What Hops herb ls:

Can't sleep? Fill a pillow with a bunch of hops strobili (the fruiting cones that follow the yellowish or greenish flowers) and rest your head. That cure for insomnia is almost as traditional as using hops to make beer. The plant—a close relative of stinging nettle and the Cannabis genus, which gives us marijuana—is native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It's always been used to soothe and settle. Some thought it worked too well. In fifteenth- and sixteenth-century England, it was banned for inducing not only sedation but also sadness. Only in the seventeenth century did hops become a common ingredient in English beer.

Hops have been used to brew beer since Roman times. Highly valued for their medicinal properties, hops have sedative, soporific, diuretic and antibacterial effects. Hops also relieve muscle spasm and act to improve digestion.
