Cannabinol, also known as CBN, is a valuable cannabinoid. It can be found in trace amounts in the Cannabis plant. However, it is only found in aged Cannabis. Additionally, pharmacologically-relevant quantities are formed as a metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
In simpler terms, CBN occurs when THC is broken down. Most often, this occurs due to oxygenation and UV light exposure. This means that, unlike CBD and other cannabinoids, cannabinol does not naturally exist within the cannabis plant. At least, not in the wild. It occurs only during the aging process.
The Science of Cannabinol
CBN is pretty darn cool! Cannabinol is showing strong therapeutic applications. This is due to the fact that it has strong sedative qualities. The Cannabis testing facility Steep Hill Labs has reported that 2.5mg-5mg of CBN is comparable to that of mild pharmaceutical sedatives. Comparatively, CBN may be a much safer equivalent to dangerous medications like Diazepam.
Though studies into the cannabinoid are limited, the ones that do exist show a variety of positive effects CBN offers. One study’s findings showed that CBN is an appetite stimulant. This proves valuable for medical Cannabis patients who may be undergoing chemotherapy.
Cannabinol and Me
So ya, ok. Now you know the medical mumbo jumbo. But what does Cannabinol do to me? Exactly. How does it affect me and my body? Is it right for me?
When you smoke, dab, vape, or eat Cannabis products, you introduce cannabinoids like CBN into your bloodstream. Then, your blood circulates the CBN through your body and into your brain. Once there, the CBN docks with, or activates, special neurons that begin to produce a range of effects.
Think of CBN like keys that unlock and open certain doors in the body. When those doors are opened, messages can be passed through to other parts. Consequently, your body begins to receive signals to heal or block pain and relieve anxiety, depression, and sleep deprivation
CBN advances are the positive effects it has on those suffering from pain, insomnia, inflammations, or seizures. In addition, the compound also encourages the growth of bone cells. Each of these benefits can be attributed to both CBN and CBD use. Of course, each of these chemicals is worth utilizing in your quest to treat various conditions.
