CBN and CBD are acutely different when it comes to their effect on most consumers’ appetites. While CBD can act as a mild appetite suppressant, CBN tends to stimulate one’s appetite.

According to Mary magazine’s blog, while CBN purportedly has a sedating effect on most users, CBD purportedly tends to cause a feeling of alertness rather than sluggishness, the morning after bedtime consumption.

“We found that CBN slightly prolongs the sleep time in barbiturate-induced sleep in mice. There is no current information that I am aware of that proves CBN is a sedative, even though it is already being marketed as such,” says Zoe Sigman one of the principal researchers at Project CBD, a leading think tank and non-profit CBD information site.

Both CBN and CBD are known anecdotally to relieve symptoms of pain and inflammation, by potentially altering pain signals that the brain receives. One way to take advantage of these compounds’ pain-relieving properties is to apply a product topically to the affected area directly. By topically applying rather than consuming these compounds, and bypassing the digestive system and liver, consumers lower the potential risk of interactions with prescription drugs. CBD may have contra-indications with a vast array of pharmaceuticals, including Warfarin or other blood thinners.

What is CBN?

Naptime and the munchies.

Whatever the intended usage of either compound, a patient should always consult a qualified doctor, before consuming any natural remedy or supplement that potentially has unforeseen contraindications. With the recent explosion in CBD products, less scrupulous vendors that are looking to cash in on the latest fad, may not produce a high-quality product that is lab tested for purity. Even worse, the CBD may contain useless amounts or dangerous additives.

One such vendor was called out by Consumer Reports when “Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University found that the products, all from Diamond CBD, a publicly-traded company, contained a compound called 5F-ADB. That compound, often found in illegal synthetic marijuana products such as “K2” and “Spice,” can trigger paranoia and panic attacks, increase heart rate and blood pressure, and cause convulsions, organ damage, and even death, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency. ”

CBD + CBN + THC = Sleep
According to Steep Hill Labs in Berkeley, California, “CBN is synergistic with both CBD and THC for inducement of sleeping. When mixed in the correct ratios, CBN becomes an effective sleep aid of five to six hours duration.” This is an obvious benefit to insomniacs. Considering that chronic pain is one of the most common reasons for insomnia, CBN offers the ability to hundreds of millions of patients who suffer from one or both of these conditions.
