CBN is one of over 100 cannabinoids that exist in the cannabis plant and has a whole list of benefits. Have you heard of or tried CBN?
So, what is CBN and how does it form?
CBN has a long history as it was the first cannabinoid to be identified by scientists. CBN (Cannabinol) is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages.
Unlike other cannabinoids, CBN does not stem directly from cannabigerol (CBG) or cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), but rather is the degraded product of Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9-THC).
As we all start to move beyond CBD and THC and into more whole-plant wellness, the Kush Queen team is committed to keeping you informed and sharing the direct connection our products have to cannabis.
3 Things You Need To Know About CBN
CBN Has Potential to Aid Sleep
We’ve experienced the sedative effects of CBN first hand from Gummies RX Sleep 900mg CBN:CBD but what are others saying?
Dr. Michael Breus, PhD and author of Beauty Sleep writes, “there are indications that CBN is a powerful sedative. Research in mice has shown that CBN can prolong sleep time.” Other research indicates CBN’s sedative effects are amplified when combined with other cannabinoids.
Just like most cannabis-related research, it's relatively early in the process of CBN being studied in-depth.
CBN Can Aid In Body Recovery
“Scientists are working to better understand how the human endocannabinoid system affects the immune system. Cannabinoids, including CBN, are being examined for their possible therapeutic role in treating swelling, irritation, and loss of function,” reports Psychology Today.
Outside of helping us get some of the most incredible sleep we’ve recently experienced, one of the biggest reasons we believe in the routine, daily use of CBD and CBN is to help reduce puffiness throughout the body.
CBN Can Deliver Relief
This cannabinoid has shown to alter the pain signals that are sent to the brain by neurons.
Dr. Breus shares, “research indicates that CBN has analgesic or relieving capabilities in the body. CBN appears to influence the activity of neurons that are sensitive to capsaicin. (Capsaicin, you might know, is found in chili peppers, and an ingredient added to many topical pain relievers.) These capsaicin-sensitive nerves are important to the body’s pain signaling and perception.”
