Understanding CBC and the Benefits It Offers
The term cannabinoids has become more well-known in recent years, particularly THC and CBD. However, there may be some lesser-known cannabinoids that can provide you with some great benefits, too. Cannabichromene (CBC) is one of those cannabinoids. It was discovered more than half a century ago and like other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, it comes from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA).
Although CBC might not get as much attention as some of the other cannabinoids, it still holds a lot of promise and can be found in a wide range of products today. Take some time to get to know CBC a bit better, and then consider all the products we offer that could be just what you need. Many people today are opting for CBC tinctures, CBC capsules, and soft gels.
Of course, before you choose to use CBC, it’s a good idea to learn more about what it is and the purported benefits it can offer.
What Is CBC?
CBC is nonintoxicating, so those who take products containing CBC for the health benefits will not have to worry about getting the euphoric high associated with THC. It doesn’t provide the intoxicating feeling because it does not bond well with the CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Regardless, CBC does plenty of other things quite well.
For example, it does bind well with other receptors in the body. This includes the vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV), which is sometimes called the third cannabinoid receptor. It can also interact with the receptor ankyrin 1 (TRPA1). Both of those are linked to the perception of pain. Therefore, many are using CBC as a means to help reduce feelings of pain in ways similar to traditional painkillers, such as NSAIDs.
However, CBC has the benefit of not having the harmful side effects that some people might experience when using other types of painkillers.
Researchers have found that CBC can work well when paired with other types of cannabinoids, such as CBD. When looking for CBC products, check to see whether they have any other cannabinoids in them and check the benefits of those cannabinoids. This can give you a better sense of what the product could do for you.
Benefits of CBC
Below are some of the benefits most commonly associated with CBC. These are some of the benefits that have been found thus far. More research is being done with CBD, CBC, and other cannabinoids, which will help to expand knowledge on how it can be used to help with a range of health issues.
Pain Reduction and Anti-inflammation
Many are opting to use CBC capsules to help them with feelings of pain and associated inflammation. It’s helpful for many types of pain, including the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, which can often be difficult for people to control. As mentioned, it doesn’t have the negative side effects associated with NSAIDs and other medications.
Consider some of the common types of negative effects that NSAIDs can cause. In some, they can cause stomach pain and stomach ulcers. When taking something like aspirin, it can thin the blood, and you may find that you bleed more. Some suffer from headaches and dizziness, ringing in the ears, problems with the liver and kidneys, and high blood pressure. Certain individuals may also have allergies to NSAIDs, which can cause rashes, wheezing, and swelling in the throat.
When you instead opt for something like a CBD and CBC tincture, you will not have these side effects. CBC doesn’t have these negative side effects. However, this does not mean that it is right for everyone.
The product is not intended for children who are under 18 years old. Additionally, you should not take it if you are pregnant, lactating, suffering from another medical condition, or if you are taking other medications. As always, you should consult a doctor before you try any new product.
Stimulation of Brain Growth
When combined with other cannabinoids, such as CBD, it could help to reduce the effects of inflammation even further. You will find several products we offer that combine these two cannabinoids to great effect.
A study from 2013 found that CBC could also have a positive effect on neural stem progenitor cells. These cells are essential to the brain and its ability to function properly. It could have the ability to help increase the viability of developing brain cells and stimulate brain growth.
Antimicrobial and Antiviral
Research has shown that CBC has strong antibacterial properties against a range of types of bacteria including acid-fast, gram-positive, and gram-negative bacteria. It can also provide some help against fungi, as well as viruses.
CBC and other cannabinoids have been shown to help fight depression. It is believed that CBC could be one of the contributing elements that help to create the mood-elevating properties found with cannabis. However, it doesn’t activate the same pathways in the brain that THC does. Those who suffer from depression may find that the use of CBC capsules or other products could help them.
