Dutch Passion's THC-Victory is a hybrid cannabis strain which has been bred to produce relatively high levels of THC-V, a.k.a. tetrahydrocannabivarin, a cannabinoid which is becoming increasingly researched and explored. THC-Victory produces roughly equal measures of THC and THC-V at 8 - 9% of each. Although trace quantities of THC-V can be found in many strains it is more often found at higher levels in sativa strains from equatorial and sub-equatorial Africa.
While THC-V has little effect in low concentrations, higher levels have a higher psychoactive effect similar to that of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). As a sativa strain THC-Victory grows quite lanky, producing good yields both indoors and outdoors. Indoors its flowering time is between 9 - 11 weeks, not particularly long for a sativa. Its terpene profile is on the fruity side with notes of citrus. It is a strain for any time of day.
THC-V is currently being researched for therapeutic benefits for osteoporosis due to its apparent stimulation of bone growth; for weight loss as it appears to reduce appetite; for post-traumatic stress disorder as it seems to reduce anxiety; for diabetes as it regulates blood sugar levels thereby reducing insulin resistance, and finally in Alzheimer's research as there is some evidence that tremors, motor control and brain lesions all appear to undergo a degree of improvement. We stress, however, that research is ongoing for all of these possibilities and that more evidence is required before any of these can be stated as being categorical proof.
