THCV Distillate - Tetrahydrocannabivarin










Meet THCV Distillate from FreshBros

THCV, also known as Tetrahydrocannabivarin is a newly discovered cannabinoid with a lot of promise, offering the ability to get high while avoiding the munchies. In fact, THCV distillate goes a step further and preliminary research shows that THCV distillate can help with appetite suppression.

THCV is one of those new minor cannabinoids that is just now gaining some attention. Some call it the “Diet THC” or “Skinny Pot", since it seems to act a bit like CBD in that it modulates and dampens some traditional effects of THC, like getting the munchies.

What is THCV? 

What is THCV - Tetrahydrocannabivarin?

When compared side by side, THC and THCV are very close in composition but have different psychoactive effects. 

There is little science about THCV, but what it has shown so far is that it appears to give you a clear-headed and stimulating high.

THCV distillate has a fast onset but doesn’t last as long as Delta 9 THC.  

Another thing to note is that the molecule changes depending on the dose. A small amount may not give you the buzz you’re looking for, but higher doses will act on the CB1 receptor and produce a psychoactive effect.

THCV Distillate: How is it Extracted and Stored?

THCV Distillate: How Is It Extracted?

THCV is a rare and minor cannabinoid found in certain hemp strains. Extracting THCV to make THCV distillate is expensive due to its lower content in the cannabis or hemp plant itself, but the process is the same with other cannabinoids. 

THCV is extracted through a chromatography process that uses superfluid liquid solvents such as CO2 or ethanol to separate the compounds from the plant. The solution is then evaporated with heat under a vacuum to remove all the gas and leave a high-purity THCV concentrate behind.

The resulting concentrate is now the isolated compound, with potency ranging from 91-99% THCV content. 

How to Store THCV Distillate Products

THCV products should be stored at room temperature and away from direct sunlight to preserve potency.

Possible Benefits of THCV

What are some possible benefits of this cannabinoid?

It’s important to note that like with all the newly discovered minor cannabinoids such as THCp, Delta 10, and HHC, research is still preliminary and inconclusive. However, there is a lot of promise with many of these cannabinoids.

Initial research shows that THCV could reduce anxiety attacks in PTSD patients, improve the tremors and motor control problems associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and stimulate the growth of bone cells. Research also  suggests it may also have anti-inflammatory effects.

THCV as an Appetite Suppressant

THCV is an appetite suppressant. In contrast to THC, THCV may dull the appetite. This may be good for consumers focused on weight loss, but THCV should be avoided by patients treating appetite loss or anorexia.

THCV May Help with Diabetes

THCV may help with diabetes. Research shows promise in THCV’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce insulin resistance.

THCV May Reduce Panic Attacks

THCV may reduce panic attacks. It appears to curb anxiety attacks in PTSD patients without suppressing emotion.

THCV may help with Alzheimer’s

THCV may help with Alzheimer’s. Tremors, motor control, and brain lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease appear to be improved by THCV, but research is in progress.

THCV Stimulates Bone Growth

THCV stimulates bone growth. Because it promotes the growth of new bone cells, THCV is being looked at for osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions.
