Sleep Paralysis: Side Effects of Using Marijuana to Assist with Sleeping

Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist and professor at Stanford University who has studied the correlation between sleep paralysis and marijuana use. He has found that regular marijuana use can increase the likelihood of experiencing sleep paralysis, a condition characterized by temporary paralysis and vivid hallucinations during the transition between wakefulness and sleep. Huberman suggests that marijuana may disrupt the natural sleep-wake cycle, leading to changes in the brain that can trigger sleep paralysis. However, more research is needed to fully understand the relationship between marijuana use and sleep paralysis.
