CBC FAQ

What is CBC?


Cannabichromene, also known as CBC, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid similar to CBD, or Cannabidiol. CBC can work as a powerful natural pain reliever and mood booster. Additionally, CBC doesn’t contain any THC, so it is non-psychoactive. 


The Effects of CBC


So, how does CBC make you feel? The effects of CBC vary from person to person, and your experience will be contingent on the product you are using and how you ingest it.


Here are the main benefits of CBC that users report:


- Pain relief

- Anti-inflammatory 

- Migraine relief

- Relaxation

- Relief from skin irritation


When it comes to getting your desired benefits, it’s all about picking the right product. If you’re 

Searching for pain relief or a boost in mood, consider taking CBC orally through a gummy, tincture, or vape. If you’d like relief from skin issues such as burns or irritation, a topical cream may be best, 


It’s important to note that the effects of gummies may be delayed up to 45 minutes from the time of ingestion. Tinctures work faster than edibles, but there is also a delay. If you’d rather not wait, our THC carts work by absorbing vapor into your lungs, and they are the fastest working form of CBC.


Is CBC Right For Me?


Due to the mild nature of CBC, virtually anyone above the age of 21 could benefit from its pain-relieving, mood-boosting properties. Whether you want something to help relieve a migraine or you need something to help you alleviate stress after a long day, CBC has a vast array of medicinal uses. 


CBC is also a terrific marijuana alternative. Many people who use Delta 9 THC products report experiencing some symptoms of anxiety or paranoia. CBC provides all the pain-relieving benefits of Delta 9 without the risk of inducing anxiety. If you’re someone who has tried marijuana previously for medicinal purposes and didn’t like it, then CBC might be a great substitute. 


CBC is also a great option if you would like to reap the benefits of THC, but live in a state where recreational marijuana use is still illegal. 


What is Delta 9 THC?


Delta 9 or Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is the traditional version of THC and is the active ingredient in the Marijuana plant. This cannabinoid provides the typical “high” associated with cannabis products, and it is currently federally illegal in most states in the U.S. 



What is the Difference Between Delta 9 and CBC?


The biggest difference that separates Delta 9 from CBC, is that CBC is federally legal in the United States, whereas Delta 9 is legal in some states, but federally illegal. CBC is not psychoactive like Delta 9, so it provides all the medicinal benefits of Delta 9 without getting you “high.”



What Makes CBC Different From THC?


The biggest thing that makes CBC different from THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the fact that CBC isn’t psychoactive, and therefore won’t give you the “high feeling that THC products do. However, CBC still has a multitude of beneficial medicinal qualities for many users. THC has many of the same medicinal properties as CBC but also gives users a psychoactive experience.



Is CBC Legal?


CBC is fully legal under federal law due to the 2018 Farm Bill. Also known as the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, this legislation changed the legal classification of hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity. Wording within the bill states that any cannabis derivative containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC would no longer be defined as marijuana in regards to the controlled substances act. Because CBC contains less than 0.3% of Delta 9, it is legal to produce, distribute, and sell in the United States. 


However, each state makes its own rules and regulations in regards to hemp products, and multiple states, including Utah, Rhode Island, Montana, Mississippi, Iowa, Idaho, Delaware, Colorado, Arkansas, Arizona, and Alaska, have either restricted or banned CBC. 


As long as you live in a state that has not outlawed Delta 8, you can purchase Delta 8 products online and have them shipped directly to your door. For the fastest shipping and the highest quality Delta 8 products, check out our lineup here at Elyxr.



Is It Legal to Ship CBC? 


Hemp products like CBC can safely and legally be shipped through the United States Postal Service (USPS) to most states, however, we cannot ship to multiple states that have strict hemp laws. Information on hemp laws by specific states can be found here.   




Can Anyone Purchase CBC?


There is not currently a federal minimum age requirement to purchase CBC, however, some states require consumers to be 21 years old or older to purchase cannabis products. It’s always a good idea to check your specific state’s requirements before attempting to purchase hemp products. 



Where Can I Get CBC?


If you live in a state where CBC is legal you can get this cannabinoid shipped to your home from a multitude of online stores. However, it’s important to be very selective about where you get your cannabis products from. You can ensure that you are getting high-quality hemp products if the company you are purchasing from provides a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for its products. A COA certifies that a company has conducted a thorough lab analysis on its products and that those products meet certain quality and safety standards.
