Does delta-8 really help you sleep?
As delta-8 THC grows in popularity, many early adopters are reporting back on its potential as a sleep aid. But does it live up to the hype?
In case you’re not familiar with delta-8 THC, let’s get you caught up: The THC you’re most familiar with is delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, which is still federally illegal. But hemp-derived CBD—which is what you find in over-the-counter and mail-order CBD products—can be synthesized in a lab to delta-8. It’s very similar chemically to classic THC, but different enough that it’s not regulated the same way. Its effects are still euphoric, but not quite the same. Some describe it as the halfway point between CBD and THC.
We’re learning a lot about delta-8 THC, but scientific research on the cannabinoid is still in its infancy. What we know about its effects is anecdotal, but loyal consumers report that the results are very real. And while some are using delta-8 for the “high” it produces, many people are reporting relying on it for something more essential: Sleep. Aptly named retailer MOONWLKR is a big one people turn to for a trip to dreamland, especially those in states still under cannabis prohibition.

But is it really working? Like any cannabinoid, the way delta-8 affects your body is going to be unique to you. But for these members of the MOONWLKR community, it’s a resounding yes.
Does delta-8 help you fall asleep?
“Fell into a sleep like death, by which I mean I slept and didn’t wake up every hour,” writes Renee Boyet of MOONWLKR’s Watermelon Zkittlez gummies. “I was on a [medication] for ten years… spent the last six months of 2020 weaning myself off and my previous sleep problems have been haunting me. Sleep paralysis, nightmares, restlessness, unable to fall or stay asleep.”
“Fell into a sleep like death, by which I mean I slept and didn’t wake up every hour”
After taking delta-8, Boyet says she finally fell asleep and stayed asleep. She describes the gummies’ effects as “not unlike a massage,” and adds that an hour after it takes effect, “there’s no way I can remain awake, which is ideal because this woman needs good sleep.”
This is emerging as a common theme among delta-8 consumers: They’ve tried everything, and nothing worked until they found delta-8.
“The Pineapple Express gummies have been helping me and my wife sleep,” writes Richard Christensen. “No more sleeping pills.”
“I tried melatonin and prescriptions, and they didn’t work,” says Telesforo Galvan. “I took one gummy maybe 30 or 45 minutes before bed and BOOM, I was out like a light!”

For some delta-8 devotees, it even worked better than other cannabis products.
“I took one gummy maybe 30 or 45 minutes before bed and BOOM, I was out like a light!”
“I’m a medical patient but I just haven’t found what I need to help me sleep,” writes Jamie Viars, who recommends starting with small doses to see how you feel. “I tried these on a desperate whim and have now brought five family members and friends to the MOONWLKR side.”
“I’ve had bad anxiety and sleep problems for as long as I can remember,” writes Sumayo Hussein. “I started taking CBD products last summer which sorta helped… and then I tried delta-8 and I know this would be [a] game changer.”
The intersection of sleeplessness and discomfort
We know as much about delta-8 for sleep as we know about delta-8 for anything, with only anecdotal evidence for its effects on chronic pain. But many in the MOONWLKR community with chronic pain also have trouble sleeping—and have noticed that delta-8 is a uniquely good fit.
“I suffer from a spine disease and have difficulty getting comfortable, falling asleep, and having a restful night,” explains Joseph Vernice. “One half to a whole MOONWLKR Pineapple Express D8 gummy an hour or so before I’m ready to turn in for the night is a lifesaver.”
“I ate one gummy an hour before bedtime and subsequently had one of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in 20 years.”
Kenneth Burritt says he has debilitating spine arthritis, along with other conditions that make sleep difficult. He says when his sample pack arrived, “I ate one gummy an hour before bedtime and subsequently had one of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in 20 years.”
Some delta-8 enthusiasts come back with deeply emotional stories about a life-changing experience.
“My mom suffered from two aneurysms and a [stroke] in the span of two years,” writes Skyler Byrd. Her mother also has abdominal migraines, which make it difficult for her to eat. “I gave her a [MOONWLKR] sample pack and not only did she feel like she was on cloud 9 [that] she was able to eat, but [she said] she got the best sleep of her life.”

