So lets take a step back and look at who this is.
Steep Hill Labs has started a company that licensed Doug's Varin.
And of course they are spinning this nice little tale about the novel qualities of their patent strain.
Just because a business operates a lab does not mean that they are purely scientific, impartial, or benevolent.
Those stating that THCV is aboslutely non-psychoactive are doing so because their business imterest are in posing this cannabinoid as a pharmaceutical and so it cannot be an entheogen nor an inebriant
The fact is, THCV makes cannabis highly psychoactive.
For unbiased science, look to the studies earlier than the 80's.
