Researchers discovered that theendocannabinoid systemplays a role in maintaining certain body functions, such as mood, appetite, sleep, and regulatingcircadian rhythms. Within the endocannabinoid system is a network of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. The two primary receptors identified are CB1 and CB2.
Cannabinoids attach to these cells and have various effects. As far as how they may affectsleep, some research indicates that the cannabinoid CBD may interact with specific receptors, potentially affecting thesleep/wake cycle.
