    THCV 101: A Rundown on the Rare ‘Sports Car’ Cannabinoid

    THCV, which stands for tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a cannabinoid that was discovered in the early 70s. Almost 50 years later, it’s nowhere near as famous as other cannabis compounds like THC and CBD, but that’s not to say it is lacking in the psychoactive or medical departments, which are the two main reasons people seek cannabis. On the contrary, the unhyped but extensive research on THCV has shown that depending on the dose, the fairly rare cannabinoid can produce a vast array of effects that both THC buffs and CBD users can enjoy and benefit from.

    What is THCV and how is it different from THC?

    THCV is a cannabis compound mostly found in Sativa strains. Despite being overshadowed by its more famous cousin, THC, it still has been the subject of relatively wide research. Years of study have revealed that like THC, THCV also has some psychoactive effects, although not as slow-hitting as the former and not as long lasting, hence the nickname. The mood-altering effects of THCV are swift and intense—like a sports car! Unlike THC, however, THCV can only get you high at extremely high doses.

    On the other end of the spectrum, THCV at very low doses can attenuate the effects of THC that some users find unpleasant, like dampened motor skills and untimely food cravings. 

    What are other THCV effects and benefits?

    Though research on THCV has been quite wide-reaching, it hasn’t been exactly conclusive—at least not yet. But as more information ab

    Delta-10 THC: An A to Z on the Newest Cannabinoid in Town

    Ah, the wonders of cannabis and hemp—they don’t seem to run out of new things to stir up enthusiasts around the world.

    It hasn’t been long since people have started gushing over the pleasurably gentler highs of Delta-8 THC, but it looks like it’s time yet again to make room for the newest member of the “Delta family,” Delta 10-THC. 

    What is Delta-10 THC?

    Delta-10 is one of the hundreds of THC compounds that’s also close relatives with the longer-known Delta-9, which you would probably know to be the compound that brings about the all-too-familiar cannabis-induced feelings of high and euphoria. With its straight-out-of-a-movie discovery story, Delta-10 THC is highly elusive at the moment, with the compound only being found in trace amounts at most and only after certain processes are carried out. 

    Research on this intriguing compound is still in progress and so not much is known about it as of yet. But even now, it’s already showing great potential for both recreation and health that we think it to be a good idea to get to know it before it becomes even more hyped up. To get you started, we’ve put together everything that we know so far about Delta-10 THC.

    Delta-10 THC vs Delta-9 THC

    Delta-9 THC is the cannabinoid that’s known to be responsible for making us feel the highs associated with cannabis. The main difference between that and the mysterious Delta-10 is simply where the bonds are in their chemical structures; Delta-9 h

    THCV Cartridges: Your Next Favorite Way to Toke

    Ever since the birth of marijuana use, people have come up with various creative ways to enjoy it. We’ve gone from ancient Mesopotamians using the azullu (cuneiform word for weed) in their food and incense for spiritual and religious purposes, to modern smokers using joints, vaporizers, and spliffs for the euphoria and other health benefits.

    Even now in the 21st century, stoners never seem to run out of ideas to enjoy weed more easily, with more novel ways being introduced by the day (almost, at least). One of the newest additions to our shelf of ingenious ways to consume marijuana is by using cartridges. 

    What are THCV Cartridges?

    When some genius cannabis user decided it would be a good idea to modify an e-cigarette to hold weed instead of tobacco, he unknowingly paved the way to unlocking an even more convenient way to smoke cannabis: cartridges.

    Cartridges differ from their predecessor makeshift marijuana vape pens in that with the latter, people had to purchase bottles of vape juice and fill the vape pen themselves. With cartridges, the need to do things yourself is essentially eliminated. 

    THCV Cartridges are disposable pre-filled vessels containing strains of THCV oils. THCV is a close cousin of the more well-known THC, one that has not yet been 100% proven to produce psychoactive effects (first-hand experiences and science seem to clash, but it’s an ongoing research so there’s hope!). It does offer an impressive lineup of benefits, though, including a clear head.<
