CBC oil information
weed oil with CBC we call CBC oil. On this page we tell more about this new form of weed oil.
Effect of CBC Oil < /H2>
In contrast to THC, CBC is not a psychoactive substance. This means that you absolutely cannot get high from CBC oil.
How CBC works in the human body has never actually been well investigated. In 2017 they started with laboratory tests into the potential medical applications of CBC, but to date there has not yet been tested on people.
In other words: it can take years before there is scientific evidence for the supposed favorable effects of CBC (including anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, mood-enhancing).
what it means is that the use of CBC oil is primarily a matter of trying out.
What is CBC?
CBC stands for cannabichromene. CBC is created by means of a number of intermediate steps. The most important are the conversion of CBG-A into CBC-A and the conversion of CBC-A into CBC.
from CBG-A To CBC-A
There is a young cannabis plant CBG-A. When a plant grows, CBG-A is converted into, among others, CBD-A, THC-A and CBC-A. The proportions depend on the cannabis sub -species. A cannabis variant is used for the production of CBC oil with virtually no THC and with relatively many CBC and CBD.
from CBC-A to CBC
Subsequently, CBC-A is converted into CBC. This is done through decarboxylation. Decarboxylation is the heating of a certain substance, so that it turns into another substance. Decarboxylation always takes place through the course of time, but the process can be accelerated through heating.
The diagram below shows the full process.
Biosynthe Sepres from CBC
CBC oil in the body
CBC is a cannabinoid just like CBD and THC. There is a system in the human body that responds to these cannabinoids: the endocannabinoid system.
This body system consists of a number of parts including receptors that respond to a number of specific substances from the cannabis plant, such as CBD and THC. These are the B1 and B2 receptors. Then these B1 and B2 receptors influence other body systems such as the immune system, the nervous system and muscles.
Laboratory research now shows that CBC is not attached to B1 and B2 receptors. CBC is primarily an agonist for the enzyme TRPA1. CBC activates the enzyme TRPA1 and in this way starts a biochemical process.
Which biochemical reaction is that exactly and what this does in the body is currently largely unknown. As we said before: scientific research into the effects of CBC is still in its infancy.
