While not as well-known as other cannabinoids, cannabinol is a very promising product from hemp plants. With the lack of intoxicating side effects and the potential health benefits of this cannabinoid, cannabinol is worth looking into to see if it’s the right product for you!
What Is Cannabinol?
Cannabinol (CBN) is one of the many chemical compounds you can find in cannabis plants, like CBD. However, CBN is different from other cannabinoids that are being used for medical benefits. First, CBN can only be found in cannabis plants, not hemp plants. This is because CBN is produced from CBN as it ages. Due to the way CBN is developed in the plant, it’s one of the rarer cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants.
CBN is still in the early stages of research, but the early results are showing that CBN oil can be beneficial in a variety of health areas. Due to the wide range of potential uses, it’s worth considering whether CBN oil is a product you should begin using!
Benefits of CBN Oil
CBN oil is being considered a support for a wide range of health concerns. To see if this is a potential product for you to use, check out some of the most common potential benefits of using CBN.
Probably the most common reason people choose to use CBN oil over other cannabinoids is the potential ability to help you sleep. It’s important to note that the scientific proof behind this possibility is dated and very limited, but many people claim it has helped their sleep tremendously. More research needs to be done to determine if CBN truly does help as a sleep aid, but the potential is definitely there!
There is research to show that CBN has potential pain-relieving abilities because of its ability to affect certain neurons in your brain. Specifically, there’s a potential benefit for people who have chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. While CBN can’t replace other medical treatments, it has the potential to be a great added treatment to assist in lowering pain levels.
Another potential benefit of CBN is for those with chronic inflammation. Research has shown the potential for lowered inflammation levels when CBN oil is used as a treatment. This can mean potential relief for people who are currently suffering from conditions such as arthritis.
How to Use CBN
With the understanding of what CBN is and its potential benefits, it’s time to learn how to use the product properly. Fortunately, there are a few different delivery methods of CBN and different ways you can use it, so you’re sure to find one that works best for you.
CBN oils are essentially oils infused with CBN. Usually, you’ll find that they are also infused with another cannabinoid, such as CBD because this can help improve the potential benefits of both cannabinoids. CBN oils can be a versatile product for CBN consumption because they can be taken in a variety of ways.
The most traditional way to use a CBN oil is taking it sublingually. This means you place the oil under your tongue and allow it to sit for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. The longer you let the oil sit, the more CBN you’re able to absorb directly into your bloodstream quickly. The benefit of a sublingual approach is that it tends to be the best way to experience quick results.
You can also add your CBN oil into food or drink, creating an edible effect. This means that while it will likely take longer for you to experience the effects of the CBN this way versus sublingually, you’re also more likely to experience the effects for a longer amount of time before they wear off. This is also considered a good option if you don’t like the flavor of the oil, but you like its effects.
Finally, you can apply CBN oil topically for location-specific relief. This is a good option for those using CBN for inflammation such as arthritis. You can apply the oil onto your skin on its own, but it may prove easier to do if you infuse the oil into a cream or lotion, then apply that mixture.
Tinctures are a similar concept to oils but include different elements. Specifically, a CBN tincture is alcohol-based rather than oil-based. This can allow CBN tinctures to have a longer shelf life than oils do but can come with a less pleasant taste.
Tinctures are best for using sublingually, and you do this the same way that you would with CBN oils. Simply put the dose of CBN under your tongue and allow it to sit there for 30 seconds before you swallow. CBN tinctures can’t be applied topically like oils can, which is important to remember.
If you prefer the idea of swallowing a pill instead of a liquid, consider CBN capsules. The effects of these are very similar to the oils and tinctures, but they are enclosed into a plant-based capsule for you to swallow easily. This makes them less messy but may also cause them to take longer to become effective.
