Clinicians must use the research and medical data available to choose the most appropriate cannabinoid therapies for their patients. This will ensure that they select treatments that deliver consistent results with maximal patient benefit and minimal side effects.
Below are some frequently asked questions about CBN products.
Why Do You Recommend Using Full-Spectrum CBN Instead of a Specific Form?
Broad spectrum CBN therapy is the preferred treatment in cases where a more targeted approach may be ineffective or contraindicated, such as in children and patients with complex comorbidities. There are also cases where a more nuanced degree of CBN dosing may not be clinically appropriate. For example, some patients experience severe nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, and their appetite may not be optimal. In these cases, the ability to use high-dose CBN oil without inducing nausea is preferable.
What Are Some of the Reasons Patients Prefer Full Spectrum CBN?
Several factors contribute to this phenomenon, including that full-spectrum extracts are typically dispensed at a lower volume making the cost per milligram of CBD less expensive. Another is that full-spectrum extracts can provide a wider range of therapeutic benefits that may be beneficial for specific patient conditions.
What Are Some Common Misconceptions About Full-Spectrum CBN?
Some clinicians have expressed concern about purified forms of CBN being non-FDA approved or containing hidden active ingredients. In reality, though, the only difference between a purified form of CBN and a full-spectrum extract is concentration. It is important to note that all forms of CBN, whether they are isolated or full-spectrum extracts, have undergone extensive safety testing for purity and potency.
Why Is the Use of Full-Spectrum CBN More Preferable When Treating Children?
Children are often given liquid extracts, making it easy for patients to dose themselves quickly. Since children’s doses can vary between each administration, being able to dose without any added ingredients is critical in ensuring that they get their proper medication. CBN can treat many conditions. However, it is important to note that there are also some conditions for which CBN may exacerbate symptoms.
