How THCV Isolate is Made

 

Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is quickly becoming

one of the market’s hottest cannabinoids

, dubbed “diet weed” and “weeder all” for its supposed appetite-curbing and energy-boosting qualities.

 

THCV is an abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabivarin, a minor cannabinoid recognized for its appetite-reducing properties, making it big among weight-conscious cannabis connoisseurs. As a result, THCV has earned the moniker “diet weed” or “weight loss cannabinoid.”



Aside from hunger reduction,

THCV


has the potential to give a variety of distinctive effects. THCV was discovered in 1973, and while it isn’t as well-known as CBD or THC, it is a highly researched cannabinoid.

How Does THCV Occur?

In terms of chemical structure, THCV is quite similar to THC, however, it is formed from a completely distinct precursor.

 

While the majority of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD, are byproducts of CBGA (cannabigerol acid) synthesis, THCV is the ultimate consequence of CBGVA synthesis (cannabigerovarin acid). When exposed to heat or light, CBGV changes to THCVA, which then becomes THCV.

 

The most prevalent source of THCV is found in pure sativa plants that originate from Africa, China, Nepal, Pakistan, India, Thailand, and Afghanistan.

Because of its lesser content in the cannabidiol or hemp plant, extracting THCV is more costly, but the technique is the same as for other cannabis. THCV is extracted by chromatography, which separates the components from the plant using superfluid liquid solvents such as CO2 or ethanol. The solution is then evaporated with heat under a vacuum to eliminate all of the gas, leaving behind a high-purity THCV concentrate.

 

The resulting concentrate is now the isolated chemical, with a THCV level ranging from 91 to 99 percent ready to use. To maintain potency, keep THCV products at room temperature and apart from direct sun.

The Bottom Line

The word is spreading concerning this energy-boosting, weight-loss-inducing, anti-inflammatory powerhouse, and THCV has the potential to be one of the cannabis industry’s next huge elements. Presently, several strains in the industry generate notable levels of THCV, so there’s a market gap and a chance, according to market-research firm Benzinga, to be one of the first businesses to brand high-THCV strains or extracts.

 

THCV is a product that encourages people of various backgrounds to try it, particularly those who have never taken cannabis before because they are afraid of the high and cravings that THC causes. Low amounts of THCV, unlike its intoxicating cousin, provide great energy, clarity of mind, and appetite-suppressant properties that may even lure the Type A’s among us. Its potential to attract a larger crowd of clients is a big advantage.
