What is cannabinol?

Cannabinol (CBN) is a compound that is extracted from the hemp plant. It results from the oxidation of THC that leads to its decomposition and conversion into CBN.

With slight mind-altering properties, the compound is more psychoactive than CBD but much less than THC.

However, cannabinol is widely believed to help people suffering from insomnia to treat their sleeping disorders.

When combined with other cannabinoids CBN produces several highly desirable effects. Therefore, CBN is increasingly made a part of different formulations.

How CBN works?

Just like THC, cannabinol connects to B2 receptors in the body’s internal cannabinoid system. It allows cannabinol to alter the pain signals that are sent to the brain by the neurons.

The research also shows that the cannabinoid has the potential to fight off several bacterial infections.

The combination of cannabinol with other cannabinoids produces potent effects due to a process called the entourage effect.

Therefore, you can find a variety of products on the Great CBD Shop that have cannabinol as an ingredient. Now you can enjoy your favorite hemp extracts with convenience.

Great CBD Shop’s Opinion On CBN:

CBN is a very good but one-note C noid. For any sleep or relaxation blend, I consider CBN a must, but outside of those two scenarios, I rarely use CBN.

For any daytime blend, always avoid CBN. Another flaw CBN runs into is not quite lasting all night – even when eaten.

This is where CBNo comes in – with a blend that has both CBN and CBNo, you will get put to sleep by the CBN but KEPT asleep by the CBNo.

Solid, classic, sleepy. Good stuff.
