What is CBC?
Cannabichromene (CBC) is a lesser-known, non-psychoactive cannabinoid that holds the potential for a great deal of therapeutic and cognitive benefits. CBC was discovered over 50 years ago by Israeli Scientist Raphael Mechoulam and his colleague Dr. Yechiel Gaoni. Since, it’s considered to be amongst the “big six” out of 120+ naturally occurring compounds found in hemp. Research shows that CBC has the potential to assist with depression, harness anti-inflammatory properties, and aid patients with hypermotility. Unlike THC, CBC is nonintoxicating; however, its healing abilities are amplified when combined with other cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.
Where to buy CBC products?
While CBC is found in small concentrations in many CBD and THC products, CBC Isolates are coming soon. They will be available to purchase in Bulk and Wholesale.
How to extract CBC?
CBC, THC, and CBD all stem from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). CBGA is the beginning of a chain reaction that generates the three major cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). The specific plant enzymes cascade and “direct” the breakdown product into one of those lines. For CBC, it transforms from CBGA into CBCA, and then finally to CBC after exposure to heat or ultraviolet light.
How to use CBC?
Initially, CBC will be available to purchase as a CBC Oil or a CBC Tincture—as isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum products. Eventually, CBC will be available in the same way CBD products are sold today. These include topicals, vapes, bath bombs, etc.
What is CBC used for?
CBC’s medical potential has developed exponentially over the last 50 years. Research has found beneficial effects for patients with depression and anxiety, as CBC has be found to have anti-depressant qualities. Moreover, Cannabichromene is also used to treat pain and inflammation from arthritis, as well as promote neurogenesis. Also, a 2016 study found that CBC impedes acne growth.
