What is CBC?
CBC, (Cannabichromene), is is a lesser-known cannabinoid that offers many potential benefits. Some people might not know about it because it’s not as well researched as CBD or THC, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth exploring.
Similar to CBD, CBC has been found to interact with vanilloid receptors (TRPV1) and the CB2 receptors in the immune system, which play a significant role in pain perception and the inflammatory response
Early studies suggest that CBC has neuroprotective properties to support healthy brain function.
One study found that CBC has positive effects on neural stem progenitor cells, which is important in combating neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia
CBC can help with mood management. One of the many reasons people turn to the hemp plant is for stress management.
It looks like CBC works well with other cannabinoids in supporting mood function and stress through the endocannabinoid system.
The research was conducted on rats, but the results suggest that CBC could have a similar effect on the human body when used in conjunction with CBD .
This suggests that the CBC cannabinoid plays an important role in the overall mood elevating properties of the cannabis plant.
CBC may also help against acne. Acne is caused by a buildup of sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin tissue. Sebum can block pores and trap bacteria, leading to inflammation and breakouts.
Studies suggest that CBC may help to regulate sebum production by supporting the endocannabinoid system, making it a potential treatment for acne . However, more research is needed to confirm these effects.
