Meet THCP: Study reveals the identification of this new cannabinoid

Cannabis is the botanical gift that keeps on giving. As research into cannabis ramps up, the chemical complexity and potential of the plant are becoming ever more apparent.  THCP: What happens when you enhance THC’s binding ability? In the newly discovered THCP molecule, the researchers found that a critical side chain in the molecule’s structure is elongated, with seven links. In comparison, regular THC has five links. To provide further context, naturally occurring cannabinoids with more than five links in this side chain have not yet been detected in cannabis.  The length of this side chain has been shown to...

What is HHC (hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol)?

As the race to discover and develop new, more potent cannabinoids. It seems like HHC (hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol) is the newest novel compound to be hitting center stage.  The available information on HHC (hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol) is extremely limited at this point.  Let’s start with whether it’s natural or synthetic – technically, it can be both. There is a biologically active naturally occurring (−)-hexahydrocannabinol, as well as its synthetic enantiomer (+)-hexahydrocannabinol. The synthetic HHC, which can be found in spice, has the chemical formula: 9-Nor-9β-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol, and the natural variety, found in trace amounts in cannabis pollen, goes by the formula: 6aR,9R,10aR-Hexahydrocannabinol. As the name suggests (Hexahydrocannabinol...

What is THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin)?

THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) is a novel cannabinoid with mild psychoactive effects similar to THC but without the anxious side-effects. THCV, also occasionally called the ‘sports car of cannabinoids’, is a relatively abundant yet little-known cannabinoid. It is a compound that potentially provides people with an array of benefits and unique effects. There are well over 100 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Most of the focus over the last 50 years has been on THC and CBD — but this doesn’t mean the other contenders don’t have value too.  Here, we’ll look at one of the more interesting novel cannabinoids in more...
