Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Tetrahydrocannabinol-C4, also known as THC-C4 and butyl-THC, is a homologue of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active component of Cannabis. They are only different by the pentyl sidechain being replaced by a butyl sidechain. It is unknown whether THC-C4 is an agonist, partial agonist, or antagonist at the cannabinoid receptors. The propyl anolog, THCV is a known antagonist while THC itself is an agonist. THC-C4 has rarely been isolated from cannabis samples,[1] but appears to be less commonly present than THC or THCV. It is metabolised in a similar manner to THC.[2] Similarly to THC, it has 7 double bond isomers and 30 stereoisomers.

It is not scheduled by Convention on Psychotropic Substances.
