Insomnia From Marijuana Withdrawal?

Question by Liberal Idiot: insomnia from marijuana withdrawal?
It’s been over a month now since I quit smoking marijuana(I was a daily user for 4 years) and I was wondering how long it takes for the insomnia to go away. I have been taking melatonin pills every night and they don’t always work any advice so I don’t relapse?
Ukranian you are wrong. Marijuana withdrawal is real do some research.

Answer by Cornholio
After a month, you certainly aren’t having ‘withdrawal’ symptoms. You might consider that your marijuana use was treating your insomnia (that is a very common medicinal use of the plant), not causing it in its absence. You might be taking too much melatonin which can CAUSE insomnia. Melatonin isn’t like a traditional supplement – it’s a hormone. More is not better. It also isn’t a sleep inducer, but a body-clock regulator instead. Most adults shouldn’t be taking more than 1 mg, and should not take it indefinitely.
