Cannabicyclol, also known as CBL, is a minor cannabinoid that was discovered in cannabis plants back in 1964. Despite being present in small amounts, not much is known about this elusive compound. However, research indicates that CBL is more commonly found in cannabis strains that contain higher levels of cannabichromene (CBC). It is considered a “photochemical product” as it is formed when cannabichromene undergoes decarboxylation, a process triggered by heat, light, or acidic conditions.

One crucial aspect of CBL is that it lacks a double bond in its molecular structure, resulting in the absence of any psychoactive effects. As a result, CBL does not induce any intoxication.
