WHAT IS THC-P?
THC-P stands for tetrahydrocannabiphorol. It was discovered as recently as 2019 and offers as much as 30 times the potency of conventional forms. THC-P remains the subject of intensive research interest both at home and abroad.
IS THC-P NATURAL?
Yes! THC-P is one of the 140 phytocannabinoids found in cannabis.
However, natural levels of THC-P are well below 0.1 percent. Some plants, such as the Italian-bred FM2 strain, contain almost 0.1% THC-P.
THC-P VS. THC: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
THC and THC-P share nearly identical chemical structures with one crucial difference: the length of their alkyl side chain.
THC’s chain is a five-carbon atom chain, while THC-P’s has seven carbon atoms.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF THC-P?
Many THC-P users describe the effects as a more pronounced version of THC. It’s stronger (almost psychedelic), so you need a smaller dose to experience the same general effects as THC.
Current research about the effects of THC-P is scarce, but people who have tried THC-P report that its effects are virtually indistinguishable from THC’s effects.
DOES THCP GET YOU HIGH?
Yes. THC-P is highly psychoactive.
THC-P seems to have an almost identical effect profile to THC, according to many people who have reported trying THC-P
THC-P VS. DELTA 8 THC
THC-P is much, much stronger than delta 8 THC (roughly 60 times as strong).
The effects of these cannabinoids are very different as well. THC-P can be quite stimulating. This, combined with its exceptional potency, makes THCP very likely to result in anxious side effects, insomnia, and rapid heart rate.
Delta 8 is the total opposite — it’s has a milder and far more relaxing and mellow felling. Delta 8 THC is unlikely to make users feel anxious or negatively affect sleep.
