Daylight Saving Time and Weed: How to Manage Sleep Disruptions with Cannabis
Did you know that you can use weed to manage sleep disruptions caused by Daylight Saving Time? This year, Daylight Saving Time ends on November 7th, 2021. At 2:00am, clocks get set back an hour, giving you an extra hour of sleep that morning.
Changing your clock in either direction can mess with your circadian rhythm and your sleep schedule. As we discussed in Can Weed Help You Sleep At Night, cannabis is a safe and effective sleep aid that has been used for thousands of years.
Daylight Saving Time and Weed
While many people think Daylight Saving Time is about farming, it is actually about energy conservation. The reasoning is that if it is light out for a longer time, there is less time that people have to use energy to light their house.
Studies have shown that the transition out of Daylight Saving Time is associated with an increase in car accidents and on-site work incidents. Last year, the American Academy of Sleep released a statement saying: “Permanent, year-round time is the best choice to most closely match our circadian rhythm.”
Research has shown that cannabis can act as a zeitgeber, or something that entrains your circadian rhythm. That means you can mitigate disruptions to your sleep schedule with purposeful cannabis consumption.
