Good rest’s essential for the proper performance of your body, and sleeping is fundamental for that rest – when sleeping, we’re resting physically and mentally, so our body gets some rest time to perform properly again.

However, many people, especially when hitting 50, tend to struggle to fall asleep properly – researchers state that, in Spain, about 4 million people suffer from chronic insomnia, very bad problem with different solutions.

Pharmaceutical industry offers chemical anxiolytics to the patients in order to solve the illnesses, but these medicines tend to be very aggressive for the body, so many patients prefer more natural remedies – cannabis comes into play.

Cannabis and insomnia

The use of medicinal cannabis has become an effective treatment against insomnia because it helps restore the natural sleeping cycle.

Insomnia can be caused by physical pain or mental stress, so marijuana’s a solution for both factors because it can alleviate the pain and relax the mind; some people suffer from night terror, so they can’t fall asleep properly, and, for these patients, marijuana’s very useful, since REM stage gets reduced and, consequently, dreaming possibilities get reduced.


Gea Seeds wants to tell you about marijuana benefits for insomnia problems, but, undoubtedly, long-lasting marijuana use can be harmful for your health – marijuana’s not panacea and, currently, new research needs to appear in the market.

Which marijuana strain’s better?

CBD and THC are beneficial for those suffering from insomnia; CBD is better for chronic-pain relief, and THC is more beneficial for the other cases, so high-CBD/high-THC marijuana strains are very useful depending on the type of insomniaabove-20% THC marijuana strains aren’t suggested.


For marijuana genetics, indica strains are better than sativa against insomnia – indica relax and sativa have more euphoric and stimulating effects.

How to consume it

The most common marijuana-consuming method’s a joint, that is, smoking method; other patients don’t like smoking, so they tend to different methods such as vaporizing, tinctures or sublingual drops – all these methods are equally valid, although vaporizing, tinctures and drops can be less harmful for your health (it’s more difficult to control the exact consumed quantity).

There’s a very common method, although not suggested against insomnia: cannabis-food consumption – long-lasting marijuana effects with much varied waiting time, so consuming time’s not exact and in advance (much longer-lasting effects could hamper your wake-up time).

How much marijuana to consume

Marijuana doses are always very different, depending on a wide range of factors, such as marijuana strain, consumption method, consumer’s metabolism, weight, tolerance… You know, the best way to know the ideal amount’s keep trying and experimenting little by little.

When to consume marijuana

Consumption time’s different too, depending on the consumer and the marijuana strain – average in-body marijuana-assimilation and effect-feeling’s 30-60 min. (when smoking, the effects are kind of instantaneous).

This has been a brief overview on marijuana as a possible solution against insomnia – if still in doubt, leave your comment and we’ll reply as soon as possible (we hope this post has been helpful for you).
