Reduce the frequency of nightmares in people with stress-related sleep problems
Compared to conventional sleep medications, cannabis works far better, is not habit-forming and leaves a person feeling extremely well the next day.
Indica strains are better sleep aids
Terpene called Myrcene is known to have a sedative effect
Avoid Sativa-dominant strains because it tend to have an energizing and uplifting effect, which is not helpful when you want to fall asleep
THC help you fall asleep faster with less difficulty, may reduce the number of times you wake up in the middle of the night and can cut back on REM sleep, the stage in which we dream, which could help individuals with PTSD or anxiety who endure rest-sabotaging nightmares
CBN tends to have a sedating effect, so choosing a strain high in CBN may be a good choice
Aged cannabis tends to have higher levels of CBN because the THC breaks down into CBN as it ages, making it a better choice for getting good sleep
