Relief Formula CBC Softgel Capsules
What is CBC?
Cannabichromene is one of the major phytocannabinoids that is pretty much underrated. Regardless of the limited research, CBC has shown potential in pain relief, mood enhancement, and
CBC for Inflammation and Pain
CBC interacts with receptor sites like TRPV1, which play a role in inflammation and pain sensitivity. These receptors can be found on many other cells aside from taste buds, including nerve cells. They are sensitive to stimuli like heat, acidity, pressure, and other irritants.
CBC promotes the production of endocannabinoids and the reduction of inflammatory substances, it can significantly help in moderating pain and inflammation experienced by patients.
CBC for Mood
Just like most cannabinoids used for mental health treatments, CBC has also demonstrated potential mood-elevating properties. This has been demonstrated by a study that examined the antidepressant-like actions of CBC taken along with CBD and THC together which can “contribute to the overall mood-elevating properties of cannabis.” (3)
CBC for Neuroprotection
Studies suggest that CBC has neuroprotective properties that may help to stimulate neurogenesis (production of new neurons) in crucial parts of the brain. It is essential in preventing neurodegenerative diseases later in life.
A 2013 study examined how CBC promoted the viability of adult neural stem progenitor cells which are a vital part of the brain (4). These cells convert into astroglial cells which handle the passage of neurotransmitters in the brain and the nervous system. In return, these cells prevent the risks of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions.

CBC vs CBD: What’s the Difference?
While CBC and CBD almost share the same benefits, there are still a lot of things that set them apart. One of which is that CBD has been widely studied for its potential neurological benefits, while CBC still lacks research.
Another difference is CBC’s interaction with TRPV1 receptors. Although CBD also interacts with TRPV1, CBC shows almost an equal rapport for TRPV1 and 5-HT1A receptors, both of which play a role in neuropathic pain. This shows that CBC appears to be more effective for inflammatory pain relief.
What also sets them apart is the fact that CBC is a cannabinoid that is still emerging as one of the popular cannabinoids in the market. Whereas, CBD remains just as prevalent, if not more so than THC.
Regardless of their differences, it’s important to note that CBD and CBC have more in common than not. Since CBC and CBD have mutual benefits for one another, it will make more sense to take them both as part of the entourage effect, than to choose between them.
