Video 18B Physiological Activation

VIDEO: Are These (mostly) Legal Drugs Helping or Hindering Your Sleep? — Optimizing Sleep Part 9

This is my 2nd sleep video on Physiological Activation (PA), which is the 2nd of the 3 major causes of non-clinical sleep problems (I’ve already covered Circadian Rhythm Disruption and will soon have videos on the last one, Cognitive Overactivation).

You may recall from my last email that PA refers to when our brain and body are too revved up to sleep. When our sympathetic nervous system (think stress or fight-flight system) is activated.

In this video, I review how nicotine and caffeine may be increasing your PA and thus hurting your sleep.

I also review how THC and CBD affect our sleep, for good and bad. I also review my experience with both THC and CBD and their effect on my sleep.
