CBN is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that results from the degradation of THC. This is because neither the stalks nor non-viable seeds contain meaningful amounts of cannabinoids, CBN squarely falls under the definition of marijuana, and as a result, is a controlled substance.
THC may be a great sleep-inducer but in most states, it’s still illegal and you definitely can’t order it online. In order for CBN to be legally sold in the United States, the product must have less than 0.3% THC. CBN is already a potent sedative.
While both cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) come from the same hemp or cannabis plant, it is in fact the processing of this plant that decides on the levels of CBN produced. The level of CBN in a cannabis bud depends on its age and the amount of light and heat it has been exposed to.
There’s some evidence that it can help treat conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. CBN needs much more human research before conclusions can be drawn about its potential benefits.
CBD, CBN, and CBG are all cannabinoids within the hemp plant. But when consumed, their effects differ. CBN is great to use for sleep as it calms the body down, much like CBD. CBG on the other hand has more of a lively, up beat effect when taken.
CBN as an appetite stimulant.While CBD has appetite-suppressing effects, CBN appears to stimulate the appetite. This may make CBN a therapeutic option to help increase appetite in people who struggle to maintain an appetite because of another illness, such as cancer, or its treatment.
Currently CBN is an expensive cannabinoid due to the fact that it is still much more rare to find and difficult to extract.
CBN can be used effectively as a sleep aid or sedative. This cannabinoid has also been shown to help regulate the immune system and works to relieve the pain and inflammation caused by several conditions, including arthritis and Crohn’s disease.
CBN stands for cannabinol. CBN was the first naturally occurring cannabinoid to be isolated in its pure form back in 1896.
