CBN or cannabinol is a metabolite of THC obtained when THC breaks down due to oxidation or aging. On the flip side, while THC is known for its high psychoactive effects, CBN produces less of a ‘high’ effect and has numerous medical benefits. It is popular for its sleep-inducing properties making it an ideal treatment for insomnia cases. The cannabinoid can also serve as an anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory.
