What is CBN and what is the difference between CBN and CBD?

At the same time that CBD and THC are gaining momentum, an ingredient called CBN is also beginning to attract attention.

CBN is a cannabinoid that works differently from CBD.

In this Blog post, we will introduce what CBN is and why it is attracting so much attention.

What is CBN?

CBN is a cannabinoid produced when THC is exposed to light, oxygen, and temperature.

Although cannabinoids are produced from THC, which has psychotropic effects, they do not cause dependence or a high, and are said to have no harmful effects on the body.

There are more than 100 cannabinoids in total, including CBD and THC.

CBN is one of the very few cannabinoids and is called a rare cannabinoid because of its rarity. It is said that less than 1% of the total amount of CBN is extracted from hemp, making it more expensive than CBD and THC.

What are the benefits of CBN?

CBN has been studied less than CBD and THC, but its currently known effects include sedation, anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory, and sleep-improving effects.

Furthermore, CBN is believed to be more compatible with terpenes than CBD, which may have a stronger effect on the body due to its high entourage effect.

Previous experiments with CBN suggest that it may provide relief from chronic muscle pain disorders such as TMJ and fibromyalgia without euphoric or psychotropic effects.

It has also been reported to provide symptomatic relief from other widespread numbing and painful ailments.

What is the difference between CBN and CBD?

CBD and CBN differ in the way they work in the body.

CBD works directly on serotonin receptors, while CBN works directly on CB1 and CB2 receptors.

THC has high binding to CB1 and is known to bind strongly to CB1 and get us high, while CBN does not bind as strongly as THC and is said to have less than one-tenth the psychotropic effects. CBN is not as strongly bound as THC and has less than one-tenth the psychotropic effect.

This makes CBN a potential substitute for THC in the medical field.


We have introduced CBN.

CBN is a cannabinoid produced when THC is exposed to light, oxygen, and temperature.

It is known as a rare cannabinoid because only a small amount is obtained from whole hemp.

CBN has sedative and anti-inflammatory properties, and it works well with terpenes to provide a stronger effect on our bodies through its entourage effect.

Compared to CBD and THC, there are not many research reports on CBN, but it is one of the cannabinoids that will attract more attention in the future.
