What is H4CBD?

Fresh news on the cannabinoid market. That's exactly how H4CBD could be defined. If you are hearing about him for the first time, there is nothing to be surprised about. Eighty8 is one of the first companies that began to deal with the production of products with another useful cannabinoid and its use. But what does H4CBD actually mean?


What is H4CBD?

H4CBD, full name 4-ethyl-4-hydroxy-2-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-6-phenylhex-2-en-1-yl cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid compound that belongs to the group of cannabinoids derived from Cannabis sativa . Like it's better-known sibling cannabidiol (CBD), H4CBD is psychoactive-free, meaning it doesn't produce the intoxicating effect and "high" of THC-rich cannabis.

Difference between HHC and H4CBD

H4CBD is created by the same process, but it is derived from hemp, where CBD predominates. Even so, it is difficult to talk in detail about its long-term effects. However, experienced users compare consumption – whether in the form of vaporization or smoking dry – to the use of any CBD:THC product in a 2:1 ratio.

This means that you can expect therapeutic effects spiced with a slight euphoria. This combination is a great attraction for those users who focus on mental health, but at the same time do not neglect physical health. H4CBD can thus come closest to extremely strong CBD with a small addition of THC.

Difference between CBD and H4CBD

There are significant differences between the two cannabinoids. For example, these compounds have a completely different chemical structure and H4CBD has a fundamentally different effect and effects on the body than what users expect from CBD.

CBD simply relaxes you without any feeling of intoxication, whereas when you take H4CBD, you feel similar to adding a pinch of THC to CBD. Otherwise, these cannabinoids are quite similar, even though they come from very different sources.

Effects of H4CBD

The potency of H4CBD is clearly one of the biggest differences from the CBD it is based on. Nevertheless, very mild psychoactive effects can occur, which you will not find with pure CBD in any case. It has a more pronounced effect on CB1 neuroreceptors, since pure CBD usually has no effect on these receptors.

Potential health benefits if H4CBD

H4CBD has shown promise as a pain reliever. It has an unquestionable potential to act as an analgesic and can be effective in reducing pain in patients suffering from chronic pain.

Antioxidant properties

H4CBD has antioxidant effects, which means it can help protect the body's cells from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidant properties can play an important role in preventing oxidative stress and many related diseases.

Anti-inflammatory effects

Inflammation is a key component of many diseases, including autoimmune diseases and degenerative joint diseases. Some early research suggests that H4CBD may have anti-inflammatory effects, meaning it could help reduce inflammation and related symptoms.

Possible support for mental health

Cannabinoids, including H4CBD, have the potential to promote mental health and reduce anxiety and stress. This could have important implications for those suffering from various mental disorders.


CBD is a known variable, while H4CBD remains a wild card. In general, a lot of manipulation is required to make a synthetic cannabinoid dangerous, and hydrogenation is one of the simplest and least demanding forms of chemical synthesis. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that H4CBD is harmful.


There is no significant difference in legality between CBD and H4CBD. Since the onset of the delta 8 boom, manufacturers have been concerned that altered cannabinoids could be considered illegal products. but delta 9 THC appears to remain the only cannabinoid targeted by the Controlled Substances Act.

As a result, H4CBD should most likely be viewed as industrial hemp, allowing it to be sold online.
