People report experiencing all types of benefits from the cannabis plant. And most are familiar with THC and CBD. But, what about the less-known compounds found in this plant, such as THCV? And, is it best to take THCV in gummies or oil?
What Is THCV vs. THC?
The first question to answer when researching THCV gummies is, what is THCV? THCV may sound a lot like THC, but they are not the same substance. THC is the well-known compound inside marijuana and hemp that makes users experience that infamous blissful feeling.
THCV is commonly reported as providing a “skinny feeling.”What does that mean? It means those who smoke or consume THCV do not experience the “munchies”. The “munchies” is a common term used to refer to the hungry sensation people experience with THC.
This sensation occurs when the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the brain become triggered. In particular, the ability to bind with the CB1 receptor seems to be the mind changing triggering effect. THCV, as far as researchers can tell, binds differently with the CB1 receptor.
This seems to be the determining factor as to why THCV won’t give consumers the munchies. Another difference between THC and THCV is the dosage. THC has stronger impacts with a minimal dose. THCV requires a higher dosage to make consumers experience the effects. This is one of the reasons 3CHI offers products that are blended with TCHV + Delta 8 THC.
Finally, the THCV feeling is a short, energizing experience. THC is commonly a dulling and longer-term experience.
