CBD, or cannabidiol, is a phytocompound found in cannabis plants. CBD is a cannabinoid compound which is known to bond with CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When CBD bonds with the CB2 receptors, a lipid is formed which helps do a number of things in the body.
THCVA, in particular, joins the ranks of CBD, THC, CBC, CBGA, THCV and more cannabinoids that are being researched for their usefulness to the body. While CBD and THC are the most well-known of the cannabinoids, as science has continued to expand into cannabis research, and molecular isolation has improved, other cannabinoids have been able to be explored more fully.

While primary terpenes largely influence how any individual plant smells, and effect a plant's growth and development, secondary terpenes aid the plant's defense. Whereas the unique aroma carried by each cannabis plant is a product of the primary terpenes present within the plant, the medicinal value of any given cannabis strain is a product of both primary and secondary terpenes combined.
