FORBES HEALTH: What is CBN?
“Less studied and utilized than CBD and THC, CBN shows promise in addressing certain ailments. Learn more about this rarer cannabinoid and its potential benefits and side effects.
What Is CBN?
Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant. It can also be produced synthetically.
CBN forms when THC degrades due to exposure to heat, air and/or light. “This is why higher levels of CBN can be found in aged, dry cannabis,” says Eric Adams, CEO, president and director of InMed Pharmaceuticals, a manufacturer and developer of rare cannabinoids. However, CBN isn’t known to cause the intoxicating psychoactive effects associated with THC.
CBD vs. CBN: What’s the Difference?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most popular cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa plants. Although similar to CBN, CBD isn’t derived directly from THC, but rather exists independently within the plants.
CBD has been studied more extensively in clinical settings than CBN, and it’s more popular in mainstream retail products. Research supports several therapeutic benefits of CBD, but CBN can’t quite compete with that list just yet.”
