Cannabis has been shown to be effective in treating insomnia. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that cannabis was effective in reducing the time it took for patients to fall asleep and increasing the duration of sleep. The study also found that cannabis was effective in reducing morning grogginess and improving quality of sleep.
Cannabis is thought to be effective in treating insomnia due to its ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating sleep, mood, and appetite. Cannabis has been shown to increase levels of the endocannabinoid 2-AG, which is thought to be responsible for its effects on sleep.
If you are considering using cannabis to treat your insomnia, it is important to speak to your doctor first. Cannabis can interact with other medications and may not be suitable for everyone.