CBC could be a powerful cancer fighter. Researchers feel that this could be due to the way that CBC interacts with the anandamide, the body’s natural endocannabinoid. There is evidence that it could also help to reduce the uptake of anandamide, which means it will remain in the bloodstream longer.
Studies in mice have shown that cannabinoids could be effective in inhibiting not only the inflammation often associated with cancer, but also tumor growth. It affects the CB1 and CB2 receptors and could fight against breast cancer in humans.
Do you suffer from migraines? This can be a debilitating problem that is far more than just a headache. Migraines can cause problems with work, your social life, and your overall wellbeing. When a migraine hits, people are often unable to do anything until it passes. This can be a major problem, of course. However, CBC has been shown to work as a remedy for migraines in some people.
Research has shown that CBD has an effect on acne. The researchers then looked into other cannabinoids, including CBC, to see if they had a similar effect. They found that CBC worked well to help inhibit acne. This was in part due to the anti-inflammatory properties of CBC. They also discovered that CBC could help to suppress the lipid production that was occurring in the sebaceous glands. Furthermore, CBC reduces the arachidonic acid in the body, which is needed for lipogenesis, which contributes to acne.
Although the research in this area is still in its infancy, it does provide some hope that CBC could eventually become a go-to anti-acne treatment for those who need it.
A Lot of Promise with CBC
CBC is proving to be a powerful cannabinoid with a wealth of potential benefits, particularly when combined with other cannabinoids. It could be a good option to consider. You will find that we offer a range of quality products that include CBC that could help you with a range of issues. Check out some of the products and find what might work well for your needs.
Options to Consider for CBC
There is a range of options available for those interested in trying CBC products. Let’s look closer at these options to see what they offer.
RELAX CBD + CBC Softgels 750 mg
If you are looking for a product that can help you to relieve your stress, then RELAX CBD + CBC soft gels will be a good option. It is suggested that you take one of the CBD and CBC soft gels per day with food and water.
This formula not only helps to relieve stress, but also enhances the brain and could help to improve memory and focus. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.
This product is nano-amplified, which helps to increase bioavailability. It gets to work quickly, and you will not need to consume as much of the product to get the same effects. Essentially, you are getting more for less. It features 660 mg of active CBD and 90 mg of active CBC per bottle.
This product also includes terpenes and adaptogens. The adaptogens added to the product include Ashwagandha and Lion’s Mane.
The Lion’s Mane is added to help support mental performance. This is a nootropic that is only recently getting attention in Western medicine, but has been a part of Japanese and Chinese medicine for centuries.
Ashwagandha is used to help with stress and anxiety reduction. It’s been known to have effects similar to CBC, since it can help to fight depression. It has also been shown to boost brain function and to boost fertility and testosterone.
Terpenes found in the product include peppermint, spearmint, alpha terpineol, beta-caryophyllene, limonene, linalool, myrcene, terpinolene, nerolidol, borneol, phytol, citronellol, alpha-pinene, alpha-terpinene, and gamma-terpinene.
RELAX CBD + CBC Tincture 1000 mg
You will find that this product has similar features and benefits as the CBC soft gels mentioned above. The product is aimed at those who are looking for focus and stress relief. It also includes the Lion’s Mane, Ashwagandha, and the same terpenes from the CBC soft gel product. However, there are a couple of differences.
This is a 1000 mg tincture with 900 mg active CBD and 100 mg active CBC per bottle. It has 30 servings. We suggest that you use between one half to one full dropper of the formula once a day. One full dropper is about 1ml. There is 30 ml in the bottle, so the product should last for 30 days, unless you are taking half-full droppers. Shake well before using the product. You should place the CBC tincture under your tongue and let it sit for 30 seconds before swallowing.
The tincture can go to work fast and can provide improved focus, memory, stress relief, anti-anxiety, and anti-inflammatory benefits expected from a product with CBD and CBC. As with the CBD + CBC soft gels, this has been nano-amplified, so it will get to work quickly, and so your body will absorb more of it.
