What is CBCV?
CBCV: 3D Rendering
CBCV is known first and foremost to be an effective anticonvulsant. It’s a propyl cannabinoid, which differentiates it from CBC, CBCV’s predecessor and counterpart. Being a propyl cannabinoid, it simply has a different molecular structure than its predecessor. It has similar usefulness as CBC but differs in some ways that you may find interesting and warrant further explanation.
CBCV: History and Facts
Cannabichromevarin was discovered in 1975 in Thailand. Researchers at the University of Nagasaki isolated it from a cannabis plant at that time. Very little research has been performed on this cannabinoid, likely because it exists in much lower percentages in cannabis strains in comparison to CBD and THC (Delta-8-THC and Delta-9-THC).
For many of the years, since the cannabinoid was discovered, it wasn’t easily accessible for research due to restrictions against marijuana. Only in the most recent years have scientists begun doing in-depth studies of the cannabinoids in cannabis plants, including hemp and marijuana. It is now known that there are more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
Whether CBCV can be used with any effect, separately from the other well-known THC or CBD cannabinoids, is yet to be determined. It may only work as part of an entourage. More research is absolutely necessary at this point in time.

What Do We Know About CBCV
CBCV is not psychoactive, so you will have no high from using this cannabinoid as you would with THC. You won’t need to worry about operating heavy machinery or anything like that, and for children, it would be especially safe.
CBCV doesn’t need to be heated (and should not be), nor smoked to be useful. This also makes it more friendly to those who are minors in the care of an adult. They may be able to use this cannabinoid in place of using medical marijuana which could have a negative impact on their normal daily lives.
THC is not well tolerated in children and it is prevalent in medical marijuana. Children also shouldn’t be encouraged to inhale or smoke anything. CBCV could be a big game-changer in their treatment.

What Conditions Might CBCV Treat?
It can be deduced, with a reasonable amount of accuracy, that CBCV will have the same or similar effect on people as CBC because of their close relationship. This means that CBCV may have a positive impact on the following conditions:
- Crohn’s disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Sleep cycle issues
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Muscular Dystrophy
This is a list of things that CBC and CBD have both been shown to impact. The potential for controlling seizures, particularly in children, is of curiosity to researchers right now. This could be a real breakthrough in treating kids with epilepsy if the results are as scientists believe they may be.
CBCV: The Legalities
As of right now, there are no laws specifically pertaining to CBCV. The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) actually considers CBD, THC, and all other cannabinoids to be illegal. If you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and you have a medical card that proves you are prescribed medical marijuana, then you are fine.
That said, the vast majority of states have specifically made the sale of CBD and non-psychoactive cannabinoids legal.
