Melatonin & Cannabis Make A Dream Combo


Everyone in the world has experienced sleep issues at some point in their lives. Sometimes it is anxiety or stress keeping us up, but those dealing with chronic sleep conditions generally have a hormone imbalance of some kind. One naturally occurring hormone that helps us drift into dreamland is melatonin. 

Melatonin helps us reach our REM cycle, an essential part of feeling we’ve had a restful night’s sleep. When people are having issues sleeping through the night they often turn to over-the-counter melatonin supplements. Others who are dealing with insomnia or other sleep problems will often turn to smoking indicas or eating edibles. However, an issue many have with using cannabis for sleep is that they no longer dream. While drifting off to dreamland gets easier, the land itself goes up in a cloud of smoke.




Fortunately, many cannabis users are reporting to Erowid that combining their nightly dose of the good herb with a melatonin supplement can help induce more vivid dreams no matter how stoned they stay on a daily basis. Dreams are more vivid, some say almost verging on psychedelic. But the day after hangover is more intense when using both together.

Despite this slight side effect, both of these naturally occurring compounds can help us get a little bit more rest. Even better, we can still count on slipping off to dreamland, which is a plus for almost all stoners.
