Does THC have therapeutic benefits for sleep disorders?
The National Academy of Sciences have been running studies on cannabis over the past year to determine if THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol (one of the most active chemicals in the cannabis plant) can help with people who have moderate sleeping problems. 10,000 people were studied on cannabis, the test confirmed that there is “moderate evidence” that marijuana is effective for short-term treatment of sleep disturbances such as sleep apnea and multiple sclerosis.
However, limitations on marijuana research (classification as a Schedule 1 drug by the DEA) has limited the studies being done. This implies there are many more possible “active ingredients” in the cannabis plant that have not been examined as thoroughly by the scientific community.
While other researchers are looking into the use of CBD oil as a treatment for insomnia and other sleep disorders, other potential active ingredients within the cannabis plant are endless.
If you do have problems with sleeping I suggest that you find yourself a nice indica dominate strain. Take a few bong rips. This will definitely help you relax. As far as clinical studies go, we need to do a lot more research.
