Before you add one to your cart, let’s explore its history and what its legality is across the United States.

What Is THC-P?

First off, what in the world is THC-P? Tetrahydrocannabiphorol was discovered only two years ago by a team of Italian researchers in Florence, and it has made its rounds in the cannabis community for being a hellraiser. The story of its discovery is pretty entertaining, as it was a total mistake.

They came across the compound by pure chance using advanced technology like mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography on cannabis samples. Almost like it was just waiting to be discovered. Its similarity to synthetic cannabinoids surprised researchers, especially since it is naturally occurring (good news for plant-lovers).

It causes a uniquely strong psychoactive effect, which eager cannabis enthusiasts have thoroughly been enjoying. The hemp-derived THC-P has shown to be more than thirty times more effective at binding with cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system, meaning the trip is one worth taking and might be a wild ride.

Chances are you’ve already tried it; you just weren’t aware of it. As a naturally occurring cannabinoid, it’s possible that the intense trip you’ll never forget might just have had something to do with THC-P.

Studies are still being developed, but it’s not outside the realm of possibilities that you have had an experience with the compound before.

Trying it again might just wake up those memories.

The differences between THC-P and THC can be boiled down to their chemical structure. Two extra carbons are in the newly discovered compound, making it a heck of a lot stronger than your regular, run-of-the-mill THC. It is said to be much more potent, which undoubtedly perks up the ears of all blazers.

THC-P is the strongest naturally occurring cannabinoid discovered (so far). It can be compared to other synthetics, like THC-O, but is said to be 1.5 times stronger. It’s also a lot more potent than Delta 8 and Delta 10 THC, making for a high that packs a punch.

THC-P Effects

Now that we’ve gotten the scientific hullabaloo out of the way, it’s time to answer the question on everyone’s mind: how does THC-P feel?

Like most cannabis, it pretty much depends on the person, but the experiences people have had lead to a heightened state of stimulation and alteration in visual and auditory perception. It’s definitely not hallucinogenic, but the experience can be comparable to psychedelic.

Sounds like a good trip for a music festival, right?

It also depends on what strain you have: a sativa might make you want to run and dance around the room, an indica will have you lying on the couch rewatching your favorite TV show for hours on end, and a hybrid could get you off your feet and ready to go on a long walk outside.

Binoid has all three, so you can choose your adventure.

Your point of perception might be changed, and you’ll find yourself very focused on a particular instrument in your favorite song, tripping about the green in the trees and how the grass feels between your toes, and probably getting down with a severe case of the munchies. The experiences derived from THC-P are as diverse as its users, so be prepared for a trip tailored just for you. 

THC-P is just like your regular, trusted THC but amplified. Although more studies need to be conducted, pain relief is widely reported, along with a penchant for giving you better sleep, less anxiety, and – more than anything else – a lot of added fun.

Depending on the mixture of other cannabinoids and terpenes, THC-P might be sleep-inducing, energizing, euphoric or relaxing. Whatever the case, there’s something for everyone in this cannabinoid.

But hold up – take precautions when trying it for the first time. The experience is heightened for the better, but that also means the side effects can be just as intense.

If you’re easily paranoid, don’t forget to breathe and place yourself in a safe space. Have some water at hand for cottonmouth, and just allow yourself to enjoy the experience. It might be a trip like no other, but for seasoned users, it just might be what they’re looking for.

No doubt, you’re probably already wondering: “cool, so how do I get my hands on this stuff?” Luckily for you, it is fully federally and stately legal in most of the United States.

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, which classifies the naturally-occurring cannabinoid as hemp, it’s able to be manufactured, distributed, and sold to legal consumers.

States that have fully legalized medicinal and recreational use of cannabis can enjoy THC-P without any worries: California, New York, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, and all the other fun places that have decriminalized marijuana to the full extent. Michigan, Illinois, Arizona, and Washington, too.

Some states have a mixed status, so it holds to be seen whether this potent cannabinoid will be available.

On the other hand, although THC-P is federally legal, that doesn’t mean it’s available everywhere. States where marijuana consumption has not been decriminalized obviously make this list, like Kansas, Texas, Kentucky, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Wyoming, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Georgia.

Marijuana is slowly but surely becoming legalized in more states, so if you can’t get your hands on it yet, chances are you will be able to in the future.

For now, if you live in a state where it’s decriminalized, order your THC-P cartridge from Binoid and enjoy the ride. If you don’t, plan a trip to wherever you can secure yourself some good-old THC-P.
