From The Budtender: Managing Sleep with Doug Ewer from our Colorado Blvd. location

by | Feb 22, 2019 | Budtender Feature

You can find Doug Ewer leading the team over at our Colorado Blvd location. Ewer has been with The Clinic since January 2018 but has already won the hearts of fellow staff and patients alike. The industry has been lucky to have him for the last six years. Before he was a certified athletic trainer. “I enjoy the opportunity to help people in various situations with an unconventional/alternative option to make their situation better,” said Ewer.

A flower smoker himself, Doug uses cannabis for his anxiety and to help wind down after a long day. “I try to educate everybody with the proven facts about cannabis and relate it to some of the things they’re currently using for their ailments,” said Ewer.

When it comes to helping patients and customers struggling with their relationship with sleep Doug asks them two questions what is keeping them awake (anxiety, pain, etc.) and are they having problems falling asleep or staying asleep. He adds, “I typically recommend some sort of edible due to its long-lasting effects- ideally with indica terpenes or something with CBN in it.” In our previous From The Budtender, we talked about the benefits of CBN.

If insomnia is keeping you up at night, check out these three products that Doug recommends.

Products for Sleep


CBX Sciences - Meditate Gems

These gems are designed for sublingual administration that allows the cannabinoids to bypass the first pass metabolism, so they take effect quickly but also last longer. With a 1:1:1 ratio of CBN/CBD/THC, this low dose edible is excellent for slowly consuming a few gems before bed.




1906 - Midnight Chocolates

Midnight is a highly-targeted blend of plant medicine and relaxing cannabis indica to induce sleep and alleviate body tension. This fact acting edible takes 20 minutes to kick in so this would be a perfect addition to your before bed routine. Eat a 5mg CBD, 5mg THC chocolate, brush your teeth, wash your face and get some of the best sleep of your life. To learn more about 1906’s other products, check out our blog.





Wana - Assorted Sour Indica Gummies

This is a typical crowd pleaser for the customer new to cannabis as it’s great to aid in relaxation and sleep. Wana’s Assorted Sour Gummies are made with all natural flavors and colors. They are handcrafted and infused with premium extract during the cooking process. These 10mg gummies are also gluten free and vegan for those with dietary restrictions.




Pro Tips for Edibles: They work best with food in the stomach, helping the cannabinoids bind with fat for maximum absorption. Edibles take a little longer to have an effect on the body, but they last much longer.

New To Cannabis?

Doug recommends keeping an open mind. Ask questions, and look into all the different avenues that the ever-changing cannabis industry has to offer. Cannabis isn’t the magic pill but an alternative with minimal side effects to what they may have used.

Hopefully, you have a better understanding of ways to handle your different issues with sleep using cannabis. If you have any additional questions or seek other recommendations, visit any of our four locations today!

“Listening to the customer, showing empathy and working to understand their needs and the best ways to build customer loyalty. I like to learn what they have tried and the pros and cons associated with it, then I enjoy working with them to get the product that works the best for them, “ added Ewer.
