CBGV (Cannabigerovarin)

Cannabigerovarin (CBGV) is a lesser-known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is structurally similar to cannabigerol (CBG), one of the major cannabinoids found in cannabis, but with a slight variation in its molecular structure. CBGV is considered a minor cannabinoid, meaning it is typically found in lower concentrations compared to major cannabinoids like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

Like other cannabinoids, CBGV is biosynthesized in the trichomes of the cannabis plant, which are small resinous glands found on the surface of the flowers and leaves. It is formed through a process of biosynthesis from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which serves as a precursor to several other cannabinoids. Specifically, CBGV is the result of the enzymatic conversion of CBGA by an enzyme called CBGV synthase.
