What is THCP and its benefits?

THCP stand for tetrahydrocannabiphorol and is an organic cannabinoid that was first isolated in 2019. It is similar to delta 9 and is naturally found in the cannabis plant but in low concentrations. It does bind to ones CB1 receptors 33 times more than other traditional THC, giving you a psychoactive effect. THCP has been found to be thirty three times as potent as THC. It does exist in the marijuana and hemp plants alike.

For the first time in 2019 it was isolated in trace amounts of sativa. Even though it is similar to delta 9, the chain side extended out to heptyl. Meaning it has a longer chain by holding seven carbon atoms instead of five carbon atoms. Products made with THCP are made using synthetic compounds. Even though the cannabis plant only contains less than 0.1% of THCP, that does not mean it is any less potent. Although THCP will give you the same benefits as THC, you wont have to take as much. THCP will give you an upper feeling, meaning it will get you high, but all the effects of it are unknown.

It has been found that THCP will help with pain relief, ease nausea, seizures, improve sleep, help regulate your appetite, mood, and other disorders. There has been some reports from users that said THCP help them with stress relief, relaxation, appetite, and a heavy mental/physical buzz. Patients who require a high level of THC to help them, may switch over to THCP due to it not requiring much consumption to get the relief you are looking for. When using a product with THCP, the dosage will be different than with regular THC since THCP is so strong. Consumers are not just using THCP for recreational use but to help them medically due to the medication they are taking not helping them.

If you are new to products with THC, do your research. Products can be bought in forms of tinctures, gummies, dab, flower, disposables, lotions, and creams. It it your choice as to what you try. It is best start off with a small dose and work your way up until you get the relief you are looking for. It is not recommended for a new user to start their journey with THCP.
