You have goals and responsibilities and sometimes could benefit from an extra kick of drive and motivation. Introducing, THCV, the “sports car of cannabinoids.”

With the rate at which new cannabinoids like THCV are becoming available, you may be unaware of THCV and the exciting benefits it can provide. But you can always rely on us to provide you with everything you need to know about the latest cannabinoids and be a reliable source for all your cannabinoid needs.

Despite the similarities in the abbreviation, THCV is not the same as THC. Instead, it has unique benefits that are driving its popularity and increasing its demand.

What is THCV?

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in hemp. It has a chemical formula of C19H26O2, and despite being discovered decades ago, has only recently become more widely available. For years, the compound had an almost mythical status and historically was largely used as a stimulant by equatorial African locals.

It wasn’t until recently that THCV became mainstream among those who use hemp for wellness. But the compound has been known to scientists since 1970.

THCV might not be as popular as THC or CBD, at least not yet, but considering its entry into the hemp industry, it’s safe to say it’s off to a good start.

Like other cannabinoids like Delta 8 and Delta 10, THCV has a similar chemical structure to THC and may also have some similarities. But unless taken in high amounts, it has no type of euphoric effects. It has managed to be unique enough to carve out a niche for itself among anyone looking for a new type of stimulating experience.

How is THCV Produced?

THCV is produced by hemp plants but in low concentrations. Like other hemp compounds, THCV can be extracted through chromatography. The process allows manufacturers to separate the compound. This process ensures the THCV extracted is pure and free from contaminants during the extraction process.

THCV is also the final product of CBGVA (Cannabigerovarin acid). CBGV converts to THCVA and eventually becomes THCV when exposed to heat or light.

THC Vs. THCV – What’s the Difference?

If you're already a big fan of hemp cannabinoids like THC, you might wonder why you should also consider THCV. Although the two compounds are close in chemical appearance, that’s where the similarities end.

THCV is an analog of THC, meaning they look alike but act differently in your body. THCV has most of the same compounds in its genetic makeup as THC, yet with a shorter hydrocarbon chain.

Both compounds are formed via chemical reactions, among other acids and enzymes in the hemp plant. THCV is derived from CBGVA, created when geranyl pyrophosphate interacts with divarinolic acid instead of olivetolic acid, as with THC.

The differences in chemical reactions mean THCV has a much higher boiling point than THC. Therefore, if you decide to vape THCV, you need to use higher temperatures in your vaporizer.

The two also have wide differences when it comes to effects. While THC has noticeable euphoric properties that promote a sense of relaxation, THCV does not create euphoric feelings and instead promotes a sense of stimulation and focus. THC also tends to enhance appetite, while THCV can help keep munchies at bay.


THCA is another lovely compound that is also making its mark in the hemp industry and can easily be confused with THCV. THCA is the acidic form of THC.

Much like THCV, THCA has numerous wellness and balance benefits without causing any type of noticeable elevated effects. However, it is not the same compound as THCV. It is also not as mainstream as THCV, but it is only a matter of time before THCA also grows in popularity.

How Does THCV Work?

Like all cannabinoids, THCV works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a regulatory network that plays a key role in maintaining the body’s internal balance. By directly interacting with cannabinoid receptors, THCV provides energized feelings that drive motivation and focus.

Experts believe that THCV also can play a role in supporting more responsible eating decisions. Low servings of THCV may block the CB1 cannabinoid receptor, known to stimulate appetite, from binding with other compounds.

Benefits of THCV

THCV tends to have a biphasic effect which means it has different effects at different servings. Although many cannabinoids appear to have the same effects, THCV is the best example of biphasic effects. The benefits of THCV will vary depending on the amount of THCV you consume.

Appetite support

One of the main reasons people consider consuming THCV is because of its appetite support benefits. It is particularly used to promote healthier eating decisions.

Uplifting and energizing effects

When taken in small amounts, THCV can provide some much-needed jolt of energy to keep you running through the day. It complements your morning routine, ensuring you have enough energy to keep you running all day long.

You can consider taking a higher THCV serving for a more clear-headed and laser-focused effect. However, we only recommend this after you’ve given your body enough time to get used to the new compound.

Discomfort support

Like THC and other cannabinoids in the hemp plant, most THCV consumers have also reported experiencing some discomfort support after consuming THCV products.

Calming effects

THCV also proves effective in helping to calm down a busy mind and steadying your hands. It is perfect for busy days when you want to quiet unneeded thoughts and focus on the important tasks at hand.

THCV has been associated with numerous other benefits. Remember that THCV works differently in different people, and the effects you feel might not be the same as what another person might feel. With that said, most of the effects that people that have given our range of THCV products a try have experienced have been positive.

Does THCV Have Any Potential Side Effects

There's still a lot to learn about THCV, but there haven't been any serious side effects reported by those already trying out different THCV products.

The most commonly reported effects of taking THCV include uplifting and energizing effects that can help increase motivation and clear-headedness. This is why most people prefer to take THCV products in the morning to increase their productivity and creativity.

In rare cases, consumers have reported mild and temporary undesirable effects that vary depending on the consumer and the type of THCV products taken.

The most commonly reported side effects include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea
  • Itchiness
  • Vomiting

Most of these side effects are associated with taking too much THCV too soon or buying substandard THCV products. Take time to find the best and most reputable brands when purchasing THCV products.

Once you find the right brand, the next task is determining how much THCV you should take. Start with small servings and gradually build up after assessing how your body feels after taking THCV. Building tolerance and your intake gradually will help ensure a great experience.

Is THCV Legal?

