Any discussion around hemp or cannabis usually revolves around CBD and THC. But these aren’t the only cannabinoids produced by the plant. There are minor cannabinoids like CBN that are effective and offer a wide range of benefits. If you’ve heard about CBN but do not know much about it, read more:
1. CBN Can Be a Potent Antibacterial
Researchers have tested CBN on MRSA bacteria strains that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. They have found that CBN works effectively on these strains in lab settings, creating a possible likelihood that it could be used in the future to fight infections that antibiotics cannot heal.
2. On Its Own CBN Isn’t Necessarily Sedative
Studies show that CBN on its own does not make you sleepy. But when combined with CBD, it creates a soothing effect that helps induce sleep. At Sleepy Bear, our trademarked formula combines specific ratios of CBD, CBN, and melatonin to create CBN gummies that help people fall asleep quickly and stay asleep for longer.
3. CBN Is Not Psychoactive
While some researchers suggest CBN is mildly psychoactive, some others claim otherwise. Even if CBN were psychoactive, this could be offset by combining it with CBD. And that is why Sleepy Bear edible CBN gummies are combined with CBD and melatonin to offer a sedative effect without any side effects.
4. CBN Isn’t Illegal
It is a common misconception that CBN is illegal because it is derived from THC. However, CBN can also be extracted from hemp. In the United States, CBN products are not illegal if the THC content is not more than 0.03%.
5. You Don’t Have to Smoke Cannabis to Get Its Benefits
Although there are people who buy marijuana and leave it in an open place, allowing the THC to degrade into CBN, this isn’t necessary or even legal in most parts of the United States. At Sleepy Bear, we offer CBN gummies to induce a natural sleep cycle and improve sleep quality.
