Cannabichromene known a little better by its acronym CBC, but still many people are not aware of this cannabinod. Most likely because it is found predominantly in the early flowering stage of the cannabis plant. However, It is the cannabinod that fathers the rest of the better known cannabinods such has THC and CBD; during latter stages of flowering.
Some recent studies are showing that CBC has anti-proliferative effect meaning it inhibits the growth of tumors. It has also been shown to have an anti inflammatory and analgesic (pain reliving) properties. It works well by it self but tend to work better with other cannabinoids like THC and CBD; giving a synergistic component making the endocannabinod system work more efficiently.
With CBC found most in the early stages of flowering that CBC also has one of the strongest antibiotic and anti-fungal properties out of the rest of the cannabinods. This is most likely because it is trying to protect the plant while it is still in its early stages.

This segment of my blog is to talk about Canabinoids and there are many of them. In fact right now known to scientist there have been over 85 different canabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. This number keeps growing as science improves only a few years ago science was saying there was 60 different canabinoids.
Okay your asking your self so what, or why do I care. This is simple canabinoids are only found in two places naturally in this world. Besides cannabis the only other place that canabinods are found are in Humans and animals. When found inside humans and animals the canabinods are called endo-canabinods. Simply meaning inside cannabis that comes from inside us. Our Bodies Naturally produces different kinds of canabinoids to help protect your body and keep it running smoothly. This is why when an external source of canabinods are used there is positive medical effects to doing this. To get canabinods into your body you can use cannabis or get a synthetically manufactured canabinod- THC. This synthetic drug called Marinol. So you may be asking why not just take the pill? Well there are many components to cannabis like terpenes and flavonoids that have medical effects as well. Along with many different kinds of canabinods besides THC that help people with different medical issues. All of these different parts of the cannabis plant work together to be a more effective drug to fight different aliments than the lab produced drug has been able to do.
Since Canabinods is such a broad topic I am going to cover each of the main canabinods separately. Also look for up coming blogs about terpenes and flavonoids as well.
