Health Benefits Of CBC (Cannabichromene)


CBC doesn’t get a lot of praise nor attention as it’s brothers THC or CBD, but it has shown to have great medicinal benefits. Very few patients are aware of a compound in marijuana called cannabichromene. However, and according to Halent Labs, a top lab-testing facility, it is believed to inhibit inflammation and pain. In addition, it is believed to stimulate bone growth. Still not impressed? Let us put it this way – even though after THC it was CBD that got all the attention, but CBC is actually the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana, which means there is likely more CBC in your cannabis than CBD! One of the most intriguing findings about cannabichromene is its relationship with cancer.

CBC Boosts THC

Researchers are convinced that hat CBC’s primary purpose is to enhance the effects of THC. Apparently, elevated CBC levels will make a high-THC strain of cannabis even more potent. CBC provides patients with pain relief that is believed to be the result of interplay with THC. The theory is that CBC’s ability to fight pain is derived from its role in increasing THC’s pain relieving properties. Besides, CBC provides sedative effect, inhibits inflammation, and helps the body establish homeostasis (balance). Some fascinating recent research has shown that this cannabinoid has an anti-depressant effect that is 10 times greater than that of its more popular sibling CBD.

CBC Might Be The Cancer Killer

Based on the way CBD interacts with an endocannabinoid called anandamide, researchers are starting to think that it may be a tool in the fight against cancer. Anandamine aka The Molecule Of Extreme Pleasure Anandamide is a molecule which acts as a neurotransmitter, and which has a structure very similar to that of THC. It is an essential fatty acid neurotransmitter – a messenger molecule produced by the human body that plays a role in many bodily activities, including appetite, memory, pain, depression, and fertility. It has also been found to reduce colorectal cancer and breast cancer.

CBC Stimulates Brain Growth

According to the latest research on CBC, it may actually help your brain grow. This is probably the most fascinating benefit of this compound. Apparently, it increases the viability of developing brain cells – a process known as neurogenesis. You must have heard somewhere that your brain stops growing once you reach a certain age. Well, neurogenesis doesn’t stop; it continues to occur in a specific part of the adult brain called the hippocampus, which is the portion of the brain that plays important role in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation. A lack of growth in this area of the brain is believed to be correlated with a number of disorders, including depression and Alzheimer’s. While CBD’s mind blowing ability to promote neurogenesis is a very recent finding, previous studies have shown that THC and CBD can do the same. Apparently, most drugs that people abuse are actually suppressing brain growth. Marijuana is the only one that promotes it!
