Description

Do you have questions about sleep and how cannabis can benefit you?

Please join us at Farmacy’s Clinic and speaker Andrew Gill who will be discussing cannabis use and how it can help treat your insomnia

According to Statistics Canada, an estimated 3.3 million Canadians 15 or older have insomnia. Insomnia can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions. Research into cannabis has shed light on the sleep inducing properties of cannabis. There is a dichotomy between Cannabidiol (CBD) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in their effects on sleep patterns. THC increases sleep and can cause drowsiness, reduces the amount of time to fall asleep, and increases the length of time spent sleeping (deep sleep stage only). CBD induces the opposite effect and can increase wakefulness. It can be used to treat sleep disorders such as excessive somnolence (drowsiness), this common sleep disturbance can cause sleepiness or fatigue during the day, may affect mood and result in trouble focusing on tasks.

Studies have found cannabis to possess properties beneficial for sleeping and helps:

-Decrease insomnia

-More time spent asleep

-Deeper/longer sleep

-Decrease restlessness

-Increase relaxation
