Our ongoing series on psychiatry is moving to insomnia today. A bad night's sleep, especially on a consistent basis, can affect nearly every moment of waking life.
Dr. Leigh Vinocur MD, MS sees a lot of patients that complain of insomnia (it's been a rough 2 years). So this episode will focus on the clinical evidence and data around the use of cannabis for insomnia.
While the evidence is small, some research suggests that low doses of THC can help patients get to sleep and stay asleep.
For this conversation, we are joined again by Dr. Tiffany Buckley, PharmD, BCPS, BCPP, an Advanced Practice Psychiatric Pharmacist working with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy Masters in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics (MCST) Program.
