What is 8,9-Dihydroxy-delta-6a-tetrahydrocannabinol?

8,9-dihydroxy-delta-6a-tetrahydrocannabinol is part of the Cannabitriol cannabinoid class. It is a compound that researchers have newly discovered in cannabis. It is known simply as 8-Β-hydroxy-Δ-9-thc.

8,9-dihydroxy-delta-6a-tetrahydrocannabinol is a Cannabitriol and a component of tetrahydrocannabinol. Until now, science had little knowledge about this compound. A leading cause of this is the ban on cannabis and its products in most of the world.

However, due to the recent awakening of research and the foreseeable benefits of cannabinoids, many constituents of cannabis are now subject to research, and scientists have discovered new compounds.

8, 9-Dihydroxy-delta-6a-tetrahydrocannabinol together with other cannabitriols have been known since as far back as 1966, but due to bans on the purchase and use of these compounds, research work has been tedious and limited.

There was a breakthrough in 2014 when a Jamaican researcher was able to isolate the parent cannabitriol compound during research and name other subcomponents of cannabitriols.
