What is THCV?
Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a cannabinoid that, if present in high enough doses, can interact with the body’s endocannabinoid receptors to induce psychoactive effects. THCV, like Delta-9-THC, can act as an agonist of the body’s CB1 endocannabinoid receptor, although the effects of THCV are much weaker than THC. At lower doses (10-20mg) THCV can behave as a CB1 receptor antagonist, meaning that it has the potential to attenuate some of the less-desirable effects of THC that are thought to be CB1 receptor mediated, such as poorer motor control, lessened cognitive function, and even the food craving “munchies.” A tincture is a sublingual oil. THCV distillate is infused into medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) from coconuts, which serves as a carrier oil. Tinctures are ingested orally. Fill the syringe on your dropper to 1ml and squirt under your tongue. Hold under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.
