CBN (short for Cannabinol) is a lesser known cannabinoid. In nature, CBN is found in aging cannabis plants and can increase the effect of THC when smoked. CBN is created when the THC-A begins to degrade. By itself, CBN is responsible for producing a relaxing, sleepy effect. A study by Steep Hill Labs has claimed that CBN, even in low doses, has a similar effect upon the body as a mild pharmaceutical sedative. Those suffering from insomnia, muscle spasms, and even ALS could find relief in CBN.
