What is CBN (Cannabinol)?
Cannabinol (CBN) is a compound secreted by trichomes that offer therapeutic benefits. While CBN is mildly psychoactive, it is considered non-intoxicating. Due to the current laws, there has been a lack of research for minor cannabinoids. What we know is that like most cannabinoids it is fat-soluble. It also has a specific relationship with THC as CBN is a byproduct of THC oxidation.
What Is the Difference Between CBN & CBD?
CBD is commonly the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp. It doesn’t cause consumers to get high and people generally use it for medicinal purposes. CBD produces anxiolytic effects that reduce the hallucinogenic effects of THC. CBD directly acts on the endocannabinoid system to influence anandamide production, which is our body’s natural endocannabinoid.
CBN doesn’t seem to have a direct effect on the endocannabinoid system. Overall, experts believe CBN to reduce the effects of other cannabinoids however, it is unclear how it combines with other minor cannabinoids and plant terpenes. At present, medical researchers have yet to understand the effects of CBN fully. With CBD, there is far more research conducted.
What are the benefits of using CBN?
CBN has been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory helping to reduce swelling by working with specific immune cells. This compound has also been shown to have anti-convulsant and anti-bacterial properties. Lastly, it stimulates the release of peptides from sensory nerves, which helps decrease pain. It is unclear if the pain is being targeted in the body or mind, but it is clear that the CB1 and CB2 receptors are not being targeted.
