You haven't had to increase the dose to get the same effect? That was my experience, and why I discontinued it.

Smile Quick update....

It took a while but I've lost 5 pounds since July 3rd. Only 40 to go LOL.

I'm one of those people who does not look heavy but it's on there. My goal is another 25 by October 15th.

Anyway, sleeping is better. I'm eating earlier and that's it. Sometimes, I'll have popcorn that you make in the microwave but that's it.

I seem to sleep through the night. I mean, last night, I went to sleep at 2:20 AM and slept until 9 AM.
I never woke up once.

We'll see how I do over the weekend which are my worst times. I think I get more bored on the weekends.

But this weekend (Sunday), I get to go to a concert so very excited to do something fun!!

Update on my experience with hemp gummies.

First I had to switch brands because I couldn't find the original one (sold out).

Second I tried a different brand but they arrived melted in the jar. (Got a refund from Amazon.)

Third, I received a different brand a few days ago. Not sour, not sugar coated (oh well!)

Have to say they are really working. I'm sleeping better, and longer. Almost getting through the night without having to get up to go to the bathroom. This morning I slept until 5am before needing to go. This is progress.

I get really sleepy right away after taking these. No hangover in the morning. They are by Vitamax, Hemp Gummies, High Potency 2,500,000. No THC. Label says: Fresh Colorado Hemp. I found that humorous.

Label says do not operate heavy machinery after use. Duh! No kidding.

One thing I'm watching: I think they might be slightly constipating. Nothing else has changed so these might be the reason.

Just received an email from Amazon. Insufficient inventory to fulfill subscxription delivery of next shipment.

That's the second gummy product I've purchased that has insufficient inventory or is out of stock in the past 30 days.

These gummies are getting very popular. I will be ordering more than one jar at a time from now on.

No snark please about "hoarding."

I never could sleep like a creep after i stopped smoking. Everything got worse after i stopped. Only xanx works for me to take naps on the weekends for 3 hours or so. Without i would never go to sleep.

Tylenol helps me sleep. I monkeyed with doses and have now settled on 500 just before bed. I will sometimes take 325 if I awaken, it depends on what time I'm awake.

When my dad was in his early 90s he said he would go to sleep with no problem when he went to bed, but would wake up around 2 AM and not be able to get back to sleep. Said when you don't do anything all day (stayed in his recliner and watched TV), you "run out of sleep" in a few hours. He would take Midnight PM at bedtime and slept great he said, all night.
If I can't sleep, as a last resort, I'll take a melatonin which works for me, but I feel sleepy for several hours the next day.

I didn't read all those replies, but did you try a weighted blanket, OP??
Many people swear to it, and I love it too.

There are a number of factors that can cause sleep disorders. Weighted blankets can help in some simple ways. The added pressure may help to calm your heart rate and breathing. This may make it easier to relax before you settle in for a good night’s rest.
They can help calm a restless body, reduce feelings of anxiety, and improve sleep troubles.

OK, days later, they're not constipating. Still working well. Lots of very vivid dreams, more than usual. Good sleep, still have to get up in the night once to use the bathroom. Somewhat of a hangover, depending upon the dosage I use: either 15,000,000 or 2,500,000. The stronger dosage, obviously, creates more of a hangover but it isn't intense.
