What Is CBC Exactly?

New in 2021 | CBD Basics Series

Cannabichromene (CBC)

What is CBC? It is a cannabinoid that is often overlooked. But CBC plays an important role in the effects of Cannabis on the body. In certain strands, it is the second most abundant cannabinoid. It will not get you high because it is not psychoactive either. 

How CBC Effects the Body

CBC is non-intoxicating; It will not make you “high.” CBC primarily binds to the CB2 receptor of the endocannabinoid system. But CBC does bind with other receptors in the body. When CBC activates these receptors, the body increased levels of endocannabinoids such as anandamide.


What the heck is Anandamide?

Anandamide is a neurotransmitter and cannabinoid-receptor binding agent that functions as a signal messenger for CB receptors located in the body. Our bodies produce anandamide on-demand to make micro-adjustments for homeostasis.

Homeostasis is the purpose of Cannabinoid intake

Anandamide primarily does this by acting as a regulator for Irritation and neuron signaling. CBC on its own is beneficial. However, CBC is showing a lot of promise when combined with CBD. They boost each other’s effects, such as short term relief, in what is known as the entourage effect. What is CBC in entourage with other cannabinoids is an interesting question.


CBC Origins

It gets its name from the Sanskrit word “ananda” which roughly translates to “bliss/joy.” . Anandamide is also known by its scientific name N-arachidonoylethanolamide (AEA).

CBC and the Entourage Effect

The simplest comparison to the entourage effect is a rock band. The same music can sound dramatically different when played by one rock band versus the sound of another. What is CBC’s role in concert with Cannabinoids? Science will tell us eventually.

Pharmaceutical companies may have taken notice

In recent years, known US pharma companies have taken notice of minor cannabinoids and advancements within their various study. What is CBC according to big pharma? We may know the answer sooner than we could imagine.


What does the research say?

Research has found that CBC exhibits powerful anti-inflammatory properties while also suppressing excessive lipid production in the sebaceous glands. In addition, CBC also reduced levels of arachidonic acid which is needed to create lipogenesis. All of which is showing CBC to be a potential powerhouse for topicals.
