What Is THC-JD?
THC-JD, or tetrahydrocannabioctyl, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. This is one of over 100 cannabinoids that we currently know of. While this cannabinoid is “new” on the market, it is not new to cannabis. This has always been a component in cannabis plants, but technology has finally caught up to identify the small concentrations of THC-JD present.
This new cannabinoid has been so popular because of its potency — which can be seen in the actual molecular makeup of THC-JD. You see, regular ol’ THC has a 5-carbon sidechain. We now know (thanks, science!) that the longer this sidechain, generally, the more potent the psychoactive effects of the cannabinoid are. So, with THC-JD having an 8-carbon sidechain — it’s the most potent naturally-occurring cannabinoid found yet. In fact, it’s estimated to be up to 19X stronger than Delta 9-THC.
Because of this increased potency, users with high tolerances have sought out the THCjp effects. Currently, little is known about this cannabinoid from a peer-reviewed, studied, academic standpoint. However, as with many aspects of this industry, we rely on and learn from our peers’ anecdotal evidence long before the science catches up.
Users of this cannabinoid report, unsurprisingly, that THC-JP offers a unique and powerful body high. This effect is especially useful for people with chronic pain symptoms, or high-tolerance users looking for intense body relaxation after a long day. It is also commonly reported that THCjd effects include long-lasting euphoria. Depending on your tolerance and the amount ingested, you can expect these relaxed and euphoric THCjd effects to last anywhere from 2-4 hours.
How Is it Made?
THC-JD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid. This means that it does not need to be synthesized into existence. However, the concentrations of this cannabinoid in the cannabis plant are very small — likely less than 1%, though exact numbers are still unknown. This means that it is highly unlikely that JHC-JD products are being made from THC-JD purely extracted from hemp plants. Most products on the market are likely converted from CBD to THC-JD through an isomerization process.
Is it Legal?
This cannabinoid, like many of them, sort of falls into a legal gray area. These products are federally legal as long as they are created from hemp that has no more than 0.3% THC (by dry weight). This is federally legal under the 2018 farm bill.
Any THC-JD extracted from cannabis plants containing more than 0.3% THC (by dry weight) would be federally illegal. Currently, there are no states that have banned this cannabinoid. However, state laws concerning cannabinoids can change rapidly.
