CBDV (Cannabidivarin) is a cannabinoid similar to CBD (cannabidiol) originating from hemp or cannabis. Cannabidivarin (CBDV) like other cannabinoids, contributes to the therapeutic properties of hemp. CBDV and CBD are similar in structure. CBDV also has no psychoactive effects when used in isolation. CBDV can be derived from cannabis strains that contain a high concentration of CBD.
There are several properties that CBDV possesses which are beneficial to the health. Some studies indicate the anticonvulsant properties of CBDV. This trait enables CBDV to help with feelings of nausea. It also helps to manage symptoms such as seizures that ensue from epilepsy. CBDV inhibits the triggers of seizures as a result of its anticonvulsant properties, offering relief without any psychotic side effects. CBDV reacts with the TRPV1 (transient receptor) receptor to reduce the incidence of convulsion, regulate body temperature, and relieve pain. CBDV also has neurological benefits that can remedy instances of memory-related illnesses. CBDV helps with the treatment of some symptoms related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It alleviates symptoms, such as repetitive behavioral defects, cognitive complications, and social communication challenges.
In some studies, CBDV showed potential in relieving some symptoms of Duchene muscular dystrophy (DMD), such as skeletal muscle deterioration and chronic inflammation. It enhances muscle movement functions and reduces inflammation. The facts about its usability for the aforementioned conditions are still limited. The potentials are numerous but seeking expert opinion on its use is important.
