CBD vs. THCv

Did you know that some people aren’t fans of getting high? That’s right. Some people are happy with their beingness but sometimes are looking for an extra push that isn’t noticeable. That’s how it should be with both CBD and THCv. The absence of certain feelings will put you in a state of confusion, but a good confusion. But once you begin to gather that one of these cannabinoids helped you throughout the day, it’s like breathing in a new life. So what is the difference between THC and CBD? This one is a little bit more of a loaded question because there isn’t anything like THCv; it’s becoming a household name in the CBD industry. CBD is THE household cannabinoid, the king and queen for alternate cannabinoids. You may also wonder what part CBD takes on when it comes to other cannabinoids. ATLRx has you.  

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive major cannabinoid that can derive in large quantities in cannabis plants such as hemp and marijuana. However, hemp plants have a more readily available amount of CBD inside it. And for states where marijuana is illegal, hemp is the only option—that isn’t necessarily a problem for a good portion of those who love the alternate cannabinoids. These cannabinoids are federally legal due to a loophole in the Federal Farm Bill of 2018; there lies a grey area within the bill where they sleep peacefully and legally. So as long as the delta-9 THC is below 0.3% in dry weight, it is compliant with the federal regulations.

It all began with CBD; it is the main component needed to formulate CBD products and alternate cannabinoids with solvent processing. CBD took off after preliminary research was brought to everyone’s attention, including those active in the health and wellness industry. Oddly enough, we are now in a similar situation with Delta-8 THC (link ub delta 8 study) due to its more forgiving effects regarding the paranoia and fear that delta-9 THC can induce. Sometimes, it can even change the mind of those who are anti-THC. CBD is often lumped into the marijuana category when really, it’s not the same at all. It certainly doesn’t help when misinformation is passed along, either.

THC is the cannabinoid that delivers a psychoactive intoxication, not CBD.  

CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. The extraction method is vital and always needs to be considered when purchasing products. ATLRx uses the best extraction method on the market, supercritical CO2 and ethanol. This method assures that we get the pure form of distillate possible. CBD can come in various forms, not only in the form of consumption but also what is in your CBD product. An isolate has one singular cannabinoid, generally in CBD, CBG, or CBN. Then you have Broad Spectrum, which doesn’t have delta-9 THC in it but has other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, and CBN. ATLRx carries full-spectrum CBD, which provides you with every cannabinoid. We maintain the full spectrum because it gives you more health benefits; this is known as the entourage effect. Your ECS (Endocannabinoid System) allows the additional cannabinoids to latch on, providing you with additional cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBN, and Delta-9 THC that make a huge difference!

Others may go for the isolate or broad-spectrum because of the 0.3% of Delta-9 THC, limiting the possibility of triggering a failure on a drug test. The Delta-9 THC’s presence is minuscule, but we cannot guarantee that it won’t lead to a failing test because of the way CBD builds. With CBD, there is a bit of experimentation based on what you’re trying to get out of it. Lighter doses throughout the day can be stimulating, pushing anxiety to the side so you can concentrate. Then Those struggling with sleep or chronic pain can use heavier doses. CBD provides help with inflammation, sleep, anxiety, concentration, fatigue, depression, PTSD, diabetes complications, and it can reduce seizures in those with epilepsy or other seizure-inducing disorders. The first FDA-approved prescription is called Epidolex; it treats rare seizure disorders. But it’s the only CBD-related product that the FDA regulates.

What is THCv?

THCv (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is a minor cannabinoid that makes concentration and productivity fluid; it’s not like pulling teeth. You’re not in the grasp of procrastination, just ready to start the day. The talks of THCv came along early in the alternate cannabinoid market; it took some time to catch on because of its mythologized effects and nicknames. It was called “weederal,” the” Sports Car of Cannabinoids,” and a “super-sativa.” THCv earned these names because it’s a cerebral and controlled effect that brings you into a tunnel vision concentration level and gently lets you down. There isn’t a crash like Adderall, but appetite suppression is similar to prescribed stimulants. What remains a mystery is THCv’s molecular structure; it’s almost identical to THC—except it’s missing the tail-end of carbon atoms. But its final results show a completely different experience. It is safe to say THCv is not psychoactive, but there is potential in the near future.

It comes as no surprise that THCv’s other nickname is “Diet Weed.” It comes in handy when you’re sleep-deprived and craving sugary foods. THCv is now in the preliminary research that has shown hope for those with type 2 diabetes dues to the cannabinoid’s ability for weight control and reducing glucose intolerance. The research still has quite a ways to go, but any progress is still progress. Although THCv sounds intoxicating, it isn’t intoxicating at low levels; if you feel anything—it’s a slight tingle in your legs. That’s just the THCv working with your ECS. THCv has exciting benefits that are almost polar opposite of the cannabinoids we knew previously. The cannabinoid is stimulating while alleviating anxiety—something that is tricky in the medical world. THCv is shedding a ray of hope for other minor cannabinoids but has also become a fan favorite as far as blends go. You can find it often with CBD; the results, of course, depend on how you take it and the dosing. 

What’s the Difference Between CBD and THCv? 

CBD comes in various forms of consumption as well. There are CBD oil tinctures, vape cartridges, flower, gummies, chocolates, capsules, and topicals. ATLRx carries an entire collection; for THCv, we have our delicious fruit punch 10mg gummies, and in our retail front, we have vape cartridges in the strains Blue Skittles and Strawberry Cough. Our THCv carts are blended with CBD to take a portion of the edge off so that you can do what needs to be done! CBD is more subtle than THCv but it complements the minor cannabinoid in a physiological manner opposed to the mental pursuit that THCv is tracking down.

In an unregulated CBD market, there’s a saturation of companies who aren’t being honest about their products, even going so far as providing labs that give you no insight into the development whatsoever. ATLRx takes safety procedures, regulations, and transparency very seriously; we follow the federal regulations and protocols of recreational states such as Colorado and Oregon. Our products are tested multiple times following each process. In a DEA-certified lab, we test for metals, pesticides, solvents, and any unwanted debris. Those results are then put onto QR codes on the packages of ATLRx products so that you know what is in our products. In retail, we embrace the educational measures of this industry, safety always being our number one priority. Nothing even lands in the store if it isn’t an immaculate product. We look out for your better interest by providing a piece of paper that tells you it is a federally legal product within the Farm Bill of 2018 and a dosing chart in case you need a guide. Transparency is how we have set ourselves apart in the industry.
