What is CBC?

What is CBC?

Cannabichromene or CBC is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. When CBGA is decarboxylated, it becomes CBCA or Cannabichromene acid and eventually converts into CBC. CBC is thought to be one of the most commonly occurring non-psychoactive cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. Like other cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, CBC continues to be studied.

What does CBC do and how does it work?

We talk a lot about cannabinoids and the body's Endocannabinoid System, including CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBC is unique because it binds to different receptors, including the Vanilloid receptor 1, also known as TRPV1, and the Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 (TRPA1).

In addition, there are several other research directions regarding CBC. One thing we know for sure: CBC contributes to the entourage effect that consumers experience when consuming cannabis. The entourage effect refers to the theory that all cannabinoids work together to create a unique effect in the body.

Where can CBC be found?

Generally, CBC can be available as part of a Full-Spectrum CBD Product. This means that several different cannabinoids are working together. Strains that cannabis experts should be asked about include Birthday Bubble Cake Reg. and Jorge's Diamonds #1.
