Cannabichromene (CBC) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Generally found in the tropical strain of cannabis, it possesses robust anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Recent research suggests that cannabichromene inhibits the growth of cancerous tumors. CBC also binds the body’s molecular system responsible for regulating and balancing various processes.
This further raises the hope of its use to combat cancer. CBC has a range of benefits such as the ability to fight bacteria and fungus, reduce swelling and elevate your mood. It is available in various forms – cream, extract, and oil. You can use CBC cream to treat acne as it soothes the sebaceous glands of the skin that may secrete excessive oil.
While both CBC and Cannabidiol (CBD) are non-intoxicating cannabinoids, CBD has been the subject of more research. However, that is fast changing with recent discoveries pointing towards the added benefits of CBC.
