Everything You Need to Know About CBN At a Glance
CBN, a minor cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant, is gaining attention for its potential health benefits and therapeutic properties. It is commonly found in aged or oxidized cannabis products. Studies suggest that CBN may have sleep-inducing and pain-relieving effects, as it interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system.
Incorporating CBN into your wellness routine, through CBD products like gummies or oil, could potentially aid in pain management and address sleep issues.
CBN was first identified back in 1896, making it one of the first cannabinoids to be isolated. In the 1940s, researchers began studying CBN's potential sedative and sleep-enhancing effects. Over time, scientists learned that CBN is produced when THC degrades.
By the 1990s, CBN's abilities to reduce pain and inflammation were recognized. Recently, improved extraction has made pure CBN widely available. As of 2022, over 120 different cannabinoids have been identified, but CBN remains one of the most promising for therapeutic applications.
Ongoing research continues to uncover new medical benefits of CBN, like reducing anxiety, stimulating appetite, and neuroprotection. The future is bright for this versatile cannabinoid as both an effective supplement and valuable component of the entourage effect.
Demystifying CBN Oils: A Deep Dive
CBN oil, derived from the hemp plant, is a concentrated form of CBN. It is often mixed with a carrier oil, similar to CBD oil, for easy administration. This oil is known for its potential therapeutic effects, such as promoting sleep and relaxation. Whether you prefer oral consumption or topical application, CBN oil, just like CBD oils, can be used to achieve the desired effects.
However, it is important to follow recommended dosages and seek medical advice if necessary.
The CBN Oil Manufacturing Process
Creating CBN oil involves a meticulous extraction process that initiates with the conversion of THC to CBN through a natural aging process. As THC gets exposed to light and oxygen over time, it transforms into CBN, a process that's critical to obtaining the base ingredient for CBN oil. Post this transformation, the extraction begins:
1. Initial Extraction: The primary extraction can be done using either solvent extraction methods employing substances like ethanol or butane, or via CO2 extraction. The latter is recognized for its safety and efficacy, ensuring that no residual solvents remain in the end product. At Slumber, CO2 extraction is the preferred method, aligning with the industry's best practices to guarantee a safe and effective product.
2. Purification: Following extraction, purification steps such as winterization are carried out. Winterization involves mixing the raw oil with ethanol and freezing it to segregate undesired components like fats and waxes. The mix is then filtered, and the ethanol is evaporated, leaving behind a more concentrated cannabinoid extract. Slumber adheres to this standard purification procedure to ensure the integrity and quality of the CBN extract.
3. Distillation: The final refinement occurs through distillation, where heat is applied to vaporize cannabinoids, which are then collected in a concentrated form. This phase aids in increasing the CBN concentration further, ensuring a high-quality product ready for formulation into CBN oil.
Each of these stages is crucial in adhering to industry standards and regulations, ensuring the production of high-quality CBN oil that's ready for various wellness applications.
How CBN Extraction Differs from CBD
Though the extraction processes for CBN and CBD share similarities, there are key distinctions rooted in the nature of these two cannabinoids and their presence in the cannabis plant:
CBN: Derived from the aging and oxidation of THC, typically found in aged cannabis.
CBD: Extracted from hemp plants bred to be high in CBD and low in THC, without the need for an aging process.
Both CBN and CBD can be extracted using solvent or CO2 extraction methods. However, the yields for CBD are generally higher due to its abundant presence in hemp, unlike CBN which requires the aging of THC-rich cannabis. Slumber utilizes the CO2 extraction method for both CBN and CBD to ensure maximum safety and efficacy.
Purification and Distillation:
The steps involved in purification and distillation are relatively similar for both CBN and CBD, aiming to remove unwanted compounds and further concentrate the cannabinoids. Slumber follows these standard processes to ensure the purity and concentration of the cannabinoids in their products.
The distinct origins and abundance of CBN and CBD in the cannabis plant contribute to the differences in their extraction processes. While both processes aim to achieve a pure and concentrated form of the cannabinoids, the preliminary steps leading to the extraction stage vary, highlighting the unique nature of CBN and CBD extraction.
Now, having understood the extraction process, let's delve deeper into the science of how CBN interacts with our body's endocannabinoid system to produce its effects.
Wholesale Opportunities with Slumber CBN
CBN is gaining attention and traction in the cannabis industry. As more consumers understand the benefits and differences between THC, CBD and CBN, this “newer” endocannabinoid is not far behind in becoming a popular choice in natural, holistic health. Since CBN does not produce an intoxicating effect, those who don’t want to feel the high that comes with THC can still experience some of the many benefits of the cannabis plant. CBN is the answer for many consumers when it comes to sleeping better, supporting the immune system, stimulating appetite, and more.

Why Purchase Wholesale CBN?
CBN is quite challenging to source based on the limited access to it and the production processes involved. Currently, most CBN available is extracted from crude cannabis oil and isolated through chromatography along with CBD, THC, and CBC. Most crude oil can only contain up to 5-10% CBN even with CBN potent strains, making the compound extremely expensive. Because of this, those who can produce it in large enough quantities to sell are already running a large cannabis manufacturing and processing operation. For those who aren’t equipped in this way, it is unsustainable and requires an expensive production process that doesn’t always yield consistent extraction amounts or consistent quality.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Our CBN is Different?
Slumber has developed a unique way of converting Delta-8 to CBN that dramatically decreases the average cost of CBN while increasing accessibility. We perform a chemical process on CBD Isolate that begins with CBD Crude. It is then converted into CBD Distillate, and another conversion gets us to CBD Isolate. A catalyst or solvent is then used in conjunction with moderate heat to convert Delta-8 into CBN. It is much more efficient and cost-effective, allowing it to be sold at a more affordable price than the conversion method mentioned above.
Does Slumber has propietary blends?
Slumber has also developed proprietary terpene blends containing linalool, known for its relaxing properties, and beta-caryophyllene, known for its pain-relieving properties. We use this in our formulations, along with keto-friendly certified Organic MCT carrier oil, to deliver our premium CBN. Unlike other brands that promote CBN sleep aids, our signature formulation does not contain any THC or Melatonin.
