What is THC-V?
THC-V (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is a compound in cannabis. It is similar to THC in its molecular structure and its psychoactive properties; however, it has different effects. While THC is known for creating the “high” often associated with cannabis, THC-V “dampens your nerves and calms you down.”
THC-V is also known for smelling and tasting pleasant, which makes it ideal for use.
Health Benefits of THC-V
There are many health benefits of THC-V. Here are just a few positive effects that one may be able to expect from the use of THC-V:
Help with anxiety: Having anxiety can be a struggle in someone’s everyday life. THC-V can potentially help. One thing that THC-V does is activate serotonin receptors. Serotonin, in case you are not familiar, treats anxiety symptoms.
Counteract obesity: THC-V is great for weight loss. One report found that, when using THC-V, “the urge to eat is diminished”, which of course helps with weight loss and counteracting obesity. THC-V can also provide someone with more energy, which can help with the ability to exercise for weight loss.
Promote bone growth: Since THC-V promotes collagen production, bone growth is stimulated as a result. This can be especially helpful for conditions like osteoporosis.
Control diabetes: Insulin and blood sugar regulation are promoted by the use of THC-V. THC-V can have a positive effect in mitigating symptoms of diabetes, such as neuropathy.
PTSD reduction: THC-V helps block panic attacks which may trigger a PTSD response.
Reduced inflammation: THC-V is known to reduce inflammation and also bloating.
Help with Alzheimer’s: Research is still in progress, but “tremors, motor control, and brain lesions. . .appear to be improved by THC-V.”
Help with epilepsy and seizures: THC-V may help reduce the occurrence of seizures. THC-V can also “help prevent epileptic episodes.”
Help with schizophrenia: Delusions and hallucinations can be kept in check.
Help with Parkinson’s disease: One way that THC-V may help with Parkinson’s disease is by controlling tremors associated with the disease.
