THCVA "Diet Weed"

Updated: Oct 5, 2023

Welcome Spaced Cadets! We talked about the beautiful cannabinoid Anandamide last week, and this week will be about the cannabinoid THCVA. There is much potential for this “Diet Weed.” Keep reading and learn more to see if you would like this Cannabinoid.

THCVA stands for Tetrahydrocannabivarin Acid, big word! This cannabinoid is sometimes called diet weed because of its lack of hunger effects. THCVA works by attaching itself to our CB1 receptors, just like THC, but gives off a different high acting as a neutral CB1 antagonist. Meaning it does the opposite of getting you high. THCVA is a Phytocannabinoid that does not have many quantities, making it delicate.

THCVA has many benefits that could possibly help with its medicinal properties that interact with our endocannabinoid system. Studies have shown that THCVA has key properties: Appetite suppressant, diabetes, anti-convulsant, obesity, diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, osteoporosis, and schizophrenia. Many studies have shown positive results for those conditions; just like any other cannabinoid, it has its own anti-inflammatory properties and helps with other skin conditions.

There have been multiple studies that have shown that THCV helps with other conditions, too. THCVA can help promote bone growth of new cells in helping with osteoporosis. It can help delay neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease. It helps schizophrenia by having enhanced serotonin receptors managing the symptoms.

Overall, I believe this cannabinoid has great potential in helping people suffering from Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, and epilepsy. It could be safer than taking pharmaceutical pills that damage your body. If you are interested in trying THCVA try our .5 gram cartridges! Our amazing budtenders will be glad to help!