Yes, THCV is federally legal. Thanks to the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, which, among other things, distinguished hemp-derived from marijuana-derived products. The bill effectively made most THC analogs legal as long as they were hemp-derived and contained less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by dry weight. 

This effectively makes THCV federally legal in the United States as long as the products you choose are hemp-derived and don’t contain more than 0.3% of Delta 9 THC.

Because THCV is federally legal, you can buy your THCV products from Koi and have them shipped to your address.

Although federally legal, states have separate laws regulating THCV. Make sure you do your research on your state regulations before buying.

Does THCV Get You High?

THCV produces psychoactive effects. But the effects are not the same as those you would get with THC analogs. THCV only interacts with CB1 receptors when consumed in high doses. 

When taken in small amounts, the cannabinoid doesn’t interact with CB1 receptors and, therefore, doesn’t produce any uplifting effects.

When you consume enough THCV to produce uplifting effects, they are mild and short-lived. The effects are best described as motivating and energizing. Because of this nature of uplifting effects, THCV is commonly recommended for daytime consumption to provide you with an energy boost to power you through draining tasks. 

Will THCV Show Up on a Drug Test?

Yes, there's a high chance of THCV triggering a false positive test result. This is because when you consume THCV, it breaks down in the body into a metabolite called THC-COOH. This is the same metabolite that THC breaks down into and the one that drug tests check for.

THCV Dosage Guide

The amount of THCV you should take depends on various factors, such as personal preferences, body weight, and even the reason for taking THCV. Because these cannabinoids differ from others you might have tried, it’s always good to start with a small amount, observe the effects, and adjust accordingly. 

Koi THCV Gummies: Edible, chewy treats infused with THCV and ACV come in various flavors and are available in 10mg of THCV per piece. To many people, this is a moderate serving. But, because of the consumption methods, different absorption, and metabolic speeds, you should take time to determine an amount that works just for you. 

The best approach in determining the right THCV serving for you is starting with half a gummy. Give yourself up to one hour to observe the effects of the gummies before taking another serving. You can take this serving for a couple of days, and if the effects are not as expected, you can increase your serving gradually. 

THCV Servings Chart

Lower doses of THCV, between 5-7.5mg, act as CB1 receptor antagonists, meaning they can block the part of your brain that stimulates appetite.

In higher amounts, the effects are similar to those of Delta 9 THC, which include an increase in appetite, high energy increase, and euphoria. You may start experiencing these effects when you take 15 to 20mg of THCV.

When determining how much THCV you should take, you should factor in your tolerance. If you’ve tried other types of THC like Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC, how your body responds to them might give you a good idea of what your tolerance is to similar cannabinoids like THCV.

You should also consider why you’re taking THCV. Some effects and benefits, such as appetite suppression, require a low intake. If you take too much, the effects you feel might be different.  

What to Consider When Buying TCHV Products

You shouldn’t take any chances with your THCV experience. You should always go for the best products from the best brands in the market. Whether you’re shopping for THCV for the first time or looking for something new, there are a few things you should look out for when purchasing like:

Federal Compliance

High-quality and responsible hemp products will be federally compliant. For THCV products to be legal, they should contain no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight and be hemp-derived.

Brand reputation

As you might have noticed, new brands are cropping up with the booming hemp market every day. It’s tough to keep up with each brand unless you dig up the brand’s reputation online and rely on the experience and reviews of other THCV connoisseurs who have tried the same brand. So, before purchasing any THCV products, always run a quick background check on the brand to see what other hemp enthusiasts think about the brand and its products.

Check lab reports

At this point, third-party lab reports have pretty much become an industry standard. Every brand uses them to verify their product's THCV concentration, quality, and composition. Every reputable brand has its product subjected to third-party lab testing. If the brand you’re considering buying from doesn’t have third-party lab reports, that’s a huge red flag!

Type of THCV products

The THCV market isn’t as diverse as the THC or CBD markets. But it’s rapidly expanding, which might pose a challenge for beginners who must sort through the different types of products available. If you’ve tried other hemp products like gummies and fell in love with them, your safest approach would be to get THCV gummies. Just ensure you start with the suggested serving and build up gradually if necessary.


When considering the cost of THCV products, you’re not looking for the cheapest products because sometimes the price of the product also speaks to the quality of the product. The prices should be affordable and competitive. If you’re unsure what a reasonable price is, you can compare prices from various brands to see the standard.

Yes. Our THCV products are manufactured in adherence to the federal 2018 Farm Bill. We ensure the extract we use is hemp-derived and the THC concentration doesn’t exceed 0.3% by dry weight, as mandated by federal law. That makes our THCV products legal to buy and use.
THCV doesn’t have uplifting effects when used in suggested servings and is used mainly for its energizing effects. Evidence suggests that it can have some euphoric effects in rare cases when consumed in very high amounts.
The most common reason for taking THCV is its uplifting and energizing effects that can be helpful for focus and motivation, and for promoting overall wellness and balance. Research into the full benefits of THCV is still in the early stages, and there is still much to learn about the benefits of THCV.
When taken in suggested servings, THCV is generally well-tolerated. Evidence suggests that THCV products are safe to use, provided they’re made responsibly by a reputable brand and rigorously tested by a third-party lab. Also, it’s always recommended to speak to your doctor before consuming any cannabinoid products about any concerns you might have.
There is no universal consensus on whether THCV products can yield a positive drug test. It is recommended to avoid any cannabinoid products if you are subject to testing. Most drug tests screen for metabolites of THC and because THCV is so closely related to THC, it’s reasonable to assume that THCV could result in a positive test.
