Cannabinol (CBN)

Many people are only familiar with the cannabinoids THC and CBD, but what most don't realize is the number of other cannabinoids found in marijuana that have medicinal and therapeutic properties.

Over the last few years, CBD has been on the rise as an effective treatment in seizures, muscle spasms, and other ailments because of it's "non-psychoactive" compounds. There are similar cannabinoids to CBD, like Cannabinol (CBN).

Cannabinol is derived from the oxidation and degradation of THC and is found in only trace amounts. As your buds dry out over time, the levels of CBN are said to be higher as THC lowers. So if you want to keep your buds high in THC, make sure to store it correctly!
