I have had trouble sleeping for much of my adult life. I exercise every day, I eat clean, and avoid caffeinated beverages, however, I still find myself fully awake at night when it’s time for me to go to bed. I have tried many solutions to my sleeping problems, from meditation and stretches, essential oils, and other holistic approaches like melatonin, but I haven’t found a solution that works for me. I talked to my doctor, and while I am otherwise healthy, he noted that my sleep schedule isn’t optimal, and he recommended that I try prescription sleep aids, but the side effects for some of those medications are worse than the sleep loss that I was experiencing. Last weekend I had dinner with my sister, and she told me that she has been smoking cannabis to help her sleep at night. There are hundreds of different strains of cannabis, and many of them have been shown to help patients get sleep. I went to the dispensary near me, and spoke with the budtender about my needs, and he showed me a few different cannabis products that he thought I should try. Indica strains are the best when choosing a marijuana strain for sleep, some of the strains that the budtender recommended to me are Hindu Kush, Grandaddy Purple, Grape Ape, and Girl Scout Cookies. I decided to buy some Hindu Kush, which came as dried flowers of the cannabis plant. That night, I took just one hit from a glass pipe, and laid down for bed. The next thing I knew, it was morning, and I slept through the night. If you suffer from insomnia, head to your local dispensary to see if cannabis is right for you!
