THCV, short for tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a rare cannabinoid, which means that it naturally exists in extremely small quantities in cannabis and hemp plants. While the better-known THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) found largely in marijuana, is known for inducing the munchies, scientists are finding that THCV does just the opposite in small amounts.
How does THCV reduce hunger?
Like other cannabinoids such as CBD, THCV interacts with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a physiological system responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body. This system is credited for regulating memory and learning, appetite, stress response, pain sensation, mood, sleep, inflammation and more.
Cannabinoids are compounds found in cannabis and hemp
The ECS contains two main types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. Unlike THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis that “give people the munchies” THCV has the opposite effect. Whereas THC activates the CB1 receptor, releasing hunger-promoting hormones, THCV does the opposite, blocking the CB1 receptor and decreasing hunger.
THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) may help reduce your appetite and promote weight loss
Those working to reduce their weight and enhance their overall health are looking for any advantage they can find. THCV will not prevent you from eating an entire pizza or quart of ice cream, but it can help you stick to your exercise and nutrition plan—you still have to watch what you eat!

How should I store my gummies?
Gummies last longer when stored in a cool, dark place. Exposure to heat or light can cause the gummies to melt together, or worse, it can cause the cannabinoids to degrade prematurely. The fridge is the best place to keep your treats fresh. Keep them sealed in their jar and out of reach from children or pets.
