2 min read

In recent years, you can’t miss CBD: this cannabinoid has spread widely around the world to become the wellness ally of many consumers. While the craze around CBD products continues to grow, a new cannabinoid is appearing and could well compete with CBD! It is H4CBD, still little known in France and Europe. You are a fan of products derived from hemp and you are intrigued by this cannabidiol of synthesis? We reveal you all on the H4CBD.

A SYNTHETICALLY PRODUCED CBD DERIVATIVE

H4CBD is produced from the hydrogenation of a CBD molecule. This synthesis process is frequently used in the pharmaceutical and food industry. It consists in adding hydrogen atoms to a molecule, so as to modify its effects and its interactions.

In the case of H4CBD, scientists have added 4 hydrogen atoms to the CBD molecule. H4CBD is therefore similar to a synthetic cannabidiol. Contrary to CBD, it is not naturally present in the trichomes of hemp flowers.

Its discovery dates back to the 1940s, in the context of medical research. However, it is now beginning to be democratized among the general public and is integrated into wellness products, in the same way as CBD, HHC, etc.
