What is CBN?

Cannabinol, also known as CBN, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid similar to CBD, or Cannabidiol. CBN can work as a powerful natural sleep aid and sedative. Additionally, CBN doesn’t contain any THC, so it is non-psychoactive. 

The Effects of CBN

So, how does CBN make you feel? The effects of CBN vary from person to person, and your experience will be contingent on the product you are using and how you ingest it.

Here are the main benefits of CBN that users report:

- Pain relief

- Increased appetite

- Migraine relief

- Relaxation

- Better sleep 

When it comes to getting your desired benefits, it’s all about picking the right product. If you’re 

Searching for pain relief or a boost in mood, consider taking CBN orally through a gummy, tincture, or vape. If you’d like relief from skin issues such as burns or irritation, a topical cream may be best, 

It’s important to note that the effects of gummies may be delayed up to 45 minutes from the time of ingestion. Tinctures work faster than edibles, but there is also a delay. If you’d rather not wait, our THC carts work by absorbing vapor into your lungs, and they are the fastest working form of CBN.

Is CBN Right For Me?

Due to the mild nature of CBN, virtually anyone above the age of 21 could benefit from its powerful sedative properties. Whether you want something to help relieve pain or you need something to help you get to sleep and stay asleep longer, CBN has a vast array of medicinal uses. 

CBN is also a terrific marijuana alternative. Many people who use Delta 9 THC products report experiencing some symptoms of anxiety or paranoia. CBN provides all the pain-relieving, sedative benefits of Delta 9 without the risk of inducing anxiety. If you’re someone who has tried marijuana previously for medicinal purposes and didn’t like it, then CBN might be a great substitute. 

CBN is also a great option if you would like to reap the benefits of THC, but live in a state where recreational marijuana use is still illegal. 

What is Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 or Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is the traditional version of THC and is the active ingredient in the Marijuana plant. This cannabinoid provides the typical “high” associated with cannabis products, and it is currently federally illegal in most states in the U.S. 

What is the Difference Between Delta 9 and CBN?

The biggest difference that separates Delta 9 from CBN, is that CBN is federally legal in the United States, whereas Delta 9 is legal in some states, but federally illegal. CBN is not psychoactive like Delta 9, so it provides all the medicinal benefits of Delta 9 without getting you “high.”

What Makes CBN Different From THC?

The biggest thing that makes CBN different from THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the fact that CBN isn’t psychoactive, and therefore won’t give you the “high feeling that THC products do. However, CBN still has a multitude of beneficial medicinal qualities for many users. THC has many of the same medicinal properties as CBN but also gives users a psychoactive experience.

Is CBN Legal?

CBN is fully legal under federal law due to the 2018 Farm Bill. Also known as the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, this legislation changed the legal classification of hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity. Wording within the bill states that any cannabis derivative containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC would no longer be defined as marijuana in regards to the controlled substances act. Because CBN contains less than 0.3% of Delta 9, it is legal to produce, distribute, and sell in the United States. 

However, each state makes its own rules and regulations in regards to hemp products, and multiple states, including Utah, Rhode Island, Montana, Mississippi, Iowa, Idaho, Delaware, Colorado, Arkansas, Arizona, and Alaska, have either restricted or banned CBN. 

As long as you live in a state that has not outlawed Delta 8, you can purchase Delta 8 products online and have them shipped directly to your door. For the fastest shipping and the highest quality Delta 8 products, check out our lineup here at Elyxr.

Is It Legal to Ship CBN? 

Hemp products like CBN can safely and legally be shipped through the United States Postal Service (USPS) to most states, however, we cannot ship to multiple states that have strict hemp laws. Information on hemp laws by specific states can be found here.   

Can Anyone Purchase CBN?

There is not currently a federal minimum age requirement to purchase CBN, however, some states require consumers to be 21 years old or older to purchase cannabis products. It’s always a good idea to check your specific state’s requirements before attempting to purchase hemp products. 

Where Can I Get CBN?

If you live in a state where CBN is legal you can get this cannabinoid shipped to your home from a multitude of online stores. However, it’s important to be very selective about where you get your cannabis products from. You can ensure that you are getting high-quality hemp products if the company you are purchasing from provides a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for its products. A COA certifies that a company has conducted a thorough lab analysis on its products and that those products meet certain quality and safety standards.

How Is CBN Different From CBD?

As the THC compounds within the cannabis plant undergo aging, they undergo degradation, resulting in the creation of a less potent cannabinoid known as CBN. This compound exhibits about 25% of the potency of THC, rendering it comparatively mild. While CBD is entirely devoid of psychoactive effects, higher doses of CBN can elicit mild psychoactive responses.

How long Does It Take For CBN To Work?

The onset of effects varies based on the serving size and the specific product being used. Typically, you can expect to start feeling the effects of CBN within 15 to 60 minutes after ingestion. If you're integrating it into your nightly routine to aid sleep, it's advisable to take it approximately an hour before bedtime.
