A cannabis compound has been found to be potentially 30 times more powerful than THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the plant’s main psychoactive constituent.
A study, published in academic journal Scientific Reports, involved giving a fairly low dose of the newly unearthed compound, known as THCP (tetrahydrocannabiphorol), to lab mice.
These mice responded less strongly to painful stimuli and also behaved like they had consumed THC, moving around leisurely.
Italian scientists have not tested THCP on humans, so it is yet to be established if the new cannabinoid will get users high.
