The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Potency of Cannabinoids in Cannabis: THC, THC-V, CBD etc..

Cannabis contains numerous chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, each with its own unique effects. Among the most well-known is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the plant's psychoactive effects. Here is a rundown of some common terms and their relative potency compared to regular THC (delta-9).

  1. THC (delta-9): This is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana and the benchmark for potency.

  2. THC-V (tetrahydrocannabivarin): This is a milder form of THC and is less psychoactive, but it has its own unique effects.

  3. THC-A (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid): This is a non-psychoactive form of THC that is converted into delta-9-THC as the plant dries or is heated.

  4. CBD (cannabidiol): This is a non-psychoactive compound that is widely used for its potential therapeutic effects, including reducing anxiety, inflammation, and pain.

  5. HHC (hydroxy-hexahydrocannabinol): This is a metabolite of THC and is thought to have psychoactive effects, but it is not as well-studied as other cannabinoids.

  6. HHCO (hexahydrocannabinolic acid): This is a precursor to HHC and is not considered to have significant psychoactive effects.

  7. HXC (hexahydrocannabinol): This is a rarer form of THC and is thought to have mild psychoactive effects.

  8. THC-P (tetrahydrocannabinol-phosphate): This is a rarer form of THC and is thought to have mild psychoactive effects.

  9. THC-JD (tetrahydrocannabinol-jolador): This is a rarer form of THC and is not well-studied, so its potency is not well-known.

  10. THC-X (tetrahydrocannabinol-x): This is a rarer form of THC and is not well-studied, so its potency is not well-known.

  11. THC-B (tetrahydrocannabinol-beta): This is a rarer form of THC and is not well-studied, so its potency is not well-known.

  12. PHC (para-hydroxy-cannabinol): This is a rarer form of THC and is not well-studied, so its potency is not well-known.

In summary, regular THC (delta-9) is the most potent of these compounds, with THC-V being a milder form and CBD, HHC, and the other rarer forms having varying potencies that are not well-known.
