    FAQs | Frequent Asked Questions

    Research is still ongoing on the topic of CBD gummies and other products and weight management, but many of the known benefits of CBD may help support healthy living and may assist in reaching goals related to weight loss and fitness.*

    For instance, CBD’s ability to soothe tension or relieve discomfort may be useful in helping you maintain a more rigorous exercise routine or avoid unhealthy habits related to stress and emotional uncertainty.* 

    With the proper formulations and the help of certain natural ingredients, CBD may work to help support internal balance, which in turn can make it easier to stick to weight management goals.* 

    In other words, simply taking CBD oil is not a quick fix for weight loss or something that will instantly boost metabolism. However, using high-quality CBD as part of your weight management program could give you some additional leverage in staying balanced, focused, and more likely to reach these goals through other forms of support.*

    Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THC-V) is a prominent cannabinoid from the cannabis plant, and one of hottest current topics in the field of cannabis research. THC-V is similar in structure to other cannabinoids, but it’s typically found in far lower concentrations in most plant strains, making it difficult to isolate and infuse into products.*

    Most people interested in THC-V are focused mainly on the beneficial properties of the compound and will seek out hemp extracts that feature higher ratios of THC-V, along with CBD and other milder cannabinoids for well-being.

    The benefits of THC-V for weight loss management have brought this compound into the spotlight in recent years, earning it the name “diet weed,” among other nicknames. THC-V may help support healthy appetite regulation–a promising feature for those looking for support on their weight loss journey.*

    Food intake is the main reason why weight management becomes a problem for many people, while issues with blood sugar or blood pressure arise later on. THC-V is not an approved treatment for any of these issues, but it may have the potential to help support general efforts to lose weight or ward off weight gain.*

    Keep in mind that THC-V is rarely isolated and benefits from the presence of other cannabinoids like CBD to tap into the entourage effect. This means you get general health and wellness support from balancing the endocannabinoid system while also benefiting from the unique properties of THC-V.* 

    While THC-V supplements are hard to find, our Trim product collection is on the cutting edge of hemp extract formulations that put THC-V first. Our Full Spectrum Trim Tincture is one of the few products emphasizing the power of THC-V and other useful compounds like turmeric to stay on track with weight management.*

    How are THC and CBD different?

    THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD are often lumped together, as they’re the two most prominent compounds in the cannabis plant. While they are both cannabinoids by definition, their structures and effects vary dramatically, to the point that their legal classifications are completely different.

    THC is known as the psychoactive component of cannabis, producing intoxicating effects associated with a standard marijuana high. Even in small amounts, you can expect haziness, perception alteration, and memory impairment when taking THC in any form.*

    CBD oil, alternatively, offers the many therapeutic benefits of cannabis without producing intoxicating effects. While CBD interacts with similar receptor groups of the endocannabinoid system, it binds more loosely with CB1 and CB2, keeping you mentally alert and able to navigate life unimpaired.*

    While CBD and THC are often paired together, hemp extracts vary in their ratios and concentrations of these two compounds. However, remember that THC is known for producing a stronger emotional reaction to food and altering our sense of satiety, meaning it’s not a smart option for weight management.*

    How are THC and THC-V different?

    THC is usually associated with munchies and reduced motivation, making it the opposite of what you want from a weight management support supplement.

    THC works by binding directly with CB1 receptors while also interacting with CB2 receptors, producing significant changes in sensory perception and other faculties. More often than not, consuming THC results in a sedentary state where things seem slowed down, and snacks become far more appealing.

    THC-V differs in how it interacts with endocannabinoid receptors and does not trigger a psychoactive response. Its effects are overall far milder and may have a positive effect on things like motivation, metabolism, and more. While THC and THC-V seem similar on the surface, their effects could not be more different regarding weight management.

    How does THC-V work in the body?

    THC-V is structured to interact more mildly with receptors in the endocannabinoid system, whereas THC binds directly with CB1 and CB2. More specifically, THC-V may inhibit some of the reactions produced by CB1 receptors from THC, meaning that it has an inverse impact on sensations like appetite and satiety.*

    The result is an appetite suppressant effect that has earned THC-V much of its attention in recent years. THC-V also provides some of the benefits associated with CBD, such as soothing sensations and reduced discomfort that can bring you closer to wellness goals.*

    Whether you take CBD oil before or after eating is up to you, and in most cases, you won’t notice significant differences based on your timing. However, if weight management is your main goal in taking CBD products, you may want to consider taking your hemp extract supplements before a meal to feel more balanced and in control.

    The point of the CBD lifestyle is that you can take these supplements at any time, provided you’re using the right formulations with best practices as intended.*

    CBD is not a weight loss supplement in a pure sense, but you can use it in several ways to support your weight management goals.

    Taking CBD in the morning, for example, can provide some extra alertness, focus, and motivation to move forward with your day with healthy habits in mind. CBD is also an increasingly popular part of a pre-workout or post-workout ritual, helping keep the ECS balanced during strenuous physical activity.*

    CBD for weight loss may also be used in your evening routine when the temptation to overeat may arise. Pure CBD, along with terpenes and other organic ingredients, may help you stick to a healthy diet and fight off those cravings. Using CBD wisely in these different scenarios is key to getting the most that this compound has to offer.*

    CBD has not been shown to impact appetite directly, for better or worse. Instead, CBD offers general support to the endocannabinoid system and may help with some of the emotional aspects of cravings and appetite control.*

    On the other hand, THC-V has more considerable, studied effects on appetite management, making it a better choice to add to a weight loss regimen. You’ll find that our top-selling THC-V supplements include a balance of THC-V and other cannabinoids to reap the benefits of the entourage effect while leaving delta-9 THC out of the picture.
