Yes, we know that all this combination of letters sounds like we’re making it up, but we’re not. These cannabinoids are taking the world by storm, and the cannabis market is loving them.
Here we tell you a little about them, so you can get to know these special cannabinoids, their main characteristics, effects, and differences.

THC is probably one of the best-known compounds in the world of weed. It owes its fame to being the main intoxicant of the cannabis plant, in other words, it is the one to whom we owe -and thank- for the psychoactive high.
THC or THC Delta 9 is a naturally occurring chemical that belongs to a group of compounds called cannabinoids, of which the cannabis plant can produce more than 113 (that we know so far).
As you know, THC is the main component responsible for most of the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Known for a strong physical and mental combination, with a range of effects in between, remember that in the world of weed it all depends very much on the individual.
Unfortunately, THC or Delta 9 THC is banned in many states, so it is important to check local regulations before buying and consuming it.
If you want to try D9 but feel like it’s too strong, we know a way to enjoy it without worries.

THC-P is a natural cannabinoid and THC analog present in cannabis strains and is a complete accident for which we are grateful to a team of Italian researchers.
It is believed to be 33x more active than THC, causing an intense and intoxicating euphoric high, hence its popularity.
THC-P’s legality is stuck in a gray area. It is made from hemp, so technically it would be protected under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, many believe it is an illegal substance and falls under the Federal Analogue Act (FAA).
Although THC-P was discovered by accident, it is one of the most potent cannabinoids currently on the market, among its effects are euphoria, mental and physical high, and relief from severe pain.
THC-P can be strong, so we recommend trying it out through vaping. This THC-P Vape Cartridge by Binoid is perfect for that. They currently carry six different flavors ranging from full-on indicas to energetic sativas.
Of course, our favorite from this is the Aurora Indica strain, with delicious spicy and herbal notes. It’s perfect for people that need an extra boost towards sleeping or just want to unwind and leave the stress behind, specifically with the THC-P extra.
These carts come in 1ml of high-quality delta 8, enriched with premium THC-P distillate. Luckily they fit any 510 thread, so don’t worry about needing something else. So for an intense experience, you can always check their flavor options on their website, over here.

THC-H is another cannabinoid that we owe to the same team of researchers that discovered THC-P, let’s be honest, the cannabis world owes a great deal to these researchers.
These two new cannabinoids, THC-H and THC-P, are believed to be the most potent forms of THC found in the hemp plant – so far – because of the strong psychoactive effects they can generate.
THC-H is a minor cannabinoid that can also be found in the hemp plant in small concentrations, making it a compound that occurs naturally in nature or can be produced synthetically.
THC-H is a very potent compound that should be consumed with care, as its effects can be overwhelming if you overdose or your tolerance is low.
THC-V is similar to THC in its molecular structure but provides a variety of different effects compared to its relative. It has become popular because it is known as the diet weed, due to its powerful appetite suppressing effect, contrary to the well-known munchies that the weed usually gives.
THC-V is a unique cannabinoid that has potential therapeutic benefits both for appetite control and for providing a feeling of concentrated and energetic euphoria.
Being derived from hemp it would technically be a legal substance under the 2018 Bill Farm.
THC is perhaps the best known of all these cannabinoids, in a manner of speaking, the others are similar forms of this compound, all with euphoric effects and leaning towards the psychoactive side and mental and body high, to a greater or lesser extent depending on the specific compound.
As easily as keys fit into a lock, THC binds to cannabinoid receptors and triggers a series of chemical reactions. This causes changes in the brain and body.
When THC is activated in the brain, you will experience altered behavior and cognitive ability. Primarily, THC will make you feel differently than you normally do, it happens the same way with THC-P, THC-H, and THC-V.
THC-P is believed to be about 30 times more potent than THC, in case it’s not obvious, this is very potent!
THC-H is also known for its high potency which could be up to 19 times more than THC.
Perhaps the most different of these cannabinoids is THC-V, which offers a more motivated, alert, and energizing feeling of euphoria. For this reason, it is often recommended for daytime or any time when functionality is important.
These are some of the effects that consumers report as cross-cutting to these cannabinoids, but remember that in the world of weed everyone will react differently and your experience may not be the same as anyone else’s.
Now let’s look a bit in detail at each of the cannabinoids and their most relevant reported effects.
Let’s start with the most popular of them all, THC, known to increase euphoria and happiness, as well as relieve anxiety and chronic pain.
Next on the list is THC-H, and while the jury is still out on all the effects and benefits THC-H can provide, early reports seem to indicate that it helps quite a bit with mood elevation and pain relief. It is so potent that it can evoke quite an intensely psychoactive experience.
Likewise, THC-P seems to generate strong highs accompanied by feelings of joy, euphoria, relaxation, and pain relief, it is basically highly potentized THC.
THC-V, on the other hand, is known to be an effective appetite suppressant. It also appears to be able to help with diabetes, panic attacks, anxiety, Alzheimer’s, and even bone growth.
In general, extraction methods will depend on the cannabinoid and the individual company. However, in general, alcohol, butane, CO2, water, and ethanol are common methods of cannabis extraction.
All of these solvents allow the cannabinoids to be separated from the cannabis plant. Each extraction method has its own benefit, but the goal of each is to provide a highly potent end product.
To verify that the products you intend to consume are of real quality, we recommend that you look for certificates of analysis from third-party laboratories.
These certificates guarantee that the ingredients used and the final product are free of contaminants and pesticides, and that you can verify if they contain the cannabinoid you expect and in what quantity. In addition to knowing what other compounds are included in the product.
This question is up to each individual. Everything about cannabis is strictly personal, and so is your choice of which cannabinoid best suits your taste and tolerance.
Rather than telling you which cannabinoid is yes and which cannabinoid is no, we can recommend that you opt for products from reliable companies, this is critical and will make or break your experience with these exotic cannabinoids.
THC-P, THC-V, THC-H, and THC all provide a diverse type of high that each person experiences differently.
Choosing the right one for you depends largely on your tastes and overall tolerance level.
