CBN, or cannabinol, is a cannabinoid like CBD, THC and others, except it’s not a major cannabinoid, meaning there is not as much CBN in the hemp plant as there is, say, CBD.
Why are people seeking out CBN specifically? Well, it’s because of the properties that are unique to this compound. The main property for which CBN is known is its potentially sedating potential.
A lot of people are finding that CBN helps them relax better than any other compound can, and that it’s great for taking before bedtime in order to feel calm enough to get a good night’s sleep. It’s worth noting that these properties seem to be both psychological and physical, which is great for physical tension.
The endocannabinoid system is the bodily system that accumulates cannabinoids like CBD and utilizes them for various purposes.
The endocannabinoid system was only discovered in the 1990s, and the research regarding it was used to determine whether or not cannabis plants are actually medicinally useful.
Since this discovery, we have learned more and more about this fascinating system, which has a lot to do with the fact that the medical industry is just beginning to take cannabis seriously.
If it weren’t for the discovery of the endocannabinoid system, we may not have a legal CBD market as well as medical marijuana throughout the country.
The endocannabinoid system helps the body maintain homeostasis. Homeostasis is a state in which all of our bodily processes and systems are working together harmoniously so that we can maintain maximum well-being.
