Eating vs Smoking:
There are many differences between smoking and eating, or ingesting cannabinoids. The appeal of cannabis infused edibles may lie behind the unlimited, tastier options compared to traditional smoking. It is arguable that edibles are a far healthier alternative to smoking cannabis, due to the negative health effects associated with smoke inhalation.
Each product contains a specified quantity of medical marijuana which is digested in the stomach, or in the mouth, depending.
Edibles are absorbed through the digestive system and may take anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours to fully kick in, compared to the almost instantaneous absorption of cannabinoids through the bloodstream when smoking.
The effects associated with ingesting cannabis are drastically different and longer lasting compared to the effects of smoking cannabis. More often, eating, or ingesting cannabinoids is associated with a body-focused, sedating couch-lock type of high.
Melatonin & CBD
Smokey’s Sleepy Time Melatonin Gummies brings the best of both worlds of CBD and Melatonin into a sweet treat to help ease you to sleep.
Melatonin and CBD oil both promote sleep, but work in different ways to do so.
Unlike regular vitamins and supplements, when you take melatonin it is treated by the body as if it were created internally. Instead of breaking it down and converting it into something usable, your body is able to metabolize melatonin immediately, without further processing. The same is true for CBD oil.
Just how cannabidiol (CBD) is able to yield benefits by replicating your body’s own endocannabinoids, melatonin supplements do the same to help regulate your circadian rhythm, or natural sleep-wake cycle.
During normal waking hours, there is very little melatonin circulating in your body. Instead, there are other hormones like cortisol at work, which keep you alert and awake. But as day turns into night, the levels of melatonin in your system start to rise as the sun goes down, peaking overnight and slowly reducing toward the morning. Taking a melatonin supplement before bed increases the amount of melatonin in the body and can encourage rest and deeper sleep.
Meanwhile, CBD oil promotes sleep by reducing cortisol levels and anxiety. Cortisol levels should naturally fall overnight, but if you’re overly stressed, they can spike and remain high, making falling asleep near impossible. CBD oil has been shown to inhibit the release of cortisol, and could help reduce the stress that’s barring you from a good night’s sleep. Since CBD oil can also help with anxiety, your overall stress levels should dip and remain lower, making relaxation and a good night’s sleep more achievable.
With all this in mind, taking CBD oil and melatonin together may create a powerful aid to fight insomnia. Because cannabidiol and melatonin act on different systems in the body, currently, it is believed there is no risk for adverse side effects when combining the two.
Melatonin signals your body that it is time to sleep, while CBD oil works in tandem to provide overall relaxation and calm. Together, they deliver a one-two punch to insomnia and sleep disturbances.
