H4CBD flower Gelato, approx. 40% H4CBD content + 12% CBG - 4 grams
Our H4CBD cannabis flowers Gelato have a sweet, berry aroma, reminiscent of ice cream and jam. The dried female hemp flowers of the Cannabis Sativa L. variety with a tetrahydrocannabidiol (THD) content of 40% and a cannabigerol (CBG) content of 12% and a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of <0.2% are legally available throughout the EU.
H4-CBD, also known as THD or tetrahydrocannabidiol, is hydrogenated CBD, a psychoactive form of CBD that has a similar structure to HHC but lacks features such as a double bond. H4CBD has both R- and S-diastereomers, with the R-diastereomer considered the stronger of the two.
CANVORY cannabis flowers with 40% H4CBD THD + 12% CBG
Gelato is grown according to in a glass house cultivation facility in Slovenia. Our professional team trims and harvests the flowers by hand. Gelato is grown organically and it is free from pesticides as well as herbicides.
The small to medium hemp flowers have a seed content of <1%, are rich in H4CBD and have a low THC content (<0.2%).
About the production of hydrogenated CBD:
H4CBD is produced by adding hydrogen atoms to CBD molecules. The process of making H4CBD is similar to making margarine in a factory by hydrogenating vegetable oil. Although hydrogenation is not a particularly safe method for food production, there is no reason to believe that it will negatively affect concentrated extracts like H4CBD.
What are the benefits of H4CBD?
One improvement of hydrogenated CBD is that it offers molecular stability, which contributes to heat resistance and shelf life. Unsaturated compounds become saturated with hydrogen during hydrogenation. This is usually done to improve their shelf life and resistance to thermooxidative degradation, which occurs when these compounds are in the presence of air.
But this improved durability is not the key advantage here: H4CBD has a much stronger affinity for the human CB1 receptor than CBD, suggesting a significantly increased potency of its CB1-mediated effects, while retaining CBD's other benefits.
Most of the information we have about the effects of H4CBD comes from a single study. In 2006, a research team led by Shimon Ben-Shabat found that H4CBD - like most cannabinoids - has some anti-inflammatory potential. More importantly, however, this form of CBD appears to interact strongly with CB1 receptors, which CBD itself does not. A 2017 research report referenced Ben-Shabat's study, but did not mention any other research on the pharmacology of H4CBD.
To have some degree of certainty about the potential effects of H4CBD, further research needs to be conducted. However, there is preliminary evidence that generally confirms the effects of H4CBD suspected by researchers. This cannabinoid appears to have a similar effect on users as CBD, but with a significantly higher psychoactivity.
Does H4CBD (THD) get you high?
The claim that H4CBD is 100 times more potent than CBD is highly oversimplified. H4CBD is not as potent as CBD - by stimulating CB1 receptors, it is potent in a way that CBD is not. Like THC, THD also gives many people a pleasant, euphoric feeling when ingested. But exactly what that feeling is may not be so easily determined. At least for now. Some people report similar effects to conventional THC products. Hydrogenated CBD, or tetrahydrocannabidiol, is considered an alternative to hexahydrocannabinol (HHC), according to many opinions.
What is the difference between H4CBD and CBD?
H4CBD differs from CBD in that it is technically produced synthetically. Hydrogenation is considered one of the simpler forms of synthesis, but because its chemical structure has been altered to accommodate more hydrogen components, H4CBD can no longer be considered a purely natural cannabinoid.
CBD and H4CBD also seem to differ in terms of their effects. One of the advantages of CBD is that it is non-intoxicating while still providing many of the benefits associated with cannabis. H4CBD seems to veer on the non-intoxicating side of the spectrum, but only by a razor-thin margin.
H4CBD isn't exactly THC, but it isn't CBD either. In this respect, H4CBD is similar to many of the THC alternatives that have hit the market recently, but in this case, it is a CBD alternative. Since cannabinoids are not all that different from one another chemically, it was inevitable that repeated tinkering would result in options that covered the full spectrum of psychoactivity.
When was H4CBD discovered?
H4CBD was discovered in 1940 as part of the efforts of the Todd Group, a pioneering group of cannabis researchers responsible for identifying dozens of cannabinoids and synthesizing dozens more. In the early days, H4CBD was produced by catalyzing CBD with a metal alloy, but safer processes are generally used in today's H4CBD products.
