THCV, or Tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It develops from its precursor, THCVA, when exposed to heat or light. THCV has mild psychoactive effects, but it's less potent than THC. Some research suggests THCV may have potential medicinal properties, such as appetite suppression, blood sugar regulation, and reducing anxiety. It might also help with conditions like obesity and diabetes.
