CBC

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a psychoactive non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid. It was discovered in 1964 and is the decarboxylated form of CBCa found in heated juvenile cannabis. As the plant matures, the CBC levels lower, but GW Pharmaceutical was able to develop a mutated Cannabis sativa variety that has difficulties producing THC and CBD, allowing the CBC to accumulate in higher amounts than naturally found. CBC binds to neither CB1 or CB2 receptors at standard doses, instead interacting with the capsaicin vanilloid receptor TRPV1 and the protein TRPA1. Interacting with these receptors means it can increase the levels of endocannabinoids, such as AEA and 2AG, by interfering with the natural process that degrades them. At much higher doses, those exceeding 100 mg, CBC has been shown to be a partial CB1 receptor agonist. 

How CBC Assists

CBC in particular has been shown to assist with anxiety, OCD, stress, asthma, bacterial infections, bronchitis, depression, osteoporosis, skin disorder, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and pain relief.
