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.
CBGV molecular structure
What is CBGV?
Cannabigerovarin (CBGV), a minor cannabinoid, is the varin version of cannabigerol (CBG). It results from CBGVA, the "meta" acidic precursor in cannabis that also morphs into CBDVA (which results in cannabidivarin, or CBDV) and THCVA (producing tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV). Under the right environmental conditions, CBGV may morph into cannabidiol (CBD).
"The scant research that is available for CBGV indicates that it may play a role in treating cancer, dry skin, and pain."
The scant research that is available for CBGV indicates that it may play a role in treating cancer, dry skin, and pain. More studies are needed to clarify the biochemical role of CBGV, with a focus on clinical trials involving human subjects.
