- CBN vs CBD: what’s the difference?
First things first: CBN is a cannabinoid.
That puts it into the same category as CBD, THC, CBG, CBC, and about a hundred other compounds.
Yet CBN is unique. For one thing, it’s the cannabinoid that virtually every other cannabinoid eventually degrades into. Both CBD and THC form CBN if they’re heated for long enough.
CBN vs CBD: what’s the difference?
Compared to CBD, CBN is more powerful, more relaxing, and more psychoactive. While it won’t get anyone high, CBN does seem to have drowsiness-promoting qualities.
Research by the godfather of cannabinoid research himself, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, explains why. His studies revealed that CBN binds to the endocannabinoid system's CB1 and CB2 receptors. That makes it unlike CBD, which mostly binds to CB2, and unlike THC, which mostly binds to CB1.
Even then, research on CBN remains in its infancy. Clinical trials haven’t yet shown that it does anything for sleep.
Don’t discount CBN too quickly, though. Virtually every known benefit of CBD went through a period where it was yet to be validated by science. Before CBD was even discovered, ancient cultures around the world had been enjoying it (via hemp flower) for thousands of years!
At Pachamama, we expect CBN research to follow a similar path. You don’t have to wait for clinical studies to join the thousands of people who’ve experienced better sleep with CBN so far.
How to use CBN gummies as a sleep aid
Attention, those of you who live a busy lifestyle: Sleep Well could be an ideal sleep aid.
Why? Fun bedtime routines are easier to follow than boring ones...and what’s more fun than eating gummies?
Another upside? CBN gummies digest slower than other CBN products, which means the relaxation they usher in might just let you sleep soundly throughout the entire night.
To time things perfectly, take one to two gummies 1-2 hours before bedtime.
Keep in mind that experiencing CBN-infused success depends on your dosing. Similar to CBD intake, it may take a while to get your ideal dose right. If you’re not experiencing better sleep with one gummy, try one and a half. If that's still not cutting it, take two. We don't recommend taking more than two though.
Ready to make 2021 a good year? Then don’t forget the fundamentals. Trying our new Sleep Well gummies is one of the easiest things you can do to sleep better. And sleeping better is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most actionable things you can do to improve your health.
