FreeUrMind - I got a question first, is that why you choose your name, to be free of thoughts before going to sleep? In medicine they do not teach you about illicit drugs, well, because they are illegal. You will not be able to tell a psychologist about using pot in your daily life because of the same reason as above. So probably asking it here on this forum is like going to a doctor and getting your questions solved.
There is a lot that is unknown about what all this drug does to a person, and the pharmaceutical industry is top on the list of people who lobby against it because it threatens a whole list of chemicals they market thus interrupting a flow of money they have become accustomed to.
My advice is smoke the stuff before you go to sleep. The cycle where you dream is interrupted. If you have nightmares this of course also prevents their occurrence.
Something to know about legal drugs they make. Any single drug they market is classified into two categories of their effect, one is called the therapeutic effect, and the other is called the adverse affect. Due to further marketing the latter in merely known as side effects. The first of those categories (the therapeutic effect) is what they chose out of the whole list of symptoms this drug does to the human body. The effect they chose to market is what they think is in demand at that given time, and this changes if they do not sell enough of the initial product.
Take for example a depression drug, it has all these effects on the human body, and they make it sound like those other effects are just side effects like it does not occur often to people who take it. Yet this is not true, a drug may do 12 different things to the human body and only one of those they picked to sell it; in this case a depression medication. Yet if they want, they can remarked it and sell the very same drug as something else, such as a medication to help you stop smoking cigarettes.
So medicine is not a pure science, it is like throwing darts with your eyes closed. A chemical does so many things to a person, yet they make it sound like it does just one. If they had the science down then it would just have a single effect; so in a sense, a pill is like throwing a grenade.
So you will find out the same thing with pot, it has many effects on the human body, just like them we know some of them but there are many more; we really don't know enough about science to give you a positive answer.
be careful about classifications on people too. Most diagnosis were invented by the pharmacutical industry themselves as a marketing plow with the doctors they distribute their drugs to. People are too dynamic to fit into a nice neatly wrapped box. Insomnia can mean many things and no two people experience the exact same thing even if it is the exact same causative factor.
So be more clear what it is you are experiencing here. Can you not sleep because you are thinking about it when you sleep and when you wake up? Are some of these nightmares? When did this all begin? Are there instances when you are able to sleep, if so what happened different that day before going to sleep.
I have nightmares about people being fucking selfish around me, and taking what stuff I got left while in my sleep. Those greedy bastards. When I don't smoke the dreams come back, and when I wake up I am thinking about it already. When I smoke none of this happens and it has been like this my whole life; it works.
It does not matter a whole bunch how you ingest it, the root chemical is the cabs. Smoking it puts it into your blood stream right away. Eating it takes longer to get to the blood stream. You could even make a dermal patch because the molecules are small enough to go through the three layers of skin. How this works is kind of interesting. Think of the skin as being built by bricks glued together by mortar. The chemical travels inside the mortar to thus make it down deep enough to reach the blood supply.
What you what to do is what Timothy Leary discovered. Get a friend to get you wasted like no time before, then let your friend ask you why you don't sleep at night. You will tell him because when you are wasted you can not pretend and have this charade of who you think you are and who others want you to be; when you are wasted you are not smart enough to put up this charade. Then deal with the causative factor, if people are the reason, go kick their butt. Then you will be able to sleep.
Oh, and I would not be telling people where you live here on this forum, this is a growers forum and that would not be a good idea!!! I would edit your posts and remove those remarks. Imagine a person at work working all day to get their job done, imagine if their job was gather information. Those people are passionate about their work too, often they become law informant because someone they knew while growing up was either hurt by a drug interaction, or hurt themselves so their sister makes a career out of getting you
. Otherwise I will get a moderator to do that for you.
