This is a Discussion post from a student. All I need to do is to give a response base on this post.
The only dreams I ever remember are the ones that involve a lot of people in my personal life but with different personalities, or doing something weird that they haven’t done in person. So I’d wake up and tell them “guess what I dreamt about today” and it’s always a “what do you think I am?” haha. The only theme I can identify is just things out the norm. Then the dreams where I want to yell but I can’t so I end up yelling in my sleep. I use to google my dreams and it would always be something cool like “you a fighting a mental battle” which is funny because I’m an indecisive person. I don’t believe dreams mean anything though. Some researchers say eating sweets before bed can cause nightmares (Kadel, 2019). In order to remember my dreams I should probably get a decent amount of sleep first.
I don’t know much about cannabis other than it’s starting to be incorporated into hair and skin products now. Some people have a prescription for cannabis to help with their anxiety. CBD is the chemical in cannabis sativa plant, what we know as marijuana. CBD is what people are extracting and incorporating into products, it is also used for weight loss and detox (CBD tea). Already knowing these two benefits can make one wonder what else can it do? I do believe the earth gives us everything we need to survive, and it can be deemed beneficial in numerous ways. If it can help people with skin, weight, diseases, why not experiment on it? It doesn’t do any more harm than alcohol does.
