In just a few short years, Americans have been debating the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana. Most people correctly assumed that the federal government lacked the courage to do so. Today, compounds like THCP, one of the strongest forms of THC, are making their way into our solar system. How powerful is THCP exactly? Find out by reading on.
What is THCP?
When it comes to the question “What is THCP,” the only appropriate answer is “the strongest, most powerful cannabinoid on Earth.” Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) is an analog of THC that researchers believe is 33 times stronger than cannabis. To put this into perspective, Delta 9 is roughly twice as potent as Delta 8, and HHC is three to four times more potent than Delta 8. THCP surpasses them all, blowing them out of the park.
If you’re not familiar with THCP, it’s a highly significant compound. But let’s put that aside for now. THCP has the ability to travel to outer space using the power of the sun. Its power is comparable to that of other cannabinoids.
How Was THCP Discovered?
In 2019, a group of Italian scientists stumbled upon THCP purely by accident! While closely analyzing cannabis samples, the team made an astonishing discovery. They promptly published their results. The researchers noted that THCP functions similarly to THC in the endocannabinoid system, binding to CB1 receptors 33 times more effectively than THC.
This was an incredible find! Just imagine being part of the team that discovered this super-cannabis.
Scientifically speaking, THCP has a larger alkyl chain compared to THC. On the other hand, Delta-9 THC only contains five carbon atoms. Why is this significant? It enables THCP to integrate better with the ECS (endocannabinoid system). This means that less cannabinoid is needed to produce the same effects as THC.
Can THCP Make You High?
Yes, THCP can indeed get you high. Researchers still don’t fully understand the exact mechanism of THCP since it is relatively new (having been discovered only a few years ago). We know that THCP can get you high, but we don’t even know how it achieves this. When THCP does get you high, it takes you to a very intense level. This cannabinoid has a potency of over 30 times greater than Delta 9 THC.
