Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by chillin420, Jun 16, 2013.

  1. so ever since i started smoking again i have realized my sleep schedule is fucked, i try and get to sleep but i cant so i just listen to music on my ipod. i have also tried smoking when i cant sleep and it does help a bit it  gets me into like a sedated state but why is this happening? i actually fall asleep after about 3 hours or just laying in bed.  :bongin:  :confused_2:

    Weed doesn't help most people sleep. It actually delays the time until you reach Rapid-Eye Movement (REM) sleep, which is the dreaming phase of sleep in which your body does the majority of resting and healing.
    General factors that affect sleep are amount of mental and physical activity during the day. Basically, if you don't work hard during the day, it's going to be harder to fall asleep. Try adding in an exercise routine - one that will really make you sweat or tire your muscles out. Don't settle for a half hour bike ride, most likely you're just mostly coasting along. Alternatively, attempt to learn as much as you can within a set amount of times (a few hours is ideal) and testing yourself afterwards. That sense of accomplishment (from either learning or completing an exercise routine) helps set your mind at peace.
    If that's not the problem, you may have too much on your mind to be able to sleep. In that case I recommend meditation (in fact I recommend meditation to everyone regardless) to clear your mind before sleeping. There's a brilliant thread on it stickied in the Religion, Beliefs, and Spirituality sub-forum.
