📲 Frequently asked questions
Is marijuana good for sleep?
In principle yes, because among the most important general effects of cannabis are relaxation and sleep induction. But not all strains produce the same effects, and sativa strains can create the opposite effect because they accelerate thoughts, produce euphoria, and in some cases even cause tachycardia.
What is the best marijuana for sleeping?
Until a few years ago the best marijuana for better sleep was indica, and they are still very good today, but right now CBD-rich strains have proven to be better in this regard when it comes to enhancing sleep without feeling stimulation or other psychotropic effects.
Can marijuana make you sleep for a long time?
Yes, especially CBD-rich genetics, and there are many people who have told us that they had never been able to sleep for such a long time until they started taking cannabidiol. Many people take melatonin or doxylamine to sleep better, but these drugs are short-acting, and although they help people fall asleep, they often wake up in the middle of the night and find it hard to get back to sleep, something that does not happen with cannabis.
