Cheeba Chews has launched THCV-Charged Energy Chews, the latest addition to the company’s Wellness Line.
With a 2:1 ratio (5 mg THC to 2.5 mg THCV) in each piece, consumers can enjoy a consistent source of plant-based energy unique to the Colorado market. The blend of THC and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is enhanced with 5 mg caffeine (about one decaf cup) to provide a boost of energy.
Cheeba Chews’ Wellness Line integrates unique cannabinoid combinations into its classic taffies. The “Morning, Noon and Night” suite includes the 1:1:1 Be Happy Trifecta Caramel Taffy (5 mg each of CBG / CBD / THC) and the 2:1 Sleepy Chew Chocolate Taffy (5 mg THC / 2.5 mg CBN).
While THC and CBD are in the limelight, other cannabinoids such as THCV, CBG and CBN are gaining attention for how they interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which affects sleep, mood, appetite and other functions. Research links THCV — found in many sativa-dominant strains — with increased energy and reduced food cravings, among other potential benefits.
“Our customers will love the subtle psychoactive experience they’ll get from the low amount of the Delta-9 THC and the clear, focused, energy driven effects of THCV,” said Eric Leslie, chief marketing officer and co-owner.
The chocolate chews come in packs of 20 and are available across Colorado, with Oklahoma set to follow in early 2022.
