What is Cannabinol (CBN) - Another CBD Oil Cannabinoid

Cannabinol, or CBN, is one of the compounds unique to marijuana plants, and it has only recently gained some traction of understanding. Like cannabidiol, it is considered to have many medicinal benefits that do not include the psychoactive results of THC, making it yet another reason that medical marijuana should be legalised.

What does CBN do?

CBN, not to be confused with the other important cannabinoid, CBD, has its own set of benefits and effects on a user. Although many of these effects are already known and widely accepted, researchers are well aware that there may be plenty of other positive effects to come from the use or consumption of CBN. This means there is likely much more scientific evidence and other proven benefits to emerge in the coming years.

So far, it is widely accepted that CBN is at least partially responsible for relieving pain, helping with insomnia, convulsions, and inflammation, stimulating the appetite and the growth of bone cells and acting as an antibacterial.

If you are already familiar with a pharmaceutical drug called diazepam, then it should be significant to you that just five milligrams of CBN are just as effective as twice that amount of the sedative diazepam. In other words, it is far more efficient than its FDA Approved counterpart when it comes to helping people sleep better at night.

If you are worried about psychoactive effects, you need not fear CBN. It has very little or no psychoactive effects at all, making life easier and higher quality for those who need to medicate with cannabis but also need to keep their head clear during treatment.

Where does CBN come from?

CBN is likely found in cannabis indica strains of marijuana, as its sleepy effects are documented as very similar to those of indica marijuana products. CBN is found in slight amounts compared to compounds such as THC and sometimes CBD, rarely being found at levels of more than just one percent in a dried, smokable product.

CBN is a direct result of the degrading of THC. In other words, when THC oxidizes (through the presence of either heat or oxygen), it turns into CBN. This can either be done through heating up the product or by storing a marijuana product poorly.

If you leave out a marijuana product that was originally high in THC, for example, it will eventually convert that THC into CBN. The same goes for marijuana that has not been cured properly. For this reason, many recreational users of marijuana (or those who need THC for their treatment) associate the effects of CBN with the sign of a poor quality bud.

The future of CBN

This, of course, is a false impression if you are in need of the positive effects of CBN. For instance, patients suffering from insomnia can find immense relief from CBN, so a bad bud for one person may be the perfect bud for another.

Because of the emerging understanding of CBN and other cannabinoids, there are likely going to be a number of products appearing that contain especially high amounts of CBN and other more “obscure” cannabinoids. These products are likely to include oils, capsules, edibles, and even patches that boast high levels of CBN. Until then you will have to do a little more research into ways of acquiring CBN rich products.

Dosage? Treatment options
What's the opinion on treatments for pre and post cancer cases? Mine specifically was a highly active Oncocytic Adrenocortical tumour, of 120grams. Symptoms had been disguised and misdiagnosed for approx. 20yrs due to its rarity and high risk of recurrence. I'm now waiting for my remaining adrenal gland to adjust after having been insignificant for so long. Are there any treatments for peoples with my sort of issues?? Even at the arduous recovery stage?
Because it is natural you can
Because it is natural you can take it in conjunction with your usual medication eg chemo tablets, using it as a dual treatment and if your tumors turn tiny or even completely disappear after 90 days on the oil don't praise the chemo it's this mircle product taking effect.
Question to MarijuanaOil.com.au
Where do we buy them capsules in the picture???The oil tastes so very strong so this solution seems a much better idea for the 1 gram or more a day dose. I'd like to purchase some. Thanks.
The Canna Caps are not
The Canna Caps are not available for sale yet. My personal recommendation is to take the oil as it has a sublingual effect and is absorbed into the blood stream more efficiently than taking a capsule which passes through your digestive system.

I suffer from anxiety,
I suffer from anxiety, depression and menopause. I am lethargic and not motivated at times. I eat healthy and exercise daily by walking and kettleball exercises. I refuse to take prescription pills for any of these conditions. Can any of these products help me in any way?
Yes. As I stated above CBD
Yes. As I stated above CBD Oil is very effective at treating a variety of ailments and conditions. However, I have not received any feedback yet on treating menopause. If you take the product please report back to me with the results.
I have been diagnosed with early onset of macular degeneration and have read that CBD can be an effective treatment. What is the difference between CBD and CBN. CBD is generally not available in Australia but appears that CBN is so therefore is CBN less effective?

Yes. I would recommend taking
Yes. I would recommend taking cannabis oil. The problem in Australia right now is supply of medical cannabis products. I suggest to try and make your own or find someone that can do it for you.
