I have a chronic (snicker) problem with middle-of-the-night insomnia. Pretty much every night I wake up and it may take 1-2 hours to fall back sleep. My mind is usually racing thinking about all the stuff I have to do or whatever is going on in my life. I have no problem falling asleep initially. But somewhere around 2-4am I’ll usually wake up and then not be able to go back to sleep.
I’ve heard that marijuana can help people sleep, but it’s hard to really know how true it is since it seems to cure everything. I’m seriously considering a trip to Colorado to see if marijuana would help me fall back asleep sooner. But before I go, I figure I’d ask here to see if anyone has some first-hand experience with this issue.
I’m not really so concerned with being able to initially fall asleep easier. Instead, I am more interested if it can help getting back to sleep when I wake up and my mind won’t slow down. The problem I’ve had with over-the-counter and prescription drugs is that they help put my body to sleep, but I don’t feel very rested. It’s like my mind never really relaxed.
