What is Cannabinol? (CBN)
As the wellness industry shifts to embrace more holistic solutions, consumers are increasingly eager to learn about the many natural compounds in the hemp plant. For example, you have undoubtedly heard about CBD (short for cannabidiol), the all-natural ingredient available in our edibles, smokeables, and tinctures. CBD is a compound derived from hemp, and it is one of over 100 compounds called cannabinoids within the leaves, flowers, and stems of the plant. So while you may know CBD, you could be asking yourself what is cannabinol or CBN?
Not to be confused with CBD, CBN is short for cannabinol, and it is another unique compound derived from hemp. Today, we will discuss this lesser-known powerhouse compound that will soon be making headlines, and you’ll see why CBN is a great addition to any lifestyle!
What Is CBN?
Like CBD, CBN is a cannabinoid that is expertly extracted from plants in the cannabis family. People often confuse hemp and marijuana because both plants are in the cannabis family. However, they are two different strains with different genetic profiles, so they are not identical. In the United States, derivatives of marijuana are not federally legal. Derivatives of hemp, however, are. CBN, cannabinol, is one of the hemp-derived compounds that has been making an appearance in wellness products lately, as it is the molecular result of aged, degraded THC. As THC oxidizes, it becomes far less psychoactive, but the beneficial elements remain present. Some may stigmatize CBN for its connection to THC, but the compound has earned its accolades from consumers who have experienced the many benefits it can offer.
You may not realize this, but when you purchase a high-quality CBD product, the primary ingredient is likely a phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract, which features several hemp-derived compounds, including CBN. It is a noteworthy cannabinoid because it can interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), producing several lifestyle benefits naturally. The ECS is one of the primary systems in the body that works to regulate many of the body’s everyday functions. Hemp-derived cannabinoids promote a healthy and balanced ECS.
Is CBN Legal?
Like many new plant-derived wellness innovations, consumers question whether CBN is legally safe to possess and consume. According to The Farm Bill of 2018, as long as it is derived from hemp and contains no more than 0.3% THC, CBN and other derivatives are entirely legal for purchase and consumption in the United States at a federal level. For due diligence, always check the most updated laws for your specific state to be sure that you are complying with state law as well.
Even though THC is the ingredient known to produce euphoric side effects, 0.3% is considered a minuscule amount. This means that a high-quality hemp extract that complies with the law is not considered psychoactive and will not produce uncomfortable mind-altering side effects.
Experience The Entourage Effect
You can find CBN in several popular wellness products offered by The Hemp Doctor, America’s Premier Hemp & CBD dispensary. We offer a wide range of products to fit seamlessly into your lifestyle, including broad-spectrum and full-spectrum hemp products that allow consumers to experience “The Entourage Effect.”
The Entourage Effect is when several potent compounds enter your bloodstream simultaneously, maximizing the overall experience as the ingredients work more effectively when combined. An isolate will not provide this dynamic because isolates consist of only one single ingredient rather than a robust blend. Experts agree that you will receive the most dynamic benefits from products containing a rich blend of CBD, CBG, CBN, and more, and this phenomenon is widely referred to as The Entourage Effect.
