If you know Papa & Barkley, you know we’re passionate about leveraging the healing power of cannabinoids. If you’re already familiar with the cannabinoids CBD and THC, you’re in the perfect place to learn about a cannabinoid that hasn’t gotten as much attention (though we have a feeling that might soon change). It’s called CBN, and we’re thrilled to showcase it in our forthcoming CBN gummies for sleep.

But this presents a question: If you’re already a fan of our CBD for sleep products, what’s better: CBD or CBN for sleep? In today’s post, we’ll answer that question and others, including: What is CBN? What is the difference between CBD and CBN? Does CBN help with sleep? What’s the best CBN for sleep?

Ready? Let’s get set to get drowsy!

What Is CBN?

As regular readers of our CBD Blog know, CBD is part of a family of compounds called cannabinoids, natural compounds found in hemp, that elicit some very useful effects. CBN—short for cannabinol—is another cannabinoid, and like CBD it interacts with our bodies through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a vital regulatory network that helps our bodies stay healthy, regulate memory and sleep, and maintain homeostasis, among other functions.

What Is the Difference Between CBD and CBN?

As “cannabinoid cousins,” CBD and CBN share similarities and differences. As we referenced a moment ago, neither imparts a psychoactive euphoria or intoxication. CBD can impart a very mild cerebral “buzz” and has been shown to potentially ease your mind into relaxation (often a precursor to a good night of sleep). On the other hand, CBN may prompt drowsiness—providing promising potential for CBN use as a sleep aid.

Research continues as academics study CBN’s potential to play a role in stimulating the appetite and does appear to offer significant pain-fighting properties, though most researchers tend to agree that CBD is an overall better choice for fighting routine aches and strains, if that is the reason sleep eludes you.

That said, there’s no reason you can’t combine CBD and CBN for sleep. In fact, many clinicians point to the “entourage effect,” a phenomenon in which cannabinoids and other cannabis compounds act in partnership to elicit stronger effects together than they do on their own.

Does CBN Help with Sleep?

CBN is created by the breakdown of the cannabinoid THC, and some researchers believe this explains their overlaps in the possibility of imparting a gentle sleepiness. But CBN exhibits very different effects from its “big sibling.” Instead, many people find it contributes to a gentle drowsiness that makes it ideal as a sleep aid.
