Description

Matthew Walker, Ph.D., is a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and serves as the Director of the Center for Human Sleep Science. Formerly, Dr. Walker served as a professor of psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School.

Walker's research examines the impact of sleep on human health and disease. One area of interest focuses on identifying "vulnerability windows" during a person's life that make them more susceptible to amyloid-beta deposition from loss of slow wave sleep and, subsequently, Alzheimer's disease later in life.

Dr. Walker earned his undergraduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Nottingham, UK, and his Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the Medical Research Council, London, UK. He is the author of the New York Times best-selling book Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams.

I have been trying Hemp oil, which has a high content of CBD and no THC. It seems to work quite well, it might be placebo but it's the best placebo I've ever seen. I take it once a week on a day that I can sleep as long as I want, I go to bed earlier. I sleep two hours longer, I almost double my deep sleep, increase my REM in half hour (according to my Huawei band 3 Pro), and fall asleep easier compared with a day with same conditions without the oil. I don't do it more often because I have found no studies to assure me that I won't create any other problems by inducing more sleep this way. Let me know if you know of any study on CBD.
