08 Dec What is CBN?
CBN was the first cannabinoid successfully isolated from resin by British researchers in 1869. In 1993 CBN was the first cannabinoid to have its chemical structure illuminated. The naturally accruing chemical compound CBN is now being explored and isolated to help provide relief from insomnia.
What is CBN?
CBN occurs when certain cannabinoids degrade, either from oxidation, or prolonged storage, especially at high temperatures. The level of CBD can increase during decarboxylation which is exposure to really high heat. During a plants harvest the levels of CBN can be very high and naturally rise during the curing and drying process.
How effective is CBN?
CBN maintains about 1/4 of its potency relative to other cannabinoids that degrade over time. CBN can have sedative properties and anticonvulsant properties. Just like the majority of cannabinoids found in hemp, CBN has shown significant anti-inflammatory properties.
As more uses for CBN and other cannabinoids are overlooked, people are looking for an alternative way to find relief. The naturally accruing chemical compound CBN is now being explored and isolated to help provide a way to find relief from insomnia.
