Cannabicyclovarin, or CBLV, is a minor, non-psychotropic cannabinoid found in cannabis or hemp. It is specifically located in the resinous trichomes of the plant. As a lesser-known cannabinoid, research on its properties and potential therapeutic uses is still in its research infancy. Therefore, we do not have much direct research on this particular cannabinoid, however, as it is in the CBL class, which means that it is derived from the cannabinoid CBC.
While research on CBLV is limited, insights from CBC studies suggest CBLV might support the body in maintaining certain endocannabinoid levels, such as anandamide. Like other cannabinoids, CBLV may offer potential support for well-being, comfort, and overall health.
In fact, this is how CBLV was first identified in which CBC was irradiated. In 1972, researchers identified CBVL optically colorless and inactive needles. But since then, there have not been considerable efforts to learn more about this varin cannabinoid. However, since there is growing interest in CBL, plus reduced restrictions on marijuana research, it is likely that more information about this cannabinoid will emerge in the coming years.
