CBDP vs CBT vs CBC: What’s The Difference?

Let's see what these three minor cannabinoids can do for you. Created with Spyglass Wellness.

You might be confused by all the different cannabinoids that sound so similar they’ll have you going through a loop. ‘

In this article, we’ll be dissecting three that have been becoming more popular in the era of cannabis innovation: CBDP, CBT, and CBC.

Keep reading to find out what makes each one unique, and make sure to check out Spyglass Wellness’ tinctures if you want to try any of the three.

What Is CBDP?

In 2019, an Italian group of researchers discovered TCHP, thought to be up to 30 times stronger than regular THC and leading to the discovery of its non-psychoactive sibling CBDP.

Although most research has been done on THCP, we can confidently say that it has helped the cannabis world maneuver the potential effects and benefits of CBDP. They’re known as phytocannabinoids, which means they mimic the behavior of chemicals that are already naturally occurring in the human body. 

So far, research is discovering promising results: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure properties that can help a whole spectrum of people better their lives.

What Is CBT?

First isolated in 1974 from Lebanese hashish, CBT is a phytocannabinoid that has made its mark in the cannabis world since slowly becoming more popularized.

Most commonly found in hemp, it’s often extracted to add to existing CBD products to provide a smooth entourage effect.

The jury is still out on this one as more research trickles in.

Still, initial reports suggest that CBT is great for combating neurological issues and mental health problems by alleviating the stress caused by anxiety, reducing painful thoughts brought on by depression, and kicking insomnia to the curb.

What Is CBC?

CBC (cannabichromene) has long been considered one of the “big six” cannabinoids that have been thoroughly researched over the years (and by years, we mean decades: it was discovered over 50 years ago).

Just like THC and CBD, CBC stems from cannabigerol acid (CBGA).

Just like the other cannabinoids we’ve mentioned throughout this article, CBC is non-psychoactive and won’t give you the high that THC does because it doesn’t entirely bind to the CB1 receptors in your brain but doesn’t sleep on its benefits.

When consumed, it activates other receptors and increases the release of the body’s natural endocannabinoids and anandamide.

Like other cannabinoids, it’s most commonly used with CBD to create an entourage effect and elevate the experience for its users.

It has been shown to help relieve cancer symptoms, block pain and inflammation, aid the neurological system, suppress pesky acne, and bring peace to our friends battling depression.

  • CBDP: anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure properties.
  • CBDT: relief for anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
  • CBC: relief of cancer symptoms, pain-blocking, anti-inflammatory, and neurological benefits.


  • CBDP: THCP is up to 30 times stronger than regular THC, leading us to believe that the same can be applied to the non-psychoactive CBDP.
  • CBT: we can’t say for sure how potent it is, but studies suggest it’s similar to CBD.
  • CBC: similar to CBD, but with the entourage effect can be more potent and bring its benefits to the forefront.


  • CBDP: because of its potency, a little goes a long way. You can find CBDP-infused products with dosages varying so you can decide which best suits your specific needs.
  • CBT: you probably won’t find many CBT-specific products on the market yet, but check the labels on CBT-infused CBD products to check the dosages.
  • CBC: most CBC products on the market currently offer doses anywhere from 300-1800mg, so it’s all up to you!
