Deep Sleep has been shown to Increase with Marijuana Use

Cannabis allows for longer deep sleep which experts agree is important for achieving optimal health.(Source) The reduction in rapid eye movement sleep (REM) allows for less dreaming. People who suffer from PTSD can benefit from deep sleep to reduce memory recall. Deep sleep helps your body to repair and recover allowing for a more restful sleep.

Specific marijuana strains target deeper sleep habits. The cannabinoids THC and CBN improve quality of sleep. Terpenes such as LimoneneBeta Myrcene, and Nerolidol promote sleep and help with insomnia. Cannabidiol (CBD), conversely, has been shown to give more wakeful sleep with an increase in REM sleep.(Source)

Reducing or stopping marijuana can diminish deep sleep. Sleep aids and alcohol have the same effect. Many people have reported vivid dreams upon stopping marijuana use.(Source)
