CBN Distillate or Cannabinol is a Cannabinoid, much like THC, that is naturally produced by the Marijuana plant. This highly refined CBN extract is from the THC-A compound.
The compound needs exposure to heat and light. Because this is a natural process, high levels of CBN are present in aged hemp flower. It also means that it is impossible to create a “high CBN” strain of Marijuana through simple genetics.
People thought that CBN was an intoxicating component of cannabis when first isolated in the 1800s. THC has been identified as the Cannabinoid that carries the stoned effect.
CBN Distillate does not contain THC. Most users will find that this distillate will not get them high but rather it acts much like CBD. CBN acts on the body's CB1 receptors making the effects potentially similar to those of THC but far milder.
CBN Distillate has a very mellow and sedated effect on the user, especially when combined with THC. In recent studies, the compound could be good for both anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsant properties.
This distillate is ideal for those suffering from Rheumatoid (or other forms of) arthritis or Epilepsy.
Because CBN could help regulate the body's immune system it could help manage pain and treat disorders such as Glaucoma.
CBN distillate benefits
CBN can stimulate appetite in many users, making it a top option for those looking to combat eating disorders as well.
One of the benefits of CBN Distillate is its ability to help relax the nervous system and help users fall asleep. While users of CBD commonly report feelings of alertness.
Those who use CBN felt more sedated and relaxed. CBN may have the same effect as 10mg of some sleep aids but without the groggy side effects!
When used as a sleep aid, CBN can not only help the user fall asleep but also help them stay asleep for longer periods of time.
This soothing cannabinol compound alone or alongside CBD (or even THC) could promote relaxation. When used with THC, CBN highly reduces the feelings of anxiety that many people feel.
