How Delta 8 Can Help With Sleep, Stress, And More



Last Updated on February 21, 2024 by Joshua Isibor

Insomnia and sleep disturbances are a modern day epidemic for most working people even if they work from home. While a range of natural supplements such as melatonin or herbal extracts exists to help with sleep, Delta 8 is a new contender in the market for any sleep troubles. 

Delta 8 is psychoactive and a new synthetic derivative of cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants. Delta 9 boasts a lot more THC (the psychoactive compound for which many people use cannabinoid products), but Delta 8 is a happier medium and better for beginners who want to ease into using it. 

An Excellent Relaxant 

Delta 8 relaxes the muscles and the nervous system and lowers the body’s natural cortisol and alarm systems. Due to its mental and physically relaxing effect, it can absolutely induce better and deeper sleep and enable an individual to awaken refreshed. Cannabis itself has been used for thousands of years to reduce stress and cause a calmer state of mind to take place. 

Seasoned cannabinoid product users (people who use CBD oil or similar products) in many cases do prefer to take Delta 8 towards the evening after a meal for best effects. Taking it in the morning may cause drowsiness or difficulty driving or staying focused on work tasks. Taking Delta 8 in moderation such as through a tincture or even an edible can work wonders for improving the quality of sleep after a long and busy day. 


Many people suffer from illnesses caused and propagated by chronic low or high level inflammation. Delta 8 has a natural anti-inflammatory effect at the source so can reduce pain associated with these conditions which can also lead to fewer sleepless nights and tossing and turning. Extreme pain can of course cause insomnia and restless sleep so Delta 8 acting as a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory agent can reduce this occurrence resulting in a better sleep experience. Apart from having reputed analgesic qualities, Delta 8 does act as a slight sedative which is more an extension of its relaxant capabilities. 

Works Well With Other Natural Extracts

Delta 8 can be combined with other ingredients to enhance its relaxing and anti-stress effects even with commoner ingredients like chocolate. Chocolate already has phytochemicals that increase the production of serotonin and other happy hormones, and when combined with Delta 8, it can have a very relaxing and rejuvenating effect. Melatonin and lavender are also favorites to pair with Delta 8 as they increase the effect the compound can have. 

The dose is very important with Delta 8 especially if you are considering a range of products from a delta 8 shop as it does have a fair amount of THC which can have a strong intoxicating effect. While this intoxicating effect in itself is helpful for both stress and pain and subsequently for sleeping well, it is best not to overdose on it especially if you are looking into using it over the long term for relief from chronic pain or stress.
