Overview - Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)

Description of Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)

Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) was discovered in 1971. It belongs to the THC group but produces different effects than THC. A lot of attention is given THCV of late due to the observation that it may be able to produce therapeutic effects in obesity related diabetes especially in contrast to the failed approach with Rimonabant, the CB1 inverse agonist used to treat obesity but then pulled from market due to the potential increased of mood disorders.
