Delta THC

Delta-THC is a form of THC that is derived from hemp plants with unique properties compared to other cannabinoids.
Delta-THC is different from other cannabinoids because it has a slightly different chemical structure.
This small difference in structure is thought to make delta-THC more potent and faster-acting than regular THC.
Delta-THC is an exciting development in the world of cannabinoids, and has the potential to offer unique benefits to those who use it.

Delta-6

Delta-6 THC is short for Delta 6a10a THC but is also known as D6a ad Delta-3 THC. The most significant difference between Delta-6 THC and Delta-3 THC is its chemical structure. Although both have similar properties, there are slight differences in how the chemicals are aligned. The results in a different type of high that is better for people with a lower tolerance.

This makes Delta-6 THC a lot more potent than normal HHC because of its chemical structure. It can be 33 times more potent than HHC and possibly even more potent than actual THC. However, PHC is still Hemp compliant with less than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC.

Delta-8

Delta-8 THC is a powerful cannabinoid native to the cannabis flower. Delta-8 THC is an isomer of CBD, which is a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. In other words, Delta-8 THC is sort of a middle ground between hemp, CBD, and THC-Delta-9.

According to The National Cancer InstituteDelta-8 THC is defined as “an analog of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.” They also stated that “this agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis.”

Delta-9

Delta-9 THC is probably the most popular cannabinoid, as it is the one most closely associated with traditional cannabis. However, the Delta-9 THC we use comes from the Hemp plant, and not from Marijuana.

THC is the most prevalent psychoactive compound in Marijuana, but less prevalent in Hemp. The Delta-9 variety is the one most responsible for the recreational ‘high’ associated with cannabis. It can be detected in the human body for up to twenty hours after ingestion, even though its psychoactive effects only last a few hours at most.

Delta-9p

Delta-9P THC is Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) derived from Delta 9. Most THCP products come from a blend of Delta 8 and Delta 9. However, D9P THC is extracted strictly from Delta 9, which comes from Hemp. The fundamental difference between THCP and D9P THC is in its chemical composition – the double bond is in the 9th Carbon.

Delta-10

Delta-10 is a powerful cannabinoid native to the hemp flower. It’s very similar to Delta-8 THC in the way it’s made; THC is extracted from the Hemp plant, then the Delta-10 THC is isolated and made into a distillate that is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.

Delta-10 THC is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids you can find in hemp and cannabis. Unlike Delta-9 THC, which is mostly found in cannabis, Delta-10 appears in trace amounts within the Hemp plant and is extracted to create our Delta-10 products.

Delta-11

Delta-11 THC goes by different names which include: HXY11-THC, 11-Hydroxy-THC, 11 OH THC, and D11. Our body naturally breaks down D8 and D9 edibles turning them into 11-Hydroxy-THC. We’ve discovered a natural way to unlock that same onset experience through vaping instead of edibles using Delta-11 THC.

Some of the benefits of Delta-11 THC include a faster delivery system. Normally, when you ingest an edible you’ll have to wait up to an hour to an hour and a half in order to feel the onset effect; but when you vape D11 the onset effects should hit you a lot faster. This typically happens between 15 – 30 minutes.

THCa

THCA, or Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid, is a naturally occurring compound in Hemp and a precursor to THC. In its raw form, THCA is non-psychoactive, but it turns into THC through decarboxylation, which happens when THCA gets exposed to heat. When vaped or smoked, THCA becomes psychoactive, which can get you high. How much THC comes from THCA depends on the amount of heat, quality, and strain.

THC-B

THC-B stands for Tetrahydrocannabutol, which is known to be a homologue of Delta-9 THC. This means that it’s closely related. The most significant difference is in its chemical structure. THC-B’s chemical compounds make it more binding to the CB1 receptors in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The CB1 receptor is the part of our brain responsible for that high feeling you get when you consume THC. Therefore, THC-B can produce a better and stronger high for some people.

You can expect to experience similar euphoric sensations as you would with Delta-9. However, it is not turbulent or with mental cloudiness like Delta 9 THC. The type of experience will also depend on your THC tolerance as it does bind to your Endocannabinoid receptors. This is what ultimately determines the type of experience.

THCH

The difference with THCh when compared to Delta-8 is its potency, which is noticeable on a molecular level. This is because Tetrahydrocannabihexol (THCh) has a 6-carbon sidechain while regular THC has only a 5-carbon sidechain.

The hexol in Tetrahydrocannabihexol refers to the 6-carbon sidechain in the THC. This is significant because Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC only have a 5-carbon sidechain. A longer side chain on a cannabinoid results in more intense, drawn out psychoactive effects.

THCJD

Tetrahydrocannabioctyl, commonly known as THCjd is another potent cannabinoid with an even longer carbon sidechain . This cannabinoid has an 8-carbon sidechain which makes it the most potent cannabinoid to date.

This 8-carbon sidechain means that THCjd is 19 times stronger than THC. This means that THCjd has a 19% higher chance of sticking to your receptors. These receptors in your body are responsible for that psychoactive feeling that you get. 

THCM

THCM stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol-Methoxy or, more accurately, THC Methyl Ether (THC-MeO). It is referred to as Methoxy because it has an additional Methyl group in its chemical composition.

