Taking moderate doses of marijuana at the right time can help boost energy levels
Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is a complex and controversial disorder characterized by chronic symptoms of fatigue that have no apparent cause and are not relieved by rest. Although very little research has been conducted on the potential of cannabis for the treatment of ME, a myriad of patients have described significant relief. Cannabis may have the necessary components to raise that energy boost needed to cope with exhausting day-to-day tasks.
Although there appear to be no studies or clinical trials specifically investigating the ability of cannabis to improve fatigue symptoms, there are numerous reports of patients reporting subjective relief of symptoms. Typically, patients report experiencing relief from sleep disturbances or non-refreshing sleep, joint and muscle pain, depression, and emotional imbalance.
Some patients also report that cannabis use actually improves the primary symptom of fatigue, and many of these reports indicate that sativa-dominant strains are more effective than Indica-dominant strains. The potential of cannabis to improve sleeplessness is a well-established fact. Different studies have shown that, with cannabis, REM sleep is reduced and deep sleep is increased, which can lead to greater overall levels of rest in the individual.
If you choose a strain that promotes relaxation and drowsiness before bed, it can help you sleep through the night and wake up with renewed energy. On the other hand, choosing a more stimulating variety can help you feel more active and awake during the day. There are many options to try, and you’ll need to pay attention to the one that works best for you. Keeping a log or diary handy can be helpful in this regard.
