What is CBN?
What You Should Know About the Cannabis-based Sleep Aid
What is CBN?
In case you need another reason to love cannabis, meet CBN. Another extract from the cannabis plant, cannabinol (or CBN) has been gaining popularity lately. CBN has been praised by many for its abilities as a sleep aid, as well as for pain management and appetite stimulation.
While CBD gummies are helpful for many health issues, it’s the sleep-inducing properties of CBN that have people buying more CBN gummies lately. While CBD and CBN may sound very similar, they act in different ways.
CBD + CBN
If you are suffering from insomnia or just having a hard time sleeping for any reason, you might want to try the one-two punch of CBD + CBN. Stacking the effects of both cannabinoids is a great strategy. Combining CBD with CBN results in an ultra-drowsy effect when taken together—and you don’t need to buy them separately either.
Rather than buying a CBD oil and a CBN oil and then guessing at dosages, you can purchase products like our organic EndoCure CBD + CBN sleep aid, or CBD + CBN oils. These products have been specially balanced to help with sleep, taking the guesswork and Googling out of the picture.
The Benefits of Taking CBN
For those who struggle with illnesses that cause difficulty sleeping, chronic pain, and nausea, or lack of appetite, CBN may prove to be an asset. It’s noted as having very similar effects to CBD, but with a real emphasis on inducing sleep. Getting a good night’s rest is the cornerstone of all mental and physical wellbeing.
CBN is also known to have neuroprotective properties, meaning it helps to preserve the neuronal structure and function of the brain. CBN has the power to assist in many aspects of a healthy life—for those with or without illness.

Why are People Sleeping Better with CBN?
While CBD gummies are already known to produce a somewhat sedative effect, CBN is known for helping people get to sleep. That’s because the effects are much stronger.
While CBD typically only binds with the CB 2 receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBN binds to both the CB 1 and CB 2 receptors. This could be one reason the effects of CBN are felt more strongly.
There are more studies that need to be performed before this question can be answered fully, but that day will come soon. For now, we have anecdotal evidence to go on that indicates people sleep deeper and fall asleep more easily with CBN because it’s stronger than CBD.
CBD vs CBN: What’s the Difference?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabinol (CBN) are two similar, yet very different cannabinoids. One of the biggest differences is how studied they are. While CBD oil has been studied extensively for its ability to help reduce seizures, anxiety, and pain, CBN has flown off the radar until recently.
While CBD is non-psychoactive, CBN is about a quarter as psychoactive as THC. You could think of CBN as ‘THC-light’ or ‘strong CBD.’ The most predominant characteristic of CBN is its more powerful ability to help with sleep. The biggest difference for the consumer is that while the effects are similar to CBD, CBN will make you far drowsier.
How to Use CBN Gummies as a Sleep Aid
Using CBN gummies as a sleep aid is simple and can even be fun. Let’s assume you took our advice and ordered your EndoCure CBD+CBN Sleep Gummies, and they were promptly delivered.
A few hours before you want to go to bed, take one gummy. We suggest not going out and operating any heavy equipment or vehicles between taking the gummy and going to bed.
Taking cannabinoid extracts orally means they will take about an hour to kick in, so make sure you wait at least two hours before re-dosing if you are not yet drowsy or asleep. Then turn in for a night of deep REM sleep!
1) How much CBN should I take to sleep?
For most people who use CBN gummies, a dosage of 5 to 10 milligrams of CBN should do the trick. With that said, many products contain other cannabinoids, so it’s important to read the recommended dosages put out by the manufacturers of each product.
Our EndoCure CBD + CBN Sleep Gummies are one example of this. Since they are loaded with not only CBN, but CBD and even some melatonin, one CBD+CBN gummy should do the trick.
Remember, with any new cannabis product, the best advice is to start low and go slow. Everyone reacts differently to cannabinoids based on their body chemistry and various other factors.
2) Is CBN illegal?
Due to slow federal reform, despite legalization in most states, there is no single answer to this question. It depends on which state you live in. Thanks to the Farmer’s Bill of 2018, CBN is now legal in most states.
Unfortunately, legislation has been slow to catch up to legalizations all over the country. While at the state level, CBN is legal in most places, it is still federally deemed an illegal substance, though for how long remains to be seen.
3) What gummies make you sleep?
Depending on the nature of your needs, CBD gummies can cause enough drowsiness to help you fall asleep. There are a few ways this works, but calming an anxious mind can be the primary factor that helps you fall asleep. If you are living a busy lifestyle or suffer from insomnia, you will likely need something stronger. In this case, adding CBN is a great route.
Our EndoCure CBD + CBN Gummies are a great sleep aid. With CBD, CBN and melatonin, EndoCure CBD + CBN Gummies can be the gateway to more restful Zs.
4) What to consider before buying CBN?
CBN extracts and gummies are relatively safe. While there are no known interactions, always check with your doctor first if you are taking other medications. The next thing is your cannabis-experience level. Have you tried CBD? If you haven’t, you may want to see if the lighter cannabinoid will do the trick before jumping to CBN.
Finally, consider your source. Always be sure to purchase your hemp and cannabis products from a licensed, legal, and high-quality retailer. A solid vendor can help you learn more about special products for your needs and will have a good, high-quality selection to work with.
