THC-P, which is the abbreviation of tetrahydrocannabiforol. It is a naturally occurring cannabinoid analogous to THC present in cannabis strains.

It is believed to be up to 33 times more active at CB1 receptors than THC, causing an intense and intoxicating euphoric high. 

THC-P is a cannabinoid known for its potentially potent psychoactive properties. THC-P’s discovery is big news; its possible greater effect than THC makes it a hit. Users can feel an extraordinary buzz and unique experience.

In the coming months and years, as the cannabis industry as a whole continues to expand, THC-P will become more readily available on the market.

Still, as always, it’s essential to know precisely what you’re buying and trust who you’re buying from.

Bay Smokes’ products are a particular combination of Delta 8 and THC-P, which provides a unique effect that completely separates it from other cannabinoids and products. It generates a complete experience. 

Its cartridges are produced from Delta-8 THC and THC-P derived from the highest quality hemp. They also feature pure cannabis terpenes that provide superior smell and taste.

The tincture is made with the highest quality THC-P infused in premium MCT oil for fast and effective absorption. It is also infused with peppermint flavor, making every drop a refreshing experience.  

Bay Smokes THC-P blends are extracted from hemp and comply with the 2018 Farm Bill by containing < 0.3% THC Delta 9.

Binoid has a wide variety of THC-P products; its portfolio includes vape cartridges, disposables, tinctures, and more.

THC-P is a new legal category derived from hemp, made in the USA, 100% natural. It is much stronger than other THC cannabinoids and should not be confused with THC Delta 9.

Because THC-P is so potent, Binoid’s approach is to blend THC-P distillate with Delta 8 distillate. It’s a sensible and ideal blend, as you still get the heady buzz associated with THC-P but with a much more manageable high.

The cannabinoid is derived from hemp and includes unique terpenes instead of traditional diluting agents.

Also, Binoid will tell you exactly where they can ship to, sparing you the hassle of having to research state regulations, which is always dull.

What Is THC-P

THC-P is a psychoactive derivative of hemp that joins those already booming in the market. THC-P has distinguishing properties that make it a unique compound.

It is said to have been discovered by accident by a team of Italian researchers. During a mass-spectrometry and liquid chromatography study of natural cannabis, the group of scientists encountered a cannabinoid that had never been seen before and was made public to the world in 2019.

THC-P is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally in cannabis, which means it has always been there, and we just didn’t know about it. It is not a synthesized cannabinoid like THC-O, which means it is entirely organic.

The molecular structures of THC and THC-P are almost identical. Their difference lies in the “alkyl side chain.”

This alkyl side chain is a chain of carbon and hydrogen atoms attached to a molecule. In THC, the alkyl chain consists of five carbon atoms. In THC-P, it consists of seven.

This difference in the alkyl chain’s length changes the effects of the substances, indicating that having more carbon atoms in its side chain makes THC-P much more potent than THC.

THC-P Benefits

Tetrahydrocannabiforol is a cannabinoid still being studied, and much remains to be learned and discovered. The same team that discovered THC-P did some tests to find out what it is capable of, besides being very potent in producing a psychoactive response. 

It appears that THC-P products can produce similar effects to delta 9 THC, only perhaps stronger. THC-P has a unique and beneficial impact on pain levels, nervous system function, mood, and appetite.

Because it is such a potent compound, tolerance to its effects should be built up, starting with small doses and gradually increasing until the desired result is obtained, without feeling “too stoned.”

THC-P Effects

The effects provided by THC-P will ultimately depend on the dose and the strain you choose to go with, But generally, you may find sedating, energizing, or soothing effects to come from THC-P.

As a new cannabinoid, the secondary effects of tetrahydrocannabiforol are still under study, and we are just beginning to learn about them. At the moment, THC-P has not been described as having extreme side effects, and most do not usually have adverse effects.

However, since THC-P is similar to THC, we can assume that when side effects do occur, they are fairly correlated to include the following:

  • Paranoia
  • Anxiousness
  • Self-consciousness
  • Sleepiness
  • Fatigue
  • Alertness
  • Dry mouth
  • Red eyes
  • Memory loss (temporary)
  • Sickness
  • Vomiting

The resulting “high” from a THC-P-rich cannabis strain or product could produce some pretty powerful effects. Paired with other cannabinoids and terpenes, the effects might be more sedating, energizing, or soothing.

Will THC-P Get Me High?

Effectively and emphatically, YES.

This compound is more potent than THC, which means it can deliver very strong and powerful highs. The effects can be fast and robust. It can be a very beneficial compound, but we also suggest starting small and building up over time.

THC-P is the most potent form of THC known so far, even more than semi-synthetic cannabinoids like THC-O and HHC.

Is THC-P Legal?

Strictly speaking, there is no legislation expressly singling out THC-P as illegal. In fact, THC-P products are currently produced from hemp, and federal law states that all hemp derivatives, except Delta 9 THC, are legal if their delta-9-THC content does not exceed 0.3%.

However, it is likely to be technically illegal in the United States due to the Federal Analogs Act (FAA). The FAA automatically makes analogs of banned substances illegal. 

Given that THC-P exists naturally in hemp that carries up to 0.3% THC, many also argue that it is protected under the Agriculture Improvement Act (Farm Bill 2018).
