Good evening I have a question after a few decades of shift work I have developed an debilitating insomnia health issue which the doctors are classifying as a major morbidity issue to my health. I refuse to take chemical sleeping tablets after the first week due to them causing other medical problems as well as they make me feel very sick in the morning. This year I have managed to obtain a medical prescription through a local doctor who is specialist in this field, apart from the shocking cost of the medication most nights I am still suffering.
I don't suffer from any mental health and medical issues but did use the devils drink "scotch" to assist for many years "I have been sober for 4 years now" and I am very fit I run most days don't eat junk and any processed foods I have spent some time at the sleep disorder unit where they stated I have a highly active brain activity, my wife said BS to this . Due to covid I am now working part time and my wife has lost her job as well so affording any more tests and paying for any more medical cannabis would be very difficult. That is until I was given an edible which has given instant relief.
I felt calm and relaxed about 15 minutes afterwards and then slept 9 hours straight and woke up very well I did not take it again for the second night but still slept 5 hours which is unheard of for me. My question is why is there such a difference between the two?
