How CBC in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oils Fit Into Your Wellness Scheme

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Consult your healthcare provider before use.

We want to proclaim that it’s the season to be jolly, but considering the tragedy and angst of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, coupled with perhaps the most divisive election experienced in recent US history, and one can just as easily conclude that, for this year especially, it is more likely to be the season of excess stressed and undue pressure, what with a strained economy and limited family visitations looming for the end of the year. As we are all too well aware, under such situations, we may find our immune systems compromised, and getting a good night’s sleep can all of a sudden become a problem instead of standard practice. At Synchronicity™, we are committed to bringing as much jolliness back into the lives of our many valued customers; while recognizing that our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products are not a cure-all, let’s not forget the many benefits people enjoy through the regular use of CBD tinctures and other products, with a special focus and emphasis this time on cannabichromene, or CBC.

How CBC Is Related in the Cannabinoid Family

As more studies are performed on the amazing hemp plant (and its equally interesting cousin, the cannabis plant), researchers continue to learn more about the many cannabinoids found alongside CBD and THC, the two compounds which have received the greatest attention and detailed examination: one of these is CBC, which was discovered in the 1980s and is one of the popular “other cannabinoids” which appears in much research. You could consider THC, CBD, and CBC to be “sibling” cannabinoids since all three of them gain their start from the same progenitor, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), in the forms of THCa, CBDa, and CBCa respectively.

Similar to CBD, there are no intoxicating effects associated with CBC; however, unlike CBD, it does not bind to our CB2 receptors. This doesn’t mean that you cannot benefit from CBC, as it performs a powerful and unique function that enhances the performance and effectiveness of other compounds. Specifically, CBC appears to boast the following properties:

  • Analgesic – in a somewhat indirect manner, CBC can battle discomforts by supporting or augmenting our natural ability to control or block pain
  • Anti-Depressant – CBC is one of several cannabinoids showing promise in altering moods in a positive direction
  • Anti-Microbial – CBC has been used in alleviating both bacterial and fungal infestations
  • Anti-Proliferative – early studies are indicating the potential to inhibit cancerous growths, which opens many new avenues of research and discovery
  • Brain Growth – the possibility that CBC can stimulate neurogenesis (the process of developing new brain cells) makes this another field with a strong interest and new research arising
  • Gut Health – it seems that CBC may be able to assist in relieving intestinal inflammation, which makes it a possible alternative for natural digestive relief
  • Migraine Relief – used in combination with other natural pain-relieving ingredients, CBC appears to offer an extra boost in combating migraines

As studies concerning the power and efficacy of CBC will no doubt continue on into the future, current users are delighted at how the inclusion of CBC in our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products appears to boost the beneficial properties of other important cannabinoids, most especially CBD.

Finally, both the hemp and cannabis plants are generous in their production of CBC, which means that when you take advantage of the benefits of our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products, you get more than just CBD Oil… you are gaining from all the valuable and beneficial cannabinoids naturally teeming in high-grade hemp plants, which is gently teased from our proprietary and holistic lipid infusion process and of course includes a healthy and balanced proportion of this important CBC compound. In comparison, all too many CBD Oil manufacturers opt for harsh CO2 extraction methods, which strips out the CBD compound rather than taking a nurturing and caring approach of gleaning the fantastic and powerful phytocannabinoids and other natural ingredients from the plant. Sure, our process may take more time and involve more attention to detail, but we firmly believe that living plants have more to offer when we cultivate and harvest them with an awareness of their wellness properties. In essence, we treat our hemp plants with the respect all living beings should receive, in recognition of the incredible potential each plant offers to the human species.

Empowering CBD Effects By the Inclusion of CBC in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Products

It never hurts to remind our readers of the vast array of benefits which our customers have experienced and enjoyed, thanks to regular usage of quality Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products. Most especially, it is important to recognize how Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products are capable of taking full advantage of the entourage effect, that awesome experience where all valued cannabinoids work in concert to deliver a variety of wellness benefits. In this regard, the CBC compound serves an important need by acting as a catalyst and performing crucial secondary health measures, like diverting pain by triggering and supporting those body functions intended to mask the immediacy and discomfort of pain.

Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Benefits

As a reminder, and keeping in mind that CBC is an excellent assistant in helping CBD do its own essential tasks, here is a simple, starting list of the potential benefits so many people are enjoying when using Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil regularly:

May Ease Anxiety and Depression

Too many individuals have suffered from anxiety and depression, only to discover that heavy antidepressants can cause other problems, including severe and unmanageable side effects; it’s no wonder that so many of these people are turning to Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products for a gentler alternative which seems to deliver positive outcomes, including the presence of CBC which also shows promise as a potential and natural antidepressant.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: using our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture on a daily (or twice daily) basis can go far in helping you establish and maintain a stable state of equilibrium.

Potential Heart Health

Quite a bit of research has connected CBD to an improved heart and circulatory system, with an especial notice of its ability to reduce high blood pressure, which in turn is directly linked to fatal conditions such as heart attacks and strokes; since CBC has already earned a reputation for easing anxiety, it is a vital companion to CBD in keeping blood pressure lowered by keeping stress and anxiety at a minimum.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: a simple and effective way of ensuring you are getting an accurate and adequate amount of CBD, CBC, and other valuable cannabinoids is to take one or two of our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Capsules each day.

Possible Neuroprotective Properties

For years now, using CBD to manage epileptic seizures has been practiced, with varying degrees of success (no one treatment has shown complete effectiveness yet, but most other medications cause all sorts of other side effects, something which is rare when using CBD), while another study indicated people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease found improved sleep patterns when regularly using CBD; in both situations, the use of a Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil product will allow any beneficial properties contained in CBC to also go to work.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: people who suffer from spasms or lack of sleep will find a more relaxed body if it is regularly treated with our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Body Butter, so the skin can drink in CBD, CBC, and other helpful cannabinoids.

Shows Promise to Offset Cancer Therapy Side Effects

Anyone who has any familiarity with cancer treatments is acutely aware of the debilitating side effects a patient often experiences, most notably natural and common reactions such as nausea, pain, and vomiting; CBD has shown much promise in offsetting these side effects, while CBC has already demonstrated a unique ability to alert and awaken our own natural and internal pain inhibitors to help one cope with physical discomfort.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: those facing cancer therapy need and deserve as much TLC as possible… something which our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Aromatherapy can deliver with spa-like blends of aromatherapy combined with its True Entourage Effect.

Could Relieve Pain

Whether you are facing chronic pain, or the daily stresses of life accumulate over time and find certain muscles and joints in which to settle and cause you undue aches, there’s no need to grab aspirins when you can instead give yourself a special treat by stopping for a moment and attending to your physical needs and deficiencies; by slowing down and physically massaging or otherwise soothing sore points in your body, you send a message of care and support to your hard-working body.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: you don’t need to be a high-powered athlete to get the full benefits of our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Sports Balm (but rest assured, our top athletic clients also swear by this amazing balm!).

May Treat Acne

For those who have never suffered from acute acne, it may seem frivolous to include alleviation of acne conditions with heart disease, cancer, and depression, but those unfortunate people with a tendency towards extreme acne conditions would tell you in no uncertain terms how painful and frustrating this problem can be, affecting most sufferers both physically and emotionally; imagine the pleasure of finally enjoying smooth, clear skin which feels and looks fantastic, something which CBD apparently can accomplish in tandem with a positive skin cleansing and nourishment regimen, while the CBC compound aids in resisting bacterial and fungal build-up.

Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil Product Suggestion: perhaps your best line of attack in managing and preventing acne conditions is with combined daily use of our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Facial Cream and our health-infusing and youth-inspiring Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Youth Serum.

