Oakland, California. Nov. 1, 2020 – NUG (the “Company” or “NUG”) a leading vertically integrated California producer of cannabis concentrates, edibles, and flower, is pleased to introduce the first-ever verified inhalable CBN product line to the California legal cannabis market. The new CBN product line will consist of the first-ever CBN/THCA Sugar and CBN/THCA Infused Pre-Roll.

“The team at NUG takes access to the highest quality recreation and relief for our customers very seriously. Finding a way to isolate CBN and gain the benefits of rest and focus from this compound was a long road for NUG lab. I’m so proud of the innovation and work the team put into formulating and testing these products. Their commitment to excellence for our customers really shines, especially in moments like these.” said Ted Whitney, Director of Operations at NUG.

NUG’s world-class cannabis extraction team at (“the Lab” or “NUG lab”), has been working on developing these products for the last two years and is thrilled to finally be able to bring them to the California consumer at scale. Led by NUG Lab’s, Purification Lab Manager, Joel Reiss, the Lab was able to successfully create the purification process that produces this new cannabinoid (CBN) isolate. “CBN isolate is so new to our team we don’t even fully understand how it affects our own bodies,” said Joel Reiss. Very few entities have isolated this compound and brought it to market and none as a verified inhalable product. NUG’s internal unofficial trials have yielded positive reviews and NUG is very excited to start sharing CBNs effects with their customers.

Alissa Berihu, Director of Product Development at NUG, has parlayed the success of NUG’s diamond-infused pre-rolls and dabbable concentrates into two new items for their fans, CBN infused sugar and a CBN and THCa infused pre-rolls. “Staying centered and getting enough rest can be a challenge while balancing work and family life. I am passionate about seeking out natural solutions and am excited to share these plant-derived pathways to deeper rest and relaxation. I hope everyone loves these new products as much as we do!”


CBN is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, typically found in small quantities in the flower you’re already smoking. It’s been implicated in providing a more relaxing high and promoting healthy, deep sleep. Our lab has worked for the last 18 months on a way to produce very pure CBN for our products and we’re very excited to announce that we got the job done! In playing with this cannabinoid we found that our results were best when CBN was mixed with THC and even further enhanced by other terpines. This knowledge lead us to creating the first inhalable CBN focused products in California. We added pure CBN isolate to whole flower, fresh frozen extract for our “Silk Pajamas” GG4 Live Resin and to our all flower infused pre roll for a very relaxing, full body high that will set up restorative rest or a very introspective session for anyone in need. We’re so excited to share these products with people looking for better recreation and relief. We hope to hear your feedback soon!

Cannabinol, or CBN, is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is derived from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa). Along with many other benefits, preliminary CBN research has indicated it to be an effective sleep aid prolonging sleep time, especially when combined with THC.[1]


For years, THC and terpene-rich concentrates have redefined what it means to experience cannabis. Realizing that two is generally better than one, NUG is pushing the game forward again with our new CBN/THCA ‘Silk Pajamas’ GG4 Sugar. To make it, we’ve combined the mouth-coating flavor of our GG4 terp sauce with our THCA/CBN isolate. We have created a dab
that is deeply flavorful, ridiculously strong, and undeniably relaxing.


There are times when you want to take a little puff, and there are times when you want to get
undeniably and immovably stoned. When it’s time to take it there, NUG’s ‘Silk Pajamas’ GG4 Pre-Roll is designed to get you where you’re going. We start with a bed of our in-house cultivated GG4, a strain already known for high potency and heavy effects. Then we blend it with our THCA/CBN isolate to deliver an undeniably powerful, full-body stone every time.
