THCV Edibles – The Craving To End All Cravings
Discovered in the 1970s and charming scientists ever since, THCV is a fascinating compound whose full benefits we haven’t discovered. Helpful, natural, and balanced, THCV is the perfect supplement for those looking to manage their weight—especially in edible form!
What Is THCV?
THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis with completely unique benefits and effects. As a less common cannabinoid primarily found in African sativa, THCV is unlike THC and CBD. This fascinating compound has baffled the cannabis community since its discovery and remains a focus of studies seeking to discover its full potential.
As its name suggests, THCV and THC have similar molecular structures—only differentiated by two carbon atoms— but THCV isn’t really psychoactive like THC. While THC is extremely psychoactive, THCV is estimated to be about 25% as potent. Outside of molecular structure, THC and THCV aren’t too similar.
As a matter of fact, a major difference between THCV and psychoactive cannabinoids containing THC is their influence on appetite. While THC is known for the infamous “munchies,” a spike in appetite resulting in food cravings, THCV does the exact opposite!
Some properties of THCV include:
- Appetite suppressant
- Increasing satiety
- Metabolism regulation
- Anxiety management

Do THCV Edibles Help you Lose Weight?
THCV’s claim to fame is its reputation as a weight loss agent. Because its properties include appetite suppression, metabolism regulation, and increasing satiety, it can be a valuable remedy for weight loss or weight management.
Nicknamed “diet weed,” THCV is theorized to block the CB1 receptor, which is known to stimulate appetite. Users who indulge in THCV edibles report feeling clear-headed without cravings for snacks or sweets.
THCV can be a great tool in any weight loss journey, but it alone cannot guarantee health and moderation. THCV edibles will help you put off that extra weight by suppressing your cravings, but only a healthy diet and regular exercise will ensure you stay healthy.
THCV Edibles vs. THCO Edibles
THCO, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol acetate (or THC-O acetate), is a hemp-derived cannabinoid. Unlike other compounds like delta 8 and delta 10, however, THCO does not occur naturally in the cannabis plant, meaning scientists have to create it synthetically.
This synthetic cannabinoid is known for its strong potency and psychedelic effects, and it comes in many forms—including edibles.
When compared to THCV edibles, THCO edibles are a completely different beast. For starters, THCV edibles are treats derived from hemp with little psychoactive effects, while THCO edibles launch you into orbit with just a bite.
Additionally, THCV edibles work to suppress your appetite and make you feel fuller faster, but THCO products are almost synonymous with the munchies.
All in all, THCO edibles are a fantastic treat if you’re looking to get your mind blown for hours on end, but if you’re more looking for a low-key, clear-minded appetite suppressant, THCV edibles are for you.
THCV Edibles vs. Delta 8 Edibles
Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, or delta 8, is a natural psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp and marijuana plants. With a chemical structure similar to its close relative, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 9), delta 8 is a form of THC—a compound that gets you high. Because delta 8 is found in lower concentrations in cannabis plants, it also has lower contents of THC, which explains its street name “marijuana-lite.”
In edible form, delta 8 is more similar to THCO than it is to THCV. Like THCO edibles, delta 8 edibles are mainly famous for their psychotropic abilities and welcome the munchies with open arms.
Delta 8 edibles may be the move if you’re looking for some buzzy fun that doesn’t quite reach the psychedelic trip of THCO: but, once again, if you’re looking for weight loss aid, THCV edibles are the name of the game.
Are THCV Edibles Safe?
Although there is still much to learn about THCV, researchers infer that THCV’s safety profile is not too different from other cannabinoids. No significant side effects (or deaths, for that matter) have been reported in users consuming THCV.
One of the most important steps to ensure safety when consuming cannabinoids is trusting who you buy them from.
As long as you source your cannabinoids from a reputable source, all hemp-derived products are safe to consume—including THCV edibles!
Because the FDA does not monitor or regulate the distribution of hemp-derived cannabinoids, independent manufacturers set their own safety and quality standards. This is why finding a trustworthy, responsible distributor is an essential step in a safe and positive cannabinoid experience.
Here at Diamond CBD, we take this responsibility very seriously. All of our products are made with safety, quality, and purity in mind and are later third-party lab tested to ensure we meet all of our own rigorous standards. Our lab tests are transparently available on our website for your peace of mind and our accountability.
As long as you buy THCV edibles from Diamond, your safety and satisfaction are guaranteed!
Are THCV Edibles Legal?
Following the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018, hemp and all of its compounds and derivates became legalized. Any compound derived from hemp is currently federally legal in the United States, including THCV!
That being said, state laws may vary, although a vast majority of states agree with the federal consensus regarding hemp products. At this time, THCV is fully legal in 39 states and illegal in 13 states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New York, Rhode Island, Utah, and Vermont.
