Emerging from the shadows of the well-acclaimed THC, THCP introduces itself as a unique compound, boasting an impressive structure that inherently exudes potency significantly higher than its counterparts. With science as our compass, this page is dedicated to illuminating the intriguing profile of this cannabinoid, exploring its characteristics, potential benefits, andcomparison to other popular cannabinoids.

What is THCP?

Tetrahydrocannabiphorol is a cannabinoid that was only recently identified within the cannabis sativa plant. The discovery of this compound marked a significant milestone in the field of cannabinoid research, unveiling a new constituent of the cannabis plant that could potentially offer unprecedented benefits.

Like its better-known counterparts, THC and CBD, it is a naturally occurring compound. It is derived from the cannabis sativa plant, existing alongside a myriad of other cannabinoids, each with their unique properties and potential therapeutic applications.

At a molecular level, THCP shares a similar structure with THC, which is the principal psychoactive component in cannabis. This similarity in structure implies that THCP might interact with the body's endocannabinoid system in ways akin to THC, albeit with differences in potency and effect.

What sets the cannabinoid apart from THC, and indeed other cannabinoids, is its extraordinary potency. According to scientific studies, THCP has been observed to be approximately 30 times more potent than THC. This significant level of potency suggests that even in small amounts, THCP could exert a powerful effect on the body's endocannabinoid receptors, potentially leading to stronger and more prolonged effects.

THCP vs Other Cannabinoids


Both have almost identical chemical structures exceptย for the length of their alkyl side chain. THCPโ€™s longer side chain makes it more biologically active than THC, resulting in 30 times greater bonding activity with cannabinoid type one (CB1) receptors.


HHC is lacking the formidable strength of THCP, however still retains substantial potency. Since THCP is considered stronger than THC, it is also stronger than HHC, making it a more potent alternative in the cannabinoid market.


The hydrogenated variant of THCP shares similarities with its original. This relationship is similar to how HHC represents the hydrogenated version of THC. Exhibiting psychoactive properties, HHCP stands out by providing more long-lasting effects.


Unlike THCP, H4CBD is mildly psychoactive cannabinoid derived from CBD not THC, making it an appealing option for individuals seeking more relaxed experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which method of consumption is better?

Edible: The effects of edibles take longer to manifest, usually between 30 minutes to 2 hours, but they tend to last longer, which can range from 4 to 12 hours, depending on the dosage and individual metabolism.

Smokable: The effects are felt almost immediately, usually within minutes, making it easier to titrate (adjust) the dose as needed. However, the effects tend to last shorter, about 2 to 4 hours.

Therefore, if you are looking for longer and more intense experience, edibles would be better. However, if you just want less potent effect, we would recommend smoking.

What is the perfect dosage for a beginner?

With edibles it can be more challenging to find the right dose, especially for beginners, due to the delayed onset of effects. Start with 1 gummy and wait for 1-2 hours. If there is no effect, proceed to increase the dosage by 1 gummy. Do not exceed the recommended dosage - 3 gummies.

With smoking products it is easier to manage dosage and effects in real-time. Start with 5 deep inhales and increase the dosage accordingly after 15 minutes.ย 

What kind of effect should I expect?

THCP is reported to have effects similar to THC but at a potentially higher potency. This could mean enhanced euphoria, relaxation, alterations in perception, and the possibility of stronger side effects such as anxiety or paranoia in sensitive individuals.

Can I incorporate THCP into my daily routine?

Incorporating any cannabinoid into your daily routine should be approached with careful consideration of its impacts on your mental and physical health, productivity, and social interactions.

Given THCP's potency, it's especially important to understand how it affects you personally. For some, low doses may enhance creativity, reduce anxiety, or help with sleep. However, the effects can vary widely, and it's important to ensure that daily use does not interfere with responsibilities or personal well-being.
