As cannabis legalization begins to sweep through the nation, more and more people are starting to understand and appreciate this magical plant’s therapeutic properties. However, the two most popular cannabinoids are THC and CBD. Even if marijuana isn’t legal in your state, you can easily find CBD products at any gas station, headshop, or even vitamin store. However, THC and CBD are not the only valuable cannabinoids taken from cannabis. Minor cannabinoids such as CBN have been on the rise and have specific medicinal properties?
What is CBN?
CBN is a non-psychoactive compound directly derived from THC. CBN forms once THC ages and oxidizes. It is typically found in high levels in older cannabis. Scientists have been able to extract this compound into CBN products like oils and tinctures to optimize its benefits.
Benefits of CBN
Like its cousins, THC, and CBD, CBN can help relieve pain and inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease, arthritis, and other conditions that cause chronic pain. In addition, CBN is also antibacterial and helps boost the immune system. However, many people use CBN for its sedative effects. Its calming properties make CBN an excellent sleep aid and can be used to treat insomnia and promote healthy sleep patterns.
