New discoveries are constantly popping up in the cannabis world, offering an abundance of active compounds like terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids that make for unique experiences when mixed and matched.

This rare and naturally occurring cannabinoid is thought to be up to 10 times stronger than regular THC, grabbing the attention of manufacturers around the world who want to tap into its potent effects.

Not much is known about Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabihexol (Δ9-THCh) yet, but research is underway and first reports suggest that it might help make you happier and elevate your mood.

How Is THCh Made?

THCh was first isolated from the cannabis plant in 2020 by the same researchers who discovered THC-P (tetrahydrocannabiphorol).

Found in the hexyl homolog of tetrahydrocannabinol, the Italian team uncovered the phytocannabinoid and got to work investigating further.

Decades before its isolation, the existence of the phytocannabinoid THCh had been known as an isomer in the synthetic cannabinoid parahexyl.

THCh Effects & Benefits

Although the jury is still out on the full effects and benefits that THCh can provide, the first reports show promise in mood elevation and pain relief for its non-psychoactive chemical cousin, CBDh.

The team that discovered the cannabinoid tested its pharmacological effects in mice, finding that it helped block the physiological detection of pain and proved effective in dealing with pain relief and pain management.

When it comes to the THCh, researchers were unable to extract enough to fully test how it interacts with the human body. That being said, we do know it’s potent and can bring forth an elevated psychoactive experience, especially when mixed with other cannabinoids like Delta 8.

We might need to wait for more information to be available to fully understand the potential of THCh, but for now, we’re able to experiment and find out ourselves.

Does Hemp Contain THCh?

When making products like the ones that Bay Smokes provide, which offer a mixture of THCh, THCjd, and Delta 8, the distillate is extracted 100% from hemp.

Because these cannabinoids are found naturally occurring in the cannabis plant, the simple answer is yes: hemp does contain THCh. 

How To Buy THCh

THCh is still a pretty rare cannabinoid, so it might be difficult to get your hands on some. Luckily, Bay Smokes offers 100% plant-based products: vape cartridges, disposable vapes, and tinctures that contain THCh, THCjd, and Delta 8.

The THCh is believed to be up to 10 times stronger than your regular run-of-the-mill THC, while THCjd is up to 19 times more potent. This means that the experience is sure to be unforgettable, not to mention the Delta 8 which in combination with the other cannabinoids, creates a reaction that is synergistic.

By combining these three, a unique effect is brought on that is different from any other cannabis experience. Since it’s pretty potent, we recommend practicing caution and taking it slow when first trying THCh.

The products that Bay Smokes have are comparable to an indica-dominant hybrid, meaning you’ll be able to relax and take it in before enjoying the unique effects that these rare cannabinoids offer.
