What is CBC - Cannabichromene

Cannabichromene, also known as CBC, is one of many active components in the cannabis plant called cannabinoids. CBC is non-intoxicating and is used for many health benefits.

Research has shown CBC may be helpful in treating:


Acne  -  CBC is able to fight acne thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to slow the production of lipids by the sebaceous glands. One study concluded that "CBC, CBDV and especially THCV show promise to become highly efficient, novel anti-acne agents."

Depression  -  CBC has antidepressant properties when working with cannabinoids THC and CBD thanks to the entourage effect. A study done on mice found that CBC had antidepressant effects on the animals.

Pain & Inflammation  -  Just like CBD, CBC helps to block pain and decrease inflammation. CBC has fewer side-effects compared to NSAIDS. The potency of CBCs effects for pain and inflammation increases when used in conjunction with THC.

Cancer   -   CBC is able to increase the levels of anandamide, a cannabinoid made in the body. Anandamide is able to fight breast cancer. Additionally, CBC and other cannabinoids are able to slow the growth of cancer cells.

Brain Function  -  CBC helps cells necessary for homeostasis in the brain. In an in vitro study of mouse brain cells, CBC had a positive impact. The cells studied were neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs) which are needed for brain function.
