WHAT IS THC-H AND HOW IS IT MADE?
Tetrahydrocannabihexol and THC-His a complete newcomer to the hemp market, and as is often the case, it means that there’s not a lot that we know about it just yet, other than the fact that it’s a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant which offers intoxicating effects to the user.
THC-H has the second longest chemical chain after THC-P, therefore making it the second strongest cannabinoid after THC-P. While THCP is said to be 33x stronger than Delta 9 THC, THC-H is around 10-15x stronger than regular THC. Because it’s a natural cannabinoid, it behaves like all cannabinoids do, working with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body to bind to individual cannabinoid receptors, thus yielding a unique array of effects.
We don’t presently know when tetrahydrocannabihexol was discovered, or the amount of the cannabinoid in hemp except for the fact that it’s trace, like many other cannabinoids we’ve been seeing emerge lately like Delta 10 THC and THC-P products. Naturally, researchers will uncover more about it in the near future, as more advanced extraction methods make it easier to isolate and analyze.
IS THC-H LEGAL? STATE BY STATE LIST
Naturally, you’re likely wondering whether or not tetrahydrocannabihexol is legal. And, as of now, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be, at least on a federal level, as we all know that state laws can change rapidly and sometimes without a seemingly good reason. THC-H is not a specific type of cannabinoid, but rather the result of a chemical process applied to existing cannabinoids that are already protected under federal law.
Also, THC-H can be applied to non-psychoactive cannabinoids as much as intoxicating ones, so THC-H is not inherently associated with causing a high, which is what makes many cannabinoids legally controversial. At this point, THC-H and THC-P are considered legal and may possibly be shipped to most states.
WHAT ARE THE NON-PSYCHOACTIVE PROPERTIES OF THC-H?
Again, since tetrahydrocannabihexol is a new discovery, there has yet to be any research-based literature published on the nature of this cannabinoid. While we know of its psychoactive potential from those who have used it, it is harder to determine the non-psychoactive effects of the cannabinoid as they tend to be more subtle and cumulative, meaning that one may not feel these effects as potently as the intoxication associated with the compound.
But, we can make some safe assumptions given what we know about other tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compounds. In general, THC compounds are known to offer effects that relate to mood, physical discomfort, appetite and nausea, primarily. This is something that we see consistently in other THC-oriented cannabinoids. Basically, this means that we hope to see studies on tetrahydrocannabihexol in the future that show us its value.
WILL THC-H FAIL A DRUG TEST?
As a rule of thumb, any time you encounter a cannabinoid with “THC” in the name, you should assume that it puts you at risk of failing a drug test. Why? Because all THC-based cannabinoids are metabolized by an enzyme called which is what standard drug tests are seeking to identify in a person’s urine. Because THC-H is particularly potent, there’s good reason to believe that it’s actually more likely to fail a drug test after taking this cannabinoid than it is after taking delta 9 THC.
