THCjd – The New Cannabinoid That’s 18 Times More Potent Than THC

If you thought we already got to know all the cannabinoids, then you are wrong. Recently, we learned about new compounds found in cannabis, such as Delta-8-THC, THCP, THC-O, and others. But in 2022, another star appeared on the market – THCjd (Δ9-THCjd).

Considered more potent than Delta 9 and a natural phytocannabinoid found in cannabis, THCjd is rapidly gaining ground in states where recreational marijuana use is legal.

Δ9-THCjd to be precise, was discovered in 2022 along with THCh, and is now gradually gaining ground. So why is THCjd becoming more popular? Because it causes more potent psychoactive effects, which are even assessed by many as psychedelic effects.

What is THCjd?

THCjd is believed to be much more potent than D9-THC. More specifically, its potency is somewhere between regular THC and THCP.

Research shows that THCP (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabiporol) is up to 30 times more potent than Delta-9-THC, the famous THC. Meanwhile, the potency of THCjd is (anecdotally) predicted to be around 18x – 19x higher than what THC can offer.

But for THCP, we have studies available. This is not the case with THCjd. Its power or health effects have yet to be verified or studied by scientists. We don’t even know who exactly discovered this link.

THCjd is a phytocannabinoid that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant. Unlike other cannabinoids that have recently hit the market (THC-O, HHC), it is not synthetic.

The concentration of THCjd in cannabis is low, as is Delta 8 THC. Thus, THCjd in retail products is usually the result of cannabinoid conversion. In some cases, cannabinoid conversions occur naturally. For example, when you smoke a joint, you convert non-psychoactive THC into psychoactive THC.

Is THCjd Psychoactive?

Yes, it has a psychoactive effect. The psychoactive effect of THCjd is believed to be approximately 18-19 times more potent than THC’s.

How does it work?

Each cannabinoid uniquely affects the human body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. The better we understand how each cannabinoid works, the better we can shape and tailor cannabis use to individual needs.

In other words, the new cannabinoid revolution helps us gain better control over the effects we want. THCjd is a newly discovered cannabinoid, and we don’t know much about its effects. There are currently no published studies on THCjd or its effects.

There is still a long way to go before we really understand how THCjd works on the human body. But, regardless of the obstacles that hold back cannabis science, one thing is for sure. The main difference between THC and THCjd is the length of the carbon chain.

And in combination with other cannabinoids

Now that THCjd is just hitting the market, it will most likely be found in combination with other cannabinoids such as Delta 8 THC.

The combination of selected cannabinoids allows you to achieve the desired effects. At the same time, we can get a solid high without feeling anxious. It’s all a matter of combining the right cannabinoids in specific proportions.

Reports on the effects of THCjd are increasing on forums like Reddit. Most often, the effects of THCjd are described as comparable to those of the potent Indica strains, which are best suited for end-of-day use.

Most users describe the effects of THCjd products as being very similar to THC – you experience waves of euphoria at first, then you get deeper and deeper peace with time. Some users, however, experience effects that they describe as “psychedelic.”

THCjd benefits

At this point, there is no reliable scientific data on the potential benefits of THCjd. There aren’t even preclinical animal studies, so the relationship is still shrouded in mystery.

This is a bit of a hassle as there is not a single study to verify what this cannabinoid is all about.

Overall, THCjd is a new phytocannabinoid that has hit the US market but is not yet available as a finished product in Europe. Keep in mind that there is no reliable research yet on THCjd, covering either short-term or long-term effects.

Add to that the fact that there are no unified lab testing standards, so it’s the wild west. There is no reliable information on the amount that is sufficient to obtain psychoactive effects. So, if you are going to buy products containing THCjd, make sure you purchase products from reputable suppliers.
