What is THC-P or THCP? As hemp-derived products such as delta 8, delta 10 and HHC are growing in popularity, many users are on the hunt for something stronger. Something more in line with the potent THC products only found in legal states. But thankfully, the hemp plant continues to surprise cannabis growers and product manufacturers with its versatility and variety of compounds.
One of these newly discovered compounds is THC-P (Tetrahydrocannabiphorol). THCP is a very potent cannabinoid that attaches to both CB1 receptors (present in the brain and spinal cord) and CB2 receptors (present throughout the body). While research into this compound is still in early stages, THC-P was found to be present in hemp in trace amounts. So, just like delta 8, producers were able to isolate the compound.
What are the Effects of THC-P?
According to early research into THCP, the potent compound is said to have a receptor binding affinity that is 30 times higher than regular d9 THC. Basically, THC-P in theory is a lot stronger than THC and will provide most users with a very potent buzz.
So far, our customers have reported THCP to feel just like the “real stuff”. Because of its potency, most users find it best for nighttime relaxation and sleep, but there are plenty of sativa-based THCP products for more of a strong day-time buzz. Because of THC-P’s high potency, most products that contain it are usually mixed with delta 8 or other lighter cannabinoids.
What’s the Best Way to Take THCP?
Just like with any cannabinoid, the best way to take it is based on your personal preference. To get the most potent, well-rounded effects, edibles are typically recommended. But, if you want to start low and slow with THC-P, vaping can be a more controlled option.
Where can you find THC-P in Raleigh? Luckily, we have a growing number of products with THCP. The Platinum delta 8 and THCP disposable vapes have become a fan favorite. And, our new line of blended gummies are a great way to try THCP in edible form.
Is THC-P Safe?
Cannabis as a whole is widely accepted as safe, non-addictive and with no potential for an overdose. However, there is little research available for compounds such as THC-P. Since THC-P is a hemp-derived cannabinoid, it is 100 percent legal in North Carolina.
Because of THC-P’s potency, too much can potentially cause increased anxiety and paranoia in some users. Our advice is to start low and slow with THC-P. If you aren’t familiar with delta 8 or HHC, we suggest starting with those before moving up to THCP.
