What is CBN - Cannabinol


Canabinol (CBN) is one of many active components found in cannabis called cannabinoids. It has many health benefits and works well in combination with other cannabinoids like CBD and THC.


CBN is mildly psychoactive, but won’t cause you to feel "high" like with THC. This is because CBN is what happens when THC breaks down. CBN has benefits on its own but may work best when combined with other cannabinoids like CBD or THC. 

Research Shows CBN May Help With:

Pain  -  One study suggests that CBD and CBN may provide relief for chronic pain in conditions like temporomandibular disorders and fibromyalgia based on the responses from rats. In the study, CBD and CBN had the best results when used together instead of separately.

Inflammation  -  Cannabinoids CBN, CBD and THC all have the ability to help ease inflammation based on multiple studies.

Neuroprotection  -  The onset of neuron disorder amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was delayed in this study. Other studies found that CBN has neuroprotective properties.

Appetite stimulation  -  One study showed that CBN increased feeding. The same study also found that CBD decreased overall food consumption.

Glaucoma  -  One study states that “CBN promotes neuroprotection, abrogates changes in ECM protein, and normalizes the IOP levels in the eye. Therefore, our observations in the present study indicate a therapeutic potential for CBN in the treatment of glaucoma.”
