Will CBN Make Me Sleepy?
One of the biggest concerns about CBN is that it provides strong sedative effects. This concept was derived based on a few older studies conducted on humans and random anecdotal evidence. The problem is, it’s not backed by much science. There have been studies that have attributed this sedative effect to CBN, but the scientific community is still unsure as it could have been the combination of Cannabinol and THC and possibly other cannabinoids as well. Terpenes such as myrcene and caryophyllene (commonly found in hemp plants) can also contribute to this “sleepy” effect.
What Are The Possible Health Benefits of CBN?
Legally, we cannot claim nor insinuate that any cannabinoid/hemp-derived product has any medical value whatsoever. Therefore, to lawfully and adequately answer this question, we advise that you go to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website and do a search for “Cannabinol.” You will find a handful of medical studies available to learn more.
How Does CBN Work?
Cannabinol works within our bodies by communicating and working directly with our bodies very intricate and vital internal management system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS’s primary purpose is to promote total body homeostasis by helping transcribe the messages sent from our cells to the brain. This is something CBD works so well at accomplishing.
Once CBN enters the body, it binds with cannabinoid receptors known as CB1 receptors & CB2 receptors.
These receptors then take these messages to the nucleus of our cells. The nucleus reads these messages and then sends a command to the brain informing it of what it needs to do to fix the internal issue at hand; this is the beauty of man and nature working together in harmony.
To think that phytocannabinoids (nature providing plant-derived cannabinoids) are literally designed and match perfectly with receptor sites throughout our body. It’s a beautiful thing.
Do CBN products get you high?
Perhaps one of the most challenging questions surrounding CBN right now because there is not a definitive answer out there. The test results from one study claim that CBN is non-psychoactive, while another study states that it has “very mild psychoactive effects.” Grey areas do not provide black and white answers. Therefore, our recommendation is to be aware of the vague possibility of feeling a little woozy after consumption and taking all the necessary safety precautions.
Try not to fret too much as the actual chance of getting high from CBN or feeling any psychotropic effects is a gigantic “most likely not.”
Our Cannabidiol Life staff have all tried our CBN products, and not a single team member reported any THC psychotropic effects. If you take in moderation and follow the product instructions on the label, you’ll be just fine. Always consult with a medical professional for their approval.
Does CBN Help Sleep?
There is substantial anecdotal evidence backing up CBN’s use as a sedative. Many individuals use CBN to help them fall and stay asleep.
What Are the Effects of CBN?
Research shows CBN acts as an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, pain relief, anti-insomnia, and anti-convulsive agent in the body. It may also increase appetite without the psychotropic effects.
What Is the Difference Between CBD, CBG, and CBN?
While CBN is the most widely known cannabis sleep aid, CBD is a natural analgesic that can, in some cases, be just as effective. CBG has been linked to reducing discomforts within the body.
