THCv & THC: Daytrip Combo

THCv & THC: Daytrip Combo

Summer is finally here, and what better way to embrace the sunny days and adventurous spirit than with Daytrip blends? Whether you're spending time with friends, working on a creative project, or on a walk simply savoring the gentle breeze, our Daytrip blends provide a non-sedating flow that guides you into a better mood with a boost in focus perfect for weekday use or active adventures. In this article, we’ll delve into the unique properties of THCv and THC which are found in our Daytrip blend to learn how they harmoniously create a more reliable sativa-like experience.


Understanding the Difference between THCv and THC:

When exploring the world of cannabis, it's essential to grasp the nuances between the different compounds. THC and one of its variants, THCv, both belong to the same family of cannabinoids and offer distinct effects that contribute to the diverse array of cannabis cultivars available today. THC interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, binding to cannabinoid receptors in the brain, resulting in a range of effects such as relaxation, euphoria, and altered perception. On the other hand, THCv, a variant of THC, is a lesser-known cannabinoid found in select cannabis cultivars. While sharing a similar chemical structure with THC, THCv offers a different kind of experience. It interacts with the endocannabinoid system in a unique way, producing effects that differ from traditional THC. THCv's effects are believed to be more nuanced and variable, influenced by factors such as dosage and individual body chemistry. Although further research is needed to fully understand its properties, anecdotal evidence suggests that THCv may offer potential benefits such as heightened focus, increased energy, and a clearer mental state. Some individuals find that THCv can promote a more uplifting and invigorating experience, making it a favorable choice for daytime consumption.

The synergy between THCv and THC:

When THCv is combined with THC, it creates a unique synergy that can enhance the overall effects. THCv has been reported to modulate the psychoactive effects of THC, potentially providing a more clear-headed experience. This combination is particularly appealing for those seeking a balanced state of mind and heightened concentration during their daytime activities.

How Live Resin Potentiates THCv and THC Further?

Live resin plays a pivotal role in maximizing the entourage effect of cannabinoids. Derived from freshly harvested cannabis plants that are immediately frozen, live resin captures a broader spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes compared to traditional extraction methods. This preservation of the plant's natural compounds results in a more robust and dynamic profile. When it comes to our Daytrip blends, the inclusion of live resin ensures that the THC and THCv are accompanied by a symphony of other cannabinoids and terpenes. This rich combination allows for the entourage effect and is believed to amplify the therapeutic potential of cannabis, as the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes can modulate and enhance effects. By harnessing the power of the entourage effect, our Daytrip blends with THCv offer a truly immersive and well-rounded cannabis experience, providing a holistic range of benefits beyond what individual cannabinoids can offer alone.

Why THCv is Recommended for Daytime Use?

Since THCv can be more stimulating, and it has the potential to be an appetite suppressant while inducing a more focused mindset, it’s perfect for daytime use. The inclusion of THCv in our Daytrip blend is carefully crafted to mimic the expected effects people seek when consuming sativa cannabis products. Unfortunately, the cannabis plant is so diverse that simply selecting a sativa product can lead to effects that are not dependable or expected.  With our Daytrip blend, we carefully formulate precise amounts of the included compounds like THCv into our blend every time which creates a more reliable sativa-like effect and experience. It is important to note that our Daytrip blend is not intended for medical purposes, but rather to be used as a tool for enhancing your focus and flow during daily activities.

Vaping vs. Edibles

Understanding the onset times of different consumption methods can help you choose the right option for your needs. When vaping, the effects are typically felt more quickly as the cannabinoids are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs. This immediate onset can be ideal for individuals seeking an instant uplift. However, for those desiring a longer-lasting experience throughout the day, edibles offer a slower release of cannabinoids into the body, resulting in a more prolonged effect. We recommend edibles for individuals who prefer a sustained and subtle elevation that aligns with their daytime pursuits. Using both synergistically to get immediate effects while also enjoying a longer duration is the pro move. 

Incorporating "Daytrip" Blends into Your Routine:

Adding our Daytrip blends to your daily routine can be an impactful way to optimize your experiences. Thoughtful dosing is always an important consideration and first step. If you aren’t sure what your tolerance level is, and even for those that are, we recommend starting with a smaller dose and adding in additional products more slowly to reach your desired state.  We also recommend conscious consumption. Plant medicine and the benefits of cannabis and CBD are undeniable, but we’ll always advocate for balance! Cannabis is best consumed where we aren’t overly reliant on it to be happy and centered. Using cannabis and our goods as a tool in harmony with your own abilities to ground and be happy is key.
