The cannabis plant contains a plethora of different chemical compounds, two of which are CBD (cannabidiol) and CBN (cannabinol). Unlike the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD and CBN are both non-psychoactive, interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and potentially have healing properties.
At Inflamade, we’ve combined both of these incredible properties together to create our brand new Inflamade Deep Sleep CBD + CBN Gummies - the sleep aid you’ve been searching for.
But why have we chosen both of these compounds? Today, we’re breaking down the benefits and uses of both CBD and CBN as well as the differences between them. Read on to find out more.
What is CBD?
CBD is the most-widely used compound of the two and is found in cannabis and hemp plants. Its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties can be added to everything from beauty products, to food, to the tinctures you find here at Inflamade.
CBD’s uses and properties are believed to include:
- Sleep relief
- Chronic pain relief
- Addiction relief
At Inflamade, once extracted, our products are made with pure CBD, isolated from all other cannabinoids providing a high concentration of CBD per product.
What is CBN?
CBN is less-widely used and this is due to less research being carried out on the compound's benefits and side effects. In recent years, its popularity has continued to grow due to its potential benefits in aiding sleep and alleviating pain.
CBN is known as a weaker version of THC as it is created from the oxidation and decomposition of THC derived from the hemp plant. This less potent form stands at about 25% of the effect of THC and can lead to mild psychoactive reactions when consumed in larger doses.
Due to its similarity to THC, a study in Psychopharmacology stated that the appetite’s of rats increased when they consumed CBN, an effect which is normally found when consuming THC. However, rats who were given CBD experienced a reduction in appetite.
Whilst more research is required to fully understand CBN’s properties, Its uses and benefits are believed to include:
- Sleep relief
- Pain relief
- Neuroprotective Properties
In addition, research shown in Advances in Pharmacology evidenced that CBN can be used as an:
