What is a THCV tincture?
THCV distillate is infused into medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) from coconuts, which serves as a carrier oil. Tinctures are ingested orally and contain a sublingual oil. Fill the syringe on your dropper to 1ml and squirt under your tongue. Hold under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing. You can watch our Tincture Dosing video here.
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”.

What's the difference between THCV and Delta-8-THC?

Could THCV help seizures the way CBD does?
THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) has shown compelling anti-seizure properties when tested on rats. It’s not psychoactive, which gives it a lot of potentials to be used as medicine. Unfortunately, research in the United States and the United Kingdom is stymied by its Schedule I status, so human trials are a long ways off, for now.

Tinctures are the most common delivery method to take THCV and the one we recommend for daily use.
Tinctures have higher bioavailability than products like gummies, drinks, softgels, and capsules. THCV that you simply eat or swallow must be digested. Your liver must process the THCV before THCV is circulated in your bloodstream. THCV is absorbed into your bloodstream more quickly under the tongue.
How often should I take it?
THCV is non-toxic. You cannot overdose. Use as needed. However, most of our customers report taking one serving in the morning and one serving at night.
Is it possible to take too much?
There are no reported incidences of overdoses. However, there are reports of extremely high doses causing drowsiness.
How to use our oil?
Directions: Fill dropper to 1ml mark on dropper and squirt under tongue. Hold under tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.
Why hold it under your tongue?
You have a network of endocannabinoid receptors under your tongue, so this is an efficient method for getting THCV into your system.
Which carrier oil do you use?
MCT oil from coconut. We use MCT oil because it is arguably the healthiest option and because it has the widest approval rating for taste among customers. Based on our experience, although the majority of people really like olive oil, those who don’t are strongly opposed to consuming it every day. Some companies use hemp seed oil, but it performed the worst in our taste tests.
What does the tincture fluid look like?
Our tincture fluid is extremely clean and looks nearly clear in lower milligram doses, with a slight yellow tint on higher, full-spectrum doses. This is due to the fact we use hemp with a high THCV content, so there is less plant material in the liquid.
