Introduction to CBN gummies
What is CBN?
CBN is the major active metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in cannabis plants. CBN is the third-most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana and the most abundant in hashish. It is less psychoactive than THC but can still have medicinal benefits. CBN more commonly found in aged plant materials. THC degrades to CBN over time, so older plants produce more CBN than younger plants. CBN has been shown to have many health benefits, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory properties, and anti-anxiety effects.
What are the benefits of CBN?
CBN (cannabinol) has been shown to have antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. It also has the ability to stimulate appetite and help with insomnia and sleep disorders. CBN has been studied for its effects on the brain and nervous system with promising results. The cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body, including in the brain. Endocannabinoid system regulates several functions within the brain such as mood, memory, pain perception and even appetite.
Why take CBN in gummy form?
CBN in gummy form is a great option for those who want to try CBN but don’t want to smoke or vape. Why would you want to consume it this way? Well, there are several reasons why you might want to do so:
They are easier to ingest than oils and tinctures, which can be messy if you’re not careful.
They are easy to take on the go. You can drop one into your pocket or purse without worrying about spills or leaks.
The taste of CBD gummies is great! They taste like fruit juices or other treats. If you’re looking for an edible option, this is definitely a good choice!
When compared to other forms of CBD, the gummies offer more precise doses.
Gummies vs Tinctures
Gummies and tinctures are both forms of CBD extract. They are both made from the same plant, but the process changes how the CBD is delivered to your body.
Tinctures like GVB Biopharma THC-Free CBN distillate is made by extracting the hemp oil using a solvent. The end product is a liquid that can be consumed in its own right, or mixed with other foods or beverages. A gummy is a soft, chewy candy that you can eat right away or save for later. The term comes from Greek mythology, where it meant “a thing eaten in haste.”
In recent years, the popularity of gummies has grown dramatically due to their convenience and ease of consumption. They come in many flavors and consist of organic cannabis oil suspended in a sugar matrix with other natural ingredients. Some people find them easier to take than other forms of CBD products.
CBN vs CBD
Cannabidiol—also known as CBD—is one of the most popular cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa plants. Unlike CBN, which is directly derived from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD exists independently within the plants.
While CBD has received more clinical attention than CBN, CBN isn't quite as popular in mainstream retail products. However, research supports several therapeutic benefits of these compounds.
Both CBN and CBD have similar effects on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating your central nervous system, as well as helping you respond to internal and external stimuli.
