What is THCV? Meet The Energizer Bunny Of Cannabis

Looking for that midday energy boost without the jitters? Tired of relying on caffeine to get you going for the day? Fear not friends, there’s a perfect new cannabinoid kid on the block that can help with that.

Biologically, we as humans rely heavily on a series of metabolic processes to create energy to achieve the tasks and goals we set for ourselves throughout the day, but sometimes even with healthy habits, we just feel a little…bleh. Enter THCV, a minor cannabinoid with a major kick! This energy-providing powerhouse wants nothing more than to help you feel your absolute best so that you can take on ANYTHING life throws your way. 

Now let’s talk a little bit more about THCV!

What is THCV?

Not to be confused with its similarly named cousin, it is NOT THC! THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is a naturally occurring minor cannabinoid found predominantly in rare sativa phenotypes of hemp and cannabis plants known as “landraces”.

THCV has been shown to help produce a naturally uplifting effect that can help regulate the production of energy within the body due to its ability to help regulate the metabolism of glucose and user reports note an increased feeling of energy, euphoria and, focus during consumption.

THCV has shown it may have benefits as an appetite suppressant – hence why it’s popularly known as “diet THC”.

Overall, through preliminary research, THCV is showing great promise in having positive medicinal properties for a variety of areas for overall health and wellness, such as possibly benefits with:

  • Up-regulating energy metabolism
  • Suppressing appetite 
  • Decreasing signs of inflammation and inflammatory pain
  • Stimulating bone growth
  • Reducing panic attacks and anxiety
  • Inhibiting negative effects of THC (increased heart rate, intoxication, memory impairment)

More research on THCV will come with time, but the abilities of this cannabinoid seem to be boundless. Dare to try something new today?
