CBC (cannabichromene) is considered a novel cannabinoid. It is the third most abundant cannabinoid in the hemp plant after CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). The hemp plant’s CBG (cannabigerol) converts mostly into CBD. Marijuana plants mainly convert CBD to THC. Breeders now focus on strains that convert CBG into CBC.
Different Types of CBC Products
Since CBC is still a novel cannabinoid, many companies aren’t making CBC-specific products. But things are changing, and more CBC-heavy tinctures, hemp flowers, and concentrates are hitting the market.
CBC Hemp Flower
Despite not being specific hemp flowers available yet, some marijuana and hemp strains contain higher CBC content than average. These hemp flowers rarely have more than 1 or 2 percent of CBC. Cannabis breeders are currently working to improve this.
At the moment, the most common form of CBC is the form of a CBC tincture or oil. However, it is easier to make CBC products from a concentrated form. While manufacturing CBD, manufacturers end up with small amounts of CBC, CBN, THCV, or CBG extracts as byproducts to make individual oils or tinctures.
CBC, just like CBD tinctures, are available in all different potencies.
These concentrates come in isolates, meaning they contain 90-95% pure CBC. Since this cannabinoid doesn’t crystallize, it is in a thick, syrup-like extract instead of the usual crystalline or powdered version.
The concentrates can be added to a vaporizer, used in a dab rig, or eaten directly.
CBC Vapes and Cartridges
CBC Vapes and Cartridges work with the CBC Concentrates. They are just the standard 8mm replaceable vape cart filled with concentrate. They might cost more than the concentrate because of their ease of use.
CBC is entirely non-psychoactive, so you won’t feel high no matter how much you take.
