What is PHC?

Everything You Should Know About This New Cannabinoid:

If you think there is only CBD and THC found in cannabis, it’s time for an update! Welcome PHC, the newest addition to the extended cannabinoid family.

PHC, or by its scientific name hydrox4phc, is a close relative of the famous Delta-9 THC. In practical terms, this means two things: PHC will give you an incredible high, very similar to THC. It is also currently legal in all 50 states.

Currently, you can buy PHC products here at Dragon’s Breath Smoke Shop. Being a relatively new cannabinoid, it’s better to buy quality products from trusted companies like Torch, so you can be certain of what you’re consuming and what they promise you.

In fact, Torch is one of the first brands to have PHC products that are extremely potent, pleasant, and above all – the best of quality. Learn more about PHC and Torch’s powerful options below.


What is PHC?

We already mentioned that PHC is fairly new, which means that even the amount of information available about it is pretty limited, to say the least. 

What we do know is that PHC is a synthetic cannabinoid derived from delta-9 acetate that is manufactured by a unique process that allows the acetate molecule to be metabolized once it enters the body. PHC, once consumed, is practically 99% THC.

Also, neing synthetic doesn’t mean that it is a chemical compound cooked up in the lab; it only means that scientists use a special extraction process to produce it from naturally occurring cannabinoids. Once PHC enters your system, it immediately becomes THC.

PHC is also becoming quite famous for its potency and long-lasting effects, which can even last up to 8 hours; can someone say fun?

So start small, start easy, and establish your tolerance with this new friend before dosing to your heart’s content.

How Does PHC Compare To THC?

Perhaps at this point, we have already made a spoiler. As we mentioned before, PHC is made so that once metabolized, it acts in the body similarly to THC.

It is essential to consider that this is a new cannabinoid, so there isn’t much verifiable information on the effects and potency of PHC.

We know from anecdotal experiences of users who have already gotten their hands on PHC products and report that its effects and potency are similar to Delta-9 THC.

As for dosage, there is still no real standard. A logical guide would infer that the number of milligrams that counts as a standard dose is the same as Delta-9 THC, given the similarities the two cannabinoids have. But since there is nothing standardized and PHC is quite potent, it is always best to start small.

The issue of legality also separates these cannabinoids, but we will talk about that later.

Effects And Benefits of PHC

The effects of PHC are still anecdotal among those who have consumed it. But everything points in the same direction: the high of PHC is the same as it would be after taking a THC edible.

The effects are long, very long-lasting, and can be pretty potent. So caution is advised when consuming it.

When consuming PHC, you can expect intense happiness in both mind and body, offering especially a euphoric but calming release of tension in the body. Some of the most reported effects are:

  • Strong mental and bodily experience
  • Chilled
  • Relaxed
  • Happy
  • Anxiolytic properties
  • Relief

If PHC’s high could be summed up in one word, it would be euphoria. People describe a feeling of joy stronger than they have experienced with any other cannabinoid.

Can You Overdose On PHC?

Cannabinoids are classified as non-toxic to the human body because the body’s endocannabinoid system can help us tolerate high doses of cannabinoids. But no one wants a bad trip.

Taking too much PHC, like any other psychoactive compound, can cause intense side effects that are not life threatening, but can be very unpleasant.

Watching the dosage you consume will make the experience enjoyable from start to finish. Some of the not-so-fun side effects may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Anxiety/Paranoia
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry mouth
  • Confusion
  • Lack of physical coordination
  • Lack of memory
  • Low blood pressure


What is PHC Live Resin?

As a newbie or a pro, you must have heard about all kinds of cannabis products, including flowers and vapes, tinctures, and more. But what about live resin?

First, let’s explain what live resin is.

Live resin is a form of cannabis concentrate extracted from fresh cannabis plants. It is popular with consumers because it retains the flavors, terpenes, and aromas of the cannabis plant better than other forms of concentrates, and by extention, it is potent and flavorful.

Live resin has a texture that feels like a cross between wax and sauce. It is made from fresh, frozen cannabis; the plants are harvested and frozen immediately before they lose their flavor.

The plants are kept frozen throughout the live resin extraction process as the usual process of drying, cutting, and trimming cannabis plants can deplete the plant’s flavor and terpene profile, leading to a loss of quality.

PHC live resin is cannabis resin that contains an abundant amount of PHC. Combining potent PHC with an extraction process that leaves all the compounds of the cannabis plant intact results in a very potent concentrate.

Will PHC Make Me Fail A Drug Test?

As a rule of thumb, if a cannabinoid is psychoactive, it is likely to show up on a drug test.

PHC is a very potent cannabinoid with great psychoactivity, not to mention it does turn into THC in your body… so if you have a drug test coming up, it’s best to ditch the PHC.
