What is CBC?

The most common cannabinoids like CBD and THC are starting to be familiar things to many, but do you already know CBC? This article looks at what is CBC, or cannabis chromene.


CBC or Cannabichromene


CBC is one of the many cannabinoids found in hemp. Recently, more cannabis chromene has also been studied and its role has become better understood than before. In particular, it has been studied how CBC interacts with other cannabinoids such as With THC and CBD .

CBC differs from many other cannabinoids in that it binds less to CB receptors. Instead, cannabis chromium binds to and acts on TRPA1 and TRPV1 receptors through TRP channels. These receptors are involved in the detection of body temperature and other sensations (1).

CBC consists of CBCA


In the same way as all other cannabinoids are formed from cannabinoid acids, cannabichromene is also formed from cannabichromic acid (CBCA), which is transformed by heat and light into cannabichromene (CBC). CBCA, in turn, is synthesized CBG , or cannabigerol. The CBG is the mother of all cannabinoids, the stem cell (2).

Although cannabichromene is an important component, its quantity is quite small in hemp. Concentrations vary by variety.

CBC is contained in the hemp plant and hemp leaves.

CBC stands for Cannabichromene.


The CBC is not intoxicating


CBC is not psychotropic, meaning it is not intoxicating (3). The CBC is not found in the UN Convention on Narcotic Drugs, so cannabis chromene is a legal substance and is therefore not restricted.


Properties of cannabis chromene


Little is known about the exact properties of CBC. According to some animal studies, cannabis chromene may have antimicrobial properties, relieve pain and inflammation, and may provide relief from depression. However, more studies in humans are needed.

Researchers think that cannabichromene may also be an effective substance in the treatment of cancer due to the fact that it works together with endocannabinoids such as anandamide. It seems that the “happiness molecule” produced by the body itself the duration of action of anandamide may be longer in combination with CBC.

CBC and side effects


It is not yet known whether cannabichromene causes any significant side effects. As with other non-psychotropic cannabinoids, CBC appears to be generally well tolerated. However, more research is needed and fortunately there are coming.


Before you buy CBC products


Interested in cannabis chromene? When buying CBC products, you should first make sure that the company’s products have been tested and trusted by a third party. Check the cannabinoid profiles and any contamination for analysis. Such analyzes should be available on vendors’ websites or at least made available upon request.

How much CBD can be given to a dog?

In the same way as humans, dogs and other mammals have numerous in their bodies cannabinoids maintaining receptive receptors and maintaining body balance endocannabinoid system , which is responsible for vital tasks. On this page you will find information on how much CBD can be given to a dog. Although this instruction is made for dogs, it can also be applied to other pets (mammals).


How much CBD can be given to a dog?


There is still no official standard for dosing CBD for a dog or pet. The appropriate dosage also depends on a number of different factors, such as your dog’s weight, condition, and the CBD product you choose and its strength. For safety reasons, we always recommend starting with a small dose of 1 mg CBD for every five (5) kilograms of body weight, or 1 mg / 5 kg.


What factors determine the correct dose of CBD oil for dogs?


The three most important factors that affect how much CBD you can give your dog are the size of your dog, what condition or symptom of the dog you are trying to treat, and what kind of CBD product you are giving to your dog.


Does the size and condition of the dog affect the dosage?

Although your dog’s weight will not always correlate with how much CBD is needed, it is a good starting point for determining the appropriate dose. We therefore always recommend starting with the lowest dose of 1 mg CBD for every 5 pounds of body weight. Sometimes, however, conditions require higher doses of CBD. If your dog’s condition is more severe, you may consider a higher dose such as 2-5 mg CBD / 5 kg body weight once or several times a day as needed.

See the table below for the recommended CBD dose by weight.

Weight (kg)Amount of CBD (mg)
5 kg1 mg
5 – 11 kg1 – 3 mg
11 – 22 kg3 – 5 mg
22 – 34 kg5 – 8 mg
34 – 45 kg8 – 16 mg
45 – 68 kg16 – 33 mg
68+ kg33 mg
This instruction is not an official recommendation, so we recommend contacting your veterinarian before starting use


What is the right CBD product for a dog/pet?


In addition to CBD oils and tinctures mainly intended for humans, there are CBD products of different strengths intended for dogs and other household pets on the market. Dog CBD products most often contain fish oil or another flavoring ingredient designed to make the product easier to taste and dispense. CBD products for human use can also be given to a dog if the products do not contain ingredients that are not suitable for the dog. So always check the ingredient list of the product carefully before giving it to your pet!

In addition to the strength of a CBD product, some products, such as CBD dog treats, may be absorbed more slowly than CBD oil or tincture, in which case you may need to give your dog a slightly higher dose to achieve the same effect.

If you plan to use CBD oil to care for your dog, you will often find clear instructions in the product on how many drops contain the desired amount of CBD.

For example, if a 5% CBD oil bottle contains 200 drops and contains a total of 500 mg of CBD, then one drop contains about 2.5 mg of CBD. If you wish, you can mix one drop with the food and, if necessary, divide it into several more portions, so that you can start using it with the lowest possible dosage.

Once you notice the results you want in your dog, such as calmer behavior, you can continue with the same dosage. However, if you do not notice a large change after several days, you can increase the dose slowly and gradually until you see the desired effects.


Can I give my dog too much CBD?


There have been many studies on CBD showing that CBD is well tolerated, even at very high doses and reasonable doses there is virtually no risk of overdose. However, we recommend that you consult a qualified veterinarian before use.

When you buy CBD products for your dog, always check with the seller, its quality and that it really contains CBD. Although CBD products are not intoxicating, they may still contain very small amounts of THC. Remember that legally CBD oil products must contain no more than 0.2% THC, which is well below the amount needed to produce psychoactive, ie intoxicating, effects.




Determining and testing the correct dose of CBD for your dog may take some time and require monitoring. Always take your dog’s/pet’s weight and condition into account, and get your CBD product from a reliable seller.
