Like all other cannabinoids, H4CBD comes in many forms to appeal to all types of consumers.
At the beginning of its commercialization, it was mainly available in the form of distillate: it is a liquid highly concentrated in substance, which enters the composition of products such as cartridges, e-liquids, oils, etc.
Today, it begins to appear in more popular formats: resins, flowers, vape pen, e-liquid, etc..
Are there any side effects to using H4CBD products?
As for any product acting on the body, the effects felt vary from one individual to another. If benefits have been identified by many consumers, some side effects may occur:
- Nausea or digestive disorders;
- dry mouth sensation;
- mood disorders;
- decreased ability to concentrate;
- motor coordination disorders.
Remember that H4CBD is a new and under-researched product, so consumers should be cautious. Always start with moderate and low doses, especially if you are not familiar with cannabinoids.
If you experience any unpleasant effects, it is best to stop using it.
Obviously, H4CBD is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or before a car journey.
What is H4CBD?
H4CBD, also called hydrogenated CBD or tetrahydrocannabidiol, is a semi-synthetic form of cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. This hydrogenated version of CBD is produced in the laboratory by adding hydrogen atoms to a CBD molecule.
The origin and history of H4CBD can be traced back to the creation of different synthetic and semi-synthetic versions of cannabinoids by scientists in the mid-20th century. Since then, H4CBD has been studied for its potential pharmacological properties, including its psychoactive and anti-inflammatory effect.
H4CBD is different from CBD in terms of chemical composition and physiological consequences. CBD has low affinity for the CB1 receptor and does not produce a significant psychotropic effect, while H4CBD is 100 times more potent than CBD at CB1 receptors, producing a more pronounced psychoactive effect. Additionally, H4CBD has been shown to have greater anti-inflammatory ability than CBD.
