FAQ | THC-P
What is THC-P?
THCP first begins as a substance initially formed as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), known as the “mother cannabinoid” from which cannabinoids derive from. As carboxyl groups (molecules comprising one carbon, two oxygen, and one hydrogen atom) from the molecule. This happens when the plant part is heated.
Otherwise, it has no biological effect. Depending on the various enzymes with which it interacts, CBGA can become tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) or cannabidiol acid (CBDA), among others. Again, these have little effect when consumed. It’s only when the carboxyl group falls off that they do.
By the same token, TCHPA (Tetrahydrocannabiphorol Acid) and CBDPA (Cannabidiphorol Acid) become THCP and CBDP when heated. They compose only a small percentage of a plant’s overall cannabinoid makeup — and they’re quite potent. In fact, THCP is 33 times stronger than regular THC, which means its effects on the body are amplified.
What Can I Expect From THC-P?
If you are at least a semi-regular cannabis user, you have likely already consumed THCP. It is present in trace amounts in many strains of Sativa. As not all strains have been analyzed at the molecular level, it’s quite possible that some strains have a higher percentage of THCP. An unexpected high even with a small dose may be due to the presence of THCP.
As with any cannabis use, observe your body’s reactions and limit your dosage if you are experiencing side effects. THC may cause paranoia, anxiety, fatigue, dry mouth and eyes, memory loss, and gastrointestinal distress in some users. It’s reasonable to assume that as THCP binds to more CB1 receptors, its side effects may be more intense.

What are terpenes? Are they used in your THC-P products?
According to Leafly, terpenes are defined as, “aromatic oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine” and they are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
Terpenes were initially developed by plants for the adaptive purpose of repelling pests and predators. There are over 100 terpenes found in the cannabis plant and every strain of the cannabis plant contains a “unique terpene type and composition”. Nowadays, terpenes are used to create scents, flavors and, occasionally, different feelings or sensations.
