CBC also known as "Cannabichromene" CBC is one of the cannabinoids found in marijuana/hemp. While it’s considered a minor cannabinoid because it’s not typically found in concentrations of over 1%, CBC is one of the “big six”. First discovered in 1966, the non-psychoactive compound is responsible for a slew of useful functions – both when used alone and when combined with other cannabinoids.
CBC has the same origins as CBD does in that it stems from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA).
CBC is a closely related compound that’s starting to become more popular as a supplement. This unique cannabinoid has been shown to offer a variety of unique health benefits. It’s shown promise as an anticancer agent, painkiller, and neuroprotective agent.
Some studies have even shown CBC could be a more effective antidepressant than CBD.
