There are four stages in a typical sleep-wake cycle, with multiple repetitions during a typical night. The lightest and shortest phase is stage 1, lasting 5% of the total cycle while stage 2 is a deeper slumber with decreasing temperature and heart rate, and completing 50% of the sleep.
However, the deepest stage of sleep is stage 3, with the occurrence of tissue repair and growth, along with the strengthening of the immune system. One may feel groggy and cognitively impaired for up to an hour or so if he has woken up during this stage.
The fourth and final stage is REM sleep. REM – Rapid eye movement occurs during the time that you dream, which is typically up to 2 hours every night.
Why is dreaming important?
The purpose of dreaming has been studied for decades. In recent years, the significance of REM sleep was emphasized by Dr. Matthew Walker, along with other experts, suggesting how dream sleeps holds functions fundamental to well-being and performance.
According to Walker, painful emotions regarding traumatic episodes experienced during the day are removed by REM sleep. Besides the emotional resolution, dreaming also enhances the creative process and problem-solving skills of an individual.
How does cannabis affect dreaming?
The answer holds ambiguity but studies have suggested that REM sleep can be decreased or suppressed by cannabis. However, scientists are studying the effects of certain cannabinoids on dreaming.
While one of the main psychoactive components of cannabis, THC, has been shown to suppress the REM sleep, the results have lacked consistent replication. A study conducted in 2019 has demonstrated less overall REM sleep of cannabis consumers, in comparison to non-consumers, with increased bizarreness when dreams were recalled.
Can CBD affect dreaming?
Although CBD is advantageous for sleep, its effects over dreaming have not been understood yet. A 2017 review of sleep, cannabis, cannabinoids, has however suggested that dreaming can be affected by dosage.
According to the review, the onset of REM sleep was increased on the day of administration of high-dose CBD, while a mid-range dose of CBD showed a decrease in the onset of REM sleep the day after administration.
Additionally, a significant impact in dreams has been reported by CBD consumers, who have claimed that the cannabinoids helped the experience more positive, vivid, and lucid dreams, along with a super-enhanced recall of their nocturnal adventures.
Furthermore, enough evidence suggests the potential of CBD as a treatment for REM sleep behavior disorder, which causes diagnosed patients to act out dreams in violent or vocal ways.
The dreaming disturbances are a more common experience of PTSD patients, for whom some amount of REM suppression may prove beneficial, due to their nightmares.
Taking a t-break or refraining from the use of weed will cause heavy cannabis consumers to be familiar with “crazy” dreams. According to Kebra Smith-Bolden, registered nurse and CEO of CannaHealth, characterization of rebound can be done by the return of vivid and unusual dreams because your mind tends to become reacquainted with the REM stage of sleep.
While a means of recouping lost dream-sleep can be provided by the REM rebound, it can be disturbing. Individuals who tend to undergo REM rebound, often experience an increased number of nightmares, denser REM sleep, rapid onset of REM sleep, along with elongated REM cycles. Heavy cannabis use is not recommended for many reasons and this is one of them, according to Dr. Tishler.
Cycling between excessive REM sleep suppression and REM rebounding is essential if cannabis is your go-to sleep aid. Dr. Tishler, knowing neither insomnia nor REM suppression is good, suggests the striking of a balance between overall sleep and REM sleep, in particular, taking care of dosages, as small doses of cannabis can lead to quality sleep without any apparent REM suppression.

What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a severe pain caused by disruption in the sciatica nerve. Anything that disturbs the nerve results in extreme and sometimes, unbearable pain.

A compression on the Sciatica causes this severe pain. The major causes of compression are a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine.
What is CBD oil
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is derived from the Marijuana plant. It relieves the pain without causing any psychoactive or mind-altering effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD powder from the marijuana plant. Coconut or olive oil is mixed in it for better application.
The recent researches on CBD oil have revealed its anti-seizure, neuroprotective and pain relieving properties. Due to its wondrous effects on human body, many celebrities advocate for CBD.
Utility of CBD oil for Sciatica patients
CBD oil works by increasing the number of pain modulators that stimulate a response to the pain. Our mind has cannabinoid receptors that modulate the pathways that stimulate a response to the pain and negative emotions.
As sciatica pain arises, the CBD oil applied on the respective part works to reach the brain in order to stimulate a faster response to the pain.
While the Sciatica is a very painful condition, it is mostly treatable with medicines. However, most pain relievers have side effects that cause harm in the long run. In contrast, CBD oil works naturally to enhance the receptors with minimum side effects.
Best CBD oil to relieve Sciatica
