How Medical Marijuana Can Help You Sleep Better

Cannabis has been around for thousands of years and has been used for many medical conditions and symptoms. One of the things cannabis is known for is its ability to help with a number of sleep problems.

Marijuana can help people who have bad sleeping habits and conditions, such as insomnia and narcolepsy. People who have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep can benefit from cannabis use, as well as people who get poor quality sleep.

Whether cannabis helps you with sleeping issues depends on you as a person among other things including delivery method, dosage, strain, etc. Many people find that indica-dominant strains help them sleep better, whereas sativa strains help with energy levels.

Cannabis and the Brain

When marijuana cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors in the brain, they bind to receptors and send messages which increase levels of adenosine levels. They also suppress the brain’s arousal system, leading to tiredness.

CBD tends to promote sleep in higher doses but promotes alertness at lower doses. THC and CBD may also help with many chronic conditions that would interfere with sleep.

Cannabis and Sleep Quality

Lots of people have sleep problems that aren’t associated with an actual medical condition, as many people have trouble with the quality of sleep they are getting without even realizing it.

Cannabis and THC in particular can help you enter deep sleep phases and stay in those phases for longer. You can be asleep for 8 hours, but if your sleep quality is not good, you may still be tired.

Which Types of Cannabis Are Best for Sleep?

Sativa strains are believed to be more energizing, and indica strains are more relaxing. If you think cannabis may help you sleep, you should try an indica strain.
