Cannabinol (CBN) is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid derived from the aging and oxidation of THC, with a growing interest in its potential for inducing sleep and reducing inflammation. Unlike THC, its effects are more sedative than intoxicating, making it appealing for those seeking a natural sleep aid or pain relief without a strong high. Research is in early stages but suggests benefits for sleep disorders and pain management.

How is CBN Used?

Available in oils, edibles, and topicals, CBN products are less common due to its nature as a degradation product of THC, targeting a niche market focused on sleep and relaxation. As the cannabis industry evolves, this cannabinoid exemplifies the broadening interest in cannabinoids beyond CBD and THC, promising new therapeutic options from the cannabis plant.
