Sleep Impacts Everyone

When you don’t have a restful night, it can have an effect on your mood, health, family and even your job. So, whether you are struggling with insomnia or you are simply looking to improve your sleep, I have tools, tips and resources designed to help you.

It is an exciting time for sleep research and sleep medicine—literally every month we learn something new that can affect you and how you sleep. Therefore, I blog about it, lecture on it, tweet it or do a podcast. My mission is to teach everyone how to sleep better and the latest information on sleep disorders, including how they’re diagnosed and the treatment options available.

I have also been working with companies to help employees sleep better, to perform better at work and home, and to lead more productive lives. Why? It’s because sleep is the third pillar of health along with diet and exercise.

What is it?

Hemp Extract oil is derived from the whole hemp plant. Hemp Extract oil is a natural botanical concentrate that consists of compounds called cannabinoids. There are more than 85 cannabinoids so far that have been identified in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, our hemp extract is non-psychotropic, and therefore doesn’t cause a euphoric high.

Pure hemp extract oil can be consumed directly as a nutritional supplement.

Over the years, great advances in hemp extract oil have led to what are now dozens of different types of hemp extract products.
