CBN vs CBD What’s The Difference
There are thousands of hemp products available on the market. Whether an individual is new or experienced with hemp products, there is something for everyone. However, sometimes choosing the right product for your needs can be confusing. With so many options available, it can be hard to know which one to buy.
Take, for instance, CBD and CBN products. While both kinds of products are similar, CBD and CBN have their own distinct properties and uses.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids found within the hemp plant. It is also the most prominent cannabinoid found in hemp, more so than THC, CBN, and other cannabinoid isolate products that can be found on store shelves. Because it is found in larger quantities than other cannabinoids, extracting CBD is easier and can account for the vast variety of options on the market.
Over the years, research has uncovered a plethora of properties possessed by the CBD cannabinoid. Some of the most popular properties include:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Sleep promotion/drowsiness
- Calming properties
- Evidence to suggest protection against neurological disease
- Alleviate pain
Because of its variety of properties, it has become one of the most popular cannabinoids on the market. Shoppers can find everything from edibles to topicals and more on store shelves across the country. The popularity of CBD and its variety of properties has made this cannabinoid the largest niche in the hemp market.
What is CBN?
CBN, or Cannabinol another non-psychoactive cannabinoid, is found in much smaller quantities than CBD. Because it is found in smaller quantities than CBD and THC, it is often referred to as a minor cannabinoid. Formally known to the scientific community as Cannabinol, CBN has grown as a popular niche within the hemp community in recent years.
This cannabinoid is known for its calming and sleep promotion properties. However, there is some scientific evidence to suggest CBN can be used for conditions like arthritis and some forms of Epilepsy. Research concerning these conditions is still considered preliminary and is currently the ongoing topic of multiple studies by research teams around the world.
According to a paper published in 2018 by researchers in the Department of Psychology at the University of New Mexico, evidence suggests, “The current results are consistent with survey-based studies showing increasing reported usage of cannabis for treating insomnia in healthy people and patients with other primary health conditions.”
How are CBD and CBN different?
While CBN and CBD share many similar properties, they do differ quite a bit. For instance, CBN is better known for its sleep promotion property whereas CBD is better known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
CBD is also found in larger quantities within the hemp plant than CBN. Since CBN is a minor cannabinoid, it requires more biomass for processors to extract the CBN isolate. Genetics also plays a large role in cannabinoid production. Certain strains produce more of the CBN cannabinoid than others.
