Abstract: The effects of cannabis extracts on nocturnal sleep, early-morning performance, memory, and sleepiness were studied in 8 healthy volunteers (4 males, 4 females; 21 to 34 years). The study was double-blind and placebo-controlled with a 4-way crossover design. The 4 treatments were placebo, 15 mg Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), 5 mg THC combined with 5 mg cannabidiol (CBD), and 15 mg THC combined with 15 mg CBD. These were formulated in 50:50 ethanol to propylene glycol and administered… 
Effects of acute systemic administration of cannabidiol on sleep-wake cycle in rats
TLDR
The systemic acute administration of CBD appears to increase total sleep time, in addition to increasing sleep latency in the light period of the day of administration.
No Acute Effects of Cannabidiol on the Sleep-Wake Cycle of Healthy Subjects: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study
TLDR
The present findings support the proposal that CBD do not alter normal sleep architecture and address the effects of CBD on the sleep-wake cycle of patient populations as well as in clinical trials with larger samples and chronic use of different doses of CBD.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for chronic insomnia disorder (‘CANSLEEP’ trial): protocol for a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blinded, proof-of-concept trial
TLDR
This proof-of-concept study will evaluate the effects of a single dose of an oral cannabis-based medicine on sleep and daytime function in participants with chronic insomnia disorder and findings will be disseminated in a peer-reviewed open-access journal and at academic conferences.
Cannabidiol-Δ-tetrahydrocannabinol interactions on acute pain and locomotor activity
TLDR
The results suggest that CBD may enhance THC’s antinociceptive and hypolocomotive effects, primarily prolonging THC”s duration of action; however, these effects were small and inconsistent across experiments.
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol in psychosis: A balancing act of the principal phyto-cannabinoids on human brain and behavior?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CBD attenuates THC induced subjective and objective effects relevant to psychosis- but in a dose/ratio dependent manner.

Title: Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol in psychosis: A balancing act of the principal phyto-cannabinoids on human brain and behavior?
TLDR
These novel results demonstrate that CBD attenuates THC induced subjective and objective effects relevant to psychosis- but in a dose/ratio dependent manner, which assumes considerable significance given the increasing global trend of cannabis liberalization and application for medical indications.
Treating insomnia symptoms with medicinal cannabis: a randomized, crossover trial of the efficacy of a cannabinoid medicine compared with placebo
TLDR
Two weeks of nightly sublingual administration of a cannabinoid extract (ZTL-101) is well tolerated and improves insomnia symptoms and sleep quality in individuals with chronic insomnia symptoms.

Cognitive and subjective dose-response effects of acute oral Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in infrequent cannabis users
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oral Δ9-THC impairs episodic memory and learning in a dose-dependent manner whilst sparing perceptual priming and working memory.
Effects of high dosage delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol on sleep patterns in man
TLDR
These are the most marked effects of THC on brain electrical activity demonstrated thus far and since its pattern of effects on sleep appears unique to THC, this drug may prove to be a valuable tool in the elucidation of the pharmacology of sleep.
Cannabidiol interferes with the effects of delta 9 - tetrahydrocannabinol in man.
Delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol and synhexl: Effects on human sleep patterns
TLDR
The results of both types of experiments were consistent in demonstrating increments in Stage 4 sleep and decrements in REM sleep and their relation to the effects of other psychoactive compounds upon sleep patterns are discussed.
Hypnotic activity of melatonin.
TLDR
Melatonin given at 23:30 has no significant clinical effect on nocturnal sleep in healthy individuals and Hypnotic activity of melatonin when given in the early evening (presumably in the absence of endogenous melatonin) is similar to 20 mg temazepam.
Influence of cannabidiol on delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol effects
Experiments investigating the possible interaction of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two major components of marihuana, were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions in a

TLDR
Electroencephalogram, chin electromyogram, and eye movements monitored by the method originated by Dement and Kleitman indicated that δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, 20 mg administered at bedtime decreased the amount of time spent in the REM or paradoxical phase of sleep.
Effects of orally administered delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol in man
TLDR
The etfects of Δ9‐tetrahydrocannabinol administered orally at 2 dose levels were studied in a group of 7 healthy young adult males and caused hyperreflexia and upset postural responses in the absence of visual cues.
A Phase I, Double Blind, Three-Way Crossover Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetic Profile of Cannabis Based Medicine Extract (CBME) Administered Sublingually in Variant Cannabinoid Ratios in Normal Healthy Male Volunteers (GWPK0215)
TLDR
This study employed a double-blind, randomised, three-way crossover study of placebo, High THC and CBD:THC administered sublingually as a liquid spray to determine if there was a correlation between intoxication levels and plasma concentrations of THC and/or its metabolite 11-hydroxy-THC.
