Cannabis Research for Sleep Promotion

From Woes to Rest: Unwinding Insomnia with Tradition and Science

Insomnia or insufficient rest is highly prevalent and caused by anxiety and stress. According to the ThaiHealth website, around 19 million Thai adults experience insomnia disorder. Moreover, the World Sleep Society has shown the prevalence of insomnia in up to 45% of the world's population. Insomnia is a threat to their health and quality of life and has many negative effects, including depression, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular diseases. And it also affects the mind and emotions. That’s why we must be aware of it.

Current research demonstrated that cannabis has sleep-promoting effects. Two main cannabinoids, THC and CBD, play an important role. THC binds to CB1 receptors in the central nervous system, leading to a reduction in sleep onset latency and total rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and increasing slow-wave sleep. Both THC and CBD can increase the total sleep time, which may help patients feel sedated or sleepy more easily. However, cannabis users must use it in the correct way and not in excessive quantities.

We are aware of insomnia, which is a crucial problem. Therefore, one of the flagship projects of the company is to develop a modified traditional formula for sleep promotion by combining traditional medicine wisdom and cannabis extract. Currently, we are working closely with a team of Korean traditional doctors. The first prototype has been done and is going to be investigated for its efficacy and safety in an animal model. It is expected to finish in 2024. We hope that this product will bring joy and happiness to people with insomnia.
