At the time of this article being published, tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THC-P) is one of the newest cannabinoid discoveries resulting from intensive research into the chemical composition of the hemp plant. Heralded as the most psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp, it’s estimated to be 10x as intoxicating as delta-9 THC, making it quite powerful to say the least. For all THC-P newbies out there, you need to be very aware of certain things before starting a new routine with the cannabinoid. This is to ensure you get to enjoy all that THC-P is capable of in a way that fully suits your needs.
DO: Think Carefully About Your Delivery Method
THC-P products come in different delivery methods, such as edibles and inhalable products like vapes and flower. Each delivery method behaves in its own way. Consider what you want out of your tetrahydrocannabiphorol experience, and then select the proper method for your needs.
- THC-P Inhalable products can produce effects within just minutes, which last for a couple of hours and feel particularly potent.
- THC-P Edibles take up to a couple hours to kick in but provide effects for up to 8 hours, with a stronger body high effect that’s great for putting the body at ease.
DO: Put Time Aside for THC-P
Since tetrahydrocannabiphorol is highly psychoactive, you need to have a clear schedule for a few hours, especially as a beginner. The high can cause some level of impairment that interferes with work and other responsibilities. Last thing you want happening, is getting very high off of a THC-P product and then having to engage in something that requires complete concentration and awareness.
DO: Think About the Strain You Want
Certain THC-P products like vapes and flower come in different strains, and each strain is going to offer its own unique effects, as well as flavor profile. Read about each strain available at Gas on our product pages to decide which one is best for you. Some strains are great for evening, since they can mellow you out, while some can make you feel more alert and uplifted during the day.
DO: Research a Brand Before Buying
Before purchasing a THC-P product, make sure that you fully research the company that you’re buying from. For instance, read reviews to make sure that other customers are happy with their products, as well. Plus, look for third-party lab reports on their website, as this shows that the company has their products tested for purity, potency, and federal compliance by an unbiased, state-licensed facility.
DO: Be Conscious of Your Tolerance
THC-P is the most intoxicating cannabinoid in the hemp plant, so be aware of your overall THC tolerance before taking it. If you’ve never tried an intoxicating cannabinoid before, you’ll probably want to start with something milder like delta-8 THC, and work your way up to THC-P. While THC-P isn’t dangerous, it can definitely get you very intoxicated beyond the point of your comfort level as a beginner.
DO: Try Out Different Types of THC-P Products
There are all kinds of great THC-P products out there, and all sorts of strains to explore. We always encourage our customers to try out different THC-P products to see what they like. You may be surprised by how much a specific product really resonates your needs, so keep an open mind and explore what’s available.
DON’T: Take Too Much as a Beginner
Since you’re a THC-P beginner, you have no idea what your tolerance to this cannabinoid is just yet. So, don’t take a huge dose of it the first couple of times. After all, you don’t want to get so high that you actually feel uncomfortable. Instead, stick to the suggested amount on the label, and only increase your dosage amount gradually as desired.
DON’T: Drive After Taking THC-P
Because tetrahydrocannabiphorol is intoxicating, you should never drive after taking it. Driving while intoxicated is both illegal and dangerous. Wait until the effects have worn off before getting behind the wheel.
DON’T: Take THC-P if You Have an Upcoming/Pending Drug Test
Tetrahydrocannabiphorol is metabolized by THC-COOH, an enzyme that also breaks down delta-9 THC. Urine-based drug tests identify THC-COOH in a person’s body, resulting in a failed test. Basically, if you take THC-P, your chances of failing a drug test are pretty high.
DON’T: Go with the Cheapest THC-P Formula
There is lots of THC-P on the market today, but not all of its created equally. Sadly, there will always be companies that use poor manufacturing practices, low-quality ingredients or such low concentrations of the cannabinoid that the effects are disappointing. Avoid settling for the most inexpensive THC-P you can find, since you’ll probably wish you never bought it at all.
DON’T: Be Impatient After Taking a THC-P Product
A common mistake for a lot of users, regardless of experience level, is not waiting long enough after taking some tetrahydrocannabiphorol to think that they need to take more because they aren’t feeling anything yet. With inhalable products, THC-P can take up to about 30 minutes before the effects kick in. Edibles are even longer, taking up to a couple of hours. Be patient, and if enough time passes and nothing happens, then you can take a little more. The next day, consider taking a slightly higher dose since it may be that you naturally have a high tolerance to cannabinoids.
Following These Simple Rules Will Make Your THC-P Experience Even More Awesome!
Overall, tetrahydrocannabiphorol is a nontoxic cannabinoid that comes in many user-friendly formula options. So, the worst things that can happen are that you end up with a cheap, low-quality product, or get way too high as a beginner.
