Another One...CBN

By now, CBD is earning more acceptance and acknowledgement from people all over the world for the many wondrous health benefits that it has to offer.

Like CBD, another naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant is CBN, perhaps not as widely known. CBN is similar to CBD in the fact that is is not psychoactive and offers its share of benefits.

While CBN does not have psychoactive properties, it is considered a by-product of THC. For example, when THC is exposed to heat and light it begins to break down into CBN. This is what happens when a plant begins to oxidize. Knowledge on this process and how CBN forms can guide cultivators on how to obtain this particular compound.

As far as CBN's benefits, it is most known for being a sleep aid although it has proven to have anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsant properties as well.

The cannabis plant contains more than 100 compounds; knowing each of their characteristics can help lead us to natural wellness remedies specific to our needs.
