Breaking Down our Sleep Bars
As we age, difficulty sleeping becomes more and more of an issue. Researchers estimate that between 40% and 70% of older adults have chronic sleep issues.
Finding a harder time falling asleep, they wake up more often during the night and earlier in the morning, therefore decreasing the amount of sleep time.
We find numerous products on the market to assist in 1. Falling asleep, and 2. Staying asleep.
One area that has is not always discussed is 3. Waking up refreshed.
Whether it be Marijuana or CBD, many older adults have found much success from these cannabis products when it comes to sleep. Since Blue Planet Chocolate is a chocolate manufacturer and believer in chocolate being the best delivery system for Cannabis products, we will concentrate in this area.
Blue Planet Chocolate currently offers three different “Night time” bars which have achieved many success’s in those who have used them to help in sleep.
What are the differences? First we will separate CBD from Delta 8 THC. CBD is non-intoxicating whereas Delta 8 THC IS intoxicating. So, if you do not wish to feel intoxicated or are not used to the effects of marijuana, CBD is the proper choice. If an intoxicating effect is preferred, Delta 8 is your best choice.
The other major differences are between Melatonin and CBN.
Melatonin is a hormone primarily released by the pineal gland at night, and has long been associated with control of the sleep–wake cycle. As a dietary supplement, it is often used for the short-term treatment of insomnia, such as from jet lag or shift work, and is typically taken orally. The down side is some people feel the “hangover” effect the next day and it takes longer to wake up and feel refreshed. However, most people do not have a problem with the melatonin.
CBN, cannabinol, is a non-intoxicating minor cannabinoid that’s naturally found in the hemp plant. CBN is a coumpound used widely across the world with therapeutic benefits for sleep and tranquility. The sleep benefits seem to be beneficial to many and without the “hangover” effect often associated with melatonin.
CBD Chocolate – Contains no intoxicating feelings, but often helps as an anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and a relaxant, is offered in two night time varieties.
CBD Nighttime Bar - CBD with Melatonin - 250mg CBD isolate with 30mg melatonin in dark chocolate was our first bar to assist with sleep. The response has been very good with minimal suggestions of tiredness in the morning.
CBD Nighttime Synergy Bar - CBD with CBN and Valerian Root - CBN is used as the main sleep component with Valerian root, ,helpful with sleep and anxiety to assist. The 500mg of CBD will also assist with relaxation leading to a better nights sleep.
Delta 8 Chocolate – Whereas CBD is non-intoxicating, Delta 8 THC is intoxicating, much like its cousin Delta 9 THC (marijuana). It is also said to assist with sleep by itself.
Delta 8 Sleepytime Bar - By combining 500mg of Delta 8 along with 100mg of CBN and 250mg of Valerian root, we feel this chocolate bar will cover all three components earlier described. Through focus groups, the results of 1. Falling asleep, 2. Staying asleep, and 3. Waking up refreshed have been best achieved through our Delta 8 Sleeptime bar.
