Cannabis is not just about CBD and THC, arguably the most popular cannabinoid compounds. Another cannabinoid, known as Cannabichromene (CBC), is an extremely non-intoxicating, versatile secondary cannabis product found in hemp and cannabis.

Uses of CBC

One can use CBC to manufacture tincture oils and an array of other hemp-based therapeutic products, such as edibles and cartridges.

You can also use CBC to enhance your mental health and neurogenesis, and eradicate pain. While the benefits of CBC are widely written about, there’s scant evidence of its efficacy.

Composition of CBC

When you think of CBC oil, think of full-spectrum hemp plant extracts.  Next, throw in THC of less than 0.3% and you have your CBC oil. Almost similar to CBD oil, CBC oil comes in tincture form within a specific volume, which is measured in milligrams. CBC oil is used by many brands to add value to their products.

A secondary cannabinoid, CBC works on your body’s ECS (endocannabinoid system) as a CB2 receptor agonist. There is, however, no conclusive evidence on CBC’s interactions with the CB1 receptor, but, just like CBD, it can interact with TRP cation channels.


If you are looking for the best CBC products, tinctures are what you need. They are also the most convenient to use and help you get the maximum benefit from CBC oil. Besides the full spectrum hemp extracts, CBC oil also contains seed oil from organic virgin hemp. It’s a great solution for lifting one’s mood and acting on skin conditions such as breakouts and acne.

There is no conclusive evidence about the benefits of CBC oil. Granted, it has great results and benefits, and ECS provides you with wholesome health.  However, it is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before you consume CBC oil, especially if you are on other drugs.
