CBN is the abbreviation for the cannabinoid "Cannabinol." Cannabinol, or CBN, can be found in both the Hemp and Marijuana plants. In both of these plants, only a small amount can be found, close to 1%. CBN is created when tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) breaks down. The process of turning THC into CBN occurs after a long period. The degradation can be increased by exposing the hemp plant to heat and oxygen. Although CBN has some psychoactive properties, it is about 10% as potent as THC. CBN is generally used to support a better night's rest. It is recommended that you do not operate heavy machinery after taking more than 2mg of CBN. CBN is said to assist with a restful night without feeling drowsy in the morning, unlike other nighttime medicines. CBN may also assist with physical discomfort and inflammation.
