There are so many different cannabinoids contained in hemp and cannabis plants that it can be really hard to keep track of. Two cannabinoids that most people probably don't know too much about are THCA and THCV. These are both naturally occurring cannabinoids that can be found in hemp or cannabis plants. Today, we are here to do a side-by-side comparison of THCA and THCV to figure out what they're all about. However, before we do a comparison, we're going to take a look at these two cannabinoids individually to figure out exactly what they have in store for you. What are these cannabinoids? How are these cannabinoids made? What are their benefits and effects? We will answer these questions and more below.
- THCV may be slightly intoxicating, but is only 25% as potent as Delta-9 THC.
- THCA is the precursor to Delta-9 THC, but will not get you high if not decarboxylated.
- Although both cannabinoids should not be very intoxicating, they do have a variety of potential medical benefits worth exploring.
