What is CBN?

CBN otherwise known as Cannabinol is a non-intoxicating compound that is most commonly known as the cannabinoid that is created when THC ages or when THC-A oxidizes. This cannabinoid is produced when marijuana and hemp plants are exposed over long periods of time to both air and sunlight. This causes the THC to convert to CBN! This cannabinoid is unique as it can bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors within the bodies Endocannabinoid System. but tends to have a higher affinity for CB2. This means that it works synergistically within the body’s immune system to help regulate the immune system as well as the peripheral nervous system.
