Are you sleeping because of THC, or are you sleeping because of CBD? While many studies are looking at cannabinoids for sleep, few are well-controlled, and even fewer separate doses of cannabis into the individual cannabinoids. Furthermore, researchers believe most (if not all) cannabinoids have a biphasic effect.
A low dose delivers certain benefits, and a higher dose can reverse those benefits. For example, a low dose of THC is relaxing and stress relieving, but a high dose may provoke anxiety and paranoia. According to the 2004 study above, the increase in wakefulness only occurred with the higher dose of 15 mg THC in combination with 15 mg of CBD. The researchers did not report the same results with lower doses of THC:CBD, nor with THC alone. These findings “suggest that CBD may have an alerting effect that is dependent on dose.” Pros and Cons of THC for Sleep. Higher continuous doses of THC may be beneficial to a good night’s sleep, but have adverse impacts on alertness the following day. published a fascinating report in the American Journal of Addictions (2013). It was called, “Around‐the‐Clock Oral THC Effects on Sleep in Male Chronic Daily Cannabis Smokers.” They worked with chronic cannabis consumers (all men), at a sleep clinic.
The researchers administered between 40 to 120 mg of THC daily to each participant while monitoring their sleep patterns. An average dose for most consumers is roughly 10 mg. Therefore 40 mg a day is technically a medium to high dose — especially day after day. Upon analysis of the results, the authors found higher levels of THC in the participant’s blood work “were significantly associated with shorter sleep latency, less difficulty falling asleep, and more daytime sleep the following day.” So once again, higher THC seemed to improve sleep, but also increase grogginess. As a patient, how can you consume cannabis for sleep — to get the results you want? With no federal oversight, nor advanced clinical trials, you’ll quickly find out there are no suggested serving sizes on how to consume cannabis for sleep. With that caveat out of the way, there are a few basic conclusions we can draw from the scientific literature. Higher doses of THC (15 mg or more) seem to improve sleep but may impact function the following day. CBD does increase wakefulness at certain doses, but the research doesn’t provide much direction on dosage. There may be a benefit to combining THC with CBD to promote sleep and reduce the ‘hangover’ the following morning. Overall, THC is likely to be safer than a pharmaceutical sleep aid. As a patient, you will want to conduct careful self-experimentation on dose, timing, and chemovar selection. If possible, seek the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional with experience working with medical cannabis. Always start with small doses and slowly titrate up until you achieve the desired effects without an adverse reaction. Vaping Masters is a vape shop in Florence, South-carolina.
