Cannabinoids: Emerging sleep modulator

Low ZXB, Lee XR, Soga T, Goh BH, Alex D, Kumari Y (2023) Cannabinoids: Emerging sleep modulator. Biomed Pharmacother 165:115102. doi: 10.1016/j.biopha.2023.115102 PMID: 37406510

Objective: To review the modulation of sleep by cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system.

Summary: This review article discusses the role of cannabinoids, including endocannabinoids like anandamide and phytocannabinoids like THC and CBD, in regulating the sleep-wake cycle. The authors review evidence that cannabinoids act on areas of the brain involved in promoting sleep, like the ventrolateral preoptic nucleus, and inhibit wake-promoting areas, like the locus coeruleus.
