Does cannabis use affect dreams?

Our brains are always at work. Even when we are in a deep sleep! If you have ever taken a break from your regular cannabis routine, you might have noticed a rebound of crazy dreams.

How cannabis use affects dreams in REM sleep

Why does this happen? In studies of patients with chronic sleep disorders (using cannabis), researchers noticed something during brain activity: A decrease in the REM stage, aka the dream stage. REM sleep typically occurs about 90 minuets after we fall asleep, and is characterized by the quick side to side eye movement. When we consume high THC Cannabis before bed, the cannabinoids work to suppress certain receptors in our brain that are responsible for REM, meaning we dream less, or, not at all.

There is no evidence yet that suppressing your REM sleep has any negative side effects, yet it has shown to have very positive effects! For instance, if you suffer from conditions like Nightmare Disorder, PTSD, and Insomnia, cannabis has the potential of alleviating these problems by putting a damper on brain activity, and keeping you asleep! This may not be ideal for those of us who like to lucid dream or record our dreams, however, you can always take a T-break, and let your mind take you for a wild ride!
