What is CBN?
CBN is the scientific abbreviation for cannabinol. Identified long before CBD, CBN is recognized as one of the many minor cannabinoids that contribute to hemp's therapeutic potential.
Where does CBN come from?
Like CBD, CBN comes from industrial hemp. Known for their high CBD content, hemp plants also produce small amounts of more than 113 individual cannabinoids, including CBN. While natural plant enzymes, heat, and ultraviolet light convert cannabigerolic acid to CBG, CBD, and THC, CBN is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid resulting from the natural breakdown of THC, a process that occurs over time from oxygenation and decomposition.
What are the health benefits of CBN?
Although CBN works within your ECS like CBD and CBG, helping to regulate many crucial functions within your body, anecdotal evidence suggests CBN has the potential to promote enhanced sleep since it works directly with your CB1 receptors, which are known to influence sleep.
How does CBN work?
After decades of study devoted to the effects of hemp and its therapeutic potential, researchers eventually discovered a complex network of messengers and receptors that regulate nearly every essential process in your body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Cannabinoids, such as CBN, function as the messengers.
The natural cannabinoids made in your body are called endocannabinoids. Plant-based cannabinoids, like CBN and CBD, mimic the effects of the endocannabinoids produced in your body to help relay urgent messages to the ECS receptors. When illness, injury, stress, or other factors increase the demand for ECS messengers, plant-based cannabinoids such as CBN can help restore internal balance.
