Unlike other cannabinoids, CBN does not derive from CBGA but rather through the decarboxylation, or break-down of the most beloved cannabinoid, THC. Similar to THC, CBN encompasses relaxing qualities useful in garnering pain relief. It is said to aid in sleep and insomnia, especially when paired with other cannabinoids and is commonly used as a substitute for THC for those who do not want any psycho-active effects, but rather to use cannabis medicinally. Furthermore, CBN is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, with research proving its ability to soothe skin inflammation and rashes. Due to this property, CBN is found in many topicals that focus on skin rejuvenation and care. As helpful as it is in maintaining skin health, it can also keep your bones strong too! Studies show that CBN activates stem cells that regulate bone growth suggesting effectiveness in healing fractures in bones and providing potential treatment for osteoporosis as well.
