Introducing Shut Eye™
BY NOW YOU’VE HEARD OF CBD AND THC—BUT WHAT ABOUT CBN?
If you’ve ever consumed cannabis that was a little old and it made you sleepier than high, you and Cannabinol (CBN) are acquainted. You’ve probably even slept together.
CBN is formed when THC is exposed to specific conditions--essentially time, heat, and oxygen. It is not produced by the cannabis plant, rather it is the created during the degradation process.
Steep Hill, a renowned cannabis research facility, asserts that “of the known cannabinoids, CBN appears to be the most sedative.” They also add that 2.5 to 5mg of CBN can have the same sedative effects as a mild pharmaceutical (5-10mg of diazepam, to be precise).
CBN works in synergy with CBD and Δ-9-THC, and in the right amounts can be an effective sleep aid for 5-6 hours.
Research on cannabinol is still in its infancy, with most peer-reviewed journals posted many years—and even decades—ago. We will keep this page updated as we learn more.
Not only is CBN amazing for sleep, but combined with THC it is shown to reduce the effects of glaucoma and fight free radicals in your blood. The entourage effect is a powerful thing,
Shut Eye is a soothing combination of 5mg CBN and 5mg CBD. At Kin Slips, we use pure oil with added terpenes to achieve a specific, desired, and consistent experience.
