CBC oil, or Cannabichromene oil to be precise, is a common cannabinoid from Hemp plants which is manufactured into a liquid substance using full-spectrum extracts. CBC itself was first discovered in 1966 but it is only recently that significant research has been carried out to determine what exactly this cannabinoid does.
As a reminder, phytocannabinoids – such as Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabigerol (CBG) among others – are found naturally in the leaves and flowers (also known as “aerial parts”) of hemp. While CBD happens to be one of the best known and most studied cannabinoids found in plants (phytocannabinoids), scientists continue to discover more of them. So far, they’ve identified around 100 distinct cannabinoids.
What is CBC?
Research shows that Cannabichromene (CBC ) binds to the ECS as well as other receptor sites including TRPV1 and TRPA1, both of which are linked to pain perception. When CBC oil activates these receptors, increased levels of the body’s natural endocannabinoids like anandamide are released. Studies show full spectrum CBC oil may support the body’s natural regeneration of nerve cells known as neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs). NSPCs are essential for the repair of damaged nerve cells and healthy brain function.
As versatile as CBC oil is, you don’t have to wait to be in chronic pain or experience a chronic illness before using it. CBC oil for pain management can be used preventatively as well as therapeutically. Have an ache, cut, or bruise? Take a drop or two from your favorite broad or full spectrum CBD oil and gently apply it to the area.
CBC oil may also help balance skin inflammation such as the kind seen with acne.
How will CBC make me feel and how long does it take to work?
The short answer to both of these questions is the same as it is for CBD, “It depends.”
It depends on many factors such as the starting point of your body’s systems, as well as the concentration of CBC you’re using. The bottom line is that CBC may affect everyone a little differently and work gradually over time.
