Are you having trouble falling asleep or having difficulty sleeping throughout the night?

Rest easy! Planted Provisioning and our knowledgeable cannabis consultants are here to help.

Most people have trouble sleeping at some point in their lives. Some people may feel refreshed after only six or seven hours of sleep. However, it is recommended, most adults need about eight hours of sleep every night to feel rested.

Sleep difficulty may affect your physical and mental health. Lack of sleep may also cause you to have frequent headaches or trouble concentrating.  Signs of sleeping difficulty may include an inability to focus during the day, frequent headaches, irritability, daytime fatigue, waking up too early, waking up throughout the night or taking several hours to fall asleep.

What is CBN?

Cannabinol, or CBN, is a minimally psychoactive component found in cannabis which, like strongly psychoactive THC, is derived from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THC-A). CBN is created when THC-A oxidizes.

CBN occurs naturally in the cannabis plant as the plant ages. That’s because over time—and when heated or exposed to oxygen—the cannabinoid THC-A converts to CBN.

CBN as a sedative

There are indications that CBN is a powerful sedative. Research in mice has shown that CBN can prolong sleep time. Some research indicates CBN’s sedative effects are amplified (entourage effect) when combined with THC.

CBN Effects and Benefits

How can CBN Improve Your Sleep, Mood, and Health? Research has shown that CBN is effective in the treatment of a variety of symptoms and conditions. CBN can be used effectively as a sleep aid or sedative.

This cannabinoid has also been shown to help regulate the immune system and works to relieve the pain and inflammation caused by several conditions such as Arthritis and Crohn’s disease. Studies show that it can be used to reduce the intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Individuals who suffer from Anxiety may find CBN helpful due to its sedative/calming properties. Additionally, CBN acts as an anticonvulsant, so it is also beneficial to patients suffering from seizure disorders including epilepsy.

Examples of conditions for which CBN is particularly effective in providing symptom relief are listed below:

  • Sleep disorders/Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • Crohn’s disease
