CBC – Cannabichromene
What is it?
Cannabichromene, or CBC as it is commonly referred to, is a cannabinoid that is considered to be the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana. While it is commonly found, CBC has a limited amount of uses, therefore lowering its popularity as a singular extract. CBC also uniquely does not come into contact with CB1 or CB2 receptors as other cannabinoids do, but does interact with TRPV1 and TRPA1, allowing for various medical benefits to occur.
What does CBC Treat?
While the ailments treated through CBC are limited, the effects of taking CBC are effective and possess some unique healing powers. The main use of CBC is for neurological development, in which CBC encourages growth, and therefore functionality, of brain cells. Some of the other uses for CBC are:
· Pain relief(highly effective)
· Anti-bacterial(acne treatment)
Where Can I Find CBC?
As CBC is highly abundant within marijuana, the easiest place to find CBC is through marijuana flower. While smoking marijuana would mean ingesting THC as well, you will find ample amounts of CBC in this way as well. Additionally, there are several topical creams available that allow for skin treatment with CBC. CBC can also be ingested through baked goods or vaporized, just as THC would.
