CBD, CBG, and CBN are here to stay. These cannabinoids have gone mainstream—good for everything from muscle cramps and workout recovery to depression and insomnia. Heck, you can even fill your mattress with hemp fiber or “wipe away your worries” with hemp toilet paper.
Remarkably, one of the lesser-known cannabinoids, cannabichromene (CBC), is showing promise in the fight against cancer. CBC has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties, like the other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, but the great hope is its potential to fight the growth of cancer cells.
Research on CBC is ongoing, and the future looks bright. CBC-dominant products can be hard to find, but we dug deep, interviewed experts, and read consumer reviews to find the best CBC-rich options available today.

What is CBC?
“Per recent research, CBC is shown to inhibit the uptake of anandamide—an endocannabinoid, a cannabinoid made inside our body—which seems to promote the killing off of cancer cells,” says Dr. John S. Boccella, DC, co-owner of The Hemp Company.
Clarence McSwain, a licensed hemp farmer and owner of The Hemptender Dispensary, says, “By itself, there have been promising results with neurological diseases, acne, and early research has shown it to have a substantially higher anti-depressant effect than CBD.”
With very few CBC-dominant hemp strains and CBC-rich products on the market, look for “full-spectrum” or “broad-spectrum” tinctures that contain CBC. High-quality extracts from cannabinoid-rich plants will produce oil that maximizes the healing effects of the so-called “entourage effect,” the combined synergistic effect of all the cannabinoids working in tandem.
Scientists are still determining why the body benefits from a smattering of all the cannabinoids working together, as opposed to consuming isolated doses of each individual cannabinoid. Even powerhouse CBD has shown to be more effective with the full complement of the other cannabinoids.
Our body’s endocannabinoid systems are all unique, so it’s a good bet to combine cannabinoids to maximize the therapeutic benefit of hemp oil. In other words, cover your bases until scientists, medical doctors, and pharmaceutical companies determine which specific cannabinoids are effective for which ailments and at what doses for the genetic makeup specific populations. Anecdotal evidence is strong that full/broad-spectrum products containing CBC are effective.
“It can’t be a coincidence that all of our top-selling smokable hemp strains happen to contain CBC,” says McSwain.
