Marijuana contains many chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. So far over 60 cannabinoids have been identified by researchers and it is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that is considered the one to create a “high” effect.

Researchers from Italy claim to have discovered two new cannabinoids, and one is 30 times more potent than THC.

The team’s study was recently published in the journal Scientific Reports and states that the new cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) and cannabidiphorol (CBDP), which they discovered using a combination of liquid chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry.

Using tests on mice, the researchers found that a dose of THCP was as active as a larger dose of THC, leading to the claim of its elevated potency.