Under Consideration

Based upon early and positive findings in so many fields of health and well-being, it should come as no surprise that research in many new areas is cropping up regularly, with lots of new promising results possibly appearing on the not-too-distant horizon, including

    • Possibly Antipsychotic – initial studies using CBD with patients facing schizophrenia and other mental illnesses are already suggesting it may help in reducing psychotic symptoms
    • May Be Anti-Tumor – both test-tube and animal studies are showing exciting results in combating and even eliminating tumors, while other animal studies have shown CBD preventing the spread of various cancers, including brain, breast, colon, and lung cancers
    • Could Prevent Diabetes – giving CBD to diabetic mice has reduced the disease by more than 50% while also successfully lowering inflammation, a condition that may contribute to cancerous growths
    • Might Aid Substance Abuse Management – the opioid crisis, along with non-prescription addictive drugs like heroin and cocaine, creates thousands of new addicts every year, but CBD studies are showing the potential to modify those brain circuits related to drug addiction
Father pushes son on bike

In all of these cases mentioned above, we remain convinced that using high-quality products made with Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil offers the common consumer the best opportunity for taking full advantage of any potential health effects found in CBD and its many related cannabinoid family members, including its often-overlooked sibling, CBC.

Hemp Oil vs. Medical Marijuana: What’s The Difference?

Over the past decade, medical marijuana has grown from a small industry into one of the fastest-growing markets in the United States. As of April 2017, marijuana has been approved for use in 29 out of 50 states, with a large audience of regular consumers across the country.

Hemp oil, a similar but fundamentally different product, has also grown massively in popularity in the past decade. In fact, analysts predict that sales of hemp oil and similar products could reach as much as $1.15 billion by the end of 2020.

Because of these similarities, many people assume that medical marijuana and hemp oil are the same things. However, while medical marijuana and hemp oil share some common elements, the two products are fundamentally different in a number of ways.

Below, we’ve listed several key ways in which medical marijuana and hemp oil are different, from their psychoactive effects (or lack thereof) to their availability and legal status.

Medical marijuana contains THC

The biggest difference between medical marijuana and hemp oil is that medical marijuana has large amounts of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, while hemp oil contains either no THC or tiny, trace amounts of the substance.

Tetrahydrocannabinol is the key active psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, responsible for the “high” that users feel after smoking, vaporizing or eating marijuana. As well as its psychoactive effects, THC has a number of physical effects, including several health benefits.

THC also causes several side effects, ranging from bloodshot, red eyes to tiredness, hunger, dry mouth, and others.

While most cannabis is rich in THC, the hemp used to create hemp oil generally contains either no THC or very small amounts of the substance. Hemp oil is instead rich in other phytocannabinoids that have their own range of health benefits.

Oil produced from hemp is legal

Although medical marijuana is legal in 29 states (as of 2017), it’s still illegal in many parts of the country. This means that you risk breaking the law if you use medical marijuana in a state that’s yet to legalize it as a treatment.

Hemp oil, on the other hand, is manufactured from hemp instead of conventional marijuana cannabis and it is legal in all 50 states if the following 2 criteria are met: (1) the hemp plant is grown in a state where hemp is legal, and (2) the processing of hemp oil was conducted in a state where it is legal to process.

It’s important to qualify this statement. The oil that’s manufactured using hemp and has a zero or low THC content is legal across the country. However, oil made using marijuana cannabis may not be legal in all states.

This means that users of hemp oil can travel without worrying about breaking the law by using hemp oil for sale from Synchronicity. Since hemp oil contains either no THC or small traces of THC that don’t violate any laws, it’s safe to travel throughout the country while carrying hemp products.

Hemp oil has different health benefits than THC

Finally, phytocannabinoids, the active ingredients in hemp oil, have a different range of health benefits to tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient found in most medical marijuana.

Phytocannabinoids are linked to improvements in the symptoms of stress and tension, as well as a range of other emotional conditions.  They’re also considered a potential health and wellness aid for a vast range of challenges – physical, mental & emotional – that people navigate every day.

In short, while other phytocannabinoids and THC come from similar plants, they have different health effects and a distinct set of unique benefits.
