I often have trouble getting to sleep, and since weed can make me drowsy I figured I'd try smoking a tiny bit before bed. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience on this? Something odd happened to me last night..

Anyway, I smoked a little and layed down. I definately felt tired, but it strangely seemed to make it worse. At first I kept drifting into a strange state.. like sudden dreams that only lasted a few seconds. At one point it completely felt like I was outside and there was a coyote charging at me, and I heard a growling/barking coyote noise that sounded completely real. I jerked awake with my heart pounding..with the noise and image very fresh in my head. This happened a few times, not just with a coyote but with other wild animals and a person shouting (This was probably because I was walking outside all day and saw a billion coyote tracks, though I wasn't scared or anything at the time). Keep in mind I was just a little buzzed, not anywhere high enough for me to feel that normally, but I guess it was enhancing dreams?
After the weed wore off, it stopped happening, but I just could not get to sleep. I layed in bed for hours with no sleep, tossing and turning. This has happened before with no weed, but it's very rare for me. I suppose I slept eventually, off and on.

Sorry for the long post, but I just wanted to share haha. Has anyone used weed to try and sleep, and has it helped?

Hmmm... sounds strange. Maybe it was just lucid dreaming? I won't say you were tripping cuz I have a strong belief that weed does not make you truly trip so idk. I smoke at least 3 bowls every night and one right before I go to sleep and it always puts me right out.

Weed will help a ton, I have terrible insomnia and I smoke a bowl and fall asleep within an hour but I could right then I just don't want to waste the high. Also the coyote hallucinations were probably caused by the bud and sleep deprivation combination. The same thing has happened to me before except with dogs barking and it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at my window. Just keep smoking and it'll help a lot.

Sometimes I mess up my sleep pattern, so I wake up at like 5PM. What I do is start baking early (It's sort of fatiguing to be high for long periods of time) so I smoke a little when I wake and gradually increase the amount through the day. 1 hour before bedtime I load a fat bowl and incinerate it, always gets me tired. Requires a decent amount of weed though.

Oh and like the fellow above me said: go for deep indicas, real couchlockers.

Yeah might have been the type of weed I had, but I'm not exactly an expert. I have 2 different kinds right now, maybe I'll try smoking the other one instead.

Indica's definitly help me sleep. I smoke about an hr or so before I want to hit the hay. If I smoke and go to bed I'll wanna enjoy the high and listen to my ipod. So by the time I'm done being high I get reallyyyy drowsy and just crash. I wake up the next morning refreshed as fuck. I hate smoking sativa's before bed. It just makes me want to get up and do shit and I feel like it's a waste.
