Study: Marijuana Found to Help Overcome Sleeping Problems

Marijuana Sleep

According to a study published in the journal, Addictive Behaviors, sufferers of sleep disorders can find relief with marijuana.

Investigators from John Hopkins University in Baltimore, the University of California at Berkeley, and the National Center for PTSD studied marijuana strains and cannabinoid concentrations among medical marijuana users who reported using marijuana to overcome their sleep problems.

Researchers found that marijuana may help with sleep disorders, that participants who consumed marijuana for nightmares preferred sativa marijuana strains to indicas, and those who consumed marijuana for insomnia were more likely to consume marijuana strains with higher levels of cannabidiol (CBD) compared to those who did not.

It was found that people who were less likely to use sleep medications were more likely to use marijuana with higher THC concentrations versus those who used sleep medications more frequently.
