CBN Oil for Sleep

By Trevor Baum June 5, 2022 Wellness

CBN Oil for Sleep • Cannovia CBD - Better Wellness, NaturallyOver 40% of adults in the US report difficulties sleeping, with thousands reaching for over-the-counter sleep aids to help them get a good night’s rest. But, with increasing awareness around more wellness solutions, many are looking for a more natural way to get to sleep and stay asleep.

CBN Oil for Sleep • Cannovia CBD - Better Wellness, NaturallyOne plant, in particular, has captured the attention of natural wellness advocates, and that is the cannabis sativa plant. More well-known hemp compounds like CBD and THC from the plant have been covered extensively, but the minor cannabinoids, such as CBN, are now starting to garner attention from scientists and those struggling with falling asleep and staying asleep.

But what exactly is CBN? Where it’s found, and how is it used?

This article will discuss this little-known cannabinoid, the relationship between CBD, CBN, and other hemp compounds, and why its potential health benefits are drawing the attention of those looking for natural sleep aids and alternative options to resolve their poor sleep health.

What is CBN?CBN Oil for Sleep • Cannovia CBD - Better Wellness, Naturally

Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. It’s formed by the degradation of THC when hemp is exposed to heat, air, or light, which is why higher levels of CBN are found in aged cannabis. While CBN comes from THC, it does not have the intoxicating psychoactive effects associated with THC.

How is CBN oil made?

CBN can be extracted from the hemp biomass with the use of a solvent, typically either CO2 or ethanol. This process separates the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds from the biomass. The extracted product is then placed in an evaporator that uses heat and a vacuum to remove all traces of the solvent.

At Cannovia, we use CO2 extraction rather than ethanol to ensure that our products are healthier and cleaner because there is no chemical residue and no toxicity risk. We carefully blend the extracted CBN with CBD extract and a natural MCT oil to ensure potency and healthful concentrations to make our popular GOODNIGHT CBN and CBD oil drops. This process happens under strictly controlled conditions for consistency and quality. The GOODNIGHT drops also benefit from the addition of natural peppermint oil for the taste, and we ensure that there are no artificial nasties.

CBN vs CBD: How Do They Compare?

Surprisingly, not many cannabis-enthusiasts know that there are 150 other cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. If you can imagine, each and every one of them has its own structure and effect, and each offers a number of potential health benefits.CBN Oil for Sleep • Cannovia CBD - Better Wellness, Naturally

However, most people know about CBD. It is the most abundant cannabis compound and is present in most cannabis products, everything from creams and lotions to gummies and tinctures. CBN, in comparison, is significantly less well-known, and the range of products is also considerably smaller, with CBN found most often in the form of an oil.

The concentration of CBD and CBN found in the hemp plant are also very different. While CBD can often make up 25% of the plant, CBN rarely gets above 0.5%.

CBD and CBN are similar in that neither is psychoactive. Interestingly, the molecular structure of CBN is nearly identical to THC, and, through a process of oxidation, THC becomes CBN in aged cannabis. THC contains four extra hydrogen atoms, and aside from that, their chemical makeup is the same in hemp plants. Over time, with exposure to heat, light, and air, THC loses the hydrogen atoms, and thus the THC level in a sample decreases while the CBN level rises.

Health Benefits of CBN OilCBN Oil for Sleep • Cannovia CBD - Better Wellness, Naturally

There are many reasons users choose to consume hemp-derived cannabinoid products, and experiences differ from person to person. Early research suggests that CBN offers a number of health benefits; however, further research is needed.

As a cannabinoid, CBN interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating sleep. For this reason, CBN is most commonly associated with helping prepare for a good night’s rest.

The Benefits of CBN Combined with CBD
