THC makes my mind active too, to the point where I can’t sleep and walls become very interesting to stare at. What works for me is CBN (not CBD) and you get it by ageing the THC. I used to put the marijuana flower in a mason jar in my window for about a month but then figured out a quicker way by way of a UV light in a box. CBN is considered “nature’s benzo” and I think it was discovered by “recreational enthusiasts” after finding an old bag of pot that had been forgotten and therefore was aged. It makes me very sleepy, relaxed, and I’m able to turn off my thoughts and go to sleep. I primarily have PLMD now (LDN seems to have stopped my RLS except for rare, mild, and short lived events) and CBN doesn’t stop the movements. Along with a cocktail of low dose medications I’m able to sleep and feel moderately rested most days. You won’t hear about CBN a lot but if you ask about it people are usually familiar with it at dispensaries. Although not many doctors familiar with medical marijuana are familiar with it. Many think I’m messing up how I’m saying CBD when I explain my protocol, but recently I saw a naturopath for my mother who has sleep problems and the doctor asked if we had tried CBN, so hopefully it’s catching on.
