THC-V and Weight Loss? Are They Connected?

When it comes to cannabis consumption, the first thing you typically associate with this is raiding the fridge or consuming too much food. But this causes a problem. With obesity increasing, more and more health risks are there and this can impact a lot of the healthcare system. 

There are strains that are used to help relax the body, reduce pain, stimulate appetite, and overall help people. Is there a way to have a product that helps with weight loss though?  A way to keep the munchies away fast Well, there is, and THC-V is possibly the key to finding the appetite suppressants in the cannabis product, and it could possibly incorporate more weight loss as a result. 



How is it Different 

You may think you know the different kinds of THC, but there are actually other ones that are there and they are called Delta-10 and Delta-8 products, close cousins and processed versions of this. THC-V or tetrahydrocannabivarin is a product that is a molecule that is a bit unique.  It can be a good one for a lot of people. It does not have the psychoactive effects that the other types of cannabis too and is considered unique and may offer some light on the development and creation of medicines to help with a variety of diseases. 

Right now, the results of this on CB1 and 2 receptors are actually still a bit mixed, and they have both good and bad effects of this. Right now, there needs to be more research put into this, but for now, a lot of researchers are curious about how effective this can be for appetite suppressants in people. It is effective for some people, but if you have anorexia and bulimia, it may not be good, and it can possibly help those who suffer from obesity which is life-threatening, and give them a bit of a new start to their life. 

Not Psychoactive? 

It is very interesting that a lot of people assume that it’s always going to create the psychoactive effects, but this is actually not the case. There are more and more pointe results that come from cannabis that are worth mentioning. 

Last year, the first drug that was made from cannabis was prescribed, and that’s called Epidolex, which is available for rare conditions of epilepsy. What was holding this back though was the use of cannabis in a treatment plan to help with this, and also to help balance out the cannabis with the psychoactive results of this. 


The goal for this was to create something that wouldn’t impair the person, and this one actually is becoming an alternative for opioids, which are highly addictive and can cause a lot of drowsiness and impairment. THC-V is one that has all of the benefits of the THC chemical, without the need to impair the system, and this is even possible at the larger dosages. There is very little psychoactive results with this, so if you don’t want to get high, this is a good one. It also is good for helping with curbing the appetite too, which we’ll discuss a little bit further here. 

Helping diabetes? 

Diabetes used to be a bit more obscure, but as of late, with all of the different forms of diabetes coming as a result of diets, it’s becoming a lot more common. One in 10 people have the condition, and one in 3 have unmanaged glucose levels that put them at risk for prediabetes. While the study is still very early on, it can be a bit beneficial for a lot of people, and for those who are looking to lose weight, it could be the godsend that they’re looking for as well for them.
