Description

Non-psychotropic cannabinoid present in cannabis, is found in quantities significantly lower than THC and CBD in modern varieties but remains one of the most abundant cannabinoids. Their structure is similar to these and they also share a chemical formula.

The enzyme CBCA-synthase transforms CBGA in CBCA which is the acid form of CBC. Cannabicromene is degraded to cannabicyclol (CBL) when subjected to heat or UV rays.
