Legs, if I had to use raw marijuana, I would take at least a few grams, grind in food processor to be sure each capsule I use has the same THC content, and loosly fill 00 capsules. Take one 2 hours before planned sleep time. You should have at least a mild stoned feeling at 2 hours from dose. If one capsule doesn't help, try 2 capsules the next night, if no better, 4 the next. Each capsule will likely have 300-500mg of ground up marijuana in it.
For me, I need to take enough to feel stoned to get the sleep benefit. I also take another dose about 4 hours after the first dose (along w 50mg gabapentin) to help me sleep the last part of the night.
If you decide it helps, buy a scale ($10-20) on Amazon to more accurately fill capsules. Also, I would buy enough marijuana to last at least several months at one time, grind the whole batch, and keep what I was not currently using in a freezer. All this will help you get consistent sleep from each dose.
