Calling all wellness junkies: have you heard of CBN? It’s the latest cannabinoid shaking things up and quickly gathering a legion of fans for its reported benefits as a pain reliever, sleep aid, and anti-anxiety supplement. We sat down with Right Wellness to get the rundown on the latest hemp-based plant medicine.
A Quick Biology Lesson on CBN
Before we get into the plants, the first thing to understand is that everyone has an endocannabinoid system. Yep, our bodies are actually wired for cannabinoids. However, the type of cannabinoid affects our bodies differently.
As Right Wellness explains, “Lesser-known cannabinoids like CBN have been limited due to their relative difficulty to extract. This is most likely why many people are finding CBN to be more effective than other strains for helping to manage pain, sleep and anxiety.”
What Exactly Does CBN Do?
If you’ve been disappointed with similar products in the past and find yourself wondering, “does CBN actually work or is it just placebo?” You won’t find those issues with CBN.
Instead, you’ll physically feel the effects. If you’ve ever taken THC you can expect a similar bodily response with CBN — basically, you’ll feel very relaxed. This is all made possible thanks to Right Wellness and their good friend, science. CBN is a minor cannabinoid found in mature hemp plants, which makes it extremely rare and difficult to extract with purity. Fortunately, Right Wellness has the proprietary technology to extract pure CBN and process it for effective delivery.
Once CBN is inside the body, either via tincture or a quick release gel capsule, the molecular compound naturally bonds with specific receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. A wide range of our body’s physiological functions and responses are managed by this complex system, including mood, pain perception, appetite, and cognitive functions. CBN helps the receptors in this system do what’s needed in order to invigorate all kinds of desirable changes, to give you a sense of balance and relief.
