Welcome to Cannabinoid Clinic, an education project powered by Higher Learning LV. This series provides cannabis and hemp industry professionals with easily digested cannabinoid profiles that ask little of your time—but provide plenty of science-based information.
There are two categories of cannabinoids: Phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are those produced by cannabis/marijuana/hemp, while endocannabinoids are made by the human body. This series covers both.
CBCV molecular structure
What is CBCV?
Cannabichromevarin (CBCV) is the varin version of cannabichromene (CBC), a cannabinoid that results from the acidic precursor cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). All major cannabinoids feature a varin version, including cannabidivarin (CBDV) and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
"From a hard research perspective, few studies have been conducted since its discovery and relatively little is understood about this cannabinoid."
CBCV, a minor cannabinoid, was discovered in 1975 at the University of Nagasaki in Thailand by researchers who first isolated it from a cannabis plant. From a hard research perspective, few studies have been conducted since its discovery and relatively little is understood about this cannabinoid. However, based on the proven behavior of more researched cannabinoid isomers, including CBD and THC, scientists believe that many of the characteristics of CBC may also exhibited by CBCV.
