If you’re having difficulty sleeping due to stress, you may notice immediate benefits.

Cannabis is even capable of improving respiratory function in individuals affected by sleep apnea.

The use of marijuana for sleep apnea improves the quality of life for more than 55% of patients with the condition. This was demonstrated in a study on THC’s ability to increase muscle tone in the upper respiratory tract.

Marijuana is commonly used to induce sleep.[247] However, a review of studies[248] suggests that chronic use of marijuana can result in increased tolerance to its sleep-inducing effects and subsequently more of the drug is required to get the desired effect.

Both daytime sleepiness and insomnia symptoms can lead to self-medication with stimulants and to alcohol and marijuana use, which, given the negative effects these substances have on sleep, can lead to an escalating pattern of use and worsening sleep disturbance.

  • “People have been using cannabis as a sleep aid for decades.” Um. Try thousands of years man. People who seem to think weed was discovered in the 60’s both annoy and amuse me. lol

  • You know what is weird though… the main argument against medical marijuana is that it can make you addicted. After thinking for about two seconds you realise that drugs that contain opiates and other addictive chemicals are fully legal and even promoted. Where is the logic?

  • i have night terrors. reefer stops them. without reefer i would have killed myself years ago. i dont like smoking weed. but i dont want to kill myself either

  • I honestly think it depends on the person and their cannabinoids. Also depends on, are you a stoner, a smoker/patient, or are you a complete newbie. I’ve smoked weed since freshmen year of high school on and off, both heavily and sparingly, and throughout that time, weed became a complete stimulant to keep me awake, and also a sleep aid. It’s also both completely screwed my memory in some moments, and made me remember clearer during a test. Clearly there needs to be more research. Can we please have marijuana taken from the schedule 1 list? Along with Psilocybin.

  • I endured with sleeplessness for over 2 yrs and thought there seems to be no cure for my situation. Not until a psychological behavioral therapist recommended this particular treatment program. It assist me to know about science the way we sleep. And each night, I can right now sleep at night easily. Sleeping on the bed is a splendid experience overnight. Good luck, you will get the results, get it on Google. Name of the guidebook is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • one thing i found confusing as a grower/user is the fact that i like being sleep and couch locked or shlump on the couch and or falling asleep while gaming.

    my question is if im growing my kush plant for the heavy body high, should i let the trichomes turn more amber instead of just slightly amber for a more couch lock high?

  • I don’t like cannabis. Back when I used to smoke, I notice that: Yes, I’ll fall asleep, but I wake up messed up. I don’t feel like my body and mind has rested. It feels more like I have been sedated.

  • I was suffering from insomnia (still am) and the only thing that helped me was weed. Without it I am back to square one. I never use it every day, but whenever I need to sleep I will go out and smoke. My family doesn’t understand, and I suppose they never will.

  • I sleep really high every night and some nights, I have lucid dreams where Im placed in a certain place like a beach or at home, and I’m able to do whatever I want. In a lot of these dreams I am able to fly somewhat like a bird and get to places really quickly, while gazing into the surreal view expanding below me. When I have a lucid dream it feels like I have woken up in another realm.

  • I had terrible sleeping disorder for Nine months, the only method I could sleep was by taking prescription drugs. I obtained this sleeping program from a medical doctor. Just after Five weeks, I accomplished the ideal sleep of my life. Folks who have endured insomnia for quite a long time must also look at this. My sleeping habit each night has improved considerably. I researched Google and found this tip on a website.. Name of the guidebook is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • So many smug know it alls in the comments. Anything negative about cannabis must be propaganda? Or because an individual had only positive effects than they think everybody responds to cannabis the same way.
    Let me tell you, many everyday users will have messed up sleep patterns and won’t be able to sleep without it for at least a few days if they decide to quit. Marijuana helps people get to sleep but it disrupts REM sleep.

    Depending on how you use marijuana it isn’t a healthy thing to do daily. Most people smoke or vape and a good amount do edibles which is the healthiest. If you smoke everyday and think it’s healthy then your just ignorant. Your inhaling combusted plant matter which is full of toxic chemicals. Vaping reduces this but its still irritates your respiratory system. Edibles are quite expensive and for most people taking them everyday isn’t an affordable option especially since you will develop a tolerance very quickly and need higher amounts to get you to sleep. You might be fine taking just 10-20mg of edibles for a week or two but next thing you know your taking 100mg everyday and not feeling barely anything.

    I am not saying cannabis is bad or evil, It’s way better than most sleep aids out there but marijuana is best enjoyed occasionally not daily and the best way to consume it is through your digestive system not respiratory system.

    If you want to have healthy sleep patterns
    -Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday
    -Turn off your lights and put the screens away a hour before your bed time
    -Turn down the temperature a bit
    -Avoid stimulants especially caffeine.
    -Exercise daily
    -Avoid late naps

  • He said “drug” it’s legal in most states now and it isnt a drug. It doesnt cause a physical dependency and there is research to prove that. If you have an addictive personality then it can be mentally addictive but it isnt anywhere near as bad as drugs. And quitting only causes sleep problems when you smoke all day every day and every night and even then it will only effect it for a day or 2 and your fine

  • OMG, Canada will be The Walking Dead (high as a kite) Canuck edition. The laws are not even close to being written or adapt to the legalization. No proper breathalyzer, condo rules, vaping etc. It’s all for keeping the population slow, and high and dumb

  • So we are gonna skip the fact that an indica strain doesn’t exist to this guy, which is the strain known mostly for making you sleepy ��

  • The stuffs different for everyone… i can’t take my meds for my insomnie ofr depression cuz of my heart condition so I had no other choice but to try it… I’ve been smo,smoking, for 2 years now and I can say in at least my opinion it works like a charm

  • From personal experience i took a tolerance break for a month and my insomnia returned which i found using the substance made me sleepier at earlier times causing me to not miss work so this is another propaganda technique to wage even more on a failing war

  • Ummm. I don’t think so. I have had insomnia for probably 7ish years now. I had tried Benadryl, Ambien (terrible and dangerous side effects), having a night cap, dozens of natural supplements, etc…went to the Dr, tried yoga,…I finally gave up and tried medical cannabis edibles when I was going 23 hours without sleep…I fell asleep so peacefully and woke up feeling so refreshed after first trying an edible. I don’t get nightmares, feel more rested the next day and it always helps me sleep. I use my fitbit to monitor my sleep. Most of the time I sleep better and longer when taking edibles. My sleep score is higher on my fitbit and also I sleep closer to 9 hours instead of only 6 without it. I sometimes can fall asleep without it, and the cannabis is not why I had insomnia in the first place. This is BS

  • I try not to sleep at peak high but sometimes it kinda intense and I command myself to the bed then close my eyes until asleep lol…its a trip.

  • Cpap sucks it doesnt help at all. I think the only way to fix sleep apnea is to create breathing machine like ventilators that break for you they push air in and push air out

  • I had severe sleep problems for two years and thought I was hopeless, nevertheless employing this sleep cure, I`m slumbering normally all over again and also REALLY ENJOY sleeping. You must not pass up making use of this sleep approach or treatment program. In the beginning, I found this system to be unrealistic nevertheless I used it anyhow. There is no harm using it anyway. I discovered Google and found this guidebook on a website.. Name is Zoey Sυnodoz

  • Skepticism is good when it comes to the well being of people. I believe that the research has been done by a vast number of people from the time people have had a relationship with the worlds botanicals. Cannabis is a plant that a lot has been learned about by many societies of the world. If this plant was in any way harmful to humans, we would already know about it. Our government still stands in the way! Can anyone give me a valid reason why?