Other cannabinoids such as Delta-8, Delta-9, Delta-10, etc., get their name from where the double bond is located in their carbon atom. Delta-8 has a double bond in the 8th carbon, Delta-9 in the 9th carbon, Delta-10 in the 10th carbon, and so on. 

THCM doesn’t have a unique double bond number. Instead, it has an oxygen atom connected to a carbon atom. So, there could be other versions in D8, D9, or D10.

THCP

In its initial form, THCP, is cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), commonly known as “mother cannabinoid” which other cannabinoids are derived from. When heated, the molecule is formed by carboxyl groups, which comprise of one carbon, two oxygen, and one hydrogen atom.

Depending on which enzymes it interacts with, CBGA can become tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) or cannabidiol acid (CBDA), among others. On the other hand, TCHPA (Tetrahydrocannabiphorol Acid) and CBDPA (Cannabidiphorol Acid) become THCP and CBDP when heated. In the overall cannabinoid makeup, these are only a small percentage, and they are quite potent. In fact, THCP is 33 times stronger than regular THC, so its effects on the body are amplified.

THCV

While all these cannabinoids are derived from the Hemp plant, THCV is specifically derived from a type of CBG cannabinoid. THCV is more often found in Hemp strains that have originated from Africa, though other strains can have high amounts too.

When taken in low doses, THCV is not psychoactive, so much higher doses are needed in order to achieve that effect. THCV also suppresses the desire for munchies, and users don’t often experience unusual cravings.

THCX

THC-X is not a new cannabinoid, but a blend of cannabinoids. This proprietary blend is unique to Savage Enterprises and cannot be found anywhere else.

THC-X produces a euphoric sensation similar to Delta-9, but it is not turbulent, nor does it bring mental cloudiness.

HXY-THC

A series of exciting new cannabinoids are Hydroxy-THC. Hydroxy-THC is a naturally occurring potent isolate that brings on powerful effects.
These effects are based on their chemical structure, so keep reading to learn more!

HXY-8

Our body naturally creates the cannabinoid 8-hydroxy-THC when you consume THC. To help your body absorb more of this molecule, we isolated it, resulting in a more potent version of Delta-8 THC. The number before the word “hydroxy” tells you where the double bond is in the molecule.

HXY-9

The 9-Hydroxy-THC cannabinoid is a chemical your body naturally produces when you consume THC. However, we managed to isolate this chemical to allow your body to absorb more. The end goal is to make regular Hemp-derived THC more potent. The number before the word “hydroxy” represents where the double bond is.

HXY-10

Your body naturally creates the cannabinoid 10-hydroxy-THC when you consume THC, just like 9-Hydroxy-THC. To help your body absorb more of this molecule, we isolated it. The result is an increase in the potency of THC generated from ordinary Hemp.

HXY-11

11-hydroxy-THC, or HXY-11 THC, is a highly potent THC metabolite typically produced when the body metabolizes Delta-9 THC. Studies show that HXY-11 is much more psychoactive than Delta-9 THC, with a potency rate that’s 7 times its predecessor. The effects of HXY-11 are felt more pronounced when it’s consumed through an edible rather than inhaled through a vape.

Other Cannabinoids

In addition to hemp derived Delta-THC, THC, and Hydroxy-THC, there are more incredible cannabinoids.
Due to their structural makeup, they are not quite considered THC and produce different effects.
When added to other cannabinoid blends, these help curate a satisfying experience that our customers love.

HXC

The biggest difference between HXC and other Hemp products that we carry, such as Delta-8 THC, Delta-9 THC, etc. is that HXC has no double bond in its carbon chain. Whereas products like Delta-8 have a double bond in the 8th carbon, and Delta-9 has a double bond in the 9th carbon. If we were to compare the effects of HXC, it would be somewhere between Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC.

You can expect to experience similar euphoric sensations as you would with THC. However, some users have said that it provides mental cloudiness like Delta-9 THC, but not turbulent. The type of experience will also depend on your THC tolerance, although HXC is not THC, it does bind to your Endocannabinoid receptors. This is what ultimately determines the type of experience from HXC.

HXC-P

HXC-P or Hexahydrocannabiphorol, is very similar to its THC counterpart – THCP. What makes HXC-P is the long alky sidechain located within its chemical structure. While most cannabinoids such as regular THC and HHC have only five alky sidechains, HXC-P has a 7-Carbon sidechain.

This makes HXC-P a lot more potent than normal HHC because of its chemical structure. It can be 33 times more potent than HHC and possibly even more potent than actual THC. However, HXC-P is still Hemp compliant with less than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC.

PHC

PHC, also known as Hydrox4phc, is very similar to Delta-11 THC in that it’s the way your body processes Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC. Once THC is metabolized it creates a very potent psychoactive experience that gives edibles that strong kick. However, we figured out a way to extract the naturally-occurring compound from the hemp plant for that added push.

This makes PHC much more potent than normal HHC because of its chemical structure. Also, it can be 33 times more powerful than HHC and possibly even more potent than actual THC. However, PHC is still Hemp compliant with less than 0.3% of Delta-9 THC.
