What is CBN?
CBN stands for cannabinol, which is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is derived from the degradation of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Unlike THC, CBN is non-intoxicating, meaning it doesn’t produce a “high” effect commonly associated with cannabis. The amount of CBN in a cannabis plant increases the longer it is aged.
What are CBN Gummies?
CBN gummies are edible products that contain CBN as one of the active ingredients; however, not all CBN gummies are created equal. You want to be sure that the CBN was “infused” with the gummy during the formulation and baking process vs. CBN that is “sprayed” on gummies for obvious reasons. With gummies that have been sprayed, it is impossible to control the consistency of the dose from piece to piece. This is why you always want to go with infused CBN gummies. And CBN gummies allow for a convenient and tasty way to consume CBN.
Does CBN Help With Sleep?
CBN is often associated with its potential sleep-promoting properties. While research on CBN is still limited compared to other cannabinoids like THC and CBD, some studies suggest that CBN may have sedative effects and could potentially help with sleep. However, it’s important to note that individual experiences may vary, and more research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBN on sleep. Other studies on the potential health benefits of CBN have shown that it may provide neuroprotection and pain reduction, but more studies need to be done before we see it being used as an ingredient in novel therapeutics.
