CBN for Dogs & Cats

What is CBN?

Cannabinol (CBN) is typically derived from THCa that is oxidized and has a mild psychotropic effect. It has shown to cause less of the paranoia and stress that some cannabis strains that contain high THC. Degraded flower or bud containing THC will eventually convert to CBN over time. People have often reported old or aged cannabis as causing a more sleepy or tired effect, but no studies have pinpointed on whether or not this is from CBN solely.

CBN for pets can be used as a sleep aid or calming agent. It has also been shown to help maintain healthy bone and joint function. CBN primarily binds to CB2 receptors in the body with low or weak binding affinity to CB1 receptors, which may allude to why so many tout it as a sleep aid. Much more research is needed, particularly in the realm of CBN for dogs and cats, to assess whether or not this cannabinoid has therapeutic potential.

When combined with a full spectrum CBD extract (containing a wide array of minor cannabinoids and terpenes), CBN for dogs and cats can provide a unique blend of bio active compounds to support overall wellness. Many pet owners report a stronger calming effect along with pets gaining more restful sleep. Specifically in the case of elderly pets with sundowners syndrome that tend to lack recognition of day and nighttime cycles.

Although more research is needed on the use of CBN for pets, the potential to be a safer therapeutic option for elderly or stressed dogs and cats is of interest. Pet dementia is something many pet owners experience with aging pets and CBN can be a safer alternative to provide comfort in their golden years.
