Want to try the highly potent THC-P? These are the products to do so. Created with Binoid.
Whenever a new cannabis compound is discovered, it causes waves in the industry. Such is the case with THC-P, a natural cannabinoid, and analog of THC that was recently discovered totally accidentally by a group of Italian scientists.
So what exactly is it? Well, it’s almost identical to THC on a molecular level: the only difference is that THC has five carbon atoms and THC-P has seven. This might not seem like a lot, but when it comes to chemical structure, it makes the latter much more potent than run-of-the-mill THC.
Basically, the newly discovered compound binds more effectively to your CB1 receptor, making for an intense high.
The discovery of traces of tetrahydrocannabiphorol was exciting – especially since it’s thought to be around 33 times stronger than your regular old THC, making for an exceptional high that brings euphoria to the forefront of the weed experience.
Clearly, it was only a matter of time before the world began to take note and make THC-P part of the universal ganja experience.
One of the first brands to hit the market with quality THC-P products is Binoid. With four vape carts in their lineup, they’ve got one for every user. Let’s see what they’re all about.

As a continuing object of study, we’ve only just scratched the surface of the benefits THC-P has to offer. However, the Italian scientists who are to thank for the discovery of the compound found that physiological effects like hypomobility and pain-relief are a direct result of the powerful cannabinoid.
Think normal THC effects, but add a couple of hundred horsepower.
There’s no question that THC-P can be therapeutic. It might have you dozing off instead of fighting insomnia, energizing you for a day of work, or soothing an anxiety-ridden day.
This all depends on the terpenes and cannabinoids mixed with the compound, so you can essentially personalize the way you want to feel and the benefits you want to receive.

It’s hard to say what the effects of THC-P are, as it all depends on the strain and dose you decide to go with. One thing is for sure: it will have you traveling the stratosphere.
If you go for an indica, it’ll give a sedating effect that gets rid of aches and pains. If you smoke a sativa, you’ll probably feel a boost of energy that’ll have you focus on the job at hand. A hybrid will be soothing to the body and mind, relieving anxiety and shooing away pesky thoughts.
Bear in mind that THC-P is much more intense than regular THC, which means that uncomfortable effects are also possible if you don’t watch your dosage. If you’re prone to anxiety, paranoia, dry mouth, or fatigue, you’ll want to take it easy.
Finding the right strain and dose is essential to assure that the trip is as fun as it can be.
The jury’s still out on the long-term effects of consuming THC-P, but there doesn’t seem anything more troubling than a long-lasting and potent high. However, it’s always a good idea to take it hit by a hit and find the right dosage for you. If you have any medical condition or are taking medication, you’ll benefit from asking your doctor if THC-P is right for you.
The legality of THC-P exists in a bit of a grey area. It’s not listed under the federal Controlled Substances Act, but as an analog of THC, it should be prohibited under the Federal Analogue Act. Here’s the good news: since it’s naturally occurring in hemp carrying up to 0.3% THC, it’s protected under the 2018 Farm Bill that legalizes hemp and hemp derivatives federally (except for THC).
THC-P products made from 100% hemp extract are allowed to be manufactured, distributed, and sold to consumers in the United States, as long as it contains less than 0.3% of Delta 9-THC. The country has come a long way – 38 out of 50 states have legalized weed to an extent, either for medicinal or recreational reasons.
Unfortunately, if you live in any of these states you might miss out on trying THC-P: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Utah, and a couple of others. Not all hope is lost, as weed slowly becomes legal around the country (and world!).