How to integrate MOONWLKR delta-8 gummies into your bedtime routine
To get started, hit up MOONWLKR for a free sample pack. Then it’s time to get cozy.
Delta-8 will affect different bodies in different ways, so start slow and leave a lot of buffer timing-wise, since like other cannabis edibles, they could take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in.
When you’re ready to settle in for the night, take a quarter or half of a 25mg gummy in your desired strain. Wait a couple of hours before increasing your dose that night—although it’s possible you’ll be asleep by then!
Right now, MOONWLKR is giving sample packs away for free with no commitment to buy. Snag your free gummies today.

Stirling CBD Is Helping Put America’s Sleeping Woes to Bed, Launching Pectin-Based Delta 8 and Delta 9 Sleep Gummies

CARY, N.C., May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stirling CBD announces the release of its new pectin-based Delta 8 Sleep Gummies and Delta 9 Sleep Gummies, formulated to help people fall asleep and stay asleep. Since 2014, Stirling has been the leader in CBD and alternative cannabinoids to the market.
Today, Stirling launched two unique formulations:
- A Delta 8 sleep gummy with 12.5mg of D8, 12.5mg of CBN, and 25mg of CBD.
- A Delta 9 sleep gummy with 10mg of D9, 12.5mg of CBN, and 25mg of CBD. This formula contains the maximum amount of Delta 9 allowed by law (0.3%).
Both formulas help the body and mind relax and prepare itself for a good night’s sleep. By using a pectin base (made from apple fiber), Stirling’s Delta 8 and Delta 9 sleep gummies provide numerous advantages over the competition’s gelatin-based (animal cartilage) CBD gummies.
With the addition of CBN, Stirling CBD further separates itself from the competition. CBN is a minor cannabinoid that research has shown to calm the mind.
Stirling’s President Joe Kryszak explains more differences, “With 40% of our sales going to chiropractor offices, we must ensure we use only the best ingredients. Stirling’s proprietary formula is made with beet sugar and tapioca syrup, while the competition uses cane sugar and corn syrup. Both beet sugar and tapioca syrup have major advantages, including easier digestion, improved absorption, and a lower caloric content.”
A 2019 study from NIH, entitled Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series, suggests “cannabidiol may hold benefit for stress-related issues.” The study concluded that CBD combined with low THC levels helps the mind relax, allowing people to get a better night’s sleep. Taking a combination of CBD and low doses of THC showed promising results: “Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in 57 patients (79.2%) and remained decreased during the study duration. Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 patients (66.7%) but fluctuated over time,” the study reports.
The most common solution to America’s sleep problem is prescription sleep medication. However, many prescription medications treat the symptoms but not the root cause. The Mayo Clinic reported that sleep medications have serious side effects, including dizziness, gastrointestinal problems, severe allergic reactions, and memory and performance problems.
Few countries ranked lower than the United States in total sleep per night. A 2020 poll by the National Sleep Foundation revealed startling levels of sleepiness among Americans. Almost half of Americans say they “feel sleepy during the day between three and seven days per week.”
Thirty-five percent of all adults in the United States report sleeping less than seven hours per night on average. It is estimated that over 1.2 million workdays and $14.3 billion in economic losses are lost annually due to lack of sleep.
Notably, THC that comes from the hemp plant is known as Delta 8. According to the 2018 Farm Bill hemp is defined as a cannabis plant containing under 0.3% THC. These legally grown hemp plants have traditionally been bred for industrial uses such as rope, textiles, and oils, but new research shows that the cannabinoids found in these plants have some amazing health benefits. Stirling CBD buys only the best, organically grown hemp plants for their CBD gummies, Delta 8 and Delta 9 Sleep gummies, and lotions.
Stirling CBD provides a suite of products, featuring natural ingredients aimed to alleviate pain, recovery, and sleep issues. For more information on Stirling CBD, visit https://www.stirlingcbdoil.com.
