Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid (THCVA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and molecular precursor to THCV. THCVA may act an anti-inflammatory, and possibly help regulate the immune system. THCVA holds promise as a pain reliever and key contributor to the potential anti-cancer properties cannabis may offer. THCVA will convert to THCV through decarboxylation, which occurs when cannabis is exposed to heat or sunlight.

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and the acidic precursor to CBD. CBDA can be found in the live or raw form of cannabis, particularly in the hemp plant and strains bred to cultivate higher CBD levels. CBDA converts to CBD through decarboxylation, which occurs when cannabis is exposed to heat or sunlight.

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and a primary constituent of cured and live cannabis. THCA is the acidic form of THC as they share a very similar molecular composition. The differentiation is due to an additional carboxyl group in THCA, which converts to THC through exposure to heat or sunlight. This process of decarboxylation expedites the conversion when cannabis is subjected to high heat. In its raw form, THCA’s prevalence in cannabis may have a multitude of therapeutic applications due to its non-psychoactive nature.

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with a host of potential therapeutic applications. CBC may carry pain relieving properties, act as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, assist with digestive and gastrointestinal disorders, possess antibacterial and antifungal efficacy, and could potentially contribute to the regeneration of brain cells, which possibly has implications in the treatments of multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, dementia, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative related conditions.

Cannabinol (CBN) is considered a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid known for its powerful sedative properties. When THC is oxidized, the degradation process converts THC to CBN, which may account for the sedative effect aged cannabis often carries.

A cannabis concentrate is the oil extraction from the cannabis plant, leaving behind pure cannabinoids and terpenes in high potency. The most common extraction methods are hydrocarbon extraction (most commonly referred to as BHO) and CO2 extraction. Also becoming increasingly more popular, is refining those oils further; into what’s known as a distillate.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a cannabinoid that holds potentially potent psychoactive effects, along with a host of medicinal benefits. Similar in chemical composition to THC, THCV is thought to act as an antagonist to some of the effects of THC when found in small amounts, while possibly accentuating them in higher doses. Strains or products rich in THCV may result in a stimulating, clear headed, almost psychedelic type of energetic high that is typically shorter in duration.
