cbd enthusiasts: cbn is on the rise. here are 3 things you need to know
There are many acronyms involved when it comes to cannabinoids. Understanding the difference between each of them is crucial, yet confusing for those new to the hemp plant. The two most popular cannabinoids that most people know of are CBD and THC. However, there are over 100 cannabinoids isolated from the cannabis plant!
One of the developing cannabinoids we are passionate about is CBN or Cannabinol. Though historically less-popular than prominent compounds THC and CBD, CBN has a promising future in store for all of us who take interest in holistic health.
hang on... what is cbn?
Don’t know? Don’t worry! We’ll break the science down, simply.
CBN shares many similarities with CBD and is a non-psychoactive (high-free) derivative of the cannabis plant. However, unlike CBD, CBN is the by-product of decaying THC. Again, it’s important to note that CBN, despite its origins, will not induce a psychoactive “high”. Below, we lay down 3 things you need to know about this powerful, lesser-known molecule.
#1. cbn as a mighty (yet molecular) sleep aid
Research is currently being conducted on the CBN molecule for its natural sedative effects, and assistance for those who struggle with falling asleep. This effect, given CBN’s origin from aged THC, could potentially carry over many benefits, rewarding those who use THC for sleep, just without the mental high.
#2. cbn as a good team player
Scientifically known as the entourage effect, CBN has the potential to increase the efficacy of other strains and properties of the cannabis plant. This is a synergistic bond between the body’s endocannabinoid system and all of the compounds found in the hemp plant.
A harmonious symphony, if you will.
#3. additional therapeutic benefits for those avoiding thc
CBN is a promising molecule for greater health, offering support for more than just sleep alone. Additional therapeutic effects one may experience with consumption of CBN includes post-inflammatory response support, mild pain relief, healthy-appetite support, and more.
