Many new applications of cannabis cannabinoids have emerged in recent years. Until relatively recently the vast majority of varieties contained very high levels of THC and low levels of the other components.

Everything changed with the arrival of CBD-rich cannabis genetics, which opened the door to the rest of the plant’s medicinal compounds. Nowadays we can enjoy strains with high levels of THC, CBD, CBG and THCV, and soon we will have available varieties with CBN, CBC, CBDV and other cannabinoids.


👾 What is CBN?



CBN or Cannabinol is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis and hemp. It is found in very small amounts in many strains, but after the success of other cannabinoids it has attracted great interest.

This compound does not get you high by itself, but like CBD, THCV or terpenes, CBN has the ability to modulate the psychotropic effect of THC. But the most important thing is its therapeutic power, which has aroused great interest in the international scientific community for its medicinal qualities.

Cannabinol is produced by the degradation of THC, especially by the oxidation caused by the exposure of cannabis to light and oxygen.

🎬 CBN Properties


CBN is a very effective medicine that can help improve the lives of many people. Among its many qualities are the following ones:

  1. Narcotic, one study has shown that 5 mg of CBN is more helpful for sleep than 10 mg of Diazepam.
  2. Analgesic, very effective in relieving certain types of pain.
  3. Stimulates the appetite, so it can be useful for people receiving chemotherapy.
  4. Reduces intraocular pressure, perfect for glaucoma patients.
  5. Improves skin used as a topical in cases such as MRSA or Psoriasis.
  6. Soothing, very effective for treating anxiety or stress.
  7. It helps to regenerate bone tissue by stimulating the grouping of stem cells in the marrow.
  8. Anti-inflammatory, very useful in conjunction with CBD in burn cases.
  9. Anticonvulsant, effective in cases of epilepsy or other diseases.

🧐 CBN Benefits


The most interesting thing about taking CBN is that it does not produce side effects like most drugs available on the market. When you take CBN oil or capsules to sleep, you wake up the next day with a clear head and the feeling of having rested, not like when you take opiates and the next day you have some mental breakdown or feeling of tiredness.


⚠️ CBN-rich varieties


Any genetics can contain Cannabinol because, as we have seen before, this cannabinoid is formed by the oxidation of THC. It is not uncommon to find moderately high levels of this component in weed with long curing times, and there are strains that generate CBN alive, although it does not usually reach 1%.

Some examples of plants that have CBN in fresh form are these:


🔥 High CBN Products


In some countries products containing Cannabinol are succeeding, especially in the USA. The purest CBN extracts sold are isolate and distillate, at 98% and 78% of concentration respectively.

There are many ways to use this compound, the most widely sold product is CBN oil, which is usually offered in concentrations ranging from 125 mg to 1200 mg. Capsules, edibles or refill cartridges for vaporization are also quite successful.

📖 Conclusion


Cannabinol is a fairly unknown cannabinoid yet, but we think that in the future it may be as important as others. Stay tuned for the next interesting news and we’ll tell you about them in Pevgrow. Do us a favor and share this post, thanks.
