I used to take all different kinds of medicine to try and help me sleep.
Some of it worked, but it never worked for very long before my body adjusted to it. Benadryl worked for a few months, but then I had to take more and more of it to achieve the same result. When you get to a point that taking 5 Benadryl doesn’t help you sleep for more than a couple of hours, you know it’s time to try something else. My saving grace came in the form of cannabis, and a friend that helped me sleep better than I ever had before. My friend Pat didn’t have any sleep issues, he didn’t use cannabis for medicinal purposes he just liked being high. Pat saw that I was struggling, and gave me a little medical cannabis with the advice to smoke it right before bed and see what happened. Two bowls of OG Kush later and I was out like a light, and I slept through the entire night! Ever since then I have been a staunch cannabis user, and have a little bit before bed every night. Whereas the other sleeping aids and medications always led to me developing a tolerance against them, that is not true when it comes to medical cannabis. With so many hundreds of indica strains to choose from, my body never adjusts to medical cannabis. I spoke to my doctor about these results, and although he wasn’t surprised he said he still wouldn’t write me a prescription for medical cannabis. Maybe I need a new doctor?
