When you’re desperately trying to sleep at 1 am knowing what cannabinoids can help and how fast can be a lifesaver. The same information is just as important when it’s dinnertime and you need to get up and make something nutritious.
So when we went looking for more guidance on whether or not Delta 9 make you sleepy, we were surprised with the lack of information available. This is why The Hemp Doctor is your source for the best information on novel and traditional cannabinoids: we’ll do the hard research when what you need to know isn’t available.
How does Delta 9 work in your body?
Delta 9 THC is the substance for which cannabis is best known. More prevalent in marijuana, Delta 9 THC exists in all cannabis plants, including hemp. To understand if Delta 9 make you sleepy or helps you achieve a good rest, we need to go back to the understanding of how it works in your body.
Delta 9 THC is the substance that causes your body to experience a psychoactive effect, also known as a high, from cannabis products. D9 binds to the CB1 receptor in your endocannabinoid system creating the euphoric feeling and effect that makes users feel high.
But does this make you feel sleepy? Well, the answer is for most people yes, but it depends on how you define sleepiness. For the purposes of this article, when we talk about feeling sleepy, we’re referring to a sensation of relaxing or rest that enables a user to fall asleep with ease.
This sense of ease and relaxation can be brought on by smoke or eating Delta 9 THC products.
Does Delta 9 make everyone tired?
We take an individualized approach to our customers and know that not everyone responds to cannabinoids the same way. While all mammals have an endocannabinoid system that allows cannabinoids to have an impact on their body, each person’s unique biology can change how they experience cannabinoids.
For a small subset of people the “euphoric high” is more like a skyscraper of paranoia. And that’s OK! If Delta 9 THC winds you up, then you may consider using other cannabinoids that don’t have a psychoactive effect (like CBD and CBG), or less of a psychoactive effect (like Delta 8).
The majority of users will experience an intense relaxation but the way to tell if you’re the exception is to try a very small amount of Delta 9 and ease into its use. If that means cutting the gummies in half or taking only a half puff off the vape and waiting a half an hour, it’s better to have a slow, positive experience than a fast, negative one. Using a blend of cannabinoids can also reduce the potential for a negative experience, there’s a reason these cannabinoids grow together in nature!
Does the entourage effect help?
When it comes to the effects of cannabinoids in general, the entourage effect can help offset downsides of the experience while intensifying the wellness impacts of the products. Combining multiple cannabinoids with Delta 9 THC will produce a more intense sensation of relaxation because of the entourage effect.
For this reason, The Hemp Doctor offers a variety of options, including cannabinoid blends that will help intensify the restful experience.
What products does The Hemp Doctor offer for the nighttime?
While many of our products can be used at all times of the day, we do have specific Nighttime Gummies. These gummies offer a blend of cannabinoids to take full advantage of the entourage effect. This boost to restfulness and relaxation is our favorite thing, late at night, when we’re struggling to wind down.
These nighttime gummies take full advantage of the entourage effect, blending Delta 9, CBD, and CBN to give you a euphoric lift and a relaxing state of mind before you turn in for the evening. These don’t contain melatonin, so people who are sensitive to that hormone can use these with ease!
If you’re new to using these gummies we recommend starting to take them 30 to 45 minutes before you’re ready to go to bed. For the first time cut the gummy in half and eat it, then if in 30 minutes you’re not feeling the desired result, take the second half.
What other options are available and what works best?
Are you wondering what else you can try, including vape, flower, and edibles?
If you’re looking for a Delta 9 THC isolate or blend that’ll help you relax, you might be wondering what works best? While we highlighted the Nighttime Gummies (because they’re amazing) the answer isn’t as simple as picking a single product out and saying it’s for the best. Instead, at The Hemp Doctor, we take an individualized approach to understanding what works best for you.
The first question we’d ask is, are you looking for a product that’ll encourage the entourage effect? If you want specific control over what you consume, you may be looking for a product that’s an isolate, like our Delta 9 THC Chocolate. If you want to experience the entourage effect, our Kayo THC Blend gummies might be the way to go.
Once you know what experience you want, the method of consumption becomes important. Do you prefer to vape or smoke your cannabinoids? Our Delta 9 and THCa flower options can help you get the rest you desire and taste incredible during consumption. Additionally, the method of inhalation, like vaping or smoking, creates a faster “up” experience than a gummy or softgel.
We offer a range of vapes with a blend of cannabinoids for your best rest-inducing experience.
This means that if you want a slow steady release into a good night’s rest, your best option is likely the aforementioned Delta 9 THC/CBD/CBN Full Spectrum Nighttime Gummies.
