Today's Weed News For December 6th 2018 #THCV

For today's weed news we go to the great state of California.

I'm sure almost everybody has heard of cannabinoids. And out of the dozens of cannabinoids that exist, I feel like THC and CBD are definitely the most popular. They are also the most abundant.

While THC is definitely a fun one, and CBD has been proven to help with so many different medical conditions, others, like THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) for example also seem to have countless beneficial properties. The thing is, most other cannabinoids only occur naturally in very small quantities. Usually under 1%. That's nowhere near the double-digit percentages of THC and CBD that many strains can produce.

But now, researchers out of California are reporting that they figured out a way to maximize the THCV content in certain strains of medical weed!

While most growers have been trying to increase THC, they inevitably reduced the contents of most of the other cannabinoids in their plans. But these guys are basically trying to do the opposite, while focusing specifically on tetrahydrocannabivarin.

One of the researchers, Dr. Michael Moskowitz spoke about THCV recently and explained that it is "...analgesic and anti-inflammatory, it's neuroprotective, which means it protects the nervous system... It's anti-nausea and vomiting. It helps with bone health and bone formation, it's sleep promoting, it's anti-epileptic, it's anti-anxiety. It's a major anti-psychotic. And it helps with appetite suppression, it's anti-diabetic and it's anti-cholesterol."

Shit... I like where this guy is going! I've been telling the world that cannabis is a miracle plant!

I feel like this has a good chance of catching on. If these scientists are right, and THCV really does help with so many things as described above, it wouldn't surprise me to see it go head-to-head over shelf space with CBD someday.

I wonder how long it takes before we hear about another newsworthy development involving tetrahydrocannabivarin. Hopefully not too long!

And that's what's up in California
