Five Health Benefits of Cannabichromene

200px-Cannabichromene-skeletal.svgWhile the names THC and CBD may ring some bells, very few are aware of a compound in marijuana called cannabichromene.

One of the earliest studies involving cannabichromene was published in 1981 by the University of Mississippi.

In the study, researchers found that CBC exhibited “strong” antibacterial effects on a variety of gram-positive, gram-negative and acid-fast bacteria – including E. coli and staph (S. aureus).

CBC showed “mild to moderate” activity against different types of fungi too, including a common food contaminant known as black mold (Aspergillus niger).
