What is the best type of cannabis for insomnia?

"I am currently using two capsules of cannabis oil but I’m still only getting 4 hours of sleep."

Hello, choosing the right marijuana strain is an important part of the treatment process. Sativa-dominant strains tend to have an energizing and uplifting effect, which is not helpful when you want to fall asleep. Not everyone experiences the “upper” feeling, but it’s generally best to avoid Sativa strains when sleep is your goal. ndica-dominant strains are typically the best choice for treating insomnia. Indica strains typically induce a sleepy feeling that helps you drift off and stay asleep.The cannabinoid called cannabinol (CBN) tends to have a sedating effect, so choosing a strain high in CBN may be a good choice. Aged cannabis tends to have higher levels of CBN because the THC breaks down into CBN as it ages, making it a better choice for getting good sleep. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) also appears to be effective in treating insomnia. It may help you fall asleep faster with less difficulty and it may reduce the number of times you wake up in the middle of the night. THC can worsen anxiety symptoms when used in high doses. If your insomnia stems from anxiety or you feel anxiety as a result of your sleep issues, opt for a strain that’s low in THC.
