Getting a restful nights sleep isn’t as easy as it sounds. Whether you are dealing with the stress of the pandemic or simply don’t get more than 4-6 hours of sleep this will undoubtedly effect your ability to function normally. Cannabinol, or CBN, Like CBD, is what’s known as a cannabinoid and is a mildly psychoactive component found in hemp or cannabis.
By a recent count, cannabis has more than 100 different cannabinoids (that’s how many have been identified so far) have attracted a lot of interest for their potential benefits for sleep and other health conditions, including depression and anxiety, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, seizure disorders, different forms of cancer, and chronic pain. CBN has been found to be used effectively as a sleep aid or sedative.
Research in mice has shown that CBN can prolong sleep time. Some research indicates CBN’s sedative effects are amplified when combined with complimenting terpenes known as the Entourage Effect.
According to Steep Hill, a cannabis research and technology company, “2.5mg to 5mg of CBN has the same level of sedation as a mild pharmaceutical sedative, with a relaxed body sensation similar to 5mg to 10mg of diazepam.” You probably know diazepam by its most common brand name, Valium.
Our infatuation with cannabinoid science began intentionally. In our hemp genetics, we’re constantly analyzing the cannabinoid curve, identifying and developing cannabinoids to compliment the anti-inflammatory powers of CBD, and the sleep inducing properties of cannabidiol (CBN).
