Could marijuana use harm your sleep and cause insomnia?

Marijuana is not a good sleep aid.

Like alcohol, it can help you fall asleep but that sleep will be of poor quality.

Withdrawal can also lead to rebound insomnia.

Now a new study suggests that marijuana use could be responsible for a variety of sleep problems.

Researchers reviewed self-reported data from individuals aged between 20 and 59 years of age.

Any history of cannabis use was associated with an increased chance of difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, daytime sleepiness and non-restorative sleep.

They found that both current and past marijuana users were more likely to experience problems with sleep, with age of first use being a strong indicator of sleep problems.

Adults who started using cannabis before the age of 15 (regardless of whether or not they still use the drug) were more than twice as likely to find it difficult to fall asleep and to experience non-restorative sleep. They were also almost twice as likely to experience daytime sleepiness.
