WHAT IS CBC?
Cannabichromene (CBC) is the third most common cannabinoid. Not much is known about CBC, except that it works mainly on lessening inflammation. CBC is stemmed from CBCA, which is broken down from CBGA. When CBCA is exposed to heat and UV light, it dries and cures to become CBC.
WHAT ABOUT RESEARCH?
There isn’t an abundant amount of research on CBC, but it is believed that CBC is a non-psychoactive, meaning that it does not give a “head high”. The University of Mississippi did a stress test on rats and found that the rats did better while using CBC. Another study, done by J Clin Pharmacol, found that CBC has incredible anti-bacterial properties.
HOW DOES CBC WORK?
CBC works on six different cannabinoid receptors. These include: CB1 and GRP18 (brain), CB2, GPR55, TRPV1 (bones), CB1 and GRP18 (vascular system), CB1, CB2, and TRPA1 (liver), CB1 (lungs), and CB1, TRPA1 (muscles).
