Sleep is fundamental to a person's overall well-being. Improving your sleep is therefore a worthwhile goal of mesearch experiments.

A study showed that 51% of people who use recreational cannabis report that it helps with relaxation and sleep. Another study found

Preliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia.

Peyote also appears to have a big impact on some peoples sleep cycle. With cannabis, people typically find it most effective to consume prior to going to bed. Where as, with peyote, they typically find that the improved sleep comes after a long day where a peyote dose had been consumed 12 to 18 hours earlier. Everyone responds differently, so the idea with mesearch is to learn what works best for you my experimenting methodically.

Heart rate monitors are great for measuring changes in your sleep cycle. Sleep experiments are simple: you consume a specific amount of a specific product and then note how it affects your sleep. The heart rate monitor can show you how long you slept. Seeing how low your heart rate gets and for how long is a pretty good metric for how deeply you are sleeping.

Start by establishing a baseline. A baseline just means you can see what your sleep cycle is without cannabis/peyote, and then see how the various products and doses alter your sleep cycle. Purchase a variety of cannabis/peyote products and try them, one at a time, before bed. Start with lower doses and incrementally increase. For example, you may choose to start with 2.5mg of THC before bed. If you find that you tolerated that well, the next night you can try 5mg, and then 7.5mg, and so on.

Over time you can see how the escalating dose is impacting your sleep cycle. Typically, at first, there is a clear pattern where higher doses are correlated with longer deeper sleep. At some point, more is no longer better. And finding that point is helpful to know when planning your cannabis/peyote routine.

As you keep using cannabis/peyote, you build up a tolerance, so it's good to keep retesting, to see how tolerance is affecting your ideal dose. The same methodology can be used to determine if CBD is helping you sleep, and what ratio of THC and CBD is best for you. Note that CBD often seems to require higher doses than THC, so plan your experiments accordingly. If you have high CBD products and high THC products you can mix them to achieve any ratio you want to test.

Different methods of administration like drinks, vapes, soft gels, edibles, and extracts can all be tested. The method of administration has a profound effect on your experience, so testing different options is ideal.

I want to again remind everyone that I am not a doctor, and this is not intended to be medical advice. For those of you who are going to be using peyote and cannabis anyway, I hope that you are inspired to take a more scientific approach. Always talk to your health care professional before attempting any mesearch experiments.
