What Is CBC Exactly?

New in 2021 | CBD Basics Series


Cannabichromene (CBC)

What is CBC? It is a cannabinoid that is often overlooked when discussing the benefits of Cannabis. 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. CBC is mainly an effective Discomfortkiller. Other effects include being antibacterial and antifungal, antidepressant, and acne.


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. Most notably capsaicin receptors which are linked to Discomfort perception. 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.

CBD Origins

It gets its name from the Sanskrit word “ananda” which roughly translates to “bliss/joy.” As its name suggests it acts as a mood enhancer. Anandamide is also known by its scientific name N-arachidonoylethanolamide (AEA).

CBC’s Application and Potential

CBC is one of the main cannabinoids being studied. It is showing promise for an abundance of benefits. CBC is showing that it can alleviate:

Cannabinoid Agonist

CBC is a CB2 agonist; a drug that combines with a receptor to initiate drug actions. This means that CBC hastens the body’s use of other cannabinoids associated with the CB2 receptor. This makes it a prime example of the benefits of utilizing multiple cannabinoids for the entourage effect.

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, 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.


Is there an application for acne supplementation?

CBC, among other cannabinoids, has been shown to be a powerful inhibitor of acne. Acne is a skin disease that is characterized by oily skin causing Irritation of skin glands. To be more accurate acne is an excess of sebum production and sebaceous gland irritation.

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 acne relieving topicals.
