But, what if we told you there are gummies that can get you high? Well yes, there are. Since CBD, THC and CBN became popular amongst the people, a lot of manufacturers turned to producing gummies made from each of them. 

Now, the catch here is while all of them may sound to be too similar, and also you’d expect them to be- they’re not. CBN gummies and CBD gummies are extremely popular amongst the masses, but are quite different. Let’s take a deep dive into how CBN gummies differ from CBD gummies. 


What are CBN Gummies?

CBN gummies are gummies made by infusing cannabinol cannabinoid. Most people use full-spectrum CBN gummies because they also have additional cannabinoids like THC and CBD. However, when you’re choosing CBN isolate gummies, there won’t be any extra cannabinoids. 

Most of these CBN gummies come with certification analysis to ensure the users that the gummies are safe to use. Well, if you’re using these, it is advisable that you buy the CBN gummies from professionals only. Moreover, you can also check the certificate to determine if there are additional cannabinoids or not. 

What are CBD Gummies?

As the name suggests, CBD gummies are made by infusing CBD. These are edible candies that contain cannabidiol oil. One of the best aspects of enjoying these CBD gummies is that they’re available in a wide range of flavors, shapes and CBD concentration. It’s often the flavor that provides different colors to the candies.

  1. Effect on Body

Both CBN gummies and CBD gummies tend to have a relaxing impact on the body. However, CBN gummies may have a milder impact when taken in limited quantities and will not cause any kind of irritation. On the other hand, overdosing on CBD gummies will lead you to feeling uneasy and nauseous.
