This paper deals with a Cahn-Hilliard equation with variable exponent sources. By using the potential well method, we give some threshold results on existence and nonexistence of global weak solutions when initial data with energy less than the potential well depth $d$. In the former case, we also show the exponential decay properties of energy functional. We finally obtain some sufficient conditions for the global existence and non-global existence results with high energy initial data. The results of this paper extend some recent results of Han (2018) \cite{Han18} and Zhou (2019) \cite{Zhou19} to the case of PDEs with variable exponent sources.
