CBN, also known as cannabinol, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in cannabis that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors and neurotransmitters that plays a role in a number of physiological processes.
CBN is not psychoactive, which means it does not produce a high or altered state of consciousness when it is consumed. It is found in smaller quantities in the cannabis plant compared to THC and CBD, and it is usually only present in trace amounts. However, it can be produced in larger quantities through chemical synthesis or extraction from the cannabis plant.
It is worth noting that the specific levels of CBN in a particular strain can vary, and the specific effects of a strain may not be the same for everyone. The specific ratio of THC to CBD and the presence of other cannabinoids and terpenes can also influence the effects of a strain.
Some products that contain CBN are:
Medipharms – CBN 1:2 Nighttime Formula
BOXHOT – Couch Lock Kush CBN Infused Blunt
WYLD – Real Fruit Elderberry 2:1 CBN Soft Chews
More research is needed to fully understand the potential medicinal benefits and effects of CBN.
