\nShort for Cannabichromene, CBC is a cannabinoid, where you have not heard much about it yet. It is rarely studied by scientists (especially in comparison to CBD and THC). But that does not mean that CBC has nothing to offer. On the contrary, it has a whole series of effects discovered by the small researches.WHAT IS CBC?CBC is an important cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp. It is non-psychoactive.Similar to THC and CBD Flowers, CBC is produced in its crude form with CBG, the cannabinoid we discussed in our last article. As hemp grows, enzymes in the CBG-A plant convert to CBD-A, THC-A and CBC-A - the crude forms of these cannabinoids. Each will then undergo CBD, THC and CBC by decarboxylation (a process in which the cannabinoids are heated to activate them).As mentioned, not much research has been done with CBC, but what has been done has first positive results. Below are all the features that the science of CBC has uncovered.CBC has been found to reduce swelling and inflammation of the intestinal tract in animal studies. It has also been found that it can have a supplement to the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD without activation of endocannabinoid receptors within the body.Research has found that CBC is able to combat pain perception by acting on paths within the spine. It is theorized, this is especially effective when used in conjunction with CBD-Cannabidiol.Research conducted by the University of Mississippi found that CBC showed anti-depressant-like qualities in rats, suggesting that it was partially explained with other cannabinoids - the apparent mood that enhances the properties of cannabis. Just like CBC that is currently unknown and needs further investigation.One of the more unusual properties of CBC is its ability to cause neurogenesis - the creation of new brain cells in the hippocampus area of the brain. Similar to all CBC examinations, the examinations are still in the early days and require more thorough work.Another very interesting feature of CBC has been studied by a team of Japanese researchers studying the effect of cannabinoids on cancer. CBC was found to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in mice.So, as you can see, despite the lack of attention it gets, CBC has a lot of potential. All of these effects work hand-in-hand with other cannabinoids to strengthen and enhance each other, known as the wake-up effect. Much more research is needed to discover the real potential of CBC, and hopefully the intriguing research that is already being done will lay the groundwork for more. Either way things look good for CBC.
