What’s This I Hear About CBN And Sleep?

We’ve all come up with different concoctions and rituals to get better sleep. A joint combined with hot tea, yoga, meditation, or a nice book are all common combinations. But never something like this. Created with Papa & Barkley.

There have been several studies linking cannabis to sleep. But the truth behind why cannabis is so effective at promoting sleep remains a bit of a mystery.

We’ve all come up with different concoctions and rituals to attain better sleep. A joint combined with hot tea, yoga, meditation, or a nice book are all common combinations. Oddly enough, they all involve a joint.

But we’ve never really taken a deeper look into what it is in the joint that makes us fall asleep faster or keeps us asleep longer. The only thing we do know is that whatever is happening is a completely natural process.

At the end of the day, cannabis is a plant.

And now:

Thanks to Papa & Barkley and its new Sleep Releaf collection, we can understand what makes this possible and get the product that drives these results delivered to us with a click of a button.

Papa & Barkley Products

All of the products found on the Papa & Barkley lineup are made keeping true to the following standards:

  • All-Natural Ingredients: Using only premium sun-grown cannabis, regenerative practices, and organic farming principles.
  • Artisanal Farming Practices: Hand-planting and hand-harvesting every single plant they use, and following up with non-machine curing processes and small-batch infusions.
  • Clean Processes: 100% solventless and chemical-free extraction methods.
  • Safe Formulas: Rigorous testing protocols that go above and beyond what’s required. They also provide accessible COAs from third-party labs on all products.
  • Efficacious Products: Full spectrum extracts that keep the plant’s complete nutrient profile.

An awesome motto Papa & Barkley goes by that I think is worth sharing is: “Sleep is natural, your solution can be too”.

The Numbers

According to the American Sleep Association, nearly 70 million Americans have some sort of sleep disorder. 30% of adults suffer from insomnia and in North America alone, $35 Billion are spent on sleep aids every year. This number is even expected to rise to $50B by 2025.

Cannabis use right before bed has been a go-to ‘sleep aid’ for many, and in 2020 alone this practice grew by almost double the amount. Making it almost a fact that Americans use cannabis as an alternative to synthetic sleep aids.

With the growing knowledge around cannabis, CBN has taken the stage as one of the main components found in it that helps attain better sleep.

Papa & Barkley delivers targeted sleep solutions based on real-world evidence instead of putting forth random sleep aids that may or may not work. The company’s Sleep Releaf Products contain an in-home use tested formula that combines all elements of the cannabis plant including a healthy mixture of CBN, THC, and CBD.

CBN comes from THC. It is aged THC that has not been consumed or extracted, staying within the plant long enough for it to turn into CBN. The transformation process happens through a natural combination of time, heat, and light. CBN is known for its sedative effects. If you’ve ever gotten tired from smoking old weed, you know first-hand how relaxing CBN can be.

The Papa & Barkley Process

While Papa & Barkley respects the natural profile and processes of the cannabis plant as much as possible, one thing they do not do is leave it all to chance.

First, they’ll submit the sustainably grown cannabis plant to pressure and heat. This is done to obtain the most natural form of cannabis extract known to mankind; Solventless Rosin. They then take the extracted Rosin and put it into a vacuum oven that takes a portion of the extracted THC in it and converts it into CBN. 

This results in an incredibly effective rosin extract that has the perfect mix of CBD, THC, and CBN. Papa & Barkley tests every batch to ensure that the same ratio is kept in all its sleep products; 2 parts CBD, 4 parts THC, and 1 part CBN.

  • CBD: Helps relax and recover from muscular fatigue
  • THC: At the right dose, it helps reduce pain and stress
  • CBN: Promotes sleepiness

This masterful combination helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and ultimately allows you to wake up feeling truly refreshed.

Papa & Barkley team members take their jobs so seriously that they conducted a 2-week in-home use test with 90 participants. Throughout the study the participants were required to take Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Tincture and reported the following effects:

  • Falling asleep 20 minutes faster than usual*
  • 1 additional hour of sleep per night*
  • Waking up 1 less time per night than usual*
  • An 80% improvement in overall sleep quality*
  • 90% of subjects also reported little or no side effects (including grogginess)*

If you add these incredible results up, you get 7 more hours of sleep a week, 30 more hours of sleep a month, and a whopping 15 days more of sleep a year. More than enough to get anyone wanting better sleep to try them!

*Based on the average self-reported experience of over 90 participants, who used The Sleep Tincture for two weeks at one full dropper per night. Cannabinoid ratio is the same for all Papa & Barkley CBN Sleep Releaf products, individual results may vary.
