  1. Super helpful video! Cannabis may improve sleep in people with certain conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), multiple sclerosis and chronic pain. Heavy cannabis use, especially on a long-term basis, may have consequences for sleep, so as Dr. Michael suggested try a small dosage. Personally, I would try CBD which is more calming and may help produce feelings of relaxation and sleepiness, than THC which is more stimulating and it may produce feelings of euphoria and energy boost. Loved this useful video Dr. Micheal! Thanks for sharing it with us!🙌❤👍
