What is CBN?
There are a full spectrum of various extracts which are produced using hemp. Some of the extracts that you may have heard of include the fatty acids, flavonoids, terpenes and other cannabinoids. Many of these compounds work together to provide us with the benefits that we have found from the cannabis plant. There are over 100 distinct cannabinoids that can be found in the average cannabis plant. One of the cannabinoids that you can find is called CBN and it is one of the first Fido cannabinoids identified in the 19th century. Even though many of the cannabinoids found in cannabis products have similar names, it is important to understand what each property does so that you can determine the best oils and treatments to seek out.
CBN is cannabinol and can regularly be found in many hemp plants as they are growing. The product will naturally begin to produce itself after the plant has been cut and stored over a long period of time. As the plant becomes exposed to sunlight, oxygen and heat CBN production will increase. Hemp based CBN is not intoxicating and it will not produce the psychoactive high that you experience from cannabis use.
CBN and CBD both interact with the endocannabinoid system but in vastly different ways. The receptor sites are different and CBN will affect our body with a number of benefits which can be different than CBD.
CBN reduces inflammation, can help to reduce anxiety and stress, can assist with sleep, to assist with appetite enhancement and assist with fluid regulation in the eyes too.
CBN isolates are widely available in hemp extracts which are dominant with CBN. Choosing a hemp extract which is dominant in these items can make sure that you can enjoy a product with greater ingestible and topical applications.
