I believe I dream when I smoke lots of cannabis. However my consciousness goes to such a deep place I don't remember the dreams when I wake up. When I am dreaming I will witness the events through a 'fog'.
Quitting after months of heavy smoking makes it difficult to sleep deeply. Dreams are quite vivid, to the point that they will wake me up. I can remember them with clarity.
From what I've heard one of the of the worst parts of PTSD is nightmares. Reliving traumatic moments night after night. My theory is that cannabis helps people forget these types of dreams and make them less intense. The foggy deep place in the cannabis sleep lessens the impact of the nightmares. Helping people lose their fear and come to terms with their trauma.
I have a friend who fought in Vietnam. He was given all sorts of psychiatric drugs to control his PTSD. None of them came close to how effectively cannabis has controlled it.
I had a strain, most smokers didn't enjoy it. I had a friend that worked a night shift, he loved it. Because it acted like coffee. Besides the mild stone it made it impossible to sleep and gave him energy to work hard at his job. The other smokers didn't like these effects, wanted to relax after a day of hard work.
I would like to know the place of origin of this strain. My guess is Lebanon considering the plants morphology and maturation. I'd expect it to contain some CBD.

For me, the more panicked dreams simply tend to re-create the -dynamic- or general nature of the original angst. Not necessarily a repeat of the specific events themselves. But events that re-create abstract situations, that create similar anxiety or conundrum.

I listened to an interview the other day re. dreams, and was surprised by how long they said average dreams last, and how many per night. I had always thought it was a very brief period just before waking, or short period during REM sleep. But that's not what the interviewee said.

If I quit then the bedsheets are soaked in sweat for a week. This is a sign that cannabis is physically addictive, I think

I enjoy what cannabis can do to help me fall a sleep while feeling less pain from my body. I have noticed I appear to dream less which has made me wonder whether the falling asleep easier is worth the belief that I'm dreaming less. REM for survival right?

Different varieties with different profiles can encourage dreaming, not the terpenes as much as CBD. Varieties that are mostly CBD do not seem to block remembering your dreams like THC varieties do.
Few if any heavy daily smokers do remember their dreams, ask friends and see, they are still dreaming they just do not remember them.

Yeah, I am a heavy daily smoker: I dont know If I dont dream, or If I cant remember my dreams... But If sametimes I am a week without smoke any marihuana, then I have the most intenses n vivid dreams: it's fine with the erotics or nices ones, but is a hell with any nightmare...

We'd/I'd traditionally distinguished Insomnia form Dyssomnia, with insomnia being an inability or difficulty getting to sleep, and dyssomnia being a broken sleep schedule, with intermittent waking through the night. Either from dreaming, or from other causes.

Your spell-check will probably indicate that the word dyssomnia doesn't exist. At least not in its programming. However, I'm fairly certain the word existed in the DSMs.

I've mentioned it on several other threads but I have quite a disruptive sleep disorder. I can often go a few days without sleep but only getting an hour or two, or even going a night without sleep is the norm for me. Most of the time I'm totally exhausted and regardless it's nearly impossible for me to fall asleep and stay out for a full 8 hours as needed. I've been to a sleep clinic, specialist, and have tried several prescription meds with no relief. Chronic insomnia is unbelievably stressful and brings with it a large amount of depression and anxiety.

For me, cannabis has been the most beneficial thing for allowing me to get to sleep and stay asleep for a reasonable amount of time. It doesn't solve the problem 100% but it's the closest I can get to it. For the time that I still can't sleep it takes the edge off all the racing thoughts and worries. It also seems to make physical pain more tolerable and less noticeable.

I've definitely noticed that it has slowed dream activity for me. When I do dream it is harder for me to recollect what exactly it was I dreamed about. I tend to sleep more deeply when I use cannabis and am not as restless. I wish it would be explored more by the scientific community so we are able understand what it does to the brain and how it affects sleep.
