    Scientific background

    Cannabichromene (CBC) is a member of the cannabinoids, compounds derived from a diterpene structure origin of the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa, and particularly abundant in freshly harvested dry-type Cannabis material. These compounds have been used for over a 1000 years as medicinal agents for the relief of pain, as well as for recreational purposes1.

    CBC is a major non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid that inhibits endocannabinoid inactivation and activates the transient receptor potential ankyrin-1 (TRPA1) channels and enzymes of the endocannabinoid system. In addition, it also acts as a TRPM8 antagonist.

    CBC selectively reduces inflammation-induced hypermotility in vivo independently from cannabinoid receptors or TRPA11,2.

    Several studies have demonstrated that CBC exerts antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antidepressant-like activity in rodents and has the ability to normalize in vivo intestinal motility in an experimental model of intestinal inflammation3.

    Cannabichromene potency tested induced TRPA1-mediated Ca2+ elevation showed efficacy of EC50 of 90 nM1.
