Why Does Weed Make You Tired?

Potential side effects are possible for any medication you take into your body. Before taking any cannabis product, it may be wise to consult with your healthcare professional to ensure that it won’t interfere with any other medications you may be taking. Additionally, before smoking, ingesting, or topically applying any cannabis product, it’s best to learn about the potential side effects, including increased tiredness or fatigue.    

Why Does Weed Make You Tired?

Many regular cannabis users report tiredness or sleepiness after taking cannabinoid compounds such as delta-8, THC, or CBD. Although cannabis is not categorized as a proper sedative, its relaxing effects can remove sleep-depriving roadblocks such as pain and anxiety. Essentially, the dosage and the type of CBD product will be the most significant factors contributing to excessive tiredness or fatigue. 

Finding the Correct Dosage

While lower-dose cannabis products often activate feelings of alertness, serenity, and a relaxed mood, higher dosages can potentially leave a user with extreme sleepiness. For cannabis users experiencing sleeplessness or insomnia, larger dosages may be more beneficial. For those just looking for a jolt of positive energy, smaller doses are recommended. Another contributing factor towards tiredness after a toke is that CBD may often reduce blood pressure at rest and during a stressful situation. Although various factors like weight, metabolism, and tolerance play a part in how your body reacts to CBD, it is widely accepted that 50mg of CBD is enough to make the average user feel drowsy. Because CBD and other cannabis derivatives like THC, HHC, and CBG may affect individuals differently, it’s best to find your correct dosage by taking low amounts and working your way up. 

What Kind of Cannabis Makes You Drowsy? 

Almost any CBD, delta-8, or cannabis product will likely make you feel sleepy once a specific dosage is reached, but certain types of weed can be more likely to do so. Also, weed products like edibles or gummies will affect the brain and the body. They tend to cause tiredness as opposed to more traditional methods of tanking cannabis products like smoking.

Indica Vs. Sativa

While crossbred strains or “hybrids” do exist, nearly all marijuana strains can be broken down into the two categories known as Indica or Sativa. 

Indica – In a general sense, Indica strains are much more common to cause sleepiness or tiredness. This can easily be remembered by committing to memory the phrase, “In-di-ca, In-da-couch.”

Sativa –  Sativa strains are well-known for inciting feelings of alertness, excitement, creativity, and productivity. Sativa strains are typically considered the “daytime” version of cannabis products.

Delta-8 Gummies

I have been researching what I can use naturally for my stress, sleeplessness and arthritis. Came across a company located here in my hometown. I bought Delta 8 gummies, ashwagandha/cbd gummies, apple cider/cbd gummies and the CBD tincture. All of these products have made a huge difference in my life. Delta 8 gummies are now giving me the ability to be able to sleep and also just relax.

With my job as a supervisor, it can become very stressful. So I keep a ashwagandha/cbd gummy handy. In the evening I use my Delta 8 gummy to relax and get some sleep. My grandmother is the one who told me about this company and their products. Thankful she did!
