CBN Cannabis Oil for People that Struggle to Sleep

Insomnia can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions, unhealthy sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors. Recently, researchers have begun to think about insomnia as a problem of your brain being unable to stop being awake (your brain has a sleep cycle and a wake cycle—when one is turned on the other is turned off—insomnia can be a problem with either part of this cycle: too much wake drive or too little sleep drive). It’s important to first understand what could be causing your sleep difficulties.

Medical Causes of Insomnia

There are many medical conditions (some mild and others more serious) that can lead to insomnia. In some cases, a medical condition itself causes insomnia, while in other cases, symptoms of the condition cause discomfort that can make it difficult for a person to sleep.

Examples of medical conditions that can cause insomnia are:

  • Nasal/sinus allergies

  • Gastrointestinal problems such as reflux

  • Endocrine problems such as hyperthyroidism

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease

  • Chronic pain

  • Low back pain

               

This treatment guideline is to be used for products, cannabis oils, that are only endorsed by Medical Cannabis.Review The guide is designed for people that have difficulty sleeping. Cannabis oil, CBN is sleep specific.

STORAGE OF CANNABIS OILS

Cannabis oils are best kept in the fridge when not being used. If this is not possible, store in a cool dry dark cupboard. The oils have a shelf life of many years.

DIRECTION FOR USE

For dosing using a tincture, do not dilute in water or juice. It’s easiest to accurately dispense the drops from a tincture into a teaspoon and then consume. Otherwise drop directly into your mouth.

CBN

CBN in very small dosages will enable you to have a good night’s sleep.

Dosage: Start on 1 drop half hour before bedtime, it’s often sufficient. If the desired effect is not reached you can increase 1 drop at a time. Often less is more with CBN. Please be wary.

Recommended treatment:

We recommend using a tincture, with starting dosage of:

  • CBN: 1 – 5 drops – half an hour before bed. (Start on 1 drop, its often sufficient. Increase gradually, 1 drop at a time.)

Tinctures (1:10) are 1000mg of cannabinoid extract in 10ml MCT, 500+ drops per bottle (dropper top bottle). Each drop is 2mg.

MCR is unable to comment on “other” cannabis oils whose origins are unbeknown to us. We recommend reading about cannabis oil in South Africa before making any decisions.

WHAT DETERMINES THE QUALITY OF CANNABIS OIL

MCR endorsed cannabis oils are all made from medical grade organic cannabis (flowers) only. The oils are processed in laboratory conditions using the latest technology similar, if not the same, equipment used in the legal states of America. Co2 based extraction cannabis oil is the latest, cleanest, toxin (solvent) free and most expensive extraction technique requiring specialised machinery. The entire process from soil to oil is controlled after all what you put in is what you get out. The oils are not lab tested.

Side Effects

Everyone’s tolerance varies, rather be safe than sorry. Start low and increase dosages until desired dosage is reach. This way one avoids getting high altogether. If too much CBN oil is consumed too quickly  a “high” or “stoned” feeling could be experienced, a general change in perception, euphoria (heightened mood), and an increase in appetite. Short term side effects may include a decrease in short-term memory, dry mouth, impaired motor skills, red eyes, and feelings of paranoia or anxiety. In the event of getting high its best to take a nap and sleep it off. The “feeling” will pass.
