Biochemistry: What is Cannabichromene (CBC)
What is Cannabigerolic Acid (CBG-A)
With CBC-A, it travels by passing through the CBC synthase or through the enzymes responsible for getting the specific process underway.
In order to produce the cannabinoid known as cannabichromene (CBC), decarboxylation must occur.
What is decarboxylation?
This is potentially why vapourising using ingestion delivers these raw plant acids most efficiently. Heating cannabis increases its potency. However, exposure to extreme temperatures for a prolonged period may destroy its active chemicals.
Over time, or quickly if exposed to heat, the CBC-A will lose a molecule of CO2; at this point, it is considered CBC. This same process applies when developing THC and CBD.
