What Is CBN?
Cannabinol, or CBN, is a mildly psychoactive component of cannabis generated from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, just like the highly psychoactive THC (THC-A). When THC-A oxidizes, CBN is produced.
CBN can be used as a sedative or sleep aid. This cannabinoid has also been proven to help regulate the immune system and alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with a variety of illnesses, including arthritis and Crohn’s disease. It has been shown in studies to help lower glaucoma-related intraocular eye pressure. Because CBN is an anticonvulsant, it can help people with seizure disorders like epilepsy.
About CBN Products
CBN products are now treated more like marijuana than CBD, which means you can only buy CBN in locations where recreational marijuana is allowed, or with a prescription from a licensed medical expert. CBN is only available through legal, adult-use dispensaries, unlike CBD, which is widely available at huge businesses like Amazon.
Taking a CBN Tincture?
What is a CBN tincture? A CBN tincture is cannabinol (CBN) in liquid form, commonly referred to as “CBN Oil.” Some CBN tincture products contain CBD and CBN in equal amounts.
How Do I Take CBN Tincture
CBN Tinctures can be taken orally or sublingually. Swallowing the Tincture causes it to be absorbed by the stomach, which then sends it to the liver to be processed and delivered into the bloodstream. Applying a Tincture right under the tongue is known as sublingual usage. The Tincture can be absorbed straight into the bloodstream due to the high concentration of blood vessels there. The ultimate consequence is a speedier onset but a shorter duration than oral use.
