Cannabigerovarin (CBGV), the propyl homolog of cannabigerol (CBG), is a cannabinoid present in Cannabis.[1][2][3][4] There is no observation related to the psychoactive or psychotropic effects of CBGV when consumed or inhaled.[5][1] The possible benefits of cannabigerovarin in human bodies are painkilling and anti-inflammatory properties to treat conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis, the treatment and improvement of the dry-skin syndrome, cancer treatment by reducing the growth of cancer cells in patients who have leukemia.[6][5][7][8][9] According to the pain-relieving effects of this natural cannabinoid, it can be helpful to treat patients who were undergoing drug exposure like chemotherapy or radiation therapy.[10][9] In addition, cannabigerol metabolism increases and has a better absorption from the body when paired with cannabigerovarin.[11]
