Cannabichromene (CBC)

CBC stands for cannabichromene, one of hundreds of cannabinoids found in cannabis. Cannabis produces cannabigerolic acid (CBGA): the chemical precursor of THCA, CBDA, & CBCA. Decarboxylation (activation by heat/light) then transforms them into THC, CBD, or CBC.

Research discovered CBC has antitumor & antiviral properties with heavy sedative effects. This has proved useful for treating anxiety, pain, stress, tension, and inflammation. It also shows that CBC improves THC’s pain-relieving effects.

Due to its sedative nature, it can particularly be helpful for relaxation, insomnia, C/PTSD, and severe anxiety disorders.
