    Revolver - by Crop King Seeds - has about 14%% THC some CBD qualities but also has more CBN than cbd which is why I'm growing it. CBN helps insomnia.

      My experience is that it almost doesn't matter what strain I choose, it aids in falling asleep or getting back to sleep. It happened to me last night. I'm still relatively new, finding what works for me and what doesn't.

      My truth is that I need to employ other means as well, for successful slumber. Moderate exercise, at least three times a week, is fantastic. I also practice deep breathing and meditation.

      I know the effects of what I have and still chose a straight Sativa last night (Golden Tiger X Panama). The effects are what you'd expect, as compared to an Indica. It didin't matter. I enjoyed my complex, thought provoking, slightly invigorating high and gradually drifted off...

      I guess my point is, don't get too wrapped around the axle about the strain. If you do the other things (meditation, etc.), you'll get to sleep regardless of strain.

        So how was your Golden Tiger X Panama BR2K since I'm an Ace grower myself.

      I’ve heard “Cement shoes” seems like a killer sleeper strain. The name alone sounds like a serious couch lock, it’s one I’ve been keeping my eye out for to aid my sleep.

        There were two things that would keep me awake at night. The first was joint pain, this was sporadic from 76 till the early in 2009 and used opioids to treat only when pain kept me awake. In 2013 I was diagnosed with COPD which made me realize my productive days were limited. This started my mind keeping me awake if I wasted a day. I found best thing for this was just to do something productive every day. For example I hate doing the dishes and if I blow them off to work some project in the house, yard or for improving my grow I was productive and blowing off the dishes doesn't dwell on my mind. In 2016 my primary physician semi-retired and started working out of a office that did not prescribe opioids and suggested I may want to check into cannabis since I only ever needed occasional meds to mask pain for me to sleep. Beginning 2-14-17 I switched to cannabis using Weedmaps for what was available at dispensaries within a 50 mile radius and Leafly to confirm affects I would purchase. Over the next 18 months I bought more than 30 ounces many of which did not have the taste or affect listed on Leafly which turned me of on dispensaries. Oh hell I'm high watching football and rambling all you wanted to know is what we use for sleeping. I found if I normally take 3 or 4 puffs off my pipe filled with the White Widow Hash I make to get a buzz or ease my knees that taking 5 or 6 puffs about an hour before bed and I sleep soundly. Last night no idea of drift off time but was dam near as soon as my head hit the pillow, I woke at 1:43 to piss and right back to sleep till 7:45

          Gorilla Glue is a great relaxing and sleep aid - it is also good for mixing with some of the "active" strains which may be great for psychedelic's etc. but make it hard to sleep. We find that adding Gorilla Glue to you smoke (about 1/3 of your mixing should be Gorilla Glue).
          Also Gelato.OG is a great relaxer, the waves of relaxation that sweep over you are like being rocked to sleep, but this cannot be mixed - its not robust enough when blended to counter those strains that keep you alert...

          So:
          • Gelato.OG - just by itself
          • Gorilla Glue, either by itself, or can be mixed in with other "non-sleepy" strains.

            Sis in Law has some menopause related sleeping issues.

            She says the jar of Bubba Kush I gave her puts her right out, sleeps like a baby.

              My go to is tincture of Indica and .5 gram decarbed bud in a cup of yogurt, 2 hr. before lights out. And I do mean out.
              For me there is a slight hallucinogenic, paralytic effect before loss of consciousness and deep slumber. It's not bad.

                I choose a high indica strain. I do some edibles made with it about 2 hours before bed then I smoke me a bowl to go to sleep on and it helps me stay asleep during the night when what I smoked wears off, then the edibles are still working.

                  Thanks to the Christmas gift of a Magical Butter Machine from a dear friend I now have a good supply of White Widow tincture.

                  Two droppers of that elixir just before bed and I'm done for the day!

                    Dieselgrower, The minimum liquid volume is two cups and the max herb they recommend is one oz per cup. So my first attempt was about half the max weed amount and it was a little weak. Good potency after I boiled off half the alcohol. First try so I didn't use my best buds either.

                    I decarbed in a sealed mason jar, 250 for 40 minutes. Almost no smell to my surprise!!!

                    I learned some Tincture lore yesterday that seems relevant for this discussion.

                    The strength of a cannabis tincture is often measured on the "Whole Plant Scale," which is a ratio of the amount of herb in grams divided by the volume of alcohol in ounces. Tincture recipes commonly shoot for a potency of around 3.5gr / ounce and assume a normal dose will be between one half to one ml.

                    So, in my recent batch I used one oz of bud in two cups of Everclear producing a "Whole Plant" potency of 1.86 (29.7g / 16oz). I found that rather weak and reduced the tincture liquid volume by half. That doubled the potency to around 3.7 (1.86 x 2). My bedtime does of 1 - 2 ml seems perfect for a great night's sleep.

                    Also, the Magic Butter recipe calls for 54gr (2oz) of weed and 16 oz of Everclear, producing a potency of 54 / 16 = 3.7! Voila!

                    To round this out, another method used to estimate tincture potency uses the following formula:
                    (THC content in % x Amount of Herb in mg x Extraction efficiency in % ) / Alcohol in ml = the mg/ml of THC in your tincture.

                    So, let’s assume that the THC content of our herb is 20%. The Magic Butter recipe max dose calls for 2oz (59 grams or 59000 mg) of herb in 16oz (454ml) of alcohol. A tincture extracts about 75% of the available THC. So, the math looks like this:

                    (0.2 x 59,000 mg x 0.75) / 454 ml = 19.5 mg/ml. --A quite potent concoction.

                    (Hat tip to @ReikoX for the formulas!)

                    awesome, thanks grouchyoldman for that info. local smoke shop has em I may actually grab 1 tonight or order it when I get some bottles. You could probably do a small run with 1 cup and 1 oz? also question Im guessing 1-2 oz bottles are common to carry but what size bottle to store it all in with that recipe?
