Using Cannabinoids to Help with Relaxation, Self Care, and Whole-Body Wellness
With all of the advances in technology, we live in a world of distractions. Whether you work from home or commute to an office, you are constantly bombarded with pings, notifications, and distractions. In this world, how are you supposed to turn off, unplug and unwind?
Everyone has different ways of reducing stress, reducing aches, and pains and helping usher in the proper night sleep that so many of us need. For many, cannabis offers the best option. Whether it is in water tinctures, edibles (like our Doozies), flower, or in muscle rubs, utilizing cannabinoids like CBD has become extremely popular, but CBN or Cannabinol is the key cannabinoid in promoting deep rest and relaxation and helping to heal the body.
The Benefits of CBN
Recent studies have shown CBN offers a variety of potential health benefits as it kickstarts the endocannabinoid system in your body. Here are some of the benefits of CBN:
1. CBN to Assist in Relaxation:
Research has shown that when combined with THC, CBN offers more of a sedative effect than just CBD. Where CBD does not have any psychedelic effect, CBN and THC combine as a mild sedative to help relax the body and mind.
2. CBN to Help Reduce Pain.
Studies show that CBN has certain properties that mimic the pain-relieving capabilities of the body. While this information is still being researched, researches have identified that “CBN appears to influence the activity of neurons that are sensitive to capsaicin”. CBN has also been shown to be an anti-inflammatory and helps to dilate the blood vessels in the body helping to reduce pain.
3.CBN and Bone Health
Like many cannabinoids, CBN has been identified as a cannabinoid that assists in healing bones and positively affecting bone growth. Studies have shown that CBN stimulates stem cells that increase bone growth and has been shown to reduce the rate of osteoporosis in some patients.
As CBD continues to become more popular, we must be sure that we don’t discount the other cannabinoids that are available in full-spectrum flower products. In fact, CBN specifically helps the body absorb and deliver cannabinoids to the body in a more effective manner.
This means that with a small amount of CBN in a ratio it would allow for more efficient delivery of other cannabinoids found present with CBN. We believe this is why our 4:2:1 Beauty Sleep ratio has shown to be so effective without the use of mind-altering hormones like Melatonin. We choose to go a more natural route and formulate only using cannabis as nature intended.
Our Process for capturing CBN via CO2 extraction:
First, we extract freshly harvested and cured flowers into a high THC extract. Second, we take that high THC extract and run it through a calibrated heat incline process that rapidly degrades the THC to CBN at a precise conversion temperature. It’s a very delicate process that our in-house innovators have dialed into perfection. CBN is in such a low percentage in the plant after harvest that the best ways to ingest it is in the concentrated form. Our Beauty Sleep Water-soluble Tincture has 20mg of CBN in each bottle. When combined with THC, CBD, and our TLC, (Terpenes, Love, Cannabinoids Standardized Profile), it has a symbiotic or entourage effect that delivers the benefits to fight those sleepless nights.
