I personally use medical marijuana to help me sleep, as it is a natural solution in the face of all the synthetic drugs that I am now on. I just started prednisone (60mg a day) and am realizing the effect it will have on me, so I am not sure if the marijuana will be sufficient, but feel it will actually be a good solution for me. Fortunately I live in a state where I am a legal medical marijuana patient with a Dr.s recommendation. And for those who dont consider smoking very medicinal there are great vaporizer options out there that just activate the THC, and does not burn the plant material.
