4 Health Benefits of Taking the CBC and Delta-8 Tincture
Over the last decade, as the use of cannabinoids has become more popular, a growing body of research has indicated to the many diverse and profound health benefits of these plant-derived compounds.
In the past, these derivatives were typically smoked. Due to the tobacco often consumed in parallel, and the smoke you ended up breathing in, this wasn’t particularly good for you, so the health benefits of the cannabinoids were often counteracted by the drawbacks.
However, cannabinoids such as as CBC and Delta-8 (THC) can be quickly and safely consumed with tinctures: liquid solutions containing the cannabinoid compounds, which you can drop under your tongue, swallow directly or even put on your food or drink.
With this in mind, here are 4 health benefits you can expect to gain from the CBC and Delta-8 tincture:
CBC is thought to reduce inflammation and pain.
In contrast to many other cannabinoids, which mainly bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors involved with improving mood, sleep and the function of immune and gastrointestinal system – CBC also binds with the TRPA1 and TRPV1 receptors in our bodies.
These receptors are involved with causing bodily inflammation and, in the long term, its thought that CBC’s interaction with TRPA1 and TRPV1 may reduce inflammation overall – including inflammation associated with chronic pain or skin inflammations such as acne – and even reduce our sensitivity to pain over time.
May support nerve regeneration.
Some studies have shown that CBC aids the development of nerve regeneration, supporting nerve cells called neural stem progenitor cells.
These are self-renewing cells essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system – especially maintaining the function and health of the brain. Healthy neural stem progenitor cells are thought to protect against neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers.
Research suggests cannabis derivatives are anti-cancer.
In some of the most respected scientific journals, such as Nature, research has detailed the potential anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids; it’s even stated on the Cancer Research website that the charity is funding research into the use of cannabinoids as anti-cancer drugs.
While there isn’t enough research to say definitively that cannabis derived compounds are anti-cancer, the results so far – towards cancers such as breast, lung, pancreatic, prostate and even brain tumors – has been very promising.
Reduced anxiety and improved mood.
In addition to getting the incredible ‘high’ from psychoactive compounds such as Delta-8, combining this with other cannabinoids such as CBC can help to counteract the less pleasant side effects of THC, such as anxiety and paranoia, which can trigger mental health problems.
Moreover, anecdotally, numerous people have used Delta-8 and CBC to manage their anxiety day-to-day – and the science supports this, with certain cannabinoids thought to reduce the effect of psychoactive compounds on receptors that trigger anxiety.
