What is THC-P?
The cannabis world is buzzing about THC-P, the newest and potentially strongest cannabinoid to date.
THC-P or tetrahydrocannabiphorol, is a phytocannabinoid that naturally occurs in the hemp plant in small doses. Because of this, it is typically lab-made. THC-P was only first discovered in 2019 and it is currently only found in the FM2 strain of cannabis.
Because THC-P is so new, further research is required to assess the long-term benefits and side effects of using this substance. However, current anecdotal research suggests that this compound is safe for medicinal and recreational use.
How is THC-P Made?
THC-P is typically made in labs using hemp which contains a maximum of 0.3% of delta 9 THC.
The Benefits of THC-P
Just like delta 8 and delta 9, THC-P gives users the typical feelings associated with cannabis use such as euphoria and increased psychoactivity, although many users report that the effects of THC-P are more pronounced than those of typical THC. Additionally, there are a few key effects that set THC-P apart from the rest. Here are some of the common benefits of THC-P that users report:
- Reduced anxiety
- Appetite stimulant
- Stress relief and relaxation
- Minor pain relief
- Improved sleep
The Side Effects of THC-P
As with all cannabis products, side effects are possible while using THC-P. While THC-P has not been known to produce any extreme side effects, it is similar in nature to THC and therefore can result in similar side effects to those of delta 8 or delta 9. Many of these side effects are uncommon, and only last for the duration of the users high.
- Dry mouth
- Red eyes
- Fatigue or sleepiness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Memory loss
- Self consciousness
It’s important to exercise caution when using any cannabis product, but particularly THC-P. Some side effects result from users consuming too much THC-P too quickly, which can be easy to do because this phytocannabinoid is so strong. While there is no surefire way to avoid side effects while using THC-P, starting off slow when vaping, staying hydrated, and consuming cannabis in a space where you feel comfortable and safe can help to ensure that you have the best possible experience.
How is THC-P Different From Delta 8 and Delta 9?
Some studies report that THC-P is up to 30 times stronger than typical THC like delta 8, and much more effective at binding with CB1 receptors in the brain. Delta 8 is known for producing a calm, relaxed high in users, whereas THC-P can be much more stimulating and psychoactive.
Delta 9 and THC-P give users a somewhat similar high, but what sets THC-P apart from delta 9 is that it is federally legal in the United States. So why is THC-P legal and delta 9 isn’t? This is due to the 2018 Farm Bill, which is also known as the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. This bill changed the legal classification of hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity and made it so that any cannabis derivative containing less than 0.3% delta 9 THC would no longer be defined as marijuana in regards to the controlled substances act. Because THC-P and delta 8 contain less than 0.3% of delta 9, it is legal to produce, distribute, and sell products containing the two in the United States. It’s important to remember though that each state makes its own rules and regulations regarding hemp products, and multiple states, including Utah, Rhode Island, Montana, Mississippi, Iowa, Idaho, Delaware, Colorado, Arkansas, Arizona, and Alaska, have either restricted or banned products containing THC-P.
How to Buy THC-P
In states where it is legal to purchase cannabis products like THC-P, THC-P products can be purchased online and shipped through the United States Postal Service (USPS). Although there is not currently a federal minimum age requirement to purchase THC-P products, some states require consumers to be 21 years old or older to purchase cannabis. It’s always a good idea to check your specific state’s requirements before attempting to purchase hemp products online.
How to Consume THC-P
THC-P can be consumed in a variety of ways, although many users prefer to consume it in edible or vape form. Because THC-P is known to be so strong, vaping can be a great way to consume it incrementally. Although THC-P edibles are a great choice for those more experienced with the phytocannabinoid, with a vape you can increase the dosage bit by bit until you achieve your desired high. As with any cannabis product, it’s best to start small to avoid “greening out” or getting too high. It’s important to note that different means of consumption will kick in at different times. While vaping or smoking cannabis results in an almost instant high, edibles can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to kick in, making it easy to consume too much cannabis if you’re not careful.
