Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Understanding CBN: The Lesser-Known Cannabinoid with Potential Benefits

When people think of cannabinoids, the first thing that usually comes to mind is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (cannabidiol). However, the world of cannabinoids is more diverse than you might imagine. One lesser-known but increasingly intriguing cannabinoid is CBN (cannabinol). In this blog post, we'll explore what CBN is, how it differs from other cannabinoids, and its potential benefits.

What is CBN?

CBN, or cannabinol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. Like THC and CBD, it is one of over 100 cannabinoids that have been identified in cannabis. However, CBN isn't typically found in high concentrations in fresh cannabis plants. Instead, it is often a byproduct of the degradation of THC, resulting from exposure to heat, light, or oxygen over time. This process, known as oxidation, converts THC into CBN.
CBN is non-intoxicating, which means it does not produce the psychoactive effects associated with THC. This makes it a potentially attractive option for individuals who want to experience the potential benefits of cannabinoids without the "high."

Key Differences Between CBN and Other Cannabinoids

Non-Psychoactive: Unlike THC, which is famous for its mind-altering effects, CBN does not induce a feeling of euphoria or altered perception. This makes it a more appealing choice for those seeking therapeutic benefits without the cognitive impairment.
Potential Sleep Aid: One of the most intriguing aspects of CBN is its potential as a sleep aid. While more research is needed, some studies suggest that CBN may have sedative properties, making it a possible natural remedy for insomnia.
Interaction with Other Cannabinoids: CBN is often found in full-spectrum CBD products. When combined with other cannabinoids and terpenes, it may contribute to the "entourage effect," where the various compounds work together to enhance each other's therapeutic effects.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Preliminary research also suggests that CBN may possess anti-inflammatory properties, which could make it a potential option for managing conditions characterized by inflammation.
Appetite Regulation: Some studies have explored CBN's impact on appetite, with findings indicating that it may have the potential to stimulate appetite. This could be beneficial for individuals dealing with conditions that cause a loss of appetite.

CBN and Potential Therapeutic Benefits

While research on CBN is still in its early stages compared to more well-known cannabinoids like CBD and THC, there is growing interest in its potential therapeutic benefits. Here are some areas where CBN may show promise:
Sleep Disorders: CBN's potential sedative properties make it an area of interest for individuals struggling with sleep disorders like insomnia.
Pain Management: Like other cannabinoids, CBN may have analgesic properties, which could be beneficial for those dealing with chronic pain.
Neuroprotection: Some studies suggest that CBN may have neuroprotective effects, which could be relevant in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
Skin Conditions: There is some evidence to suggest that CBN may be effective in topical formulations for treating skin conditions like psoriasis.


CBN is an emerging cannabinoid with unique properties and potential therapeutic benefits. While more research is needed to fully understand its effects and mechanisms of action, it offers a promising avenue for those seeking alternative treatments for various health issues, including sleep disorders, pain management, and inflammation.
As with any cannabinoid or natural remedy, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using CBN products, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications. As the research on CBN continues to develop, we can expect to gain a clearer understanding of its potential and its role in the ever-expanding world of cannabinoids.
