CBC, or cannabichromene, is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Like other cannabinoids, CBC is thought to interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating a wide range of physiological processes, including pain, mood, and appetite.
CBC is considered to be non-psychoactive and does not produce the "high" associated with THC. It is showing to have a number of potential therapeutic properties. Research suggests that it has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-depressant properties. It has also been found to have the potential to inhibit cancer cell growth in some studies.
CBC has also been found to have a synergy effect when combined with other cannabinoids, it enhances the effects of other compounds, like CBD, and CBG. When combined with THC, it may reduce some of the negative side effects associated with THC such as anxiety, paranoia and cognitive impairment.
Like other minor cannabinoids, CBC is found in small quantities in most cannabis strains, it's usually found in strains that are bred to have high CBD and low THC. It's important to note that CBC products are largely unregulated and there's still a lot that we don't know about its effects and potential risks. As always, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor before trying anything new.
