Insomnia can be defined as a difficulty in getting to sleep or staying asleep for long enough to feel ‘awake’ the following day. Insomnia can be a standalone illness or a symptom of more serious mental and physical condition.
There have been various studies on the effect of cannabis on Insomnia and its related symptoms.
In a small study published in 1973, THC reduced the time it took for 9 subjects with insomnia to fall asleep by over an hour on average. However, the researchers noted that too high of a dose could counteract the effect.
While a 2008 study published by the Sleep Medicine Reviews discovered that THC can increase the amount of slow-wave sleep, also known as deep sleep, that a user experiences during their rest.
