CBN oil – special features, properties and application
CBN.products are one of the most important novelties on the market around the hemp plant. Like CBD, CBN/Cannabinol is a cannabinoid that comes from the hemp plant. It is less known than THC and CBD, but is becoming increasingly popular due to its positive efficacy. Similar to CBD, the effects of CBN oil are said to be able to reduce both psychological and physical ailments. To be fair, we have to tell you that advertising promises, efficacy promises and recommendations about CBN/Cannabinol are not allowed to be made. However, we can guarantee that you will only receive high-quality CBN products from us that have been produced from approved hemp.
The role of the endocannabinoid system in the use of CBN
CBN is a breakdown product of THC and thus a phytocannabinoid that is mainly found in mature hemp plants. In total, there are more than 100 different cannabinoids in hemp, cannabidiol is the most widespread and well-known besides THC. As with all cannabinoids, the effectiveness of CBN can be explained by the endocannabinoid system. Every person has a large number of CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, nervous system and bloodstream.
The use of cannabinoids stimulates the endocannabinoid system and can thus have an impact on well-being. According to various reports, CBN is mainly used against pain and for relaxation.
What can CBN be used for?
Research is still in its infancy and therefore cannabinoids like CBN are not yet a relevant topic in modern medicine. However, many users report an improvement in their mental and physical symptoms. What CBN oils are used for depends entirely on personal needs. Mostly, no mono-products are used anyway, but combined full-spectrum oils. This means that not only cannabinol, but also components such as CBD, CBG or CBC can be included. Here is a small overview regarding the areas of application of CBN oil:
- Pain: There are first studies that prove that CBN can have analgesic influences. The findings are not yet fully developed, so the substances of the hemp plant are not yet prescribed. However, users report that CBN reduces pain. This can be explained by the possible influence of cannabinol on the neurons in the human body.
- Inflammation: Similar to CBD, initial evidence is emerging that CBN may have anti-inflammatory properties. Since cannabinol/CBN interacts with the endocannabinoid system, the immune system can be influenced in this way.
- Antibacterial influences: Various studies are currently examining the use of CBN in bacterial infections. A study from 2008 came to the conclusion that the properties of CBN can have a positive influence on the reduction of bacteria. So far, however, such studies have only been carried out on animals; whether the results can be transferred to humans in the same form requires further investigation.
- CBN in mental illnesses: If the inner balance is disturbed, depression, anxiety, reduced mental strength and many other symptoms can occur. There are first indications from animal experiments with mice that CBN is able to improve the quality of sleep and generally have a calming effect.
How do CBN and CBD differ from each other?
CBN and CBD are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the hemp plant. Unlike classic cannabis (THC), they do not trigger a “high effect”. CBN/cannabinol differs from CBD in the type of effect. The latter interacts directly with the endocannabinoid system, whereas CBN has an influence on the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the body. When used in combination, the two cannabinoids trigger the entourage effect, which results in increased potency.
Can CBN be used together with CBD?
Like CBD, CBN/cannabinol is a cannabinoid that is extracted from hemp. Dissolved in a hemp oil, it is usually used. CBN oil is hardly different from CBD when used, it enters the body in the same way. Fortunately, the two cannabinoids harmonise very well with each other, so users can apply CBN oil together with CBD oil to benefit from the combined effect. The cannabinoid CBN is a natural component of hemp that is only produced by the breakdown of THC in the plant. Therefore, cannabinol is also referred to as a direct breakdown product.
Does CBN make you high?
Although cannabinol is a breakdown product of the psychoactive THC, CBN oils do not make you high. They have no psychoactive effect and are therefore classified as harmless. In Germany, THC is still banned, although it is known that it can have different effects in different areas. You can therefore assume that cannabidiol and cannabinol do not have any psychoactive effects, otherwise they would also be banned in this country.
What side effects can CBN have?
Many users use CBN to relax or to boost their own psyche. When the mental load comes off, you may notice an increased tiredness at first. This is one of the reasons why CBN is also particularly popular for sleep disorders. The mind is not restricted, but you can feel more relaxed and may perceive this as tiredness.
If you use a full-spectrum CBN product that also contains terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids, the effect of the drops can be felt more intensely at the beginning.
General side effects can also occur, but are almost always due to the combination with medications or an overdose at the beginning. There is no classical dosage recommendation. You will find the contents on the bottle, but then you do not know how to use the contents. If you take too much, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.
- Dizziness and lightheadedness
- severe tiredness and the urge to sleep
- Appetite and craving for sweets
Which CBN oil is right for me?
You can find numerous CBN oils on the market and are faced with the question of which one is suitable for you. The effect depends strongly on the concentration of the CBN oil. If your body has no experience with CBD, CBN or any other cannabinoid, you should start with lower concentrations.
Basically, it is important that you pay attention to the quality of your CBN oil rather than the price. To be effective, cannabinoids need to be extracted in a highly complex process. In order to really benefit from all the advantages, CO2 extraction is usually used, which can ensure the best quality. The process is very expensive and needs experts. If the price of a CBD or CBN oil is very low, you should become suspicious.
It is normal for CBN oils to have a certain price, after all they are high quality and organic. Before buying, compare several products to really find the right hemp oil for your purposes. An organic MCT oil is the perfect solution as it contains no herbicides or pesticides and satisfies most customers.
It is also important to distinguish between mono and full spectrum oils. Only if CBN oil also contains terpenes and other cannabinoids can you benefit from the entourage effect.
What do experts say about CBN?
Research on CBN is still in its early stages, with many researchers literally hanging in the air. While they know that organic hemp oil has a number of positive effects and cannabinoids like CBN and CBD can promote sleep, immune system and well-being, they don’t have any finished study results yet. This is one of the reasons why CBN drops cannot yet be officially declared as a food supplement or natural medicine. However, it is assumed that in the future it will be possible to prove in several studies what influence cannabinoid items really have on people. For the time being, all that remains is to go by what satisfied users say.
Conclusion: CBN can increase well-being
Better sleep, focused concentration, less pain – what studies cannot yet prove, users have known for a long time. Whether CBD or CBN, the effectiveness of cannabinoids is proven by users again and again. Since there are hardly any side effects worth mentioning when using CBN, CBD and co., many users are willing to simply try the oil. In order to let others profit from their own success, they then report about it publicly.
