While we’ve always thought the cannabis’s psychotropic effects were primarily due to THC, they may be, in fact, partly attributable to one promising, newly discovered cannabinoid. Thanks to a group of Italian researchers, supported by the UNIHEMP project, we now know that the high-inducing THC isn’t the most potent psychoactive cannabis compound. Join us to meet Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (delta-9-tetrahydrocannbiphorol). On the cusp of 2020 in Italy, the word THCp was on the lips of Giuseppe Cannazza and his group of Italian scientists. In an attempt to define the cannabinoid profile of an “autarchic” medical cannabis strain, two new cannabinoids popped up on the scene when using various scientific characterization techniques. Dr. Cannaza isolated these unique cannabinoids from the others and realized that they had a look-alike appearance with the already known THC and CBD. For this reason, they named them THCP (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabiphorol) and CBDP (cannabidiphorol), respectively. Thanks for stopping by! Why not give something from our garden a try?
