“Studies show that marijuana can help with insomnia, sleep apnea, and sleep issues related to PTSD and chronic pain.”
The benefits depend on following the right protocols however.
This article takes a wide ranging look at the science behind cannabis and various aspects of sleep.
The summary includes these impressions:
“Marijuana has the potential to address insomnia and sleep problems caused by conditions like sleep apnea, PTSD, and chronic pain.
Smoking the odd joint at night to help you fall asleep can be an effective strategy to combat insomnia. But using marijuana multiple times a day is linked to greater sleep difficulties.
If you use marijuana at night to help you sleep, don’t expect to have many dreams. Marijuana has been found to impair REM sleep, the sleep stage where you are most likely to dream.
Finally, expect a few ‘hangover’ symptoms from smoking late at night, like persistent sleepiness and changes in how you feel.
The moral of the story seems to be that less is more when it comes to using marijuana for sleep.”
