World’s first pure THCV product for sale online
THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is a rare cannabinoid with a lot of potential and a lot of people interested in finding it. Believed to act as an appetite suppressing stimulant, cannabis strains high in THCV are much sought after. But, until now, it was impossible to purchase a product made with pure THCV.
We normally wouldn’t toot our own horns – at least not so loudly – but, Rare Cannabinoid Company has some pretty exciting news for the future of THCV. Rare Cannabinoid Company has launched the world’s first pure THCV product and a one-to-one THCV plus full spectrum Hawaiian CBD oil tincture. Both THCV products can be purchased online and in stores.
THCV – not to be confused with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol: the psychoactive component in cannabis and hemp) – is an extremely rare cannabinoid. In addition to its reported uplifiting, energizing, hunger ablating effects, it is also being studied for use as an antipsychotic and in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes and for bone growth.
‘Sports car of cannabinoids’
Often referred to as the “sports car of cannabinoids” and lauded for its possible potential to help people lose weight, THCV has been widely sought after for decades.
Like CBD and THC, “rare” or “minor” cannabinoids each offer health and wellness benefits and are found in hemp and cannabis plants. However, they naturally occur in much smaller quantities than CBD or THC. THCV has been especially difficult to find and isolate. In fact, just a few years ago, strain hunters traversed the Democratic Republic of Congo by dug-out canoe in search of African landrace cannabis plants high in THCV. However, even those plants only contained 1% THCV. (Learn more about the hunt for THCV here.)
Now, thanks to genetic, scientific and technological advances, Rare Cannabinoid Company is able to make pure THCV tinctures for the first time. You can read the full press release on our THCV products here.
“Rare Cannabinoid Company is extremely excited to be the first to offer THCV on its own,” said Jared Dalgamouni, founder of the brand and its sister company Hawaiian Choice.
“People can now experience this energizing, appetite suppressing cannabinoid in a clear, measured way,” he said.
The announcement comes as Rare Cannabinoid Company was featured in an article on Leafly, the world’s largest cannabis website.
Two types of THCV tinctures
The single extract contains 500mg THCV in organic MCT coconut oil. The blend contains 250mg THCV and 250mg CBD from hemp organically grown on Kauai, nourished by the island’s mineral rich red dirt and tropical rain. The blend also has organic MCT coconut oil and is lightly flavored with organic, food-grade Italian lemon and wild orange oils.
Cannabinoids tend to work best when taken together. There is something called the “entourage effect,” which means that when consumed in unison, cannabinoids amplify each other and become more than the sum of their individual parts. For this reason, the single extract is flavorless for seamless blending with other full or broad spectrum CBD or THC oils. Meanwhile, the blend is a great option for people who want a complete cannabinoid supplement straight off the shelf.
Third party lab reports can be found on the company’s web site for full peace of mind that each tincture contains what it is supposed to and nothing else.
Rare cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBC
Rare Cannabinoid Company also offers CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene) and a full spectrum CBD (cannabidiol) base oil from rare Hawaiian hemp.
Research into rare cannabinoids is ongoing, but they are believed to offer the following benefits:
CBN: may act as a sedative assisting with relaxation and sleep and may also be taken for pain.
CBG: has anti-bacterial properties and at least one study showed effectiveness against superbug MRSA. It may also assist with reducing inflammation and studies on CBG show promise in fighting cancer.
CBC: may regulate or elevate mood and improve skin conditions including acne. Studies on CBC also show promise in fighting cancer.
Mix and match for optimal results
Research into rare cannabinoids is growing rapidly and more and more are being isolated and made available to the public. In fact, Rare Cannabinoid Company was started by Hawaii’s most popular CBD brand, Hawaiian Choice, in response to customers’ desire to try these promising compounds.
“Each of these rare cannabinoids is believed to offer a different physical or mental benefit. So, people can mix and match them according to their needs,” said Dalgamouni.
Rare Cannabinoid Company is currently offering free shipping on all orders and is sold in locations in Hawaii and across the mainland United States.
Hawaiian Choice’s broad spectrum (zero THC) CBD oil tinctures, topicals and edibles can be found in more than 150 locations from New York to Tokyo including at luxury hotel spas, including the Four Seasons Maui and Grand Hyatt Kauai.
Stores interested in stocking either brand can find wholesale application forms on both web sites.
