Cannabichromanone (CBCN) is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant, and it belongs to the 2,2-dimethyl-1-benzopyrans class of organic compounds.
It is more nonpolar than THC, which may reduce the compounds ability to interact with the CB1 recpetor.
Cannabichromanone D is an analog of the primary compound, and it’s molecular arrangement shows promise when it comes to its potential in becoming a bioactive compound. This is because three out of four molecular models called pharmacophores demonstrate they may have enough energy to elicit receptor activation.
6a-R-cannabichromanone B is considered a metabolite of cannabis, noted by https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsomega.9b02663, as are 6a-R-cannabichromanone C and 6a-R-cannabichromanone D.
At the time of writing, very little is known about this cannabinoid, though it has shown promise with mile antimalerial and moderate antileishmanial activity.
The chemical formula for Cannabichomanone is C20H28O4.
