Spensary’s THCP, D9 THC, and CBD gummies are the real deal when it comes to long-lasting, euphoric relief. With over 45mg of cannabinoids per gummy, and at 10 gummies per pack, these Watermelon edibles have everything you need to send you over the moon and back.
Each gummy is loaded with approximately 10mg of hemp-derived Delta 9 THC, 25mg of CBD, and 1 mg of THCP, the recently discovered cannabinoid found to have much higher binding affinity for the CB1 receptor than the most commonly used cannabinoid, Delta 9 THC. As a hemp-derived full spectrum CBD product, it also contains other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC and THCV!
The scrumptious watermelon flavor makes consuming these gummies a delicious treat but beware! It’s recommended that for first-time use, each gummy be cut in half or fourths and taken sparingly as they are extremely potent.
The quick and dirty on these loaded THCP and CBD gummies:
- 10 gummies per pack
- Approximately 1mg of THCP, 25mg of CBD, and 10mg of Delta 9 THC per gummy
- Delicious watermelon taste
- Over 45mg of cannabinoids per gummy
- It’s recommended to start with a half or fourth of a gummy; they’re strong!

What is Delta 9 THC?
Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol is a major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. In its raw form, THC is referred to as THCa and is not psychoactive. The lowercase “a” implies acid. Throughout the curing and drying process of THCa, the acid is eliminated by a decarboxylation process resulting in Delta 9 THC. THC in its decarboxylated form contains psychoactive properties and can result in a mind altering experience.
Delta 9 THC works through attaching to Endocannabinoid system receptors throughout the brain and the Nervous System. Effects may last for a few hours, but is dependent on frequency of use, dosage, body weight and/or cardiac activity level.
Delta 9 is known to be lipophilic, which means that it can readily attach to fat. As D9 THC attaches to fat cells it has the ability to move from the fat cells into the bloodstream and may remain in the body for longer periods of time. D9 can be detected in the body for up to 20 hours after it has been ingested.
The compound Δ9-THC can be legally derived from hemp. In accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill) all derivatives, isomers and/or cannabinoids found in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume Δ9-THC.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of Delta 9 THC will vary by dose and effects will also vary for users. Therefore, do not operate a vehicle after consuming Δ9 products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
What is THCP?
Cannabinoids and THCP Discovery
Phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are the main beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant. Phytocannabinoids are better known as cannabinoids. “Phyto” simply means “derived from plants”. Cannabinoids interact and bind to terpenes and flavonoids. The greatest concentration of cannabinoids are found in the cannabis plant resin or trichomes.
THCP is one of the hundreds of compounds that the cannabis plant produces in their resin filled trichomes. Only you may not have heard of it due to the fact that it has only recently been discovered by an Italian research team in 2019 while analyzing a medicinal cannabis strain named FM2.
Although there are many different cannabinoids, they all mostly have similar structure as they begin life as the same molecule known as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). It is commonly recognized as being the “mother cannabinoid”.
Cannabinoids found in raw cannabis are in their acidic form (THCA, CBDA, CBCA, etc). When contact with heat occurs, cannabinoids undergo a process known as decarboxylation. The reaction to the process results in a change of the cannabinoid from an acidic to non-acidic compound (THC, CBD, CBC, etc).
Without decarboxylation, cannabinoids in acidic form have little to no effect on the body. And this includes THCPA, as it also needs to undergo a heating process to become THCP. Contrary to most other cannabinoids, THCP is found in tiny quantities and is more than likely the reason it has gone undetected until recently.
THCP VS THC
THCP and THC have similar molecular structures. In fact, they are almost identical. Their side alkyl chain is the only thing that sets them apart.
A side alkyl chain is made up of carbon and hydrogen atoms that attach themselves to a molecule.
The alkyl chain in THC consists of 5 carbon atoms, while the alkyl chain in THCP consists of 7 carbon atoms. Researchers believe that the two extra carbon atoms on the side alkyl chain of THCP allows for a much higher potency than THC.
The reason for this is that the longer alkyl chain grants a much faster bind to cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). But it does seem to have a negative effect when the alkyl chain is too long as actions seem to decrease with more than 8 carbon atoms.
THCP Potency and Effects
More studies are being conducted on this newly found cannabinoid THCP. The effects are found to be somewhat identical to Delta 9-THC, but with much more added potency. Researchers believe that THCP is as much as 30 times more potent than THC.
THCP paired with other cannabinoids and terpenes has the potential to produce a substantial amount of pain relief or an effective sleep aid.
Effects will vary throughout energizing, soothing or sedating. If effects are similar then it must be recognized that commonly known THC side-effects may occur as well.
Use of THCP requires careful doses and should be monitored carefully to maximize benefits and diminish side-effects.
Take 1/2 to 1 gummy at a time, wait 3 hours before taking more.
