I admit it: keeping up with all the new cannabinoids is getting a bit difficult. In fact, none of these cannabinoids are “new” per se, as they’ve always existed in marijuana, which means we’ve all ingested them to some degree, but now they’re figuring out how to produce and isolate cannabinoids. specific. , and this is the “novelty” of all this. Concretely, in our last blog, I told you everything about CBN (read it HERE if you missed it), and this week I’ll be talking about THCV, or Tetrahydrocannabivarin.
And again, I have to drop a few disclaimers: first, I’m not a doctor. The Greenery does not employ any doctors. As such, we are not qualified to give you medical advice, and if you would like to try THCV for any condition, please speak to your doctor. Second, there haven’t been enough peer-reviewed studies published on THCV for me to tell you definitively what this stuff does, so I can’t tell you how THCV can help you for sure; honesty is the best policy.
That being said, there are a few studies that shed light on rare cannabinoids, such as THIS Article 2020 published in The Journal of Cannabis Research. In it, the researchers claim that THCV “decreases appetite, increases satiety, and regulates metabolism,” but it’s important to know that this study was done on rats, not humans, so I can’t still not embracing in good conscience the possibility that these same effects apply to people.
Really, if you think about it, it’s easy to see why it’s so important to make factual statements about something like THCV. Consider what he could be able do – suppress appetite, increase metabolism – these things are exactly what dieters are looking for, and they’ll buy just about anything if you tell them it’s a quick and easy way to lose weight . That’s not what we do at The Greenery. We tell you what we know and what we don’t know, we tell you what could/could/could happen, and then we let you decide for yourself. So that’s exactly what I’m doing.
THCV could be able give you a boost of energy; THCV can decrease your appetite. Who knows? My experience with this stuff is also limited (I’ve tried it twice), so for the record I can’t add much. The first time I tried THCV I did it at night, which might have been a mistake as it was hard to fall asleep; I assume that ticks the “energy” box. The second time was in the morning, and I admit that I didn’t feel hungry until after noon, but that’s normal for my appetite. So really, as with all other cannabis products, the only way to know for sure is to keep an open mind and try THCV yourself.
Don’t let the placebo effect get you. I always approach these personal experiences like a nerdy scientist: I take a food containing a new cannabinoid on an empty stomach, start an hour-long timer, then once it rings, I do my best to do an objective review. of how I feel. Do I really have more energy? Is my appetite really removed? Am I just stoned? These are the questions I ask myself, and ones you should also think about after trying the THCV edible we now have on our shelves (and yes, we’re the first in Durango to get it):
What I love most about the formulation of Wana’s new Fit Gummy is that each serving contains only 0.1mg of THC; there is simply no way a single serving will get you high. So that means you won’t be intoxicated, which means you can soberly focus on exactly how THCV is affecting you personally.
You can learn more about Wana Fit HERE, but here are the specifics: each candy contains 0.1mg of THC, 10mg of CBD, and 0.5mg of THCV, and they have a fruit punch flavor (which is absolutely delicious). There’s no high associated with these gummies, so they’re perfect for the morning, and the gummies themselves are vegan and gluten-free. These things are made with all-natural flavors and colors, they’re not made with high fructose corn syrup, and even the child-resistant packaging is durable, so Wana has thought of everything. Wana Fit gummies are $32 after tax, but remember all of our edibles are 15% off Tuesdays, which means they’ll be $27.20 if you want to save a little during your test. .
For now, that’s all there is to know about THCV, but I’ll keep you posted with updates whenever new studies/facts become available. And until then, keep checking us out – I’ll keep you up to date on everything new in the cannabis industry, especially when it comes to ‘new’ and exciting cannabinoids, because we’re your best friends!
