Cbn products are available in a variety of forms and can be administered in several different ways. But, let’s start at the beginning. What exactly is CBN and how is it beneficial to people?
Cannabinol (CBN) can be found in trace amounts in cannabis. It is a cannabinoid and is predominantly found in cannabis that is stored or aged. CBN is derived from the cannabis plant’s main chemical ingredient known as tetrahydrocannabinol.
While research is still ongoing into the benefits and effects of CBN, it seems as though current findings are very promising, as indicated by this study which states, that both CBD and CBN have a very good safety profile.
In a 1975 study on five male participants, it was found that CBN could potentially act as a sedative. Which makes it an excellent aid for those suffering from sleep disorders. Furthermore, in a 2019 study on rats, it was determined that CBN could potentially assist candidates who experienced pain and/or inflammation. In addition to this, it was found in a 2005 study conducted on rats that use of CBN could delay conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
As stated above, there seems to be several benefits associated with the regular use of CBN products. The key question now is: in which form are CBN products available?
CBN may be taken as an oil by either rubbing it into the affected and inflamed area, or orally as a tincture. Other methods include oils, lotions, edibles, capsules, vapes, as well as gummies.
Candidates should be advised that it is very important to consult with a doctor before taking CBN or CBD products as a supplement, complimentary, or alternative form of medication. Doctors are able to prescribe a dosage as well as inform the patient if the CBD products will interact with any other form of medication that is being taken.
