THCv for Energy, Appetite Suppression and Panic Attacks

If you’re struggling with a few miscellaneous conditions including overeating and panic attacks, we might have just the trick for you. Because of its name, it might not surprise you that THCv is molecularly similar to THC. However, it produces some very different effects. What are some of the results of taking THCv?

THCv for Energy, Appetite Suppression and Panic Attacks

 

Cannabis legalization is helping to break down stereotypes and misconceptions that were set forth by years of reefer madness like prohibition. One of those nasty stereotypes was that cannabis makes people lazy. This just isn't true. Yes, cannabis can relax you. But it can also give you an incredible pick me up. It is known to help boost energy and creativity.

Many people are familiar with Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These two cannabinoids have had a lot of media time lately. CBD is extremely popular with hemp and is not known to produce any intoxicating effects. THC is infamously associated with medical or recreational cannabis and is associated with its high or buzz. Both of these cannabinoids have many different therapeutic benefits. But they are not the only ones.

Meet THCV - Tetrahydrocannabivarin

THCV is less common than many of the other talked about cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG, and others. In low amounts, THCV has virtually no psychoactive effects. Switch up to very high concentrated levels of THCV, and it has psychoactive qualities described as euphoric, energetic, and clear-headed.

THCV is gaining attention throughout the medical community with medical professionals like Dr. Michael Moskowitz, who is the president of the Bay Area Pain Medical Association based out of California. Dr. Moskowitz was quoted to media sources saying;

"THCV is analgesic and anti-inflammatory, it's neuroprotective, which means it protects the nervous system. It's anti-nausea and vomiting. It helps with bone health and bone formation, it's sleep-promoting, it's anti-epileptic, it's anti-anxiety. It's a major antipsychotic, and it helps with appetite suppression, it's anti-diabetic and it's anti-cholesterol.”

The Anti-Munchie Cannabinoid

Another infamous association with cannabis is an increased appetite, often referred to as the munchies. THC is known to trigger the spike in appetite, whereas THCV is said to block the receptors triggering the hunger hormone. There are studies suggesting THCV increases energy helping the body burn more calories. It also shows potential in helping to reduce glucose intolerance. This could help THCV play an extremely important role in helping manage type 2 diabetes.

Uplifting and Offering Hope for Anxiety

These are extremely stressful times. Anxiety and panic attacks are becoming more common and frequent. An independent lab that tests cannabis released a report on THCV. In this report, THCV is said to have been found to "reduce or even block panic attacks and as a result, can be highly effective in the management of PTSD and other mental disorders involving anxiety or stress, as shown in research in places like Israel, or a great amount of cannabis research is done."

Other Benefits of THCV

THCV also shows exceptional promise in helping to control muscular tremors associated with ALS, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease. On top of all these great benefits, research also suggests THCV has the potential to reduce both the severity and frequency of seizures when utilized as a preventive measure as well as when used during a seizure. It doesn't stop there. THCV also shows effectiveness at helping to slow and or even prevent certain types of bone degeneration. It can also help new bone cells grow and offer anti-inflammatory properties.
