What is CBN?
Updated: Feb 11
You hear about CBD. It's all over, even in chocolates! You must be aware of two things: From where the product is coming from is one, the second one is that you will get for what you pay. One of the most important factors that determine the quality of CBD that you need to know before you buy CBD oil is to establish where it was grown. Hemp, being a bio-accumulator is known to absorb substances from the soil, air, and water.
CBN is a cannabinoid that occurs from the oxygenation and decomposition of THC. That's why it's most commonly found in aged cannabis plants and almost never on hemp that hasn't flowered.
CBN, (Cannabinol) is one of the many chemical compounds in hemp and cannabis plants. Not to be confused with cannabidiol (CBD) oil.
CBN as CBD oil doesn’t cause the typical “high” associated with cannabis.
CBN- FOR WHAT IS GOOD?
Like many cannabinoids, there are only a few studies that have been performed with CBN. While small in number, they are big on potential results. The following is a list of potential benefits associated with CBN.
ANTI-INSOMNIA CBN remains primarily valued as a potent natural sleep aid. According to an analysis from Steep Hill Labs, 5 mg of CBN is as effective as 10-mg of diazepam, a prominent pharmaceutical sedative.
PAIN RELIEF In addition to its effectiveness as a sleep aid, CBN has recently been identified as a potential painkiller.
ANTI-BACTERIAL CBN is one of several cannabinoids with the potential to fight bacteria. National Library Medicine published that CBN was highly effective and may prove a viable option for reducing methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Cannabinoids can also be effective anti-inflammatories. CBN, though not as widely used for anti-inflammatory purposes as CBD or THC, may have similar abilities to treat a variety of inflammatory ailments. Already in 2009 study on cannabinoids as novel anti-inflammatory drugs, for example, identified CBN as a possible treatment for inflammatory disorders such as allergic asthma. Research has also revealed that CBN can treat glaucoma by reducing inflammation that causes intraocular pressure.
ANTI-CONVULSANT Studies dating back to the 1970s identify CBN as an effective treatment against convulsive illnesses. Similar to CBD and THC, CBN has the potential to reduce seizures and epileptic symptoms. Patients should be warned, however, that CBN’s anti-convulsive properties may be more effective in conjunction with CBD and THC than as an isolated compound.
BONE CELL GROWTH STIMULANT CBN ticks all the usual boxes of a medicinal cannabinoid — pain relief, anti-inflammation, etc. But it may also stimulate bone marrow cell growth. By gathering and modulating stem cells, CBN may be an effective cannabinoid in creating bone tissue and healing bone fractures. Borba Organics proudly offer CBD + CBN HEMP SOFTGEL CAPSULES.
