Although medical cannabis research is in its infancy, the applications of cannabis for sleep disorders is promising. There have been numerous subjective reports on how cannabis is beneficial to improving sleep quality and duration and many individuals are turning to cannabis to achieve better sleep.
Product selection is extremely important when using medical cannabis for sleep. There are two main varieties of cannabis, indica and sativa, and they have very different effects. Cannabis sativa is well known for its energizing and uplifting effects and is great for daytime use. Sativa strains would be an excellent choice for individuals who suffer from daytime fatigue due to lack of sleep. Cannabis indica is known for its sleep-inducing qualities and relaxation effects. Indica strains are more appropriate for night-time use and help to relax the muscles and mind, producing a deeper sleep.
