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.


Will THC-P get me high?  

It is important to understand that THC-P is chemically different from Delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds. Most users claim they experience a mild psychoactive effect in comparison to the psychoactive effect of Delta-9-THC. 


Will I pass a drug test if I use THC-P?  

Again, in order to use THC-P, it is vital to understand that THC-P is chemically different from Delta-9-THC by only a few atomic bonds. While our products contain a value of 0.3% or less Δ9THC (or no more than 0.3% Δ9THC), there is a small amount of Δ9THC that may cause you to fail a drug test. If possible, please consult the administer of your drug test in order to receive further clarification.


What do I need to use THC-P cartridges?

Our THC-P cartridges are designed to attach to any standard, 510 threaded vape pen or vape device. If you do not have a vape pen or device that can attach to our THC-P cartridges, you can typically find a solution at your local vape/smoke shop.


How much THC-P is in each cartridge?

We happily provide third-party Certificates of Authenticity (C.O.A.'s) for our customers to review and analyze. You can find exactly how much THC-P is in our cartridges by reviewing these lab tests mentioned above.


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.


Do you sell and ship THC-P to my state?

Delta Extrax Closely monitors all Federal and State laws and regulations.  If you live in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, Utah, & Washington we are unfortunately unable to process or sell Delta Extrax products to you at this time.


What do I do if my THC-P device becomes clogged?

First, it's important to understand that this is very common with thicker liquids such as THC-P. However, this is very easy to fix once you know what to do! The best tip for making sure your cartridge or device stays unclogged is to properly store your cartridge/device upright in a room temperature setting. If you are still finding your cartridge/device becoming clogged, you may just need to warm up the liquid so that the mouthpiece has proper airflow. Sometimes, the liquid can end up in the mouthpiece which is the reason why it is becoming clogged, but this is completely normal. To fix this issue, you can either warm up your device by taking a few 3-second puffs until you begin to feel some type of airflow from the device. Another option is to warm up your device with a hairdryer or by placing it in a warmer location. Overall, these should warm up the liquid so that the airflow returns and you can begin to use your device as normal.
