As of 2020, a new cannabinoid has joined the ranks of the current ones and is called THC-JD. While there hasn’t been enough information produced from research studies, we want to share what is known as of this point in time. We are aware that scientific research is often hard to come by. Consequently, the only information we can share here is what we’ve learned from anecdotes and firsthand experience. What we also know is that THC-JD occurs naturally.
However, it’s only found in trace amounts, just like other minor cannabinoids. But, unlike Delta-8, HHC, and THC-P, THC-JD is extracted directly from marijuana. No additional isomerization or synthesis is required. Another aspect we’re aware of is there are 8 carbon chains in THC-JD compared to 5 in THC. So this THC variant will form a stronger bond with CB1 receptors. Whenever that happens, you experience a more pronounced high. This is one of the reasons for its popularity.
Benefits and Effects
Users have reported that the effects of THC-JD are similar to regular THC only stronger. So if you use a vape pen to smoke your THC and feel happy, hungry, and ready for bed, then you can expect THC-JD to intensify those feelings. Just be forewarned that consuming too much of this cannabinoid, as with others, will cause some unpleasant side effects such as anxiety, dizziness, loss of coordination, nausea, and paranoia.
Furthermore, some users have reported it’s more like an Indica high instead of a Sativa high. In other words, it causes “couch potato” syndrome. Still other users claim that THC-JD is energizing and boosts their mood. The reality is that all cannabis strains affect individuals differently. Without additional research and studies, we are still in the “getting-to-know-you” stage with THC-JD.
The Big Question: Is it Legal?
The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized hemp which allowed for the sale and distribution of products manufactured with this material. Hemp has an extremely high THC content and the aforementioned Farm Bill led to the dramatic release of CBD products, thereby creating a new consumer market. Other cannabinoids soon followed suit, some of which will result in getting high. Smokers looking to experiment love such stuff and create a demand in the market.
So is THC-JD legal? Yes and no. It just depends on its source of origin. So if it’s extracted from marijuana, it can only be sold in a dispensary. On the other hand, if it’s extracted from hemp, then it falls into the legal loophole, provided it doesn’t contain more than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC.
