New Product Launch: Bliss Synergy CBC & CBD Oil Tincture
For nearly a decade, adults of all ages have been using hemp-derived CBD to help support various aspects of physical health and emotional well-being. Based on the results of nearly 2000 survey respondents, most report positive results for pain, stiffness, and inflammation after physical activity, better sleep, and relaxation. An impressive 89% report that CBD helps calm their minds, and 88% also feel their hemp-derived products help with mild or temporary anxiety. Some prefer the effects of using CBD on its own, while others eventually gravitate towards products made with ingredients selected to help fine-tune the overall effects of their tinctures, softgels, topicals, and gummies.
CBDistillery® was one of the first companies to launch a selection of full spectrum products made with enhanced concentrations of CBG (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol). Over time, our expert botanists expanded our product line to include an impressive assortment of enticing options made with CBDA, THC, and functional supplements. The most recent addition to the Synergy Collection by CBDistillery® is a tincture made with 600mg of CBD and 300mg of CBC (cannabichromene). Once you know what CBC is and how it works, it's easy to see why you might want to consider adding our new Bliss Synergy CBC & CBD Oil Tincture to your health and wellness routine.
What Is CBC?
Hemp-derived CBC (cannabichromene) is one of more than 113 cannabinoids produced in the plant. It was first identified in 1966 and does not cause intoxication (Stone et al., 2020). Although the cannabinoid is not as well-known as CBD (cannabidiol) or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), at least not yet, it has the same origins. All three cannabinoids are created through the interaction of natural plant enzymes with the first cannabinoid produced in the plant, CBGA (cannabigerolic acid), the "mother" of all cannabinoids. As crops mature, heat and sunlight convert CBDA, CBGA, THCA, and CBCA to their non-acidic, active forms, CBD, CBG, THC, and CBC (Lewis et al., 2017). By the time the plants are harvested and their oil extracted and distilled, a detailed analysis will typically reveal ample amounts of CBD but only small amounts of THC, CBG, and CBC. But that in no way minimizes CBC's importance. Each of the many minor cannabinoids in hemp extract contribute to the overall effect of hemp-derived CBD products, but in different ways (Komarnytsky et al., 2021).
Why Did CBDistillery® Botanists Combine CBC and Full Spectrum CBD?
Hemp-derived cannabinoids work by interacting with multiple molecular targets throughout your body and brain (Elsaid & Foll, 2020), including the receptors of a previously unknown regulatory system identified in the early 1990s, your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Based on information obtained through decades of research, plant-derived cannabinoids interact with many of the same receptors as the two ECS messengers produced as needed in your body, the endocannabinoids 2-arachidonoylglycerol and anandamide (Pertwee, 2014). Cannabis researchers believe plant-derived cannabinoids help support ECS function in a way that promotes homeostasis, the type of internal balance all living organisms need to survive (Sallaberry & Astern, 2018). Although every CBD user's situation is unique, many feel the effects of full spectrum products are stronger than similar options made with broad spectrum extracts or CBD isolate because of the way each of the many minor cannabinoids and plant terpenes work together to magnify the impact of each active component. It's a property cannabis is known for called the “Entourage Effect” (Nahler et al., 2019).
CBD's impact on ECS receptors also has the potential to increase the amount of anandamide circulating in your system (de Almeida & Devi, 2020). This essential ECS messenger is linked to the feeling of temporary bliss known in many circles as a "runner's high" (Stiebers et al., 2022). Since the small amount of CBC in high-quality full spectrum hemp extract contributes to that effect, our expert botanists added just enough hemp-derived CBC to achieve a 1:2 CBC to CBD ratio, a combination that works in synergy to enhance the benefits of both. Thanks to their efforts, we're launching a finely-tuned product that could be just what you need to help elevate your mood and lift your spirits. We think you'll also look forward to starting your day with its natural orange flavor.
Do I Have to Stop Using My Current Favorites to Try the New Bliss Synergy Tincture?
You don't have to stop using your favorite products to experience everything this most recent addition has to offer. Although our new Bliss Synergy CBC & CBD Oil Tincture could easily replace just about any type of hemp-derive CBD product you're using for daily ECS support, you might prefer to continue with your usual routine while keeping a bottle in reserve for times you might be feeling gloomy or out of sorts. But you may not want to start with a full serving. When using any hemp-derived product for the first time, we generally recommend starting low and going slow. Once you know how your system responds, increase your serving sizes gradually over time. Ideally, you'll want to use the smallest serving size that delivers the effect you're hoping for. The fluid form and bulbed dropper make it easy to adjust as needed.
Since the product is easy to measure (and delicious), we suggest shaking the bottle, measuring a partial dropper, and holding the orange-flavored tincture beneath your tongue for 45-60 seconds before swallowing. Whether you choose to take advantage of the combined effects of CBC & CBD daily or as needed, you can keep using any topicals you might be using after a tough workout or your favorite gummies to ensure you're getting the deep, restorative sleep you need to wake feeling refreshed. Based on the results of our internal survey, most customers using multiple products daily feel CBD is more effective than when they were using one product alone.
