H4CBD + CBN flower gelato, approx. 20% H4CBD content + 20% CBN + 5% CBD - 2 grams
Our H4CBD + CBN aroma flowers Gelato have a sweet, berry aroma, reminiscent of ice cream and jam. The dried female hemp flowers of the Cannabis Sativa L. variety with a tetrahydrocannabidiol (THD) content of 20% and a cannabinol (CBN) content of 20% as well as 5% CBD and a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of <0.2% are legally available throughout the EU.
H4-CBD, also known as THD or tetrahydrocannabidiol, is hydrogenated CBD, a psychoactive form of CBD that has a similar structure to HHC but lacks features such as a double bond. H4CBD has both R and S diastereomers, with the R diastereomer considered the stronger of the two.
CANVORY cannabis flowers with 20% H4CBD THD + 20% CBN + 5% CBD
Gelato is grown according to in a glass house cultivation facility in Portugal/Spain. Our professional team trims and harvests the flowers by hand. Gelato is grown organically and it is free of pesticides as well as herbicides.
The small to medium hemp flowers have a seed content of <1%, are rich in H4CBD as well as CBN and have a low THC content (<0.2%).
About the production of hydrogenated CBD:
H4CBD is produced by adding hydrogen atoms to CBD molecules. The process of making H4CBD is similar to making margarine in a factory by hydrogenating vegetable oil. Although hydrogenation is not a particularly safe method for food production, there is no reason to believe that it will negatively affect concentrated extracts like H4CBD.
About cannabinol production:
CBN is most commonly found in highly oxidized hemp products as well as aged cannabis plant material. Unlike the other cannabinoids, cannabinol itself does not come from the CBG parent chemical. Instead, it is a degraded byproduct of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA).
This occurs when cannabis plants are exposed to sunlight for an extended period of time until the THCA is converted to CBNA (cannabinolic acid). CBN is thus a decarboxylation (release of carbon dioxide from plants) of CBNA.
Our cannabinol extract is 100% natural. The distillate is obtained from organically grown, certified hemp plants (Cannabis Sativa L.). It is completely free of harmful pesticides & herbicides as well as other harmful substances.
What are the benefits of H4CBD?
One improvement of hydrogenated CBD is that it offers molecular stability, which contributes to heat resistance and shelf life. Unsaturated compounds become saturated with hydrogen during hydrogenation. This is usually done to improve their shelf life and resistance to thermooxidative degradation, which occurs when these compounds are in the presence of air.
But this improved durability is not the key advantage here : H4CBD has a much stronger affinity for the human CB1 receptor than CBD, suggesting a significantly increased potency of its CB1-mediated effects, while retaining CBD's other benefits.
Most of the information we have about the effects of H4CBD comes from a single study. In 2006, a research team led by Shimon Ben-Shabat found that H4CBD - like most cannabinoids - has some anti-inflammatory potential. More importantly, however, this form of CBD appears to interact strongly with CB1 receptors, which CBD itself does not. A 2017 research report referenced Ben-Shabat's study but did not mention any other research on the pharmacology of H4CBD.
To have some degree of certainty about the potential effects of H4CBD, further research needs to be conducted. However, there is preliminary evidence that generally confirms the effects of H4CBD suspected by researchers. This cannabinoid appears to have a similar effect on users as CBD, but with a significantly higher psychoactivity.
What are the effects of cannabinol?
Cannabinol (CBN) is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid, so psychoactive effects are present to some degree with CBN. However, if you are using CBN oil to combat your ailments, you will likely feel little. CBN is nowhere near as potent as THC. However, only a very small dose of CBN is needed to feel a strong sedative effect. According to Steep Hill, CBN exhibits the strongest sedative effects among all cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. Steep Hill is a company involved in hemp testing and research.
Steep Hill scientists have found that CBN can produce its sedative effects at a very small dose of 2.5 mg. They have even compared CBN to diazepam and found that 2.5 mg of CBN has similar sedative effects to 5 mg of diazepam.
It is also described that CBN may have antibacterial effects if used properly. In 2008, Italian researchers reported that with three other cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBG), CBN may also have antibacterial effects against dangerous multi-drug resistant MRSA germs.
Some of the more notable effects of CBN on the human body are said to be:
- Sedative to aid sleep
- Increased bone density over time
- Increased skin health and burn treatment
- Pain relief
Does H4CBD (THD) get you high?
The claim that H4CBD is 100 times more potent than CBD is grossly oversimplified. H4CBD is not as potent as CBD - by stimulating CB1 receptors, it is potent in a way that CBD is not. Like THC, THD also gives many people a pleasant, euphoric feeling when ingested. But exactly what that feeling is may not be so easily determined. At least for now. Some people report similar effects to conventional THC products. Hydrogenated CBD, or tetrahydrocannabidiol, is considered an alternative to hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) according to many opinions.
What is the difference between H4CBD and CBD?
H4CBD differs from CBD in that it is technically produced synthetically. Hydrogenation is considered one of the simpler forms of synthesis, but because its chemical structure has been altered to accommodate more hydrogen components, H4CBD can no longer be considered a purely natural cannabinoid.
CBD and H4CBD also seem to differ in terms of their effects. One of the advantages of CBD is that it is non-intoxicating while still providing many of the benefits associated with cannabis. H4CBD seems to veer on the non-intoxicating side of the spectrum, but only by a razor-thin margin.
H4CBD isn't exactly THC, but it isn't CBD either. In this respect, H4CBD is similar to many of the THC alternatives that have hit the market recently, but in this case, it is a CBD alternative. Since cannabinoids aren't all that different from one another chemically, it was inevitable that repeated tinkering would produce options that covered the full spectrum of psychoactivity.
When was H4CBD discovered?
H4CBD was discovered in 1940 as part of the efforts of the Todd Group, a pioneering group of cannabis researchers responsible for identifying dozens of cannabinoids and synthesizing dozens more. In the early days, H4CBD was produced by catalyzing CBD with a metal alloy, but safer processes are generally used in today's H4CBD products.
