THCV stands for tetrahydrocannabivarin, which is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is structurally similar to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound in cannabis that is responsible for the “high” feeling.


THCV is known for its potential therapeutic effects, which include appetite suppression, anxiety relief, and possible treatment of diabetes and metabolic disorders. It has also been studied for its potential as an anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsant.


It is important to note that THCV is found in relatively low concentrations in most cannabis strains, and its effects can vary depending on the dose and other factors. Additionally, THCV is not widely researched, so much of its potential benefits and drawbacks remain unclear.
