The Best THCV Gummies & Oils for Weight Loss
CBD and THC have been hogging the cannabinoid spotlight for a while now, but there’s a new hemp-derived player in town that is said to offer some serious weight loss benefits – THCV. Short for tetrahydrocannabivarin, THCV is known as “skinny pot” or “diet weed” for its energizing, appetite suppressing properties. Find out how THCV weight loss may work for you and learn about the best THCV gummies and THCV oil tinctures in this article.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine says: “THCV decreases appetite, increases satiety, and up-regulates energy metabolism, making it a clinically useful remedy for weight loss and management of obesity and type 2 diabetic patients.”
If you’d like to try THCV, Rare Cannabinoid Company was the first to formulate a purified THCV oil tincture. The Hawaiian brand also offers a THCV blend with full spectrum Maui-grown CBD and the strongest THCV gummies. Known for its apothecary of cannabinoids, the premium company also sells gummies and oils of CBN (for sleep), CBG (for discomfort), CBC (for mood), CBDA (for nausea), CBGA (for immune support), CBDV (studied for autism), and terpene-only oils for relaxation and relief from occasional inflammation.

What is THCV?
THCV is a rare cannabinoid that is most abundant in African landrace cannabis sativas. Along the Congo River, it is used by farmers and laborers for energy and to stave off hunger. Until recently it was extremely difficult to find outside the region, with a European cannabis strain hunter even dying of malaria while looking for it in 2017.
What does THCV feel like?
Many people say that THCV feels like caffeine without the jitters or upset stomach. People taking THCV oils and gummies say they feel more alert and focussed with increased energy. They also say they are not hungry for hours after taking it.
What are THCV effects? THCV benefits?
There are dozens of cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis and they all interact with the human body’s endocannabinoid system. For example, THC is the main psychoactive component in cannabis and it turns on the CB1 receptor. This causes intoxication (getting high) and an increase in hunger widely known as the munchies. THCV weight loss occurs because THCV oil has the opposite effect on the endocannabinoid system. It turns off the CB1 receptor. THCV thereby increases energy and focus and suppresses hunger.
THCV Weight Loss Potential
THCV’s unique effects on the endocannabinoid system appear to make it an effective weight loss tool. Scientific studies have found that rodents given THCV ate less and lost weight. THCV also shows potential for helping type 2 diabetes.
THCV oil for addiction? Other THCV benefits?
Another study found that THCV reduced nicotine cravings in rodents and concluded that THCV may be helpful for addictions to other substances.
Interestingly, another study also found that THCV may have antipsychotic properties.
THCV side effects?
Since THCV is known to suppress appetite and aid weight loss, one should not take it if they have an eating disorder. As a stimulating cannabinoid, THCV may also keep some people awake at night if they take THCV gummies or oils too late in the day.
THCV has been compared to pharmaceutical obesity drug Rimonabant. However, while it suppresses appetite in a similar way to Rimonabant, THCV has not been found to increase the risk of depression like that drug. This is due to the way that THCV affects the neural reward system as seen in this scientific study.
Where to buy THCV?
Safe and effective THCV gummies and THCV oil tinctures are available online from Rare Cannabinoid Company. All products are produced in a certified Good Manufacturing Procedures facility and are third-party lab tested for purity and potency.

CBD vs THCV
CBD is best known for promoting calm, balance, and reducing occasional pain and inflammation. Although CBD benefits are different from THCV benefits, they work very well together.
A scientific study found that when THCV is paired with CBD they work synergistically to reduce hunger. The THCV CBD combination also reduced the munchies for people who consumed appetite-inducing THC.
Full spectrum CBD oils and cannabinoid combinations work well thanks to the entourage effect. This is when cannabinoids work together to increase the benefits and effectiveness of each other.
THC vs THCV
We mentioned above the key differences between THC and THCV, namely that THC gets you high and increases hunger. But, some people enjoy combining THC with THCV for an energetic, uplifting feeling. Taking a THCV gummy or a few sprays of THCV oil along with one’s favorite THC edible or cannabis product can re-create or supercharge the feel of cannabis sativa strains like Durban Poison, Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, Super Lemon Haze, Strawberry Cough, Green Crack and Maui Wowie.
Delta-8-THC vs THCV
Many people ask what the difference is between THCV and Delta-8-THC. Although both are usually derived from hemp, they are extremely different.
Delta-8-THC, also known as Delta 8 or rare Delta 8 is the hemp-derived version of “regular” Delta-9-THC, which comes from cannabis. Coming from hemp, Delta-8-THC is legal at the federal level, but many states have banned it. THCV is fully legal at the federal and state levels.
For those interested in THCV for weight loss, Delta-8-THC does the exact opposite. Many people report that it increases the munchies even more than regular Delta-9-THC!
Delta-8-THC is also far cheaper than THCV. It retails for around one-quarter the price of THCV. Sadly, we have seen that some companies market their products as THCV oils or gummies but their lab reports show that the products actually contain Delta-8-THC. Not only is this cheating the customer, but it could be very dangerous if someone gets high when they weren’t intending to.
Instead of buying Delta-8-THC, we recommend purchasing THCV oils and gummies from Rare Cannabinoid Company. If you want to add them to a THC product we recommend getting THC from a licensed cannabis dispensary as it’s safer than the rare Delta 8 products sold online and in stores.
