What is CBN?
CBN (or cannabinol) is produced when the cannabis or hemp plant ages. Enzymes, ultraviolet light and heat produce changes at various stages of the plant’s life to transform CBGA (or cannabigerolic acid) ultimately into the CBN cannabinoid. More precisely, most cannabinoids start off as CBGA in the hemp plant. As the hemp plant matures, enzymes transform the CBGA into CBG (cannabigerol), CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid), and CBCA (cannabichromenic acid). THCA, on being exposed to heat, becomes THC. On being exposed to ultraviolet light, such as from sunlight, THCA transforms into CBNA (cannabinolic acid). This CBNA, when exposed to heat, decarboxylates into CBN (cannabinol).
What is CBN Oil?
CBN Oil refers to cannabinol (CBN) which has been dissolved into a carrier oil as a tincture to improve deliverability. CBN oil can contain other cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes which are natural constituents of the hemp plant. As a product high in cannabinol content, CBN oil provides the effects of CBN, including promoting relaxation and supporting healthy sleep cycles.
What does CBN Oil do?
While CBD and THC has been extensively researched and their mechanisms of action are known to include the CB1 and CB2 cell receptors, CBN hasn’t been the subject of as much study. Cannabinol is known to act on the TRPA-1, TRPV-2, TRPV-3, and TRPV-4 cell receptors. The reported effects of CBN Oil include producing a deep sense of relaxation and support for falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer.
How do I use CBN Oil?
Most CBN oil can be taken as a tincture, placed and held under the tongue. CBNight Water Soluble CBN Oil has been through a proprietary nanotechnology process that increases bioavailability by reducing particle size. CBNight acts faster and more reliably than other CBN oils. Add CBNight to 8 oz of water 30 minutes before bedtime to achieve the best results.
