As the legality of cannabis continues to trend towards a more inclusive global community, our knowledge of the plant and its components also continues to expand.
So much so that even novel cannabinoids are sprouting on our radar. Credit to new discoveries must be attributed to the expert farmers, scientients, and advocates who, over the last few years, have approached their research with immense enthusiasm to responsibly and masterfully innovate cannabis.
Innovation can be anything, from new methods of cannabinoid consumption, like CBD vape products, to entirely new cannabinoids like THCP, Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC, and THC-O.
The biggest issue with new cannabis-derived substances is their relative ‘new-ness’, which invites unintentional but unavoidable regulations famous for changing constantly and being difficult to understand. This renders ‘new-cannabinoids’ as an antonym for ‘legal cannabinoids.’

What Is THCP?
A phytocannabinoid is a naturally produced component of the cannabis plant. The densest concentration of phytocannabinoids is found in trichomes, fine outgrowths on the surface of cannabis leaves.
Trichomes must be vaporized or burned before they are safe to consume. The cannabinoid content in them can also be extracted and used to make other products like CBD oils, edibles, and topicals.
THCP is a phytocannabinoid and much newer to the game than THC or CBD, having been discovered in 2019 by Italian researchers. Delta 9 THC and THCP are very similar in molecular structure, which inadvertently could be the reason why THCP’s discovery was elusive for so many years. The main difference between the two is that the THC molecule carries five carbon atoms while THCP has seven.
We can say this: The effects of novel THC derivatives, like THCP, differ from the effects associated with Delta 8 & 10 products, although, any conclusive claims are still waiting on the research’s verdict. So far it is clear that the effects are mostly subjective for each user. There are some who claim THCP has a higher potency than THC, but there is no consensus on that either.

Where to Buy THCP Legally
The legal status of most new cannabinoids is difficult to assess due to the cannabis industry constantly evolving. There are state laws and there are federal laws, which, in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, grant legality as long as they are extracted from the hemp plant with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC per unit of dry weight.
States that have fully legalized medicinal and recreational use of marijuana (psychoactive variety of cannabis) can also enjoy THCP as a legal cannabinoid. But given its newness, THCP is not available in some states that have been slow to amend their rulings on cannabinoids.
But they are available right here at the Hemmfy Marketplace, the same place where you’ll find the following best-selling THCP products:

The effects of THCP have not yet been robustly studied, mostly due to the novelty of the cannabinoid and the fact that most efforts have been concentrated on understanding the cannabinoid’s molecular structure.
In the 2019 study that is thought to be the first evidence of THCP, evaluation of the cannabinoid showed that ‘THCP decreased locomotor activity…’ and ‘induced catalepsy and produced analgesia miming the properties of full CB1 receptor agonists’.
While this does not describe the effects of THCP, it does open a path for a discussion about the potential benefits it could provide consumers. This brings us to the same conclusion as the study, namely, that ‘the discovery of an extremely potent THC-like phytocannabinoid may shed light on several pharmacological effects not ascribable solely to Delta 9 THC’.
Potential benefits and effects are not necessarily interlinked with the sensation of cannabinoids. The feeling onset by THCP is an issue dependent on personal variables such as tolerance, weight, and pre-existing conditions.
