Medical Cannabis and Sleep

Sleep is essential for our health and well-being, but many people struggle to get enough quality rest at night. Insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety and stress are some of the common factors that can interfere with our sleep patterns and affect our mood, energy and productivity. 
Recent research has shown that cannabis can help regulate our sleep cycle, reduce pain and inflammation, and ease anxiety and stress. In Texas, medical cannabis is legal for over 150 conditions. You can get a prescription for medical cannabis by clicking the link below. 

Cannabinol (CBN)


You may have heard of cannabinol (CBN), a compound derived from cannabis that is known to have sedative effects. But what is CBN and how does it work? CBN is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBN interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is a network of receptors and molecules that regulate various functions in the body, such as mood, pain, appetite and sleep. CBN may bind to some of the same receptors as THC, but with much lower affinity. This means that CBN may have some of the same effects as THC, but to a lesser degree. One of these effects is inducing sleepiness. When CBN and THC are combined, calming effects are produced, and this can be utilized to target sleep-related symptoms.  

For patients who have trouble sleeping due to medical conditions that qualify for the Compassionate Use Program, Texas Original has developed new products that combine CBN and THC in a 1:2 ratio, creating a specific effect to help them rest better. We now offer our Sweet Dreams formula in both gummy and tincture form. They also contain targeted rest terpenes which may  enhance the sedative effects of the primary cannabinoids. 

Our Sweet Dreams products may help relieve symptoms including:  

  • Insomnia
  • Night terrors
  • Muscle spasms
  • Restlessness 

Texas Original Sweet Dreams Gummies are fast-acting, pectin-based, vegan, gluten-free and free of artificial dyes and flavors. Texas Original's Sweet Dreams Tincture is sugar-free, vegan, gluten-free, dye-free and made with simple ingredients.
