THCV isolate, THC (or tetrahydrocannabivarin) are very similar compounds. While THC is commonly present in Marijuana plants, THCV is more prevalent in Sativa-based strains.
THCV is a minor cannabinoid, meaning it has smaller amounts within cannabis versus others such as CBD and THC.
THCV can naturally be found in small amounts in dried hemp and marijuana material. Although THCV is very similar in structure to THC it offers a variety of exciting benefits.
THCV isolate has a propyl side chain (in chemistry that describes 3 Carbons.THC contains a pentyl (with 5 Carbons) chain.
Because our CB brain receptors are responsible for the, sometimes sluggish, effects of Marijuana.
Hemp isolation on the body, THCV can create a euphoric and energized feeling. This is also due to the Sativa plants that isolate comes from.
Unlike THC, THCV actually works as an appetite suppressant making it popular in the treatment of obesity and diabetes.
The difference in molecular structure also means that THCV isolate will not have the same ‘intoxicating' or high effects as THC.
If you are someone who suffers from anxiety and paranoia when consuming traditional THC products, THCV is a much better option.
This isolate provides a clear-headed and focused mental state with amazing health benefits.
There have been various studies that detail some of the potential health benefits of the compound.
A 2013 study found that THCV reduced blood pressure and glucose intolerance while increasing insulin sensitivity.
These benefits help to treat and protect from afflictions such as strokes and heart disease.
THCV could stimulate the production of new bone cells, making it an extremely promising treatment for those with Osteoporosis and other degenerative diseases.
THCV is a known ‘neuroprotective, which means that it acts to protect nerve cells and functions within the brain.
This amazing benefit could make THCV isolate extremely successful in treating multiple health conditions.
