Cannabichromevarin (CBCV) is one of many types of marijuana available. Researchers at the University of Nagasaki in Thailand isolated CBSV from a cannabis plant in 1975. CBCV is quite popularly known as an anticonvulsant.
It is a propyl cannabinoid, which sets it apart from CBC. The cannabinoid exists is low percentages in cannabis strains when compared to CBD and THC. CBCV, however, offers benefits that are similar to those of CBC.
Only in the past few years, researchers have been thoroughly studying cannabinoids in cannabis plants. They have discovered that there are over a hundred cannabinoids in a cannabis plant. As CBSV and CBC share similar molecular structures, they may also offer similar benefits. If this proves to be true, then users can benefit from the healing properties of CBSV without experiencing any form of intoxication.
Though the specific details about CBSV and its effects on human body is not known completely, some educated presumptions and guesses can be made about the medical benefits it offers. CBSV can prove to be very beneficial for people diagnosed with health conditions such as cancer, arthritis, insomnia, chronic pain, depression and osteoporosis.
In addition to these, CBSV can prove to be helpful in coping with muscular dystrophy, eczema, epileptic seizures, and Crohn’s disease. One significant use case of CBSV includes its applications in relieving seizures in infants and children.
