THC-M, DELTA-8, AND OTHER WEIRD CANNABINOIDS PEOPLE CONSUME

 

In a modern world of legal cannabis and its numerous compounds, there exists a fascinating world of lesser-known “weird cannabinoids" that are often consumed in regions where cannabis still remains illegal. No, I’m not talking about cannabis-infused alcohols or teas. Compounds such as THC-M, THC-H, Delta-8 and others are gaining attention for their potential therapeutic benefits, as well as their health risks.

So what are some of these weird cannabinoid compounds and what are their effects?

 


THC-M,

a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in certain cannabis strains, has potential therapeutic benefits such as anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and pain-relieving effects. Studies show it reduces inflammation in colitis, blocks the vomiting reflex, and may be useful for treating chronic pain.

Delta-8 THC,

a form of tetrahydrocannabinol in cannabis, has gained attention for its unique effects and potential therapeutic benefits. It produces a mellow, functional high, reduces anxiety, and may reduce nausea in chemotherapy patients.

is structurally similar to THC but differs in its alkyl side chain length. It interacts with the endocannabinoid system, specifically CB1 and CB2 receptors, modulating physiological processes. THC-H may also have therapeutic properties similar to THC, such as pain relief and anti-cancer properties.


Although the aforementioned health benefits do sound nice, much more research is still needed in order to fully understand the effects and potential health risks posed by consuming “weird cannabinoids”.

In countries where cannabis is illegal, consuming "weird cannabinoids” could pose significant health risks due to lack of regulation and oversight in their production and distribution. Contamination, unknown chemical composition, potential overdose, interaction with other drugs, mental health risks, respiratory problems, cardiovascular risks, cognitive impairment, and addiction are some of the potential risks associated with these products. Contamination can cause respiratory issues, skin irritation, and gastrointestinal distress, while unknown chemicals can cause serious health problems. Overdose can lead to hallucinations, delirium, and even death. Interactions with other drugs can increase the risk of adverse effects. Cognitive impairment can impact memory, attention, and decision-making, and addiction can lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms.


Cannabis remains illegal across 80% of the countries in the world, including Afghanistan, China, Iran, and Kuwait among others. Even though that’s the case, almost all of these countries find ways to consume cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis in a myriad of unique ways. If the world can agree on one thing, it’s that it’s about time that we legalize everywhere.
