How is CBN different
from THC and CBD?
CBN is a byproduct of the degradation of THC and produces no psychoactive effects. This is often one of the main concerns for people who don’t consume THC, but want to explore ways they can benefit from the natural properties of the hemp plant without getting “high.”
CBD is the second-most-abundant cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. CBD has a little bit more in common with CBN, but isn’t known for producing a sleepy, sedative effect. CBD is more commonly used for those trying to relieve physical pain, inflammation, and anxiety.
So when choosing between CBN, CBD, and THC, CBN is thought to be the best choice for a sleep aid.
Are there side effects from taking CBN?
CBN and Slumber CBN products are generally well tolerated and considered safe for adults. There is no THC or psychoactive compound in CBN, so you can be confident that you will not have a “high” like state.
As with any other hemp supplement, there is a chance that it could cause adverse reactions for some people. As with any dietary supplement, consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, have or suspect a medical condition or are taking any medications.
Is CBN legal in the US?
The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act and made it federally legal to grow, sell, and process hemp- so long as it doesn’t exceed 0.3%. THC on a dry weight basis.
