CBN (short for Cannabinol) it’s one of the active cannabinoids available in the (hemp) plant. It is far less abundant than it’s cannabinoid counterparts such as CBD, making it one of the “rare” cannabinoids. CBN has been getting noticed by consumers for it’s distinct ability to promote better, deeper nights sleep but it’s benefits may reach beyond just that. In this post, we explore the many benefits of CBN, and why this unique cannabinoid may be working so well for sleep, pain, anxiety, anti-inflammatory effects, and so much more!
A Natural Solution
The research into the therapeutic benefits of CBN is still preliminary, but we can already see from user feedback some of the ways CBN is already helping people. CBN works with your body in the most natural way, because it supports your endocannabinoid system. Those new to taking cannabinol are probably wondering what benefits it has. It is important to remember that each person will have their own unique response when it comes to supplementing cannabinoids, but these are some of the benefits many have already experienced:
CBN Sleep Benefits
Natural sleep relief is a hot topic these days, as less and less Americans are able to get on a regular 8-hours a night schedule. The CDC reports that 1 in 3 adults don’t get enough sleep. This is where cannabinoids like CBN come in. Anecdotal feedback has resulted in CBN gaining the reputation of being the ‘sleepy’ cannabinoid.
A good sleep aid is gentle on your body and mind. Sleep aids that “knock you out” or leave you feeling groggy in the morning are less than ideal. CBN lulls a tired mind and body to sleep by working with your body’s natural response system. Feedback from those using cannabinol for sleep tells us that it is a natural and effective tool for falling asleep and staying asleep.
Patricia L. recently told us this in regards to taking CBN due to the pandemic stressors, “I struggled to fall asleep and stay asleep, leaving me exhausted the next day.” Patricia continues, “I began taking CBN and it’s helped me get back on my sleep schedule. When I take it, I fall asleep at a decent hour and stay asleep throughout the night.” Learn more about CBN for Sleep.
CBN Pain Relief Benefits
In addition to sleep, CBN may also have potential as a pain reliever. In our recent article “The Science Behind the Endocannabinoid System” we explore the research that shows how cannabinoids work in the body. That research indicates that CBN has pain-relieving capabilities in the body with how it influences the activity of neurons that are sensitive to your body’s perception of pain.
User feedback definitely supports this hypothesis and is leading the discussion for further studies to better understand how CBN is working in the body.
CBN is Anti-Inflammatory
Cannabinoids can be efficient anti-inflammatory agents, or used to treat a number of inflammatory ailments. CBN, for example, was described as a potential treatment for certain inflammatory conditions as revealed in a 2009 study. Inflammatory conditions occur when the body’s response to discomfort is in excess. “Bad” inflammation over time can ignite a long list of disorders: arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, blindness, cancer, diabetes. Cannabinoids help to regulate the endocannabinoid system, which can help to modulate your body’s inflammatory response.
CBN for Anxiety Relief
Diagnosed disorders related to mood such as anxiety and depression have risen significantly in the 2000’s. A reported 40 million adults in the US are afflicted with a mood disorder, leading many to seek relief. Anxiety is usually treated with pharmaceutical drugs that can often have nasty side effects. For those who are seeking a more natural relief, cannabinoids may prove to be the answer. One study suggests that through the interaction with the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids can help ease the mind and aid in the relief from mood disorders such as anxiety.
The Many Benefits of CBN!
These are just a few of the more popular potential benefits CBN may have for you. Beyond these, we are seeing early feedback that reveals CBN as a possible antibiotic, appetite stimulant, anti-convulsant, bone healing and growth or even used for glaucoma therapy. Only time and more experience with cannabinol will reveal more of its therapeutic potential.
