Primary EndoCannabinoids


Cannabivarin (CBV), also known as Cannabivarol - I s second most abundant cannabinoid. CBV, like CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which means it does not get you high.

Little is known about when and how CBV was discovered. CBV is a cannabinoid that is oxidised from tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). It is stated that a drug test for CBV will reveal THC use.

Cannabivarin is a derivative of the well-known Cannabinol (CBN).  Cannabivarin is an oxidised precursor of THCV, THV – tetrahydrocannabivarin. CBV, like other lesser-known cannabinoids, is undocumented due to a lack of thorough study.

CBV belongs to the phytocannabinoids family, which includes cannabinoids such as cannabichromene and cannabigerol (CBG). CBV has no double bond isomers or stereoisomer.

Despite the fact that scientists have identified over 120 phytocannabinoids, we know very little about them including CBV and its potential applications. More studies on cannabinoids are needed to determine the potential utility of CBV.

Although research on marijuana and phytocannabinoid, particularly THC, is progressing, many other cannabinoids, such as CBV, are still to be properly researched.

The working nature of CBV

Cannabidivarin mechanism & its working nature is undiscovered. However preliminary research indicates how phytocannabinoids as a group affect the body. Phytocannabinoids appear to influence the body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

The body naturally produces endocannabinoids to modulate the body's system and function. According to science, phytocannabinoids can stimulate the ECS and send messages to specific different areas of the body to treat certain health disorders.

From above theory, we can conclude that cannabinoids obtained from plants can imitate the actions of endocannabinoids produced by the body.

CBV's potential medicinal applications are unknown due to the lack of studies, however this does not rule out the possibility because it is a cannabinoid. It can be used to alleviate nausea and vomiting, promote relaxation, treat brain tumors, mood disorders, multiple sclerosis, nerve pain, and enhance sexual desire.
