What is THCv? A guide to the FAQ about THCv

Relaxed, Clear-headed, Supposedly the "Anti Marijuana"...

some people call it "Diet Weed". But what exactly is THCv and why have you been seeing it popping up in so many cannabis products lately? In this blog post, we'll answer your most asked questions about THCv and how it might be useful in your daily wellness routine. 

What is THCv?

THCv, also known as tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), is one of over 100 compounds found naturally in the cannabis plant that belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids.

THCv has recently sparked widespread interest due to its reported clear-headed, focused, yet relaxed effects it has on the consumer.

Will THCv get me high?

THCv has been called a "non-intoxicating" cannabinoid which means that it does not produce psychoactive effects like those associated with THC. While you may not feel high from it, there are still many benefits to be obtained from this compound.

What does THCv feel like?

It's hard to put into words what exactly the experience feels like because people have different endocannabinoid systems and therefore react differently to cannabis products. What works for one person may not work for another.

Will THCv help me lose weight?

In some places, we've seen THCv dubbed "diet weed", or the "anti Marijuana" compound, due to its unique properties that counter the typical feelings of being "stoned" or "having the munchies".

THCv is a potent anti-inflammatory and appetite suppressant with many benefits for people who want to lose weight while still enjoying cannabis.

How much THCv should I take?

We want to stress the importance of first checking in with a Doctor if you have any medication or health concerns. We also recommend trying various methods of consumption such as smokable, vaping, edibles, gummies, etc. at different serving sizes while tracking each amount in a notes app or a regular piece of paper works fine too.


Where can I find quality THCv products I can trust?

According to the online pharmacy giant GoodRX the best way to find quality products is the following:

"Verifying a product's Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is important when looking for a high-quality product. Third-party laboratories produce CoAs to ensure that CBD products are safe and properly labeled. All reputable CBD companies provide batch-specific lab results, which you can usually find on the company's website."

We think that is great advice and Kultivate Wellness proudly offers all lab reports from the manufacturer as well as our own, to each and every product we sell!

THCv is an interesting compound that can be found in certain strains of marijuana. It's been shown to be a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that helps patients with chronic pain and inflammation. THCv is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which studies suggest may help with muscle spasms and other chronic painful symptoms.

The effects of THCv have been described by consumers as being similar to those of THC, but without any psychoactive effects. This makes THCv perfect for anyone looking for clear-headed relief without any sedation, munchies, or otherwise 'adverse' effects that often come from consuming THC products.
