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.

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.
