In the era of information explosion, you must have heard about everything about the CBD, the most impressive of which is the benefits it brings to medical treatment, and the CBD is not as addictive as THC. In this country, the CBD has quickly become a substitute for many treatments and is applicable to all classes and ages. It is because of this feature that everyone now realizes that marijuana can bring health benefits and will not make people change. But you know, the CBD is just a lot of known ones that affect one of the cannabinoids in human endocannabinoid system. But this is indeed like some doctors say, CBD is indeed a very important physiological system that can maintain human health.
Like the CBD, CBC or so-called cannabichromene is a kind of cannabinoid that was relatively late to be discovered, and there are relatively few studies on it. However, a small number of studies have shown that CBC has considerable therapeutic potential and does not have any embarrassment caused by THC, a psychoactive cannabindoid in marijuana.
What is CBC?
Cannabinchromene is one of the known cannabinoids with several therapeutic capabilities. It is less popular used than THC, but it does not have the psychoactive effects we mentioned above, so cannabichromene is more available for the people who are suffering from anxiety but sensitive to high does of THC. When they use it, they can get the benefits of cannabinoid without the worry of the confounded high. Therefore, on the cannabindoid medical market, more and more products with CBC have shown up.
Differences Between CBC and CBD
So some people may ask, cannabichromene is a kind of cannabindoids that is not addictive, but where is the difference between it and the CBD? To be honest, there is no way to elaborate on the difference between any kind of cannabindoids. The great scientific community is still in its infancy in terms of the content of chemical compounds. However, it is already known that CBC, like THC and CBD, is the most researched of most components. In fact, a study back in 1981 speculated that CBC is the second most abundant compound in the plant – even more than it is closely related to the cousin CBD.
In addition, there is also a synthetic mechanism for cannbichromene. For example, it is generally believed that cannabinoids are catalyzed by proteases to produce CBCA. Technically speaking, CBCA is a cannabinoid, but whether it has an important therapeutic effect on humans, then we are not aware of it. However, once CBCA is dried over a period of time or exposed to direct heating (ie, combustion/combustion, evaporation, etc.), it may be converted to function by a process known as CBCA decarboxylation (becoming its active form) Cannabinoid CBC.
If still confused, you just need to know that cannabindoids is an active compound which has been decarboxylated from pre-cursor cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, to produce a fundamental and therapeutic numerator with plenty of benefits for humans. And now, you probably are curious of the benefits brought by CBC, keep your reading, find the answers out.
Therapeutic Benefits of CBC
The study 40 years ago has shown that CBC does have a lot of useful therapeutic effects on the human body, and as a feature that is as distinctive as the CBD, it is also very popular with no intoxicating effects. Here are the treatments that scientists have found for this cnnabinoid:
- Pain relief
Some Italian researchers indicated that cannabichromene is a good alternative to THC. Because THC is a better pain reliever, but CBC is more suitable for the people who with anxiety but can not get high amounts of THC.
A research published in 2013 suggested that CBC is helpful for neurogenesis which is the growth of new brain cells. The typical one example is the Alzheimer.
A study in 2010 found that CBC also is useful to inflammation. And it contains harmless side effects when you relive your inflammatory pain.
A study in the same year on THC for antidepressive showed that CBC is more effective on antidepressant, and it also found that to show the same properties as CBD, there are about 10 times less CBC.
Antibacterial was found in 1981, at the beginning of the study. Antifungal properties also was found at the same time, but the activity of antibacterial is stronger than atifungal which is mild to moderate.
A 2012 study concluded that cannabinoids activate the transient receptor TRPA1, which in turn regulates gastrointestinal motility and ultimately reduces hyperactive AKA diarrhea caused by inflammation.
Although there have been many studies that indicate that cannabichromene does have a close relationship with the CBD, we still need to be keenly aware of upcoming and clinical research, because it is worth noting that new information will soon appear. As a consumer, we also hope that the compound will be able to produce medical results as its “more famous” cousin.
