I slept in on a sunny, fall Saturday morning last week just because I could.
And while I normally like to get out and enjoy days like that, it was so nice to linger in bed and just happily doze on and off.
Until I discovered the medical marijuana benefits for insomnia, a morning like that wasn’t possible. Insomnia is one of the worst situations I have ever had to experience. And it sort of whacked me over the head. However, it was a long time coming when I look back on it. I just always took rest for granted and never really committed to getting the rest I needed. That led to nearly a year of not sleeping. If medical marijuana wasn’t legal in this state, I don’t know if I could have continued on living like that. The doctors had to dose me so much with sleeping pills to get me to sleep. But then, it was like being anesthetized. And the next day, I’d be wandering around in a fog. Finally, I sought an alternative and ended up at one in a series of cannabis dispensary events. There, I spoke with experts who were very knowledgeable in medical marijuana benefits as it related to insomnia. I was intrigued that I promptly got busy dealing with the cannabis rules of my state so I could access the legal weed store. This was a life changer for sure. After about 2 weeks of medical marijuana treatment, I was sleeping half the night naturally. A few months later and I was getting 7 hours of pure, restorative sleep and it’s all thanks to cannabis flower products.
