What is CBDV?
CBDV, or cannabidivarin, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, similar to CBD. It tends to be found in Indica strains sourced from Asia and Africa. Although it has been shown to have similar therapeutic effects as CBD, research on CBDV is slightly behind. It’s rare to find more than 1% CBDV in any cannabis plant, which makes it costly to source and therefore less attractive to researchers. Although they've had their sights set on CBD, researchers have conducted some newer CBDV studies you can check out below.
Potential Benefits of CBDV
A 2019 study showed that CBDV may help alleviate symptoms associated with ASD, notably anxiety, by lowering levels of glutamate.
A 2018 study highlights the potential of CBD and CBDV to re-grow muscle fibers, prevent the loss of muscle activity, and reduce inflammation in mice and human cells affected by the genetic disorder.
A 2013 study showed that CBDV and THCV may have therapeutic potential in reducing nausea.
What is CBDV Flower?
CBDV Flower is hemp grown specifically to have high levels of CBD + CBDV and low levels of THC. Given that typical cannabis plants don't naturally produce a lot of CBDV, this new breakthrough in genetics gives consumers a chance to experiment with the new cannabinoid by increasing its accessibility. CBDV flower can range in potency from 3-9% CBDV and 3-15% CBD. We currently offer two CBDV flower options.
