Cannabis and sleep?


So my main trigger seems to be exhaustion. And nearly my entire family, including me have trouble sleeping. THC puts me right to sleep. There are few studies done with cannabis, I'm aware. But edibles put me to sleep, but I wake up exhausted. Anyone else? Also anyone aware if cannabis affects any meds?

Can you try a smaller dose -- "half-an-edible" -- to see if you get the sleep w/o the exhaustion?

Same thing my Dad recommend. I will over the next few days.

The edibles are chocolate so yes.

Hi finalpoet,

About 5 min. after I used cannabis I feel tired but my body has gotten used to it. I use 1.25 mg. twice a day you can start it out in small doses and the THC level is only 1-2%.I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Sue
