edibles, like gummies for sleep, on a more practical and personal level.

The Best Edibles for Sleep

Which Types of Edibles Help You Sleep?

Looking for the best CBD edibles for sleep or the best THC edibles for sleep? With so many cannabinoids and types of edibles available, it can feel difficult to sort through all of the options. Here are some suggestions for finding edibles for sleep that can work for you:

  • Look at the specific types of cannabinoids the product offers. While the many Delta THC variations and other cannabinoids have similar effects, they aren’t exactly the same. Our guide to the different types of Delta THC can help you find a cannabinoid recognized as more mellow or relaxing.
  • Check out the additional ingredients. Look for additions like melatonin. This chemical is proven to help with certain sleep issues, as the National Institutes of Health explains.
  • Look at how each product is positioned. We only partner with the best brands in the industry. That means we trust them to offer accurate info about the intended use and effects of their products.

Can Different Cannabinoids have Different Effects on Sleep?

The truth is that edibles affect everyone a little bit differently. Natural variations in our metabolism and digestive system, along with other factors, make the experience change from person to person.

On an anecdotal level, we also know that cannabinoids can have varying effects. Some, like Delta 11, have a reputation for being especially potent and even border on offering psychedelic effects. Others, like Delta 10, are recognized as more mild and gentle.

There isn’t enough scientific evidence to be sure about the sleep effects of every cannabinoid. However, understanding these differences may help you find the best THC gummy or other edible for sleep.

What’s the Best Way to Take Edibles for Sleep?

Trying to figure out the best edible dose for sleep? Wondering how to time your dose?

Taking what we know about edibles into account, here are a few tips for potentially getting better sleep with them.

  • Remember that it can take 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel edibles working and that edibles kick in gradually. Take your dose well before you start getting ready for bed. Don’t wait until you want to fall asleep.
  • Start with a smaller dose — either half or all of the recommended dose — before working your way up. The effects may feel too intense with a large dose.
  • Try to follow good sleep habits in general. The CDC offers some simple, easy-to-follow recommendations for better sleep.
