Why Does Cannabis Cause You To Dream Less?

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

It is known that cannabis is effective in helping individuals that suffer from insomnia; of the many medicinal applications of cannabis, sleep aid is certainly one of them. What is strange, however, is that many of those that use cannabis as a regular sleep aid report having a loss of dream activity or an inability recollect any dreams at all. Considering the normal effects of marijuana on normal, waking consciousness, why is it that the dream state is dulled while sleeping under its effects? 
 
To address the question of marijuana effecting REM sleep, “Feinberg, et al. (1975) compared the sleep patterns of experienced marijuana users on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a placebo. Feinberg, et al. (1975) reported reduced eye movement activity and less REM sleep in the THC condition. They also reported a REM rebound effect, that is more REM activity, on withdrawal from THC. So,there exists some scientific evidence that marijuana interferes with REM sleep.”  
 
REM sleep is the stage of sleeping where our dreams occur and our brain begins to function almost as if you're awake, only your surroundings are produced by your mind. These dream states, when experienced excessively, can exhaust the mind much like normal consciousness, which results in grogginess after waking even after a sufficient night of sleep. When cannabis is used as a sleep aid, it drastically reduces the time spent in the REM stage of sleep and actually lengthens the time spent in deep sleep or the slow wave sleep stage. In this deep stage of sleep, the body is able to devote itself to healing and rejuvenating from the physical and emotional exhaustion of the day before.
