CBN is short for Cannabinol. Cannabinol is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant and like CBD works with the body's endocannabinoid system (Commonly referred to as the ECS). Doctors and Scientists are just starting to research this cannabinoid and the benefits of CBN are looking pretty amazing.

The most talked about benefit for CBN is for helping people sleep. The studies are old and there are not a lot of them so we dont' really have any concrete information on any benefits of CBN that have been tested and studied formally.
That being said there are a few studies on the effects of CBN
One is from 1995 and showed that CBN in mice can prolong time asleep
Another CBN study by Steep Hill Labs in 2017, found that a 2.5-to-5 milligram dose of CBN was as effective as a 5-to-10 milligram dose of the pharmaceutical sedative diazepam (otherwise known as Valium).
More studies need to be done to really determine the effects of CBN on the body to understand and be able to make a claim. In the meantime you can always try some CBN products and see if the help.
Our Night Time CBD Tincture has naturally occurring CBN cannabinoid profile and if you would like to try and see if CBN helps you stay asleep longer of fall asleep faster it is a great way to conduct your own CBN Sleep Experiment.

Research on CBN for pain relief shows that CBN has analgesic or pain-relieving capabilities in the body. CBN works with the Endocannabinoid System to stimulate neurons that are receptive to capsaicin. (Capsaicin is found in chili peppers, and can be found in many topical pain relief products).
