Side Effects of Marijuana: Insomnia

Medical Marijuana Side Effect: Insomnia

Some patients who medicate with cannabis will experience insomnia. Insomnia is the inability to sleep, or chronic sleeplessness.

How do I alleviate this side effect?

If this you experience insomnia while medicating with cannabis, try reducing your dosage and avoid medicating before bedtime. You may also want to try medicating with an indica  strain, which has more of a sedative effect than sativa strains  (which generally cause alertness).
