Cannabis genetics company Phylos, along with People Science, a direct-to-consumer scientific research and technology company, has conducted an IRB-approved, double-blind clinical research study on the effects of rare cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). Results of the study found that Natural Natural THCV by Phylos significantly increased energy, activity, motivation, and well-being compared to placebo, without the fatigue and munchies associated with THC consumption.

Research participants ingested unmedicated placebo gummies, THC-only gummies, and gummies infused with extract from Get Sh!t Done (GSD), a THCV-dominant plant bred by Phylos. The GSD gummies included distillate from the GSD plant with a roughly 2:1 ratio of THCV:THC. Detailed methodology can be found here.

The study's core findings include:

  • 20% more participants felt energized after consuming the GSD gummy compared to placebo.
  • 40% more participants reported enjoying their daily activities after consuming the GSD gummy compared to placebo.
  • Participants who consumed the THC-only gummy reported a 50% increase in hunger when taking full doses. Participants who consumed the GSD gummy did not report a statistically significant increase in hunger compared to placebo.
  • Participants who consumed the THC-only gummy reported feeling fatigue three times more than the GSD group. Participants who consumed the GSD gummy reported significantly less fatigue than placebo.
  • Both GSD and THC-only gummies increased activity, exercise performance, motivation, and well-being compared to placebo.
