Cannabis Replaces Sleep Aids for Majority of Users

A Washington State University study has explored the use of cannabis as a sleep aid, finding that most cannabis users who reported getting a good night’s sleep have discontinued using prescription or over-the-counter sleep aids. The study, published in the journal Exploration of Medicine, surveyed 1,225 cannabis users and found that more than 80% no longer use sleep aids such as melatonin and benzodiazepines. Researchers also found that cannabis users have a strong preference for inhaling high-THC cannabis by smoking joints or vaporizing flower, methods that have been shown to help people with sleep difficulties.
