Divarinic Acid is a term used to describe a group of acids found in certain cannabis strains. These acids are precursors to various cannabinoids, particularly those with a propyl side chain, such as THCV and CBDV. Divarinic Acid plays a role in the development of these specific cannabinoids, which have unique effects and potential therapeutic benefits.
These propyl cannabinoids, such as THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) and CBDV (Cannabidivarin), have distinct chemical structures and properties compared to their more common pentyl counterparts, such as THC and CBD. The unique features of propyl cannabinoids give them distinct physiological effects and potential therapeutic applications, making Divarinic Acid an important contributor to the diversity of cannabinoids found in cannabis.
