Medical Marijuana and Insomnia

Insomnia is most often thought of as a sign and a symptom that can accompany several sleep, medical and psychiatric disorders. These are best characterized by a persistent difficulty in falling asleep, staying asleep or achieving a slumber that is of a very poor quality. Insomnia is typically follow by functional impairment while awake and can occur at any age. However, this condition is particularly found to be common in the elderly. This condition can lead to memory problems, depression, irritability or an increased risk of heart disease.

Medical cannabis can be a very beneficial and efficient alternative treatment option for patients who suffer greatly from insomnia. Cannabis at night time is a very beneficial treatment that can directly alleviate symptoms of insomnia. Many patients report that when compared to conventional sleep medications, cannabis works far better, is not habit-forming and leaves them feeling extremely well the next day. It is important to keep in mind what strain to use as most Indica-based strains are more relaxing and meant for sleep.
