Here are the 6 best strains rich in THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin contains various medicinal properties here are the strains to remember

Research suggests that THCV may treat obesity and diabetes. The belief of some consumers goes so far as to say that THCV can amplify the effects of THC and reduce appetite, it is a powerful appetite suppressant but also and conversely these strains have also been linked to paranoid episodes. It helps reduce anxiety and that the high produced is described as being cerebral and energetic rather than heavy and sleepy and this is not without a scientific basis! Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the plant. Some breeders believe that the consumption of THCV will increase in the years to come.

This anecdotal evidence is mixed because there is no universal reaction to a strain of cannabis. There are too many variables, from mood to genetics, to accurately predict how a strain of cannabis will affect an individual. Although the two cannabinoids are different (despite their similar names THC - THCv), they interact with many of the same endocannabinoid receptors. This means that they can cause similar effects in consumers. Here are the Strains to remember.

God's Green Crack

God's Green Crack

God's Green Crack lives up to its name according to fans of the strain. Some users describe the experience of a high that allows them to focus on simple to complex tasks during the first half of their high. After the energy explosion, the brain effects can settle into a relaxing body high ideal for more sedentary activities. In addition to providing a satisfying mental and physical high, God's Green Crack is known for its citrus and woody aroma.

Durban Poison

Durban Poison

Some sources suggest that the strains with the most THCV originate from Asia and Africa. The Durban Poison is a well-known Landrace strain with origins in South Africa. Users report a very energizing high after consuming this strain which comes with little-known body heaviness. Due to its alleged potent brain effects, many use this strain to distract from anxiety and depression or to focus their energy on creative and productive tasks.

Jack the Ripper

Jack the Ripper

Like the other strains on this list, Jack the Ripper is known for his powerful cerebral high. Unlike other strains, this high tends to lack clarity, allowing for focus. Jack the Ripper has been described by some users as being psychedelic. This effect can lead users to initiate creative activities. Some describe elevated mood and increased energy as a result of consuming this tension, along with relief from migraines, fatigue, and pain.

Pineapple Purps

Pineapple Purps

Much like Doug's Varin, Pineapple Purps contains exceptionally high levels of THCV. It can even have ratios of 3: 1 THCV / THC. This strain has been described as extremely psychoactive, in a way that can be overwhelming for someone looking for a more focused and grounded mindset, but perfectly suited for those seeking a creative and eye-opening experience. Fans of this strain appreciate the improved mood and pain relief it provides.

Red congolese

Red congolese

Red Congolese fans tend to use the strain in the morning or afternoon, with some calling it their go-to strain for waking up and baking. Some say they feel an improvement in mood, followed by a motivation to create or be productive. This focus is enhanced by a mild body high which, as some users describe it, suppresses aches and pains while sharpening the senses. Once the arousal phase of the high has passed, you can experience a period of tranquility and calm as the effects of the stress subside.

Doug's Varin

Doug's Varin

Doug's Varin is a very rare strain specifically bred to contain high levels of THCV. Unlike the other strains on this list, Doug's Varin can contain up to 25% THCV. Users describe a state of energetic and lucid euphoria which can cause mild anxiety. The amount of THCV can decrease appetite. If you use weed to stimulate your appetite, this strain might not be the right one for you. However, if you want to experience a high that leaves you productive and energetic without making you hungry, Doug's Varin is worth a try.

This is only a non-exhaustive panel of different varieties of cannabis containing an interesting percentage of thcv and we hope that very soon research will be able to tell us even more.
