THC is the good stuff in cannabis that gets you high and gives that euphoric feeling. However, a relatively unknown cannabinoid, THC-B, is becoming a lot more popular. Therefore, here is everything that you need to know about THC-B.
In cannabis, the primary cannabinoid is Delta-9 THC, often referred to as just THC. There is a variety of hemp-derived cannabinoids that have a lot of similarities to Delta-9 THC in chemical makeup and effects,
There are over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis, and THC-B is one of them. The main difference between THC-B and Delta-9 (D9) is that THC-B has one less carbon chain than D9. Because of this, it has a much stronger bond to the CB1 receptor in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Difference Between THC-B and Delta-9
Therefore, THC-B interacts more with the part of the body that is in charge of helping us maintain homeostasis. THC-B stands for Tetrahydrocannabutol, and it’s very new, so research is more scarce than Delta 9 THC.
Also, THC-B has a stronger bond, making it even more potent than Delta-9 THC. However, THC-B is less abundant in cannabis than THC or other cannabinoids.
Understanding the Endocannabinoid System
To get the full scope of how these cannabinoids affect our bodies, we first need to understand what happens when THC enters our bodies and where it goes.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is the human body’s way of regulating and maintaining our most vital bodily functions; this includes memory, mood, temperature control, appetite, motor function, and pain.
The ECS comprises endocannabinoids produced by the body that tell it what to do. In addition, it has cellular receptors which absorb endocannabinoids and enzymes to help the whole process move along. It is easiest to think of the endocannabinoid system as crossing guards.
Endocannabinoids are similar to the cannabinoids, such as THC from the cannabis plant. However, they are produced inside our bodies to maintain homeostasis. When we use THC or other cannabinoids, they bond to the cannabinoid receptors just like the endocannabinoids produced in our bodies.
There are two primary cannabinoid receptors in the ECS; type 2 (CB2) deals mainly with inflammation and our immune system. The CB1 receptor handles more of the brain and nervous system. When THC enters the body, it targets and activates your CB1 receptor, inducing the intoxicating effects of THC.
The endocannabinoid system maintains functions like mood, appetite, and pain, all known to be affected by THC. When THC enters the body, it acts as an activator targeting the CB1 receptor, or cannabinoid receptor type 1.
The CB1 is the primary binding site for THC, and that bond is what creates that euphoric high. However, THC-B’s bond is significantly stronger in the CB1 receptor. Nevertheless, all cannabinoids introduced into our system end up binding to the CB1 receptor.
How THC-B Affects You
There is not a lot of research detailing the full potential of THC-B since it is still relatively new. However, in the studies conducted, it’s concluded that THC-B heavily binds to the CB1 receptors.
Hemp-derived cannabinoids have come a long way, and now there are countless products on the market that have similar effects to the classic THC we are used to. THC-B is chemically closest to THC, and, based on the strong chemical bond, may be even more potent than Delta-9 THC.
