It’s almost impossible to keep up with all of the cannabinoids on the market, especially those that consumers and scientists are just discovering, but one of the most promising is Cannabichromene, or CBC. Similar to CBD, CBC’s properties are non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating and offer some broad health-benefits when consumed. CBC, however, is not a DEA scheduled compound, meaning that it can be used in consumable goods and cosmetics if created with the appropriate regulatory requirements. It’s a powerful compound with potential, like that of CBD, to change the way we think about medicine. So, how does CBC affect human physiology?
When we discuss the physiological effects of cannabinoids, we’re primarily concerned with the body’s response to two receptors: CB1 and CB2. Both CB1 and CB2 function in the peripheral nervous system, but CB2 is also found in the immune system. A recent study found that CBC binds to CB2 rather than CB1, making the compound successful in modulating immune system response and reducing pain. In short, CBC has immense potential to deliver effective pain relief, especially when combined with other cannabinoids like CBD. Other studies of CBC suggest that it may be successful in treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), glaucoma, neurobehavioral disorders, and cancer. Read more about CBC’s physiological effects here.
This is a powerful compound with massive potential. Here’s why you should be excited about it:
CBC is still relatively new. Compared to other compounds like CBD and THC, the industry is behind on learning about the properties and effects of CBC. Thus far, the future of this cannabinoid is positive and as we learn more about it, more industry professionals will begin to clamor to position themselves as pioneers of CBC. Botanical Solutions is already ahead of the curve. Our CBC is produced to greater than 95% purity via a proprietary synthetic process that is nearly identical to the naturally occurring biosynthetic process.
The Botanical Solutions facility and extraction team offers efficient solutions and industrial-scale processing for a variety of needs. With a processing capacity of 15,000 pounds of biomass per 24 hours, we can scale and tailor solutions based on your needs. We constantly upgrade extraction equipment to offer the best services to our partners at an affordable price point.
Customers should anticipate a lead time of up to 90 days when they request CBC products. Any additional questions about CBC or any of our other products can be directed to our National Sales Manager, Bret at firstname.lastname@example.org.
