CBN, or cannabinol, is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is produced when THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is exposed to oxygen and light, which causes it to break down into CBN over time. Unlike THC, CBN is non-intoxicating, which means it does not produce the "high" associated with marijuana use.
CBN has been found to have potential health benefits, including its ability to aid in sleep. Research suggests that CBN may have sedative effects, which could make it useful for people who have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. It is thought to work by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate sleep, mood, and other bodily functions.
One study conducted in 1975 found that CBN had a more potent sedative effect than THC when given to rats. However, more recent research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBN on human sleep. Currently, CBN is available in some products marketed as sleep aids, such as CBN-infused tinctures, gummies, and capsules.
It's worth noting that while CBN may help with sleep, it is not a cure for sleep disorders or a replacement for other treatments. It's always best to consult with a healthcare provider before trying any new supplement or treatment for sleep.
