What Is Cannabinol (CBN) And Does It Help People Sleep?

Cannabinol, or CBN, is a cannabinoid that is gaining in popularity. For those that don’t know, the cannabis plant is made up of dozens of cannabinoids, with the two most popular ones being THC and CBD.

Each cannabinoid has its own characteristics and properties and scientists are just now beginning to learn about a lot of them, including CBN. CBN is often referred to as a weaker version of THC and seems to be created as cannabis ages and THC starts to break down.

CBN is being included as an ingredient in a growing number of cannabis products, especially products geared towards helping people sleep. For instance, some gummies have a 2 to 1 ratio, meaning that for every two milligrams of THC there is a matching one milligram of CBN.

As with all cannabis products, results will vary, but if you need help sleeping you should look for products that have CBN in them. It’s anecdotal, but a lot of patients are touting the benefits of CBN as a sleep aid right now, so give it a try and see if it works for you.

But before you do, always make sure to take into consideration your tolerance level, the quality of the product that you are consuming, and the amount of cannabinoids that you are consuming. Below is a video with more information about CBN via The Higher Things Club’s channel on YouTube:
