What is H4CBD?

This article will provide a simplified overview of H4CBD. Although information concerning this new cannabinoid is still being collected, we can tell you what has been learned to date. With this information, you will be better able to decide if H4CBD may benefit you

The world of legal cannabinoids is expanding at an exponential rate these days. The trend began as soon as the federal government legalized hemp. This one action opened wide the doors of research into the many cannabinoids produced by the hemp plant. New cannabinoids are being discovered (the numbers vary wildly from between 60 and 140 different compounds) while others are synthesized from existing hemp compounds like CBD. The latest synthesized cannabinoid to be developed is H4CBD. The next two obvious questions you will likely ask are: “What is H4CBD and should you consume it?”

What is H4CBD?

Unlike CBD, H4CBD interacts with the CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system. While more research is necessary to more accurately pinpoint the potential effects of consuming H4CBD, initial anecdotal evidence is encouraging. 

Many consumers claim H4CBD delivers milder psychoactive effects than Delta 8 THC or HHC. The general experience of many users is one of increased energy. Some have likened it to caffeine without the accompanying shakes. Others appreciate its seeming ability to suppress appetite urges, leading to noticeable weight loss!

As with most cannabinoids, we suggest you try it yourself to learn how your own endocannabinoid system responds to it.

H4CBD Consumption Methods

If you have never worked with our Distillate, be forewarned that it has a high viscosity. This means that at room temperature it is too thick and sticky to express out of the tip of the syringe.

Fortunately, the solution is simple and easy: merely warm up the syringe in hot water for about a minute and you will find the distillate will freely flow as you press the syringe.

The most popular ways to consume H4CBD Distillate include:

  • Cooking/Baking
  • Orally
  • Sublingually
  • Smoke/Vape


Technically, H4CBD is still CBD but due to the synthetic nature of H4CBD you should not expect similar effects and results. If you are seeking a stronger CBD effect, it is recommended that you simply consume a larger dosage.

Lab reports typically identify this compound as tetrahydrocannibidiol (THD). When analyzed in a lab, two key numbers are captured: R and S diastereomers. Both compounds have psychoactive properties but the R diastereomer seems to carry more impact.

Current Federal laws allow products to be derived from CBD. This is why Delta 8 THC and HHC are legal, even though they generate psychoactive effects. Because H4CBD is produced by hydrogenating CBD, it is also derived from that cannabinoid and is therefore protected by the 2018 Farm Bill.

Because state laws vary widely and change often, we recommend you become familiar with laws and regulations concerning hemp-derived products containing psychoactive properties.

H4CBD & Drug Tests

It’s important to understand that the consumption of any cannabinoid can result in a failed drug test. However, drug tests can be designed to detect the presence of various cannabinoids in the body, depending on the specific test and the purpose of the test. For example, some drug tests may be designed to detect only THC or its metabolites, while others may be designed to detect a wider range of cannabinoids. It’s important to note that the sensitivity and specificity of drug tests can vary, and false positive results can occur due to cross-reactivity with other substances.

We advice consumers to exercise the same caution with H4CBD as you would with any cannabinoid.

How Can I Experience H4CBD?

If you have already experienced Delta 8 THC and/or HHC, you are familiar with the psychoactive effects of these two legal cannabinoids. Most consumers of H4CBD consider it to be much lighter in effects than Delta 8 THC or HHC.
