Cannabinoid Series (Ch. 7) – Cannabichromene (CBC)

A lesser known cannabinoid but one that still plays an important role is Cannabichromene or CBC.

The folks over at Leafly.com did a fantastic job discussing this cannabinoid (if you don’t have time to read the article, be sure to watch the one-minute video here).

A few notables from the article:

▶️Because it binds poorly to CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain, CBC is non-intoxicating. However, it does bind with other receptors in the body, particularly those linked to pain perception. Research shows that when CBC activates these receptors, increased levels of the body’s natural endocannabinoids like anandamide are released.

▶️While CBC definitely has singular benefits, researchers also think that it seems to synergistically work with other cannabinoids, a term known as the entourage effect.

▶️CBC in combination with THC had significant anti-inflammatory response in a recent animal study; together, the two cannabinoids produced a much greater effect on inflammation than by themselves.

▶️Research has shown that CBC may be a powerful inhibitor of acne.

▶️CBC appears to work in conjunction with both THC and CBD to deliver a trifecta of antidepressant properties.

👉 After CBD, CBC is the most prevalent cannabinoid in Kentucky Hemp Works CBD Drops.
