Medical marijuana has countless health benefits and is widely used to treat various medical disorders. One of those medical disorders is the treatment of insomnia. Insomnia is defined as the inability to fall asleep or to stay asleep throughout the night. Insomnia is a sleep disorder. It involves sleepless nights and can be very frustrating to cope with. Insomnia can be diagnosed as either short-term or chronic insomnia. Short-term insomnia occurs when someone cannot sleep for three weeks or less or cannot stay asleep (constantly waking up at night) for less than three weeks. This can be stemmed from stressful situations or having a lot on the mind.
Chronic insomnia occurs whens someone cannot sleep or experiences difficulties staying asleep for longer than three weeks. Chronic insomnia can be treated with pharmaceutical drugs such as Ambien or over the counter medications such as Tylenol PM. It can also be treated with medical marijuana strains that are designed to help you sleep.
Medical marijuana strains can work as a sleep aid because there are certain cannabis strains that promote relaxation and anti-anxiety effects. These strains can range from being very potent to not as potent. They can produce very strong effects and cause you to fall asleep right away or they can produce lesser effects that will just put you in a stage of relaxation.
Medical marijuana strains that are designed to treat insomnia can be taken in many different forms. You can smoke the medical marijuana. Smoking it can be done through a bong, a pipe, or a joint. Smoking mechanisms can be made out of ceramic, glass and many other creative ideas such as apples, tubes, pvc pipe, etc. You can also take the medical marijuana through a vaporizer which is a less invasive form of smoking on the lungs and respiratory system. Another way to use medical marijuana to treat insomnia is through edibles. Edibles are a form of marijuana where the marijuana is made into an oil or a butter and cooked into food. This creates a body buzz, which is a different type of buzz then one would get from smoking marijuana.
The marijuana strains that are made to treat insomnia are typically from the cannabis indica plant or a variation of the cannabis indica plant combined with the cannabis sativa plant. These strains are designed to promote a very strong state of relaxation that will cause someone to fall asleep and to stay asleep. Some of these strains that are made for insomnia include White Russian, which is a hybrid of cannabis sativa and cannabis indica. Another strain used for insomnia is OG kush, which is also a hybrid of cannabis sativa and cannabis indica. Jack Herer is a cannabis sativa strain that is used to treat insomnia. Blue Dream is another popular strain that is used to treat insomnia and is also a hybrid.
