CBD, CBN and Melatonin united against insomnia

Sleep is physiologically indispensable for our physical and mental wellbeing, and its lack can lead to unpleasant side effects, from poor concentration to migraines, from mood swings to vision problems. Unfortunately, a large percentage of the population suffers from insomnia and widespread sleep disorders.

Cannabidiol (CBD), by interacting with the endocannabinoid system and other neurotransmitter systems, seems to be able to regulate a number of physiological functions including sleep, and due to its soothing and relaxing properties may be effective against insomnia and/or sleep disorders. Cannabinol (CBN) is a non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid produced by the cannabis sativa plant only at its most advanced stage of development. CBN also interacts with our endocannabinoid system, and studies have highlighted possible anticonvulsant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and mildly sedative properties. CBN is a versatile cannabinoid that is well suited to working in synergy with both CBD and melatonin.

But how can the synergy of CBD with CBN and melatonin help us sleep better?

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland that serves to regulate the body's circadian rhythm and is only released at night.

A circadian rhythm is a sort of internal biological clock that adapts to the different phases of the day, regulating and marking out certain fundamental physiological functions such as metabolism and sleep.

It is precisely when our biological clock is altered in relation to the external environment that we begin to experience psychophysical discomfort. A striking example of this is jet lag.

But the problem is that endogenous melatonin production is constantly threatened by factors such as stress, exposure to light sources or simply advancing age. This is why taking a melatonin supplement before going to bed is highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists.

CBNight is a well-balanced blend containing melatonin, CBN and CBD. These three molecules work in synergy not only to fight insomnia but also to re-establish circadian rhythms and improve the quality of sleep and of waking up, which is often unpleasant for many people.

The aim of the CBNight range, available in two formulas, CBNight Formula and CBNight Formula Plus, is for everyone to wake up refreshed and rested after a truly restorative sleep, no longer disturbed by unpleasant interruptions and unwanted abrupt awakenings.

The recommended dosage of CBNight is 1 ml per day, taken half an hour before going to bed.

CBN: the sleep-friendly cannabinoid

CBN or cannabinol is a phytocannabinoid that is produced by the Cannabis sativa plant at its most advanced stage of growth. More specifically, CBN is produced by the oxidation process of THC, but unlike the latter, it does not seem to have any psychotropic effect.

For a long time considered a by-product of THC, CBN has recently been rediscovered and re-evaluated. It has been the subject of numerous scientific studies to examine its properties and is one of the most interesting new cannabinoids from a medical point of view, just like CBD.

Like many other cannabinoids, cannabinol is able to bind to the cb1 and cb2 receptors present in our endocannabinoid system. This process has several positive effects on the body. Studies have highlighted possible analgesic, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, neuroprotective and mildly sedative properties. Working in synergy with CBD in the CBNight formula, CBN enhances its anxiolytic and relaxing properties. It also appears to support melatonin in its sleep-wake regulatory process and acts as an excellent connector between the three molecules.


About melatonin

Melatonin is an endogenous hormone produced by the pineal gland, which is essential for regulating the body's circadian rhythm and sleep-wake cycle.

This hormone is released at night as it is only activated in the dark. Its secretion stops when a light stimulus reaches the retina; this is signalled to the epiphysis (pineal gland), which automatically stops secreting this hormone, which peaks very low during the day and reaches its highest level at night.

Melatonin production is very low during the first few years of life and then gradually rises and falls again in old age due to calcification of the epiphysis.

Although it is an endogenous hormone, many factors can slow down or impair its production. It may therefore be advisable to supplement melatonin from an external source, particularly in the presence of sleep disorders. It is a safe product and, unlike some drugs on the market for treating insomnia, melatonin is very well tolerated and almost free of side effects.


Benefits

CBNight is an effective and safe product made from Italian hemp grown according to GACP guidelines. It is a natural product that can be used both regularly and extemporaneously to significantly improve sleep quality.

Both CBN and melatonin induce sleep by tapping into pre-existing biological processes.

CBNight has numerous benefits:

  • it makes falling asleep easier by reducing the time it takes to do so
  • it prevents nocturnal awakenings and promotes prolonged sleep maintenance
  • it relaxes mind and muscles
  • it reduces the effects of jet lag and/or the stress of all those particularly heavy situations that disturb the normal routine, such as a moving house or a traumatic event
  • if used continuously, it helps synchronise circadian rhythms
  • it helps you wake up refreshed and restored, with all the energy you need to face the day
  • if used daily, it significantly increases psychophysical wellbeing
  • it effectively and naturally counteracts insomnia

Just like all our other products, CBNight has been tested to meet the highest standards of quality and safety.

Who is CBNight for

CBNight is a natural and innovative product designed to help people who suffer from insomnia, have trouble falling asleep and/or wake up frequently in the middle of the night. It is also designed for those who find it difficult to wake up in the morning feeling tired and insufficiently rested. It is ideal for people who travel frequently for work and can be used occasionally to counteract the effects of jet lag or temporary insomnia.

How to take CBNight?

Taking CBNight is very easy, but it is important to remember to shake the bottle of oil before use. The best time to take it is half an hour before going to bed.

The best technique for taking CBNight is to put a few drops directly under the tongue, hold it in the mouth for thirty seconds before swallowing. In contact with the mucous membranes, it will be effective much more quickly.

CBNight dosage: how to adjust it?

The actual choice to be made is between the two formulations of CBNight available: CBNight Formula and CBNight Formula Pus. The latter contains a higher percentage of cannabinoids and is suitable for those who experience insomnia as a disabling disorder and/or have severe sleep and wake disturbances. It is ideal for reducing the effects of jet lag.

CBNight Formula contains a lower percentage of cannabinoids and is suitable for mild sleep disorders and for those who are new to cannabinoids.

For both formulas, the recommended dosage is 1ml per day half an hour before bedtime.


What science says

  • A number of studies document the effectiveness of CBD in treating anxiety-related sleep disorders. Scientific publications demonstrate the value of CBD in treating certain neuropsychiatric disorders, such as epilepsy, anxiety and some forms of depression. In a sample of 72 adults with anxiety and sleep disorders, CBD had a calming effect on the central nervous system and within one month both disorders decreased significantly.

 

  • Recent studies on sleep and cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, CBG) show that CBD may be promising for treating REM sleep behaviour disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness. Nabilone, on the other hand, a synthetic cannabinoid, is able to interact with serotonin receptors and helps temporarily in all cases of sleep apnoea. Also the Sleep Foundation recommends CBD to counteract sleep disorders.

 

  • Some studies suggest that CBN may be useful in treating the symptoms of ADHD, i.e. attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In a study of adults diagnosed with ADHD, a lower ASRS score (i.e. a diagnostic query by which a diagnosis can be made) was associated with a high dose of pure CBN than in other groups.
  • Both cannabidiol and cannabinol have important analgesic properties and help to relieve chronic muscular pain, temporomandibular disorders and fibromyalgia without central side effects and with consequent psychophysical relaxation

 

  • According to various scientific reviews external melatonin supplementation is well tolerated and has no negative effects in the short or long term. Melatonin has been shown to have antioxidant properties, to play a central role in neuronal survival and to be able to synchronise circadian rhythms and improve sleep quality and duration. The therapeutic properties of melatonin are not limited to fighting insomnia. They also help control sleep-related breathing disorders and hypersomnolence. Melatonin is an alternative supplement to the pharmaceutical treatments currently available for sleep disorders and, unlike these, is almost free of side effects.

 

  • Melatonin is effective in treating both primary sleep disorders and those associated with various neurological conditions. It has also been shown to be effective and safe in paediatric settings not only for treating insomnia but also for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorders.
