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.
CBDV molecular structure
What is CBDV?
Cannabidivarin (CBDV) is an isomer of cannabidiol (CBD) that was first isolated in 1968 by German scientists. It is considered a minor cannabinoid because it is typically available in very low volumes from the loose-leaf and concentrated cannabis products readily available from legal retail dispensaries and underground ("legacy") sources.
"In the lives of modern cannabis consumers, CBDV is more theory than reality, with reliable sources of meaningful volumes of this cannabinoid in short supply."
In the lives of modern cannabis consumers, CBDV is more theory than reality, with reliable sources of meaningful volumes of this cannabinoid in short supply. It is purported to be produced by landrace cultivars ("strains") of marijuana featuring undiluted genetics (that have not been crossbred with other cultivars) and that might be labeled indica. The lower the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level, the more likely there will be CBDV present.
