    As the title says instead of putting me to sleep like most people weed actually tends to keep me awake. I usually can't fall asleep until my high completely ends around 4 hours after smoking. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Some varieties of marijuana tend to make you high-energy and awake. These are pure Sativas or Sativa hybrids. Indicas tend to lock your butt to the couch and put you to sleep. I find that most commercially available marijuana is Indica hybrid with heavy Indica characteristics.

    Do you find that all marijuana keeps you awake or just certain batches? Are you a new smoker or have you been at it for a while?

    All the reefer I've ever smoked made me kinda tired, but there are strains that give you energy. As long as its giving you a good high it's all good.

    I've been smoking since the summer, and pretty regularly since december. It's been the same for all the weed I've smoked so far, and I've had a decent amount of different strains.

    hah I don't think so. But sometimes as I'm crashing I'll pass out, and then after I sober up I wake back up, like fully awake. That's what really sucks.. It's not too much of a problem, I just make sure I smoke at least 4 hours before I go to bed, and I'm a night owl so thats not too difficult.

    I have more of a 2 hour window. If I'm high in bed, my thoughts are crusin' thru my brain...makes it hard to fall alseep. If I'm coming down off of the high, sleep comes rather quickly.

    If I'm still baked I can't fall asleep, thinking too much. However, once I start to come down from the peek I can fall asleep real easy.

    Why would you want to fall asleep right after smoking? That seems like a waste..

    But I usually fall asleep when I'm coming down, even if its just a nap.

    I never try to sleep until at least an hour has passed since I smoked. That way, I'm usually not high anymore, but coming down. I sleep like a baby....

    I can sleep right after smoking, as long as I remember to fall asleep...

    Yea so I just smoked a lot this weekend and slept after like an hour or so. I think maybe it has a lot more to do with how sleepy I actually am. I have a lot of trouble sleeping normally so I think maybe the weed just doesn't help me that much

    I totally know how you're feelin. Weed generally keeps me awake more than it makes me tired. I love mary jane, but ive learned i cant smoke if i need to get to sleep. but then again i cant sleep with a tv on either...could be just me

    If im just a little high, i think alot and it keeps me awake. If im really high, i just pass out.

    It happens to me a lot depending on the bud. Some strains make me fall asleep when i smoke it (rarely happens) other strains dont let me sleep till my high is gone. Other strains i feel wide awake when i do it and u cant feel when the high is over which is good because your not lazy on your come down.

    I thought I would revive this thread by saying that it puts me to sleep, however, it keeps my boyfriend up, we usually don't smoke before bed...I find it to be somewhat wasteful.

    Freedom_User ....Is really high

    ...Are you smoking more of a Sativa based plant or what?

    If you want sleep, I'd recommend a Indica. :D
