What is THCV?
In a previous post we talked about THC. If you’re a Cannaseur, an alzheimers patient seeking a new type of relief, or even an athlete looking to lose weight and recover, THCV is yet another cannabinoid that is starting to display some interesting benefits.
What is THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin)?
THCV is tetrahydrocannabivarin (tetra-hydro-canna-biv-arin.) It has a similar molecular structure and psychoactive property base as THC, but yields completely different effects. As a weight loss supplement, THCV can help suppress appetite. It is able to do this by blocking some of the CB1 and CB2 receptors from attaching to the THC, meaning it can put a huge damper on the munchies. This could be a huge advantage to those who struggle with diabetes, or are trying to cut weight for a competition. Studies have also found that THCV can reduce body weight by reducing glucose intolerance and increasing energy.
For other medical patients struggling with panic attacks, it can help to curve the attack without suppressing your emotion, so you won’t get zombied! For older patients, THCV can also aid in Alzheimer’s by improving tremors, motor control and brain lesions, and more research is still under way!
THCV can be found abundantly in Sativas (see previous post for What does Sativa mean info) especially landrace strains like Durban Poison. If you’re shopping for THCV, you can also ask around for isolations of the THCV cannabinoid, in products like tinctures and oils. Comment below for answers to your #cannaquestions! 🤙🌿❤
