Buyer beware, when searching for a sleep “CBN” enhanced hemp product, you’ll want to look at the COA.  Most sleep CBD products are enhanced with melatonin and other sleep additives to bring about the sedative effect, with less than 2% of CBN - and worse yet, filler full of other oils and low amounts of CBD. 

Cannabinol (CBN) is considered a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid known for its powerful sedative properties. When THC is oxidized, the degradation process converts THC to CBN, which may account for the sedative effect aged cannabis often carries. A 2700 year old grave excavated in China revealed preserved cannabis that contained higher amounts of CBN than any other cannabinoid.

CBN is a byproduct of THC and is typically found in small amounts in most cannabis strains, however, many cannabis based options such as topicals, edibles, capsules, tinctures, vape cartridges, sublingual sprays and more may contain higher levels of this cannabinoid. CBN was also the first cannabinoid to be isolated, previously thought to be responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis before the discovery of THC.

How does CBN work?

CBN shares a very similar chemical composition to THC and thought to primarily bind with the CB2 receptor, but may also interact with the CB1 receptor. CBN acts an agonist to the TRPV2 receptor, a naturally producing protein that regulates several biological systems in the human body. This makes CBN potentially effective for combatting pain and inflammation, bone health, controlling convulsant behavior, lowering blood pressure, and treating skin conditions.

Higher levels of CBN in any cannabis product may provide a particularly effective option for battling insomnia and reducing anxiety. CBN may also be most effective for inducing sleep in combination with other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.

The Research

A 1976 review suggested CBN had sedative effects, particularly when paired with THC. The pain relieving potential of CBN was studied in June 2002. CBN was shown to potentially delay progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in a September 2004 study. An August 2008 study focused on the antibacterial efficacy of CBN, along with other major cannabinoids, as a possible treatment for MRSA. A study from September 2012 examined the possible appetite inducing effects of CBN.
