What is CBC?

CBC stands for cannabichromene — it’s the third most abundant cannabinoid in most cannabis plants. In hemp plants, it’s the second most abundant cannabinoid.

This cannabinoid is present in higher concentrations in hemp plants exposed to strong sunlight or artificial lighting. This cannabinoid is produced in response to light stress.

The effects of CBC are very similar to CBD — offering anti-inflammatory, sedative, and antidepressant effects.

Some studies suggest CBC may have even greater anti-anxiety benefits from CBD, but more research is needed in this area to understand this effect in greater detail.

The benefits of CBC include:

  • Anti-anxiety
  • Antidepressant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Sedative (mild)
