Cannabichromene (CBC), discovered in 1966, is the third most abundant cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant, behind CBD and THC. However, CBC remains opaque and little understood.
We also know that CBC interacts with other cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBG, and CBN. This contribution to the entourage change makes CBC a particularly versatile cannabinoid worthy of future studies. Continue reading to learn more about what CBC isolate is used for and other essential information.
What is CBC?
Cannabichromene (CBC) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid present in marijuana plants. When CBGA is decarboxylated, it transforms into CBCA, or cannabichromenic acid, and then into CBC. CBC cannabinoid is thought to be among the most prevalent non-psychoactive in the marijuana plant. Like other cannabinoids present in cannabis plants, CBC is still being researched.
What is CBC Isolate?
CBC isolate is the purest form of CBC. CBC isolate, unlike other isolates, is a liquid or oil. All extraneous plant debris and components, like cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and many others, are removed during the extraction process, leaving only pure CBC concentrate. To increase the combined effects of the entourage effect, CBC isolate can be mixed with other hemp or cannabis goods.
CBC Isolate Extraction
CBC extraction is the same as CBD extraction, only done with cannabichromene-rich hemp. Firstly, producers use CO2 to extract raw hemp oil from plant material. It is then removed from undesired plant elements (winterized) and heated to eliminate the carbon tail of the molecule (decarboxylated). Because hemp has significantly less CBC than CBD, extracting CBC is more difficult, and most cannabichromene formulae contain a significant quantity of CBD.
Unlike CBG, CBN, and CBD, Cannabichromene does not chemically crystallize into a powdery isolate. On the other hand, the distillate is the most concentrated form of CBC extract. Because each cannabinoid has a different boiling point, the distiller may separate cannabinoids using vacuum heat and pressure to extract a distillate. While cannabichromene distillate is the closest thing to pure CBC oil, it contains only trace amounts of other cannabinoids.
How does CBC Works?
Cannabinoids and the body’s endocannabinoid system, particularly CB1 and CB2 receptors, are frequently discussed. CBC is remarkable in its interaction with many receptors, including the vanilloid receptor 1, often known as TRPV1, and the transient receptor potential ankyrin 1. (TRPA1).
There are also various other lines of study being conducted on CBC. We know one thing for sure: CBC contributes to the entourage effect you get when you consume cannabis. The entourage effect is the hypothesis that all cannabinoids interact to provide a distinct effect in your system.
CBC is so powerful that it may be more effective than CBD as an antidepressant. In contrast to THC, CBC does not generate a euphoric high. On the other hand, CBC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the human body, including pain receptors.
