One of the most recently found new cannabinoids, THCP was discovered very recently, just 3 years ago by a team of scientists.
THCP, is short for tetrahydrocannabiphorol. You can think of it as THC Phorol “For-All”.
THCP and delta 9 THC have essentially the same effects. The only difference is the potency levels. The normal dose of delta 9 THC is around 10 mg. The equivalent dose of THCP is closer to 0.3 mg (300 micrograms).
The strongest member of the THC class — THCP — a cannabinoid with more than 30 times the potency of conventional delta 9 THC from marijuana. This cannabinoid appears to bind to the CB1 receptors 33 times more often than delta 9 THC. Activation of the CB1 endocannabinoid receptors is what gives THC and THCP their psychoactive effects. THCP is a naturally occurring cannabinoid isomer of Delta-9 THC reported to produce similar, yet possibly more intense and powerful sensations than it’s more familiar counterpart.
THC and THCP 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 THCP’s has seven carbon atoms.
Besides being an interesting piece of trivia, this structural difference makes THCP significantly more biologically active. THCP’s longer side-chain gives it 30 times higher bonding activity at cannabinoid type one (CB1) receptors, making it potentially 30 times more potent than THC.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF THCP?
Many THCP 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 THCP is scarce, but people who have tried THCP report that its effects are virtually indistinguishable from THC’s effects.
Even though THCP and THC may share many benefits, there is one key difference:
THCP is 30 times more biologically active than THC and, therefore, also has proportionally stronger effects. This means the dose of THCP and THC are going to be very different.
As such, it is important to tread lightly, especially if you’ve ever experienced adverse side effects from THC use, like anxiety, memory loss, or paranoia.Here you’ll find an assortment of the most popular THCP products from the industry’s most celebrated brands, including TRĒ House, Koi, Moon Exotics Rocket Fuel, Delta-8, and others.
