It’s Olivia, founder of Kush Queen here! Today we are going to dig into the minor cannabinoid, CBN, and why we choose to bring CBN Gummies to our Gummies Rx product line.
If you didn’t know, my family and I created Kush Queen products to help me treat my bipolar disorder. From a young age, I’ve dealt with various modes of mania like high energy and the reduced need for sleep. When I was 18 years old, the first thing I found the cannabis plant to help me with was sleep. That was the real turn point in my journey to discovering the benefits of specific major and minor cannabinoids, especially CBN.
My Journey To Better Sleep
A decade ago, there were no cannabis gummies or CBD ingestibles, like literally none. So, like most people trying to use cannabis for sleep, I would have to smoke every single night before bed. Over time, smoking nightly just didn’t work.
Like the cannabis industry's evolution, I had my journey in unlocking the power of specific delivery methods. Once I discovered edibles, it was over for my nightly smoking routine. My dear friend, Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC as most of us refer to it, in the form of an edible became my nightly routine. I would eat chocolate or gummies to get to sleep and stay asleep every night. But if I’m being honest, I always struggled with my dose, either too much or too little, never just right so I could sleep and not wake up feeling high.
When we ingest a cannabis edible, a very sophisticated process occurs in our body. The Delta 9 THC is converted into 11 hydroxy in your liver. During this conversion the molecule’s potency increases. So, even though I was an old pro I frequently woke up feeling high and groggy. Nailing my dose was a big problem with THC edibles, even after 11 years of cannabis use.
Then I Learned About CBN
There was always a rumor that CBN could help people sleep better than THC. When I was a budtender, people would come in looking for yellowed or decayed weed. Why? Well, aging cannabis was reportedly high in CBN. The decay was a sign of this lesser-known cannabinoid or minor cannabinoid, CBN being present.
Back then accessing CBN was the problem, you couldn’t easily access CBN or consume cannabis that was grown specifically to highlight its properties.
Why We Created CBN Gummies
With the recent growth of the cannabis and hemp markets, CBN has become more accessible. Once reliable access opened up, the Kush Queen team knew we had to explore this molecule.
All of our product testing surrounded one question: would CBN be able to be better than THC for sleep?
Once we made our first batch of CBN gummies, we entered a serious phase of testing. You know I was first in line!
With every single new product concept, I always battle the question, is this placebo, or is this a consistent targeted effect? But night after night, I got the best sleep of my life and the most life-changing part is that I had no hangover like with traditional THC edibles.
After taking Gummies Rx Sleep CBD and CBN gummies, I wake in the morning feeling well-rested. Ok, so that is my experience, what about others?
Our beta testers reported similar results. We even experimented with asking some to take it during the day. Would CBN have the ability to make us sleepy mid-day? It did and it's not advised to take when you need to be functioning and alert.
For Me, Sleeping Well Equals Being Well
Sleep is the foundation of my wellness. Without sleep, I am simply a moody mess. I get sick easier, I get angry easier, and science supports why. So many major things go down when we sleep and the cannabis plant has always been the plant to take me to my best slumber.
Now that we have the innovation and science to bring you our CBN gummies, it feels like we are truly harnessing the power of the plant.Give our Gummies Rx Sleep CBD and CBN gummies a try to get to sleep and not have the next morning clouded by the previous night’s dose.
