Why THCh and THCjd are the Strongest Cannabinoids
The title of the strongest cannabinoid used to belong to THCP, but THCh and THCjd are now competing for that position. These newly discovered cannabinoids are making heads turn in the world of Hemp. Discover why THCh and THCjd are the new strongest cannabinoids.
One of your first thoughts might be, how is THCh any different from regular THC? The difference with THCh when compared to Delta 8 is its potency. As stated earlier, the potency of THC is noticeable on a molecular level. This is because Tetrahydrocannabihexol (THCh) has a 6-carbon sidechain while regular THC has only a 5-carbon sidechain.
The longer the sidechain is on a cannabinoid, the longer, more drawn out psychoactive effects you’re likely to experience. The hexol in Tetrahydrocannabihexol refers to the 6-carbon sidechain in the THC. This is significant because Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC only have a 5-carbon sidechain.
Another potent cannabinoid with an even longer carbon sidechain is Tetrahydrocannabioctyl (THCjd). This cannabinoid has a 8-carbon sidechain which makes it the most potent cannabinoid to date. The only other cannabinoid that was considered to be the most potent was Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP). However, THCP only has a 7-carbon sidechain, so the extra carbon sidechain in THCjd makes it the most potent cannabinoid.
The result in a longer carbon sidechain means that THCjd is 19 times more stronger than THC. Keep in mind, what 19 times stronger means is that THCjd has a 19% more chance of sticking to your receptors. These receptors in your body are what’s responsible for that psychoactive feeling that you get.
THCjd will give everything THC can, but stronger. Does this mean better? That depends on who you ask.
It shares the psychoactive effects, so you can expect the usual of the high: lightheadedness, a sense of calm that washes over your body and mind, but it can also make your reflexes slower.
The main goal of THCjd and its combination with Delta 8 is to give you a full relaxation experience.
