Hemp contains over a hundred cannabinoids, these plant compounds hold the key to our endocannabinoid system to maintain homeostasis and provide us with many wellness benefits.
Out of all of the cannabinoids in hemp, Cannabinol, or CBN stands out! This cannabinoid has sedative effects that promote sleep. CBN is present in small amounts in hemp and cannabis plants. Some hypothesize it may be the tiny amounts of CBN in hemp that make you feel relaxed. Evidence suggests that this hemp compound may be responsible for sedative effects, stimulating appetite, and enhancing the effect of CBD oil.

How does CBN work?
CBN interacts with CB1 receptors, similar to how THC does. When we talk about the two significant cannabinoids, THC and CBD, we often mention how THC causes psychoactive effects, while CBD does not. CBN is known to have sleepy effects.
Where does CBN come from?
CBN develops naturally as a result of THC degradation that can happen when cannabis or hemp flowers have been heated or exposed to oxygen. Aged and oxidized hemp and cannabis flowers contain higher levels of CBN. Our CBN products are derived from Pure Hemp, just like our CBD. In order to extract a significant amount of CBN, it takes a lot of plant material!
It may take a bit more hemp to make it, however, the powerful effects of this cannabinoid hold the solution to a better night sleep.
What CBN research has revealed?
Researchers are intrigued by CBN and are actively studying the effects. Thus far, all indications show that CBN has the potential to help with sleep problems and other health conditions. Researchers are continuing to investigate, as much more may be beneficial about this specific cannabinoid.
Research with mice has shown that CBN can prolong sleep time. Other reports indicate CBN’s sedative effects are amplified when combined with THC, even in the small amounts in our full spectrum extract. CBN contributes to sedation via the entourage effect, having other cannabinoids and terpenes present in our products enhance CBN’s overall effectiveness.
Early evidence of how CBN works with receptors in the body supports future studies. Studies have led scientists to believe that CBN may be an effective appetite stimulant, enhance the immune system response, support injury recovery, and support sleep quality. Nothing has been proven, however, research shows positive results and evidence that this cannabinoid has a lot of potential.
