Cannabidivarin, also known as CBDV, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in minor amounts in the hemp plant Cannabis sativa.
A recently discovered cannabinoid, CBDV has been the subject of much research into its potential therapeutic properties:
A study led by GW Pharmaceuticals in collaboration with the University of Reading suggested cannabidivarin strongly suppressed seizures in six different experimental models commonly used in epilepsy drug discovery. There are countless studies on CBDV and its anti-covulsant affects, specifically on Epilepsy.
