Delta 9 THCH Products
In 2019, THCP, an extremely potent cannabinoid 30 times stronger than THC — was discovered by an Italian research team. A year later, they released their follow-up, a study on the discovery of THCH, also known as Delta 9 THCH, or Tetrahydrocannabihexol. We believe these Italian researchers and scientists have made the most important contributions ever to the cannabis community. What did they discover? That THCH is 25 times stronger than cannabis!
These scientists in Italy are outstanding, and their discoveries are molto bene!
THCH is the second most potent hemp-derived cannabinoid ever discovered. As noted (and as we’ll note quite a few times moving forward), it is over 20 times more potent than THC. But what exactly is delta 9 THCH? To begin, this compound has a high that is profoundly euphoric, relaxing, and chill. It gives users both a sweet body high and a cerebral head rush. The people who have tried it describe it as overwhelming warmth.

What Is THCH? There’s Another New Cannabinoid?
THCH is part of a new class of compounds that are unofficially called THC+. THCP, THCH, and others like it are super robust and hearty. They get you blasted (in a highly safe way). Cannabinoids like these are taking the industry over right now. So how come we’re only learning about them now?
THCH has always been there. It is a naturally occurring hemp cannabinoid, like most hemp derivatives, legalized after the Farm Bill was passed in 2018. Still, researchers were unaware of its existence until 2020. That’s when a crack team of scientists in Italy — the same ones who discovered THCP — uncovered THCH. While delta 9 THCH is new, thanks to some thorough research, we know a good deal about it. For example, we see the following for sure about THCh:
- THCH is a naturally occurring cannabinoid compound present in hemp
- THCH is only found in small concentrations in the hemp plant.
- It’s not enough to be viable for commercial sale.
- However, manufacturers can use cannabinoid conversion processes to generate enough.
- Natural processes convert delta 8 and delta 9 into THCH.
- THCH is quite similar to delta 9 THC, except for the potency.
Comparing Delta 9 THCH vs. Delta 9 THC
THCH is pretty similar, if not almost identical, to traditional THC. From a user standpoint, both produce warm, peaceful highs. THCH, much like delta 9, affects the body and mind, giving users a gentle body buzz and a cerebral high. Much of the difference between the cannabinoids seem to be due to potency. If we look at delta 9 as our baseline compound, THCH is 25 times more intense.
From a scientific and chemical perspective, both compounds are almost identical. THCH and delta 9 THC look the same under the microscope, as both have similar molecules organized differently. Scientists refer to THCH as a homolog of delta 9 THC, meaning that it’s so similar as to almost be mistaken for it. For example, THCH has six carbons in its alkyl sidechain, while regular or traditional THC only has five — a minor difference.
But these minor differences allow THCH to be 25 times more potent.
How Is Delta 9 THCH Made?
THCH may be a newly discovered cannabinoid, but it’s already making waves in the cannabis market. In 2018, the folks in Congress who usually can’t agree on what to have for lunch got together and passed the Farm Bill. They legalized hemp and, by default, legalized any cannabinoids extracted from hemp. The best part? There are 100s of cannabinoids — hundreds!
But — and this is a big but—many cannabinoids, including THCH, are only found in small concentrations. They’re not commercially viable. Manufacturers go to the laboratory to create more significant amounts of these cannabinoids, where scientists can now use cannabinoid conversion processes. All-natural cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and delta 9 are transformed into other compounds employing organic methods.
Is THCH Synthetic?
Scientists use the same processes that occur in nature to convert cannabinoids into THCh. They also use all-natural compounds. Some may argue the process is semi-synthetic, but again, it’s more a question of semantics. THCH is exceptionally potent. It is the second most powerful cannabinoid on the planet. When chemists use cannabinoid conversions, the compound they end up with is structurally identical to the THCH you can extract from hemp — because it is THCH.
