What is CBN?
CBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages. For that reason, it’s usually present in high amounts in older cannabis.
What is CBN used for?
There have been numerous studies showing that CBN could largely assist those with insomnia. Recent studies claim that CBN is possibly the most potent cannabinoid when it comes to relaxation. Research evidence suggests that 5mg of pure CBN can produce the same relaxing effects as 10mg of Valium without the side effects. Although scientists are still on the early stages of analyzing CBN, those living with severe insomnia are excited to learn more.
Studies on CBN have found that it may be a potent antibacterial agent. In lab settings, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. Researchers found it to be a potent antibacterial agent against these resistant strains. Perhaps in the future, we will see CBN being used to fight off bacterial infections that our usual antibiotics can’t heal.
CBN may also be helpful for those suffering from glaucoma. One study on rabbits found that CBN (as well as THC) reduces intraocular pressure—the biggest risk factor for glaucoma. Still, research is in early stages and CBN hasn’t been shown to be superior to other glaucoma medications.
CBN may also be a powerful neuroprotectant. In one rodent study, researchers used CBN as a treatment for ALS and found that it was able to delay the onset of the condition.
In studies, CBN has shown to increase the amount of food that subjects ate, suggesting that it could be an effective appetite stimulant. Since some choose to avoid THC (another well-known appetite stimulant) due to the high that comes along with THC. CBN could potentially offer an alternative for those in need of an appetite stimulant without the high.
CBN may also be a potent anti-inflammatory agent, especially for those living with rheumatoid arthritis. CBN has shown to reduce the pain that comes along with arthritis. While more research is needed, this may be an huge help for those suffering from this extremely painful and debilitating condition.
