While CBD and THC are commonly understood as cannabinoids, many people are still learning about the other Cannabinoids that the cannabis plant has to offer. Let’s go over a cannabinoid known as CBC.
What is CBC?
Similar to THC and CBD, CBC, or Cannabichromene, comes from Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). While CBC doesn’t get a lot of attention, what has been found through research shows that benefits are promising. It is non-intoxicating and works synergistically with other cannabinoids and plant compounds to induce the entourage effect.
CBC is used for the treatment of anxiety, pain relief, stress, and inflammation. It fights inflammation without activating any of the endocannabinoid receptors in the body.
CBC has been shown to work effectively as an anti-depressant. It works in conjunction with THC and CBD to deliver mood-boosting properties. This is partially due to the fact that CBC activates certain receptors in the nervous system. Activating these certain receptors increases endocannabinoids in the body, such as anandamide.
According to research, CBC has effective anti-tumor and anti-viral properties.
CBC has been demonstrated that it improves the pain-relieving effects of THC.
