All the men in my family have sleep apnea.
It means you are restless at night when sleeping. There is something up with my breathing that doesn’t allow me to enter REM sleep. All the men in my family then got a sleep study and were given a CPAP. It helps things considerably. It is a face mask that blows air into my nostrils to keep me breathing clear and clean. It helps soothe me to sleep and stay asleep. I sleep deeper, better and I feel great in the morning. Sometimes bringing the CPAP isn’t feasible though. When I do a quick overnight at a friend’s place I hate lugging a heavy machine. It isn’t just a face mask. It has a battery, a carrier that requires distilled water and I need an outlet. When traveling to European destinations I then need to bring an adapter and the right outlet. It is a huge pain. I did some research online on what I could do to sleep better but carry less equipment. I found that smoking medical weed before bed is a good idea. I got the medical cannabis card and gave it a try. It worked so well! It was really nice not wearing a face mask either. It was significantly less work and I enjoyed the smoking process. I am doing some experimenting but I think medical cannabis works better than the CPAP. If that is the case, I am going to convert all the men in my family to it.
