Sleeping Disorders

Sleep disorders are conditions that disturb the ability to achieve restful sleep, impacting safety, relationships, work performance, and mental health. Poor sleep can lead to long-term consequences, making it crucial to recognise the signs of a sleep disorder. Our clinic is committed to assessing and addressing the root causes of sleep conditions, considering their impact and providing effective, personalised treatments.

How Could Cannabis-Based Treatments Help?

Cannabis is acknowledged for its potential to alleviate symptoms for individuals struggling with sleep disorders. The legalisation of cannabis for medical purposes has led to more people exploring medical cannabis, particularly when conventional therapies fall short in effectively managing the impact of sleep disorders. Although there remains a scarcity of research focusing specifically on the effects of medicinal cannabis in treating these conditions, many patients do consider medical cannabis after other treatments have proven insufficient.

"Sleep is a fundamental aspect of health, it plays a vital role in allowing both our mind, and our body, time to recover for the next day.In a clinical setting, medical cannabis can be prescribed to eligible patients to assist in the treatment of sleeping disorders because of its sedative and relaxing qualities. For those who struggle to feel rested, or suffer from bad nightmares, THC is a useful component as it increases deep sleep at the expense of REM sleep. Evidence suggests THC may also help reduce sleep onset times and address pain concerns that disturb sleep quality, while CBD has shown to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, which can help in achieving a more restful, and relaxing bedtime routine."
