Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a cannabinoid that is found in cannabis plants. While there is limited research on the effects of THCV on smoking cessation specifically, some studies have suggested that it may have potential as a smoking cessation aid.
One study published in 2013 found that THCV reduced the motivation to consume nicotine in rodents, suggesting that it may be useful in reducing nicotine dependence. Another study published in 2018 found that THCV decreased the rewarding effects of nicotine in humans, which could potentially help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms during smoking cessation.
However, it\’s worth noting that the research on THCV and smoking cessation is still in its early stages, and more studies are needed to fully understand its potential benefits and risks. It\’s also important to consult with a healthcare professional before using THCV or other cannabis-based products for smoking cessation, as they may interact with other medications or have side effects that need to be carefully managed.
