What is CBC?

Another new cannabinoid?! What is CBC?

Well, let's talk about it...

CBC is a minor cannabinoid - a compound found in the cannabis plant, just like THC is. However, it does differ from its cannabinoid cousin in a few, important ways.

THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive or "high" feeling from using cannabis. The most common effects felt are euphoria and relaxation.

CBC, cannabichromene, is one of the "Big 6 Cannabinoids." CBC is found in the early stages of the cannabis maturation cycle, stemming from the all important CBG. It is known for its mood boosting and euphoric effects.

CBC acts on unique receptors in the brain to support the activity of the endocannabinoid "anandamide" - the bliss molecule. The word "anandamide" is partially derived from the sanskrit word "ananda," meaning bliss, or happiness.

THC + CBC work together much like THC + CBD do, by creating a synergistic effect.

The energizing effects of CBC in combination with THC and terpenes found in Sativa strains may create a more blissful experience than THC alone.

This combination may be particularly useful for carefree adventures.

Long story short...

It's a little like a hot air balloon for your mood.
