Can CBD Hemp Oil Improve Sleep?
What is the Endocannabinoid System, ECS?
To learn more about cannabis and improved sleep we need to explore our built in "endocannabinoid system" that contributes to the regulation of sleep.
According to wikipedia.org here is the definition of the ECS:
"The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system.... CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues, and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), anandamide, as well as its mimetic phytocannabinoid, THC......The endocannabinoid system has been studied using genetic and pharmacological methods. These studies have revealed that cannabinoids act as neuromodulators for a variety of processes including motor learning, appetite,and pain sensation, among other cognitive and physical processes.

5. Engage in stress deducing activity: meditation, listening to binaural beats (alpha wave inducing sounds and beats).
6. Increase Omega 3 fatty acid consumption: It has been linked to upregulation of CB1 and CB2 receptors as well as increased levels of endocannabinoid system enzymes. Foods high in Omega 3 fatty acids are: hemp seed, hemp oil, flax seed, chia seed, fish and eggs.
7. Decrease unhealthy negative dietary habits. Increase healthy foods such as, high omega 3 foods, fresh fruits and vegetables to bring back vital phytonutrients into the cells.
