Why include CBD + CBN Oil in the Sleep Tincture?
On its own, CBD is a powerful and effective compound that impacts positively on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates and balances sleep, immune response, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism, memory, and other vital processes. When CBD is combined with other cannabinoids, such as CBN, it produces what is known as the Entourage Effect. In essence, each cannabinoid increases the effectiveness of the other. When terpenes are added to the mix, that effectiveness grows even stronger.
What is CBN?
CBN, or cannabinol, is a minor cannabinoid and a derivative of THC. When THC ages, it becomes CBN. But unlike its parent compound, CBN is a non-intoxicating, so it does not get you “high.” Furthermore, CBN has many wellness benefits, the most notable being the calming effect it has on the body and mind. This calming effect makes it easier to unwind your mind to prepare you for sleep and is one of the main reasons why CBN tinctures for sleep are such a popular choice for those suffering from insomnia.
Similar to the way other cannabinoids work in the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBN binds to CB1 receptors. The result is a deep restfulness of the body and mind. This physiological effect tells the body it’s time for sleep.
When should I take CBD Oil Sleep Tincture?
For your first night, take your CBD tincture about 30–60 minutes before bed. Once you have an idea of how your body responds to the tincture, you can adjust your serving time accordingly. Do not take CBD Oil Sleep Tincture before driving, operating heavy machinery or other potentially dangerous tasks that require your full energy and concentration.
