Tried this as alternative to tinctures of isolate in oil, to get faster onset and shorter activity. CBD can be kryptonite for high energy creative workaholics like me so it’s hard to use it for a sound sleep without messing up your day. With tincture I would have to take it at 7pm so the release 12 hours later would let me bounce up in the morning after a sound sleep, but the gradual onset meant sleep kept getting postponed. Indicas simply leave me groggy and sleepless for 12 hours (and suppress REM sleep for 36 hours which really messes me up) so they are not a sleep aid for me. Something that kicked in fast and ended at 6 or 7 hours seemed ideal like vaped flower.
Tried this and Temple through OCS, both came in sealed jars (seeing a tax seal was a new experience too). Had my doubts about the pancake and supplier as you can see before buying, but this strain was in good shape, fresh and floral scent with big buds. Temple was tiny stale smelling shwag which had been a complaint early in legal weed, maybe it was old stock. But this was good, filled my vape with 0.15 gram which should last several days, and tried 10 inhales at 164C. Some roughness in throat but just enough to know I was actually getting active material.
Pretty pure CBD, tested at 14% CBD and 0.5% THC, But did feel a clear transition—not a high (though it could be mistaken for one). It was like living a mile from an industrial plant that shuts down suddenlly in the evening, a whirring in the brain suddenly quieter and relaxed, if it had been bedtime my suddenly heavy eyelids would have let me nap immediately. Took about 90 minutes to adapt, then wide awake but the obsessive drives gone. Definitely primed for good sleep.
Later felt warmth that released suddenly which is my morning signal that the CBD is letting my body temperature return to daytime levels, and when that passed brain was right back in overdrive. So it looks good so far. Still need to judge timing and whether small aloof THC will impact REM sleep.
