CBN, or cannabinol, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that is formed through the degradation of THC. Unlike THC, CBN is non-psychoactive.
CBN is found in relatively low concentrations in most strains of cannabis, and is typically extracted using specialized methods. It can be consumed in a variety of forms, including oils, capsules, and topicals.
Research on CBN suggest that it may have potential therapeutic benefits. CBN has been found to have sedative effects, making it potentially useful in treating sleep disorders such as insomnia. It may also have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, and may be effective in treating conditions such as glaucoma and certain types of cancer.
CBN is typically not found in large enough quantities in cannabis to have a significant effect on its own, but may work in conjunction with other cannabinoids to produce therapeutic benefits.
