When it comes to cannabinoids, most people are familiar with the well-known delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC) that makes up cannabis and delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-8 THC) that is the main hemp derived cannabinoid from hemp. However, both the cannabis and hemp plants contain a vast array of newer and lesser-known cannabinoids that are gaining attention for their unique properties and potential benefits. In this article, we will explore some exotic cannabinoids that go beyond Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC, providing a glimpse into the intriguing world of minor cannabinoids that can still be derived from hemp – specifically THC-P, THC-JD, and THC-H.
Italian scientists discovered THCP entirely by accident in late 2019. They were exploring a medical strain and to their surprise, instead they found a compound that acted on endocannabinoid receptors with incredible efficiency. This minor phytocannabinoid, Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP), displayed an even stronger binding ability than Delta-9 THC, the plant’s most abundant and powerful psychoactive agent.
The hemp-derived minor cannabinoid market has exploded in recent years–think Delta-8, Delta-10, THC-O, and HHC–because consumers want the Delta-9 experience without legal ramifications. THCP, known colloquially as Delta-P, is the next minor cannabinoid to offer that value, with products appearing across various categories.
That said, THCP is still relatively expensive to produce because only a few suppliers are making these products. As a result, consumers won’t find as many pure THCP vapes and edibles as they do Delta-8 and Delta-10. Instead, they’ll find several THCP blends–a more cost-effective alternative.
Today, THCP is more than just an intriguing cannabinoid with the potential to rival Delta-9’s effects. It is the latest minor cannabinoid, like Delta-8 and Delta-10, to take the hemp industry by storm. (Credit: https://www.acslabcannabis.com/blog/thcp-guide).

As we’re seeing, the list of new cannabinoids is virtually endless.
THCjd is a potent, rare, and naturally occurring cannabinoid that’s sure to win over the hearts of explorative consumers in search of their new favorite high.
THCjd is a cannabinoid that’s naturally produced in hemp and cannabis plants.
We’ll get to the effects later, but it’s worth noting that THCjd is significantly stronger than the traditional, primary psychoactive cannabinoid Delta-9 THC.
Why? That answer requires a brief scientific breakdown. On a molecular level, Delta-9 THC, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, has a 5-carbon sidechain. That might mean nothing until you realize that THCjd, also known as tetrahydrocannabioctyl, has an 8-carbon side chain. These major differences are the core reason THCjd produces such unique and powerful effects.
Seasoned users with high tolerances will definitely appreciate the euphoric high of THCjd. Although THCjd is still relatively new to the industry, consumers that have purchased a product rave about the unique high it offers compared to other popular cannabinoids.
According to many reports, it produces deep feelings of bliss and relaxation, washing the body with relief. Many users who’ve tried it compare it to the experience of other cannabinoids like THC-P, which is roughly 30x stronger than traditional Delta-9 THC.
THCjd provides a long-lasting high that lingers from 1-4 hours, depending on how much you use and your tolerance. Regardless, THCjd is a delight for seasoned users in need of something more powerful. Delta-9 THC is federally illegal unless the product contains equal to or less than 0.3% of it on a dry weight basis. Interestingly, because THCjd is not Delta-9 THC, it’s federally legal.

THC-H or Tetrahydrocannabihexol was first introduced to the research community in 2019 and has emerged as a novel minor cannabinoid with psychoactive and potential therapeutic applications.
THC-H is a unique cannabinoid that distinguishes itself with a longer n-hexyl side chain composed of six carbons, setting it apart from Delta-9 THC, which has a 5-carbon side chain. THC-H’s chemical structure allows it to more readily attach to receptors in the brain, making it notably stronger than Delta-9 THC. In fact, THC-H chemicals attach to receptors with 10% greater affinity than THC.
In the United States, hemp-derived cannabinoids, likely including THC-H, are generally regulated by the 2018 Farm Bill, which federally legalized hemp and hemp-derived products containing no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC.
The researchers who discovered THC-H considered it the second most psychoactive cannabinoid after THC-P.
In fact, many users report that the effects of THC-H are comparable to THC-P, characterized by a profound sense of euphoria and relaxation in the body and mind. THC-H is known for its producing an intense body high. Users have reported that its effects tend to last longer than typical THC experiences, sometimes even twice as long.

Just like it’s close friend THC-P, THC-H can be found in Trinity Hemp’s All-In-One KO Blends as well as Trinity’s Twisted Fusion Line!
Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid that is primarily derived from the degradation of Delta-9 THC over time, however, it can also be derived from hemp and exists in hemp naturally. It is known for its mild psychoactive effects and is often associated with sedation and relaxation as well as assisting in the uptake of other minor cannabinoids. You can find CBN featured in Trinity Hemp’s Twisted Fusion line!
So What Does It All Mean? While Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC are the most well-known cannabinoids, both the hemp and cannabis plants naturally contain a wide range of other exotic minor cannabinoids that are beginning to receive the attention they deserve. Cannabinoids like THCP, THCH, THCJD, and CBN offer unique properties and other potential benefits. Specifically, Trinity Hemp’s All In One KO Blend can help demonstrate the synergistic effects at play here – try it today to see for yourself!
