Cannabinol (CBN) was the first cannabinoid to be identified and isolated from the cannabis plant in 1899 long before the discovery of THC or CBD. One of more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, CBN has grown in popularity lately as more customers claim its benefits for sleep. CBN is often used for its potential relaxing qualities and sedative effects when combined with THC. Like all cannabinoids, its effect is generated from the interactions between our endocannabinoid system and its receptors. CBN binds to both endocannabinoid and GABA receptors in the body, neurotransmitters that are crucial to the body’s natural sleep cycle. When THC is combined with CBN and other cannabinoids, effects and benefits are amplified.
