Once of the most common reasons why cannabis is used globally is to aid sleep. Whilst the best thing for sleep is no medication at all, if you’re not sleeping well then that affects the rest of your life. Many people turn to sleeping tablets which are addictive and don’t work very well. The THC in marijuana helps to increase your delta slow wave sleep which is the part of sleep where you regain a lot of your energy. It also reduces your REM sleep so you don’t dream as much which is why a lot of sufferers with PTSD use it.
