At our Special Launch Event on Saturday, we were thrilled to introduce our new CBN product line. CBN, short for cannabinol, is an all new cannabinoid from Kannaway. Like CBD, CBN can be found in the hemp plant and it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, but the similarities between the two cannabinoids end there. Each interacts with the body differently and offers its own unique natural benefits.
Keep reading to learn more about these two CBN products. We break down the two CBN products and how they’re made, as well as explore their benefits, how they work, and how they differ from, and yet compliment, CBD products.
What are CBN Products?
Kannaway’s new CBN products, Pure CBN Liquid and Pure CBN Gel Capsules, are made with isolated, hemp-derived cannabinol (CBN). Isolated CBN is made from the same all-natural hemp oil as our full-spectrum products, but then undergoes a proprietary filtration process that filters out plant material, waxes, chlorophyll, and more. The end result is a pure crystalline that contains only the CBN chemical compound, extracted from the hemp plant and refined down to an incredible purity.
Pure CBN Liquid combines this isolated CBN with sustainably-sourced medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil, an incredible source of essential fatty acids that helps naturally enhance bioavailability. It’s packaged in a 1-ounce bottle with a handy dropper top, and delivers roughly 30 servings of 10 mg of CBN each.
Pure CBN Gel Capsules also combine isolated CBN and MCT oil, but are presented in a convenient gel capsule form. They come in a 30-pack, with each gel capsule containing 20 mg of pure CBN.
What are the Benefits of CBN Products?
Kannaway’s new Pure CBN product line allows you to enjoy the natural health benefits of CBN, or cannabinol, the first cannabinoid ever identified by scientists. If you’re familiar with cannabis, you’re sure to have heard about its two most popular cannabinoids, CBD and THC. However, these are only two of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp.
CBN is a hemp cannabinoid that’s widely known as the “sleepy” cannabinoid because of its gentle sedative effects. While CBN is non-intoxicating, anecdotal evidence and some research findings suggest it helps naturally promote better sleep. In fact, research has shown it could be the most sedative of all cannabinoids.
When used in the evenings, CBN products can help naturally improve the quality and duration of the sleep you enjoy on a nightly basis. CBN also has a positive influence on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which in turn promotes homeostasis and systemic balance in the body to encourage overall better health.
How to Use CBN Products
The Pure CBN Liquid and Pure CBN Gel Capules are designed to be used prior to bedtime to encourage a more restful night. This is because CBN may produce a mild amount of drowsiness.
To best use Pure CBN Liquid, after shaking the bottle well, place one dropper (1 mL) of liquid under your tongue and hold it there until fully absorbed. The cannabinoids will diffuse through the mucous membranes in the mouth, arriving at your body’s systems relatively quickly so they can start enacting their natural effects.
For Pure CBN Gel Capsules, you simply need to take 1 capsule with a swig of water at bedtime. Once you swallow your CBN-infused capsule, the cannabinoids are eventually absorbed and delivered to your body’s systems through digestion.
How CBN Products Work: CBN Vs CBD
Like all cannabinoids, CBN elicits its natural effects by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a naturally-occuring signaling network responsible for keeping the body and its functions in homeostasis.
With that said, CBN interacts differently with the endocannabinoid receptors than CBD does. CBD positively influences the endocannabinoid system and its cannabinoid receptors through indirect means. CBN, on the other hand, fits into cannabinoid receptors like a lock and key for a more direct exchange.
When you use a Pure CBN product, whether Kannaway’s Pure CBN Liquid or Pure CBN Gel Capsules, the CBN compounds are absorbed into the body, where they’re able to have this direct interaction with your body’s cannabinoid receptors.
By interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBN can affect the function of many hormones and neurotransmitters, all in the effort of supporting the endocannabinoid system’s role of keeping the body performing at its best.
Among the many natural wellness benefits researchers continue to discover about CBN’s influence on the endocannabinoid system is a naturally sedative effect that can help promote better sleeping cycles.
CBN’s natural sleep-promoting properties combine beautifully with CBD, as the two cannabinoids interact differently with cells’ cannabinoid receptors to naturally encourage better, more rejuvenative sleep through different means. A well-operating endocannabinoid system leads to better, more consistent sleep cycles. So while CBD doesn't have sedative effects, it encourages healthier sleeping habits through its support of the endocannabinoid system.
