Stress. Anxiety. Pain. Too many cups of coffee. The reasons vary, but sometimes there is no obvious reason, but my brain just won’t turn off. I know you’ve been there too.

I’ve tried melatonin, Nyquil, its sister product ZzzQuil, Ambien, Advil PM, Neurosleep, Benadryl, the list goes on and on. Have those products put me to sleep? Usually. Have those “sleep-aids” kept me asleep? Sometimes. When I wake up after using one of those products, how do I feel? Drowsy as hell.

This drowsiness typically leads to more caffeine to wake me up and eventually another sleep aid to help me sleep when the day is done. It’s a vicious cycle. Before you ask, yes I keep my bedroom cool and dark and quiet. I take the appropriate measures, but life gets in the way sometimes and you need that extra something to help.

Finding something consistent and reliable is difficult and each individual person is going to have different results to each product they try. For example, I’ve tried CBD and found it to have the opposite effect where I feel energized and focused. With THC, specifically Indica, it has helped me sleep, but I still have issues with grogginess and I’d like to go to sleep without getting high.

When CBN was brought to my attention, I didn’t know how little research had been done into this exotic cannabinoid. I just figured I’ll try it out and see if it works.

Now you might be thinking, “here comes the self-serving, salesman, testimonial bullshit”, so before telling you how my experience with CBN was, I’m going down a tangent.

Yes, my name is Jack Vlasic. Yes, I work at Vlasic Labs. But, I am not a founder. In fact, as of writing this, I have worked for Vlasic Labs for one month. What did I do before that?

Sports Sponsorships and Ticket Sales. And I loved every minute of it. I knew I would work in sports the moment I figured out I wasn’t going to the NBA (age 12).

I spent a decade building and growing that career and even went back to school for a Masters degree, so why the hell did I leave?

Because this stuff works. For me. Will it work for you? I hope so, try yourself and see. But my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. I fall asleep faster. I stay asleep longer. And I don’t wake up groggy, which allows me to take on the next day that much better. I’ve tried CBN alone and CBN/CBD combos. I’ve tried them in sprays, tinctures, gummies, and capsules at varying doses. CBN has been the common denominator for me and a good night sleep.

I’m very much a see it to believe it kind of person. I didn’t use CBD until I saw how it help my mom sleep after double knee replacement surgery without opioids. And while CBN may not work for everyone, it’s worth a try considering the negative effects of other sleep aids.

One person’s experience doesn’t mean everything and I know that, which is why Vlasic Labs is donating CBN to Universities that are willing to study its efficacy further. If CBN helps you, then we’re here to provide consistent and quality products you can trust. If CBN doesn’t help you, we want to know, so we can keep improving our formulations and testing new cannabinoids that might work better for you.