THCH Can Also Come From Delta 8 and Delta 9
What’s extremely interesting about THCH — much more so than most other compounds —is how it reacts and changes during the cannabinoid conversion process. By now, we’ve all heard about CBD transforming itself into delta 8 or lab technicians changing delta 8 into HHC. But today, scientists are using delta 8 and delta 9 to create fascinating new types of THCH.
Remember, THCH is a homolog of delta 9, meaning it’s pretty similar in structure and effect. So when chemists use delta 9 to make THCH, you get — you guessed it — delta 9 THCH. But, when they use delta 8, you get delta 8 THCH, a somewhat less potent, more relaxed version of the compound. However, delta 9 THCH is slightly more powerful. Both give users a mighty high.
How Strong is Delta 9 THCH?
Still, we can’t stress this enough (which is why we continue to repeat it), THCH is the second most potent cannabinoid ever found by researchers. It is 25 times more powerful and robust than THC — which is the typical way of measuring these things. THCP, the most potent cannabinoid, is 33 times stronger than cannabis. The toughest, heartiest, most potent cannabinoids have only been discovered over the past three years, which means the future looks very bright.
So Then, How Does THCH Compare to Other Cannabinoids?
Do you want to know if THCH may replace HHC as your new daily cannabinoid of choice? Are you ready to see how THCH compares to some of your favorites? Are you a big fan of delta 8 or a colossal delta 10 enthusiasts? Let’s take a look.
Delta 8 vs. THCH
Delta 8 THCH was the first prominent legal cannabinoid to hit the scene a few years ago, and as such, it’s one of the most popular today. It’s also one of the most prohibited at the state level. For those who love a good buzz, delta 8 is smooth and subtle, with no paranoia or anxiety. It’s a great beginner compound and perfect for staying chill while getting things done.
Delta 10 vs. THCH
We’ve noted this before on our blogs and articles, but delta 10 THC is a workhorse. When you need energy and focus or to finish a big project, choose delta 10 THC. It is, in many ways, the opposite of THCH — it is, in many ways, the opposite of most cannabinoids. Do you want to relax or get things done?
HHC vs. THCH
HHC is roughly 80% as potent as delta 9, and it’s a great way to graduate to the next level for anyone stuck on the delta 8 train for a while. It’s nowhere near as potent as THCH, but nothing is.
Delta 11 and THCP vs. THCH
Everything in this category — Delta 11, THCP, and THCH — is part of a new class of cannabinoids called THC+. All of them offer similar delta 9-like effects with varying degrees of strength. They’re solid and potent and will knock you out. The only question is, how high do you want to get?

Are THCH Products Safe?
Right now, THCH is highly new to the market. While we’re confident in saying it’s safe — after all, it comes from hemp, the safest plant on the planet — the research is still in its infancy. In other words, there is nothing concrete to point toward right now. As safe as hemp and hemp byproducts are, THCH is an extremely potent cannabinoid. Users should always take caution, mainly if they’re not accustomed to such strong products.
Some possible side effects of THCH may include the following:
- Dry Mouth
- Extended Psychoactive Experiences
- Red Eyes
As with all compounds, users are cautioned to start with small doses and work their way up. The low and slow method teaches us that we should begin with a low dose and slowly increase until we hit a peak that we’re comfortable with. Remember, you can always take more but you can’t take less!
Delta 9 THCH Legality
THCH is federally legal. The Farm Bill, the famous legislation passed into law in 2018, has made it legal for cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabihexol to be used in the United States. Under the Farm Bill, hemp and its derivatives are now legal — CBD, delta 8, delta 10, HHC, and even delta 9 with a THC amount under 0.3%.
However, some states have passed analog laws. What this means is that THCH might be illegal based on the fact that it mimics other illicit compounds. While THCH itself isn’t mentioned in any state laws, there is a slight possibility of users facing adverse consequences. The following states have passed laws that may affect THCH use. Consumers should tread carefully:
- New York
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
