The Hazard of ‘Legal’ THC

The Hazard of ‘Legal’ THC

As long as real cannabis is banned in many places, producers will look for loopholes in (drug) legislation. In recent years, various forms of what is called ‘legal THC’ have become popular. However, that’s not good, says Peter Vermeul, who has been making full-spectrum organic cannabis extracts for 40 years. Not for the (often ignorant) consumer and not for the legal cannabis industry worldwide. It could cause the demise of the cannabis industry.

“The danger of “legal” THC – by Peter Vermeul, owner of CBD Spain and has specialized in making cannabis extracts for decades – he wrote. The reason is the (commercial) hype surrounding so-called “legal THC products”, which often means a product containing synthetic cannabinoids. And that is exactly the sore point Peter wants to expose.

Alternatives to the -banned- cannabinoid THC.

HHC, H4CBD, THC-P, Delta 8, Delta 10, Delta 11, THC-O, etc. Terms we commonly see, but what kind of cannabinoids are they really and what does it mean for the user? This coin details about it – made by the Cannabis Industry Association of California – with the revealing title ‘THE PANDORA BOX The dangers of an unregulated domestic market for hemp-derived intoxicating cannabinoids.‘, you really should read it.

Unfortunately, the ‘cannabinoids’ mentioned above are products that are produced 100% synthetically. This happens because of legal provisions. in THC delta 9, which is responsible for the high (high) of marijuana and thus being able to sell a “legal” THC.

It is even so strange that, for example, THCP – which is 30 times stronger than regular THC – is “legal” according to producers, with all the consequences that entails. Most of these newcomers on the cannabinoid front are found naturally in the plant, but only in very small quantities. And that is why it is absolutely not profitable to extract them from the plant: these extracts would easily cost at least 300,000 euros per kilo!

The emergence

After the cultivation of industrial hemp was federally liberalized in the United States – in the now infamous Farm Bill 2018 – The Americans have focused en masse on CBD production. The result was a huge overproduction, which of course also led to a huge drop in prices.

In 2016, a kilo of CBD isolate still cost $48,000, but the price per kilo has now dropped below $200 (!). This makes the production of CBD isolate no longer profitable, and thus paved the way for the conversion of this CBD into synthetic cannabinoids such as HHC, Delta 8, THC-P, etc.

Through a loophole, some clever types could easily convert unprofitable CBD into products that resemble THC, and these would be “legal”. It is expected that in the near future Farm Bill 2023 these gaps are closing.

The synthetic production process of Delta-8, THC, HHC, THC-P, THC-O, etc. is done by converting the CBD in the hemp fiber to THC and from there the other cannabinoids with chemicals such as organic solvents, heavy metals and strong acids….

Safety, purity and strength not guaranteed.

The biggest risk of these unqualified and even kitchen-table produced cannabinoids is that they are unregulated. This means that safety, purity, and strength cannot be guaranteed. Unfortunately, when using THC-O Already to mourn the first deaths.

These developments are very detrimental to true cannabis enthusiasts and medical cannabis patients. It adds fuel to the fire of political and social opponents, and will possibly result in a total ban.

Fortunately, several synthetic cannabinoids such as HHC and Delta 8 are in. already banned in several countries. Let us hope that soon the only cannabis will be legalized and the production of all synthetically produced cannabinoids will be banned.
