What are Sleep Disorders?
A sleep disorder, or somnipathy, is a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or animal. Some sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functioning.
Sleep disorders are a group of conditions that affect the ability to sleep well on a regular basis. Whether they are caused by a health problem or by too much stress.
Can Medical Cannabis help treat Sleep Disorders?
In 2012, Massachusetts passed an initiative which legalized Cannabis for the treatment of chronic insomnia and other sleep disorders. There is an extensive, ever-growing body of peer-reviewed medical research – all supported by countless patient reports – which attest to the efficacy of Cannabis in aiding restful sleep for patients of all ages. Though every patient responds to treatment regimens differently, this often turns out to be a blend of both conventional medication and medical Cannabis, which has repeatedly proven effective not only in improving sleep, but also in alleviating the mental and emotional components which often lie behind insomnia, such as anxiety, depression, and stress.
Cannabis can decrease SOL so that you fall asleep in a matter of minutes rather than hours.
Many users of medical Cannabis report experiencing deeper, more satisfying sleep with fewer interruptions from waking in the middle of the night.
