When it comes to neuroprotection, quality sleep is essential. This is the kind of sleep that is deep, restorative, uninterrupted, and restful. Unfortunately for many of us, naps don’t cut it. Now, sleep quality can be fairly subjective. Every person is different. From our genes to functional adaptations in response to life, how we sleep can vary greatly. However, our ability to achieve the subjective thresholds for quality sleep can now be more easily and objectively achieved thanks to insights from a recent 2021 study of cannabinol (CBN).

This study of 60 participants utilized small doses (1-4mg) of a water-soluble form of CBN. What they found was a significant improvement in duration and quality of sleep. Participants were able to fall asleep faster, stay asleep for longer, and progressed well through the various stages of sleep. Even patients who awoke during the night were able to easily fall back asleep. As a result, the participants woke up feeling rested.

Accessing quality can sometimes be difficult given sleep is beyond the realm of conscious control. If only we could will ourselves into a good night’s rest. CBN and other cannabinoids, however, show promising results when it comes to the physiological components of falling asleep and staying asleep. In the future, perhaps the only willpower we might have to exert when falling asleep is taking a water-soluble form of CBN.
