Cannabinoids are the building blocks of cannabis strains. The effects of cannabis are derived from the combination of cannabinoids present in a given type of weed.
THC is the most well-known and widely used of these cannabinoids, but CBD or cannabidiol has seen surges in its recent usage rates. Both of these cannabinoids have cause-specific and different effects. But there are a variety of cannabinoids that researchers and growers can isolate for different purposes. One such cannabinoid that is now being leveraged is CBN or cannabinol.
There is a tiny amount of CBN present in any strain but it increases in amount as the THC molecules age; then they degenerate into CBN. When this transformation occurs, so do the effects of cannabis when used. Weed with a high CBN level has a much less euphoric effect and more of a sedative one. Cannabinol doesn't get you stoned, but it will make you quite comfy and sleepy.
What are the benefits of CBN?
CBN is known for providing a good solution for sleep problems. People who can not sleep well or who sleep very restlessly can benefit greatly from CBN.
