I used overnight sleep aids for a long time and after a while they were no longer effective.
- It became a chore to go to sleep at night.
Even if I had a long day and lots of physical activity, I still had a difficult time sleeping. I closed my eyes and laid there in bed awake for hours and hours. I could lay in bed with my eyes open and the lights on and I would still never fall asleep. The doctor prescribed Ambien for me and it had a lot of terrible side effects. It made me sleepwalk and I woke up feeling very angry. I told the doctor that I didn’t think it was a very good idea for me to continue taking the night time sleep aid. The doctor suggested trying recreational marijuana. Recreational marijuana has been proven to help improve sleep in many cases. With people that have chronic pain, ptsd, and restless legs, marijuana was proven to help better than many other prescription pills and OTC medications. There are compounds inside of the cannabis sativa plant and these cannabinoids help promote sleepiness when used at high doses during the evening. I went to the recreational marijuana shop and I picked out several products that I thought might be able to help. I tried smokable marijuana flower, edibles, tinctures, distillates, and even a couple of beers that were infused with cannabis. When I used the products before going to sleep, I found myself sleeping for longer and I did not wake up feeling angry or confused.
