Frequently asked questions about our CBN oil

Cannabinol, or CBN for short, is the name of another phytocannabinoid that, unlike its related counterparts, has a special feature. Although it has its roots within the cannabis plant, it is not formed there. CBN is created through the ageing process and the external oxidation of the psychoactive cannabinoid "tetrahydrocannabinol" or THC for short. Exposure to oxygen or exposure to heat and light rays promotes the breakdown of the psychoactive effect in the process. The lower the THC content, the higher the CBN content. For this reason, cannabinol can only be found in very small quantities in fresh cannabis plants. Read more about CBN.

Cannabinoid receptors are involved in a series of processes inside the human body in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), including the regulation of mood, pain sensation, appetite, and memory. These receptors can be activated by endocannabinoids (produced by the human body) and plant cannabinoids (like those found in hemp or cannabis.

For CBN as cosmetics, the European Commission has officially registered the following functions of CBN: anti-sebum, antioxidant, skin conditioning, and skin protecting (see more in the EU CosIng database).

If you have questions about the medical application and the range of CBN products' effects, please ask your doctor or pharmacist. All statements on this website are without any guarantee of the effect.

We are not aware of any side effects of using our products.

CBN from industrial hemp grown following organic principles is generally considered very safe.

No, you won't get high or intoxicated from any of your products.

Our CBN oils and CBN products overall contain less than 0.2% THC, and it's precisely THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that is psychoactive. CBN is unable to get you high and is entirely non-psychoactive. Many customers feel relieved and relaxed after taking CBN, but they will not feel high or stoned.

You can read more about THC and its effect on the human body in this article.

Our products are not addictive.

Most new customers start out with a 500 mg (5%) or 1.000 mg (10%) concentration.

We recommend that everyone starting with CBN oils for the first time start with a low dosage for at least the first 7 days and then monitor the body and mind's reaction before increasing the dosage.

The hemp seed oil has a strong and authentic aroma. Hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the cannabis plant and has a nutty aroma, some also call it hemp oil.

Olive oil has a very mild aroma.

MCT oil is even milder than olive oil and is like a mild version of coconut oil, as is the recommended carrier oil for anyone trying our CBN oils for the first time.

Our products with MCT oil come in four aromas: natural, orange, strawberry, and vanilla.

Full-spectrum CBN products are generally considered more effective to humans and animals than broad-spectrum products as the full range of cannabinoids creates what is called 'the entourage effect.' Here you can read more about the entourage effect.

For many years people consumed CBN oil sublingually (orally) and let the drops slowly dissolve under the tongue for at least 10 minutes before swallowing it.

Since January 2019 the legislation in The European Union and Switzerland forbids any sale of CBN products as food or drinks as EFSA considers CBN a 'Novel Food'. As such, our CBN oils are not recommended for oral consumption, but for topical use.

Our CBN oil is registered as cosmetics and tested on the skin of 50 test persons in a German laboratory. 

The answer is not as simple as one might expect.

CBN oil's right dosage depends on age, body weight, how you take the CBN oil, the purity of the CBN oil if it's full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or just a CBN isolate, etc. We have written much more about it in this article. How does CBN oil work? The complete guide to understanding CBN in the human body.

Yes, our CBN oils are legal and registered in Switzerland, The European Union, and The United Kingdom.

The full-spectrum CBN oils always have a THC content of less than 0.2%. The broad-spectrum CBN oils always have a THC content lower than 0.0%, which is below the detectable level of 10 PPM. So yes, they are free of any THC.

If you order from a country that does not allow any THC, then we recommend you to choose the broad-spectrum CBN oils.

Check your local country legislation before you decide to purchase CBN products.

If you have any concerns about this issue, then we highly recommend you use our broad-spectrum CBN oils with less than 0.0% THC.

The THC concentrations in CBN oil are nowhere near enough to have any intoxicating effect on you. THC is the cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests.

These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of '11-nor-delta9-carboxy-THC (THC-COOH)'. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nanograms (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids, including CBN.

No, you cannot vape our CBN oil. These CBN oils were not produced to be heated and inhaled orally.

Check out our CBN vape products section on our website if you are looking for CBN vape oils.

Yes, you can give CBN oil to your cat, dog, horse, or bird.

However, we have developed CBN oils for animals and tested them with the University of Bologna on cats, dogs, and horses. See the CBN oils for animals here.

No, we pay all expenses, including customs fees and VAT in the European Union, when the products enter European Union from Switzerland or are shipped from our warehouses inside the European Union.

You do not need to pay any fees at all.

Why choose CBN oil from Formula Swiss?

We are a family-owned company located in the center of Switzerland in Zug.

Since 2013, we have produced organic health, cosmetics, and nutritional products of the highest quality with documented results to customers in more than 58 countries.

We produce, research, and develop hemp plants with a high yield of CBN and a full spectrum of natural cannabinoids indoor, outdoor, and greenhouses in Switzerland following organic principles, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and ISO 22716-2007. We only use organic hemp plants from Switzerland in our CBN oils.

Our hemp plants are thoroughly tested before being CO2 extracted, winterized, and decarboxylated up to 95% to improve the hemp oil's quality, potency, and effect. Our CBN RAW Oils are 65% decarboxylated to ensure a 1:2 ratio of CBNa to CBN.

Our proprietary supercritical CO2 extraction process uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract phytochemicals from the cannabis plant. Supercritical CO2 extraction is the most expensive extraction method. It is widely considered the most effective and safest hemp plant extraction method in the industry. It results in a very pure CBN oil with a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, nutrients, and antioxidants.

Our CBN oil is thoroughly tested, analyzed, and documented in Switzerland for both its cannabinoid ratio and microbiological adequacy.

The THC concentration is always less than 0.2% for our full-spectrum CBN oils and less than 0.0% for our broad-spectrum CBN oils.

To this date, we never had a single product fail a verification test in a third-party laboratory.

We publish the test results on our website and give you full transparency and traceability by showing the exact cannabinoid profile on each CBN oil packaging.

We are the following information for all our CBN oils: exact batch production number, expiry date, exact CBN content with 2-decimals, exact THC content with 2-decimals.
