DYK that CBC Can Make Your Brain GROW

A picture of a flower in two states indicates a visual representation of your brain vs. your brain on cannabis.Although most people are now aware of marijuana cannabinoids THC and CBD, very few are aware of a compound in marijuana called cannabichromene (CBC).

That’s disappointing, because cannabichromene is actually the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana, which means there is likely more CBC in your cannabis than CBD – even though CBD is at present getting all the attention.

However, there has been relevant research over the decades that highlight a number of reasons why you should take notice of this non-psychoactive compound.  The following are a few health benefits of CBC:

1. Fights Bacteria and Fungi

One of the earliest studies involving cannabichromene was published in 1981 by the University of Mississippi.  In the study, researchers found that CBC exhibited quite strong antibacterial effects on a variety of differing types of bacteria (including E. coli and staph).

Finding a natural medicinal alternative for bacterial infections as well as poisonous molds would seemingly be of paramount importance.

2. Anti-inflammatory Properties

CBC interestingly appears to curb inflammation without activating cannabinoid receptors. This may explain why CBC produces a stronger anti-inflammatory effect when combined with other cannabinoids like THC.

The entourage effect for marijuana is factual – you do actually need the whole plant (bud)!

3. Relieves Pain

As CBC and CBD are both non-psychoactive, clinical physicians as well as scientists are hopeful that these cannabis compounds will soon be used to treat pain.

Out take is why use anything else but marijuana for general pain management.

4. Fights Depression

A more recent study straight from Federal-funded marijuana research recognized a significant antidepressant effect of cannabichromene; ultimately concluding that CBC along with a number of other cannabinoids may “contribute to the overall mood-elevating properties of cannabis.”

Again, the overall implications of the whole-flower entourage effect can be ignored no further!

5. Stimulates Brain Growth

Here’s the whopper … yes, I think I should partake in that which makes my gray matter expand!

The latest research on CBC highlighted that it may actually help your brain grow. In particular, CBC increases the capability of developing brain cells – a process known as neurogenesis.  While cannabichromene’s ability to promote neurogenesis is a very recent finding, some emerging studies suggest THC and CBD will also do the same.

Contrary to popular belief, neurogenesis doesn’t stop once you reach a certain age. However, it only occurs in a specific part of the adult brain called the hippocampus; which is important for memory and learning.  A lack of growth in this area is believed to contribute to a number of disorders, including depression and Alzheimer’s.

As Dr. Xia Jiang of the University of Saskatchewan – one of the first scientists to uncover this remarkable effect of marijuana – explained in an interview with Science Daily:

“Most ‘drugs of abuse’ suppress neurogenesis. Only marijuana promotes neurogenesis.”

Opiates, alcohol, nicotine, and cocaine are all known to inhibit brain growth.

Thankfully, CBC and other chemicals in marijuana seem to have the opposite effect.
