Cannabichromene (CBC) is a cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant. It bears structural similarity to the other natural cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol, tetrahydrocannabivarin, cannabidiol, and cannabinol, among others. Evidence has suggested that it may play a role in the anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effects of cannabis, and may contribute to the overall analgesic effects of medical cannabis. A study done in March 2010 showed that CBC along with cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol have antidepressant effects. Another study showed that CBC helps promote neurogenesis.
CBC is known to interact with many receptors in the brain. Many people know that the cannabinoids interact with the CB1 Receptor and CB2 receptors, but they also interact with others. CBC in particular is known to interact with the TRPV1 and TRPA1 receptors as well, which results in some of its medicinal properties.
