Cannabinol (CBN)

As one of the top 10 cannabinoids present in plants from the cannabis family, CBN is the latest hot topic in cannabinoid research. When THC is oxidised, the process converts the THC to CBN. Interestingly, CBN was previously thought to be responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis before THC was discovered. It has potential for combatting pain and inflammation, bone health, and treating skin conditions. It could also be effective for inducing sleep when used in combination with CBD. CBN can contribute to the beneficial effects of CBD when present in a broad spectrum or full spectrum extract (see entourage effect).
