This episode of the Know Your Dose podcast is all about sleep! The show starts out highlighting the importance of sleep for optimal health, and the pressure society places on individuals to sacrifice it. When it comes time to share personal experiences, Thomas and Derek talk about using cannabis to ease their minds before bed, while Nadeem prefers to go without. This led to a discussion around what cannabis actually does while we sleep, the differences between THC and CBD for sleep, and where terpenes fit into the equation. In the latter half of the podcast, Derek does a deep dive into the link between the endocannabinoid system and our circadian rhythm, followed by a debate between Nadeem and Thomas on the importance of sleep timing. The episode comes to close with several tips and tricks for easing the mind and body into a perfect night’s sleep.
