Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a powerful, non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it will not cause a patient to feel “high.” CBC, like THC and CBD, has been shown to encourage the human brain to grow by increasing the viability of developing brain cells in a process known as neurogenesis. CBC plays a significant role in the anti-cancer and anti-tumor capabilities of cannabis.
CBC battles inflammation by activating the CB2 receptor. However, because it does not activate CB1, the healing potential of CBC could be enhanced when combined with cannabinoids that do, such as THC
Effects and Benefits
Research has shown that CBC is effective in the treatment of a variety of symptoms and conditions. Examples of conditions for which CBC is particularly effective in providing symptom relief are listed below:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Crohn’s disease
- Chronic post-operative pain
