CBD, an abbreviation of cannabidiol, a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis and hemp plants, is going viral across the globe. Hailed for its natural anecdotal anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, CBD is being added to everything from skincare to food. However, CBD is just one of the hundreds of compounds inherent to the cannabis plant. Even though THC and CBD are garnering all the buzz, there are myriad other cannabis compounds which can help alleviate a plethora of symptoms –including CBN.
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.
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’re proud to offer both broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD for these exact reasons. The power to choose if THC is in your product or not should be in your hands, not the brand’s — so we work hard to give you that choice.
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.
If a company chooses just to remove the THC and retain the other compounds, users still get to enjoy the synergy of the compounds working together. All non-psychoactive, the only cannabinoid left out of the bunch is THC.
Think of broad-spectrum extracts as simply the step you would take to ensure a full-spectrum product is free of THC. The refining process is an integral part of what makes a broad-spectrum extract safe and potent, and it allows brands to remove any unwanted cannabinoids or other hemp compounds from the formula.
