Cannabivarin, also known as cannabivarol or CBV, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in minor amounts in the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. It is an analog of cannabinol (CBN) with the side chain shortened by two methylene bridges (-CH2-). CBV is an oxidation product of tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV, THV).[1]

Chemistry[edit]

It has no double bond isomers nor stereoisomers.

Legal status[edit]

It is not scheduled by Convention on Psychotropic Substances.

United States[edit]

CBV is not scheduled at the federal level in the United States,[2] but it could be considered an analog (of THC), in which case, sales or possession intended for human consumption could be prosecuted under the Federal Analog Act.
