Cannabinol, also widely popular as CBN, is a compound or a cannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Just like CBD, CBN is also one of the 100 cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis family.
However, CBN has a unique characteristic of its own. And that is because of the way it is formed. Like the way it is found naturally, CBN can also be created via synthetic extraction processes.
Both CBD and CBN tend to react with the CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system of the human body.
CBD and CBN share similar characteristic features- both of them are non-psychoactive, unlike THC. But, both of these compounds differ in the way they react. Although these compounds react with the same receptors, they produce different effects.
Another distinguishable characteristic happens to be the popularity of CBN. CBD, as we all know, is immensely popular across the world for its various medicinal and therapeutic properties. But CBN has not been in the light so much because not much research and study has been conducted that can reveal its benefits, effects, and other features. But, it is also to be noted, that CBN is slowly coming into the light due to its various potential health benefits, pain-relieving properties, and sleep management.
Now that you have understood about CBN, let us move on to one of the most common inquiries- ‘What does CBN do?’
So, let’s find out from the following details about the various effects or benefits that CBN has to offer-
Although studies and research are still ongoing, it has been suggested that CBN has been found to possess therapeutic properties for pain alleviation. CBN has been shown to cure chronic pain in areas like joints, nerves, and jaw muscles. It also is equally effective against a condition called ‘fibromyalgia’- where the person concerned experiences pain all across his/ her body.
Glaucoma is a condition where a patient suffers partial or complete visual loss, causing blindness. This happens because the optic nerve of the eye gets damaged. What happens is, there is a very high eye pressure build-up which causes the optic nerve to collapse, thereby causing blindness. The only way to cure this is to lower the pressure that is being built up. Research has shown that applying CBN to retina cells results in cell survival when they are exposed to high amounts of pressure. Therefore, the lowered cell pressure results in avoiding extreme circumstances like blindness. Also, CBN has proven to exceed the performances of CBD and THC in such cases.
Another very important advantage associated with CBN usage is that it has been shown to possess neuroprotective properties and abilities. How does that happen? Well, as mentioned earlier, CBN helps in cell protection and survival of the optical system. It also happens to show the same properties when exposed to the nervous system in our body. It helps to protect the cells and structures of the nervous system by radically reducing and preventing the natural death of cells.
Research has also revealed CBN’s benefits in treating certain skin disorders. It is highly advantageous against a rare skin disease which is medically known as ‘Epidermolysis Bullosa’. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a dermal condition that causes blisters in the skin frequently and very easily. CBN acts well on open wounds as well as normal skin and helps to heal the wounds without any further delays.

CBN and CBD are the two compounds out of the 100 cannabinoids extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant that does not contain THC and hence have no psychoactivity.
As the name suggests, CBN oil is an oil form of the compound that is used for many therapeutical purposes.

No, CBN does not make you high, because it does not contain any kind of THC- the main psychoactive element responsible for the psychoactivity.
Usually, after usage, CBN stays for about 2 to 5 days in our system. But that is not the exact figure as this depends on many factors such as metabolism rates, the amount of CBN consumed, frequency, etc.
