What Is CBN

CBN, or cannabinol, is a cannabinoid that is created when THC oxidizes or degrades over time. It was actually the first cannabinoid to be isolated from the cannabis plant, even before THC.

While CBN does have mild psychoactive effects, it is believed to have about one-quarter of the psychoactive effects of THC.

Research on CBN is still in its beginning stages, but some studies have shown potential benefits. For example, a 2012 animal study found that CBN can increase appetite and food intake, which could be beneficial for those experiencing nausea, cachexia, or loss of appetite due to chemotherapy treatments for cancer.

This study noted that CBN acted as an appetite stimulant without the strong psychotropic effects of THC.

It's important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of CBN and how it interacts with the body and mind.

If you are interested in trying cannabis strains that are high in CBN, here are some options:

1. Bubble Gum

2. Durban Poison

3. Lemon Kush

It is recommended to obtain testing results to understand the exact amount of CBN in the cannabis products you are using.
