In natural remedies, cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) have gained significant attention for their potential health benefits. If you’ve come across CBD tinctures for sale, you might wonder how CBN differs from CBD.

Here at Verdes Cannabis, we are a medical cannabis dispensary in New Mexico dedicated to educating our customers on the unique benefits of cannabis products. We offer a variety of tinctures for sale and can help you make an informed decision on which products are best for you.

Below, we’ve outlined the differences between CBD and CBN and why CBD tinctures are ideal for customers new to cannabis products.

Understanding CBD and CBN

 CBD and CBN are both cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. However, they have distinct chemical compositions and effects on the body.

What is CBD?

 CBD is the most well-known and extensively studied cannabinoid. It’s non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t induce a “high” sensation like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another prominent cannabinoid found in cannabis. CBD is commonly extracted from hemp plants and used in various forms.

What is CBN?

 CBN is a lesser-known cannabinoid that naturally occurs as cannabis plants age. It’s a byproduct of THC degradation, so it’s usually found in higher concentrations in older cannabis plants. CBN is mildly psychoactive, but its effects are considered to be milder compared to THC.

Differences Between CBD and CBN

 While both CBD and CBN interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, they have distinct characteristics.


 CBD is widely recognized for its therapeutic potential to promote relaxation, reduce anxiety, alleviate pain, and improve sleep. It’s commonly used to address various conditions, including inflammation, epilepsy, and mood disorders.

Although less extensively studied, CBN is believed to have sedative effects, making it potentially useful for sleep-related issues. It also promotes relaxation and has anti-anxiety effects.


 Due to the higher concentration of CBD in hemp and how much more research has been conducted on this cannabinoid, CBD products are more readily available at cannabis dispensaries.

However, as CBN gains recognition, more companies are beginning to offer products that specifically contain CBN or a combination of CBD and CBN.


 CBD is in a wide variety of products. You can consume CBD as gummies, edibles, and pills. There are also CBD-infused lotions, shampoos, creams, oils, and tinctures on the market.

On the other hand, CBN can only be consumed as an oil, tincture, tea bag, or capsule.

Why We Recommend CBD Products

 CBD products have almost every effect CBN offers without the psychoactive effects and strong sedative quality: anti-anxiety, anti-inflammation, pain relief, and relaxation.

For many, this is considered the ultimate combo for getting through daily life without the feelings of intoxication.

Additionally, due to the lack of research on CBN, little is known about this cannabinoid. The side effects and risks are unclear, while CBD has gone through many studies acknowledging its health benefits.

Finally, CBN is not readily available in as many forms as CBD. Many cannabis dispensaries only carry CBD products. The positive is that this fact can help narrow your search for the right product.

Choosing the Right Product: Perks of CBD Tinctures

 Suppose you’re interested in exploring the potential benefits of CBD. In that case, choosing high-quality products is essential since so many are on the market. Consider using cannabis tinctures if you’re looking for a safe and effective way to consume CBD.

What is a cannabis tincture?

 Tinctures are liquid, concentrated herbal extracts from soaking one or more plants in alcohol, vinegar, or oil. Cannabis tinctures are concentrated cannabis extracts, and CBD tinctures are concentrated extracts of that particular cannabinoid.

Why should I use tinctures over other CBD products?

 Tinctures have been used in traditional, natural medicine for decades. Examples of herbs commonly made into tinctures are chamomile, garlic, and ginger. You can get all the health benefits of these herbs in just a few convenient drops under your tongue.

The same idea of convenience applies to a CBD tincture. They’re ideal for those sensitive to smoke but want the same experience. And unlike edibles, where digestion is required for them to work, tinctures are a fast-acting and safe option for people with digestion issues.

Additionally, if you are new to cannabis or trying a new product, you should be careful with the dosage. It would be best to experiment on finding the perfect amount that makes you feel best. Tinctures come with droppers that allow complete control over your intake to measure your desired strength.

A typical dosage is around 2-3 drops, and the effects usually last 2-4 hours, but all of this depends on the strength and quality of the tincture. Medical cannabis dispensaries offering CBD tinctures for sale can advise you on the best dosage for you and your needs.
