What is CBN?
CBN and CBD operate differently within the body. CBN binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors, a trait shared with THC, except CBN does not have the same level of intoxicating effects. CBD does not bind either CB1 or CB2 receptors but instead seems to alter the way in which other cannabinoids bind those receptors. So together these two cannabinoids can work synergistically to activate different receptors and produce different neurotransmissions and subsequently different effects than a high CBD extract, CBD isolate, or CBN isolate product.
Anecdotal evidence suggests CBN is exceptional for calming, night-time relief. Due to the extended government prohibition against cannabis, the formal studies supporting these results are lacking, but this oil is commonly used by individuals who find typical high CBD extracts just aren’t enough. CBN Oil can also be added to THC therapies to elevate its effects.
It’s important to note that cannabinoids can have profoundly different effects on different people, so there is no guarantee that just because CBD products didn’t work for you that this product will. Also, some people find CBN to be slightly intoxicating, while others do not feel any intoxication.
