CBD is nothing new anymore, most people know the cannabinoid and even use it with enthusiasm. However, with H4CBD, a new derivative has now made a name for itself that has some differences to the previously known cannabinoids. According to testimonials, H4CBD works similarly to classic CBD and yet there are some differences. Here you can learn about the specifics of H4CBD and everything you need to know about it.
What is the special feature of H4CBD?
H4CBD and classic CBD come from the cannabis plant and are therefore considered natural products. The big difference is that CBD can be extracted directly from cannabis, but H4CBD cannot. It is obtained through the process of hydrogenation by adding hydrogen atoms to the original CBD molecule. Thus, according to the declaration, H4CBD belongs to the semi-synthetic cannabinoids, whose effect is compared to HHC (another cannabinoid). However, the origin is and remains the hemp plant, even if hydrogenated CBD still has to go through a manufacturing process.
What effect does H4CBD have?
Structurally, H4CBD is most comparable to CBD and HHC, but its effect differs somewhat. It is known that THC with its psychoactive effect primarily interacts with the CB1 receptors, while CBD has an influence on the CB2 receptors. Initial results on the effects of H4CBD show that it can interact with both CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. This helps to explain why this form of CBD has a stronger effect than the natural derivative.
Are there any testimonials from users about H4CBD?
Since H4CBD has not been on the market for long, it has by far not as many fans as its big brother CBD. However, initial testimonials suggest that H4CBD seems to be the perfect balance between HHC and CBD. For example, users report that they find the duration and type of effect of HHC too intense, but CBD brings too little. It is precisely those users who discover H4CBD for themselves and appreciate its properties.
There is even less experience in the form of studies. In most cases, research does not take long to take a closer look at new substances. Today, it is considered proven that CBD can provide relief from pain, inflammation and also mental illness, among other things. If we now assume that H4CBD is more potent than the parent product cannabidiol, the positive effects could potentially be enhanced!
Is H4CBD legal or banned?
Currently, there is no ban on H4-CBD on the market, which is easy to explain. Prohibitions are stated in the Narcotics Act (BtMG) on the one hand and in the New Psychoactive Substances Act (NpSG) on the other. Neither one nor the other category currently includes H4CBD, and thus it is considered legal on the market. However, it is not clear whether there may be a change in the law and a ban on H4CBD in the future.
Does H4CBD get you high?
Although H4CBD can make connections to CB1 and CB2 receptors, it is not expected to have a psychoactive effect, according to various tests. Users report that while the high effect is not comparable to classic cannabis, the effect feels a bit stronger than high-CBD products. One article reported that synthetic CBD derivatives can bind more strongly to receptors in the brain, which again speaks for the stronger effect on the body.
Can H4CBD have side effects?
Since H4CBD is still very little known in this country, information is also thin on the ground. Even from other countries only a few reports come together. So far, however, it looks like the properties of CBD also apply to H4CBD. For side effects, this would mean that they can occur, but are usually less pronounced than when using THC.
CBD itself is known to have few side effects. Primarily, problems such as dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, and mild fatigue occur at high doses of beginners. When the cannabidiol is used in lower doses, these effects are reduced.
Since H4CBD is supposed to have a stronger potency than CBD, correspondingly more intense side effects must be expected. Again, there will probably be a connection to the dosage. Users who have not yet had any experience with CBD might react more strongly to H4CBD than those whose bodies have been in contact with CBD for a long time.
Can H4CBD and CBD be used together?
Theoretically, there is nothing against using H4CBD and CBD products together. However, users should not expect any particular advantage from this. According to reports, H4CBD has about a multiple potency of classic CBD. As a result, it can bring enhanced relaxation, pain reduction and other typical effects. Those who now combine the highly potent H4CBD with classic CBD are unlikely to increase its effectiveness further as a result. However, since it is a derivative and not a competitor product in the classical sense, hydrogenated CBD should not trigger any interactions when combined with CBD.
Conclusion: H4CBD a possible alternative or supplement to CBD
So far, there are few results regarding how the semi-synthetic cannabinoid H4CBD is accepted. However, corresponding products will probably conquer the market in the future and as long as H4CBD is legally available, there will be users. In fact, the cannabinoid could be a supplement or even alternative for those individuals who use a large amount of CBD. Even those who are positive about the effects of HHC but perceive them as too intense could benefit.
However, whether the use of H4CBD in medical treatment will occur is questionable. Although there are initial study results on the effectiveness of CBD for pain, inflammation and other conditions, the compound is still not officially prescribed. We will definitely inform you here when there is new information about H4CBD and its development on the market!
