Cannabidivarin has been researched to aid people who suffer from epilepsy. Interestingly enough, CBD and CBDV isolate both work as anticonvulsants, which means they do not bind with the CB1 or CB2 receptors. However, these cannabinoids work with our TRPV1 and TRPV2 receptors. TRPV1 plays a major role in mediating epilepsy in the hippocampus. CBDV desensitizes the T receptors which reduces epileptic activity in the brain which causes a reduction in seizures.
Will CBD-V get you high?:
No, CBDV is considered non-psychoactive since it does not create any euphoric effects similar to CBD or any forms of THC.
The potential benefits of CBDV include:
As stated above, cannabidivarin is a medicinal cannabinoid since it does not have psychoactive effects and binds with receptors that can aid in reducing seizures. It also seems that CBDV can provide relief for Crohn’s disease, HIV/AIDS, and sclerosis (disease of brain and spinal cord).
other potential benefits:
- May reduces the frequency and severity of seizures
- May help with nausea
- May reduce inflammation
