What Is 11 Hydroxy THC?

Everything you need to know about 11 Hydroxy THC.

We’d like to add another contender to your growing list of cannabinoids you may want to try. Hopefully, this guide will prompt you to explore a new cannabinoid that could change the way you interact with the world.

So what’s all the hype about 11-Hydroxy-THC? Well, it’s not so much of a cannabinoid but a potent metabolite of THC that is produced in the body after we consume cannabis.  

This metabolite is responsible for producing the psychoactive effects of cannabis. 11-Hydroxy-THC is more potent than THC and has a longer duration of action. It is also more lipophilic than THC, meaning it is more readily absorbed into the body.

See everything there is to know about 11-Hydroxy-THC below.

For The Nerds: 11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-THC) is a potent active metabolite of Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC), which is produced in the body after THC administration. 

It is also produced endogenously via the metabolism of anandamide. 11-OH-THC is a potent agonist of the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 with EC50 values of 0.37 nM and 0.43 nM, respectively. The pharmacological effects of 11-OH-THC are similar to THC’s but with a shorter duration of action due to its rapid metabolism.

For The Chillers: 11 Hydroxy THC keeps the buzz short. A shorter buzz makes it possible to sneak in a bedtime sesh even if you have to wake up early, take care of the kids, or have a board meeting after lunch. 

What Are The Differences Between THC & 11 Hydroxy?

11-Hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-THC) is a potent active metabolite of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC) that is produced in the body after cannabis is consumed.

It is also produced when the liver metabolizes THC. 11-OH-THC is more psychoactive than THC and is responsible for the majority of the psychoactive effects of cannabis. It is also more potent than THC, meaning that it can have stronger effects at lower doses.

The main takeaway is that 11-Hydroxy is not a cannabinoid but a compound produced by THC (a cannabinoid) when our body ingests it.

How Much Should I Take?

At first, it’s ideal to take a smaller dose and ease your way in. Because these cannabinoids are likely new to your body, it’s best to test the waters with smaller doses to achieve your perfect high. 

New cannabinoids can be daunting to many herbivores, but being responsible and navigating your preferred buzz can dramatically reduce your risk of an unwanted experience.
