Insomnia is the inability to either fall asleep, stay asleep, or not feel rested after sleep. Insomnia can result in fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, and impaired memory. Phytocannabinoids and terpenes in the cannabis plant present sedative properties, thereby inducing sleep. Targeting the endocannabinoid system’s CB1 receptors, cannabis reduces sleep latency. Cannabis has been shown to increase slow-wave sleep, linked to cerebral restoration and the maintenance and consolidation of sleep.
Similarly, gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease impair the quality of life for millions around the world. Cannabis’ anti-inflammatory properties help manage symptoms of pain, bloating, and nausea associated with GI conditions such as IBS and IBD.
Cannabis medicine does not exhibit the severe side effects of traditional narcotics, opioid analgesics, and neuromodulators. However, common side effects can include: dry mouth, dizziness, drowsiness, hypotension, nausea, initial tachycardia, paranoia.
The most common side effects are temporary in nature and can be avoided by starting with a low dose and gradually increasing the dosage.
Please stop the medication and consult your physician in case of side effects persist.
