New cannabis compound 30 times more potent than THC found in one marijuana variety

The compound is one of two newfound cannabinoids that have been discovered in the cannabis plant glands of the sativa L species. One looks similar to the compound CBD. The THC lookalike is called tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP). Research by University of Modena & Reggio Emilia suggests that it interacts with the same brain receptor as THC but differs in its chain of atoms.
