Best THCV products for appetite control 2024

Table of contents

Did you ever think you’d see the day when cannabis-based products could help curb cravings – rather than encouraging a munchies binge? Well, we’re there. And we’ve got data to prove it. 

Real-world data on THCV and CBG

Earlier this year, we collected real-world data (RWD) from Cannigma readers on the effects of the combination of minor cannabinoids THCV and CBG

During a 4-week engagement, 95 participants tried Slumber’s Crave Less, a tincture with 15mg each of THCV and CBG per dose. With limited clinical research on THCV and CBG, this user data gives us some valuable insights into effects, side effects, and dosing. 

Here’s what we learned: Participants reported positive outcomes while using the tincture, including decreased appetite and improved control over cravings. The Cannigma users who tried the product struggled with controlling eating habits such as mindless eating and late-night binging, and reported improvements in the severity and frequency of these habits during the course of the engagement. 

The data also highlighted a substantial drop in overall appetite, with a reported 43% decrease on a 0-10 scale, and a 17% average decrease on “The Power of Food Scale,” a validated measurement for food cravings. 

So if you’re interested in using a cannabis product to curb cravings, the data seems to indicate you’ve come to the right place. 

THCV and CBG for focus and energy

Beyond appetite control, Slumber’s THCV and CBG tincture demonstrated overwhelmingly positive effects on energy and focus. Participants reported a 31% increase in energy levels and a 26% improvement in focus over the four weeks.

Stress reduction was another notable outcome, with a 50% decrease in reported levels by the end of the trial. This reduction in stress correlated with lower instances of stress eating, and more thoughtful eating habits. 

While scientific research on THCV and CBG is limited, these real-world data findings align with existing literature. THCV, often referred to as “the sports car of cannabis,” produces energizing effects without inducing the munchies or sedation. CBG, known as “the mother of all cannabinoids,” has a focused and calming effect, activating the body’s fight-or-flight system without causing anxiety, sleepiness, or hunger.

Here’s what you could have to look forward to: At the end of the three-week trial, 90% of participants reported fewer episodes of overeating, 77% found the tincture effective in decreasing appetite, 60% experienced improved focus throughout the day, and 60% felt Slumber’s Crave Less tincture enhanced their overall quality of life.

Armed with insights from data, finding a cannabis product that meets your needs can be that much easier. Ultimately, it’s up to you to find the product, consumption method, and dose that’s right for you. 

Our advice as always – start low and go slow. THCV can be mildly intoxicating, so you’re better off to increase gradually until you find a dose that does the trick.
