According to the CDC, adults need seven or more hours of sleep a night for optimal health and well-being. If you rolled your eyes around your head at that one, you’re likely one of 50-70 million adults that has some kind of sleep disorder.
What is the CBN Cannabinoid?
Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid—a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. There are over 113 known cannabinoids, some of which have some pretty impressive and useful effects, which is why we want to help you get to know cannabinoids better.
Awareness of cannabinoids has only just left the gate. Cannabinoid science is relatively new, and the powers that be are finally comprehending the plethora of impacts it could have on health and medicine. CBN is one of those cannabinoids that’s been sitting by quietly while the effects of CBD and THC pave the way for knowledge and advocacy. Even though it was the first cannabinoid to be identified, CBN’s obscurity was probably due to its relatively low occurrence in the cannabis plant compared to CBD and THC.
CBN is unique because it doesn’t take up residence in the cannabis plant like most other cannabinoids. It’s a metabolite of THC. Put simply, it’s what THC degrades into when exposed to air, time and heat.
CBN, Full Spectrum, and the Entourage Effect
When you think CBN, think full spectrum or the entourage effect. Why? Because CBN works best in concert with CBD and other cannabinoids. Full spectrum CBD includes other cannabinoids (THC, CBG, CBN, etc.) and beneficial plant nutrients like terpenes and cannaflavins. Put it this way, if CBD is carrying a damn fine tune, the other cannabinoids are joining in to make it a full piece orchestra.
This describes the entourage effect: the synergistic manner in which cannabinoids and phytonutrients work together to enhance their effects. The Hemp Haus recommends full spectrum or broad spectrum (sans the THC) cannabinoids in the form and concentration that will work best for your issue.
