Best known for:

Being a good cannabinoid for sleep.


CBN is usually sold as an isolate.

Is it a phytocannabinoid? (naturally occurring cannabinoid)

CBN is a phytocannabinoid

My Opinion

CBN is a very good but one-note cnoid. For any sleep or relaxation blend, I consider CBN a must, but outside of those 2 scenarios I almost never use CBN. For any daytime blend, always avoid CBN. Another flaw CBN seems to run into is not quite lasting all night - even when eaten. This is where CBNo comes in - with a blend that has both CBN and CBNo, you will get put to sleep by the CBN but KEPT asleep by the CBNo. When buying CBN, I almost always elect to get HHC/CBN instead as it is much cheaper and I'm not making any blends that are 40%+ CBN anyway.

Solid, classic, sleepy. Good stuff.

What can CBN do for a blend?
  • Heavy Sedation

  • Potentiation

  • Calming

  • Badder texture (when cold mixed with distillates)

  • Anxiety Relief ("taking the edge off")
