Cannabinol (CBN)

Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis that is produced through the degradation of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). As cannabis ages or is exposed to oxygen and light, THC gradually converts into CBN.

CBN is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the euphoric “high” typically associated with THC. Instead, CBN is often associated with sedative effects. Some research suggests that CBN may have potential therapeutic properties, including:

  1. Sedation: CBN has been reported to have mild sedative effects, potentially making it useful for promoting sleep and relaxation.
  2. Pain Relief: Some studies suggest that CBN may have analgesic (pain-relieving) properties, although further research is needed to fully understand its mechanisms of action and efficacy.
  3. Appetite Stimulation: Like THC, CBN may also stimulate appetite, which could be beneficial for individuals experiencing appetite loss due to medical conditions or treatments such as chemotherapy.
