What are H4CBD and CBD?

CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a chemical component found in hemp, more commonly known as the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, and therefore cannabis, it is devoid of psychoactive and addictive effects. CBD is the result of a purification process that cleanses cannabis of components such as THC, rendering it harmless.

CBD is very popular and recognized for its many benefits. Whether for relaxation, sleep or pain relief, CBD is widely consumed for its therapeutic effects. H4CBD is even less developed than CBD, which can be consumed in almost any form.

H4CBD, also known as hexahydrocannabidiol, is a CBD derivative enriched with four hydrogen atoms. Simply put, it's a laboratory-synthesized version of CBD. H4CBD is not found naturally in the hemp plant, as it is derived from a chemical process. Discovered in the 1940s, it has been little studied and is only now resurfacing. Yet it is the result of medical research aimed at improving CBD. In fact, H4CBD is more stable and balanced than CBD, and is known to have more intense effects than CBD.

H4CBD is becoming increasingly popular. Even if its effects, particularly undesirable ones, are still poorly understood, it is nonetheless recognized for its benefits, which are said to be preferable to those of CBD.

But what are the effects of CBD and H4CBD? And how are they different?

H4CBD vs CBD effects: what are the differences?

Although CBD and H4CBD are not recognized as drugs, their popularity makes us wonder about their benefits. First of all, what are their effects?

CBD is a natural relaxant. It acts as an anti-stress agent, allowing consumers to relax. If you're prone to stress or anxiety, CBD may be just the remedy you need. CBD is recognized as an analgesic. In other words, it has pain-relieving properties. In particular, it soothes headaches, joint pain, inflammation and menstrual pain.

Secondly, it soothes sleep disorders. CBD is considered a natural sleep aid, helping you to fall asleep and enjoy a peaceful night's sleep thanks to its relaxing properties. It also has powerful neurological effects, capable of relieving seizures and epilepsy, for example. Both physically and mentally, CBD is considered a remedy for many ailments.

Derived from CBD, H4CBD is thought to have the same benefits as CBD (pain relief, improved sleep, relaxation...). However, H4CBD was created as an enhancement to CBD. As such, its effects are far more intense and powerful. Unlike CBD, H4CBD affects CB1 receptors in the central nervous system. These receptors are linked to feelings of well-being, emotional state and pain. As a result, H4CBD has a broader action than CBD in our bodies.

However, we must remain cautious about using H4CBD. As it has not yet been fully studied, we still don't know everything about its benefits and side effects.

Comparing the side effects of H4CB and CBD

Although CBD has many benefits, it is possible to experience side effects after consumption, particularly when the amount taken is too high compared to recommendations, or the product is not of high quality. Common side effects include dry mouth, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness, tremors, migraines and loss of appetite. So, in all cases, you need to check the origin and quality of the products you consume, as well as your supplier, whether for CBD or H4CBD.

H4CBD is also reputed to offer more intense effects than CBD, but potentially stronger side effects too. The side effects are the same as for CBD, and are generally mild and short-lived. However, if you remain reasonable in your consumption and follow the recommendations, these side effects are unlikely to affect you.

H4CBD vs CBD: what form should they take?

Cannabidiol can be consumed in various forms. You can eat the flower or the resin extracted from the pollen of CBD flowers. It can also be vaped using CBD cartridges or e-liquid, and the vape pen. You can also opt for the edible option by enjoying CBD candies or infusing it in herbal teas and infusions. You can also consume CBD in capsule form, like a conventional medicine. We offer a range ofCBD oils to be poured under your tongue, added to your dishes or massaged into your skin. We also sell CBD crystals, which you can put in your meals, mix with natural oils, add to e-liquid, vaporize, infuse... You can also choose CBD wax, which is consumed by inhalation (dabbing) thanks to a whole range of equipment and dab tools. You can also mix it with a drink or meal. CBD is also used as a cosmetic, recognized for its soothing and moisturizing properties. Finally, you can find a range ofCBD oils for your pets, who can also enjoy the benefits of CBD.

Like CBD, H4CBD can be consumed in a variety of ways. The most common are resins, oils, cartridges for vaping, or candy for a sweet treat.

No matter how you consume CBD or H4CBD, the most important thing is to use them sensibly, but also to pay attention to the origin of the products you buy to consume. In fact, you need to check that your product complies with legislation, such as THC levels below 0.3% in France. You should also take care to choose a quality supplier, such as Pure Extract CBD, which offers certified, laboratory-tested products, so you can be sure you're getting quality items, well purified of any toxic or addictive substances.

Legal differences between H4CBD and CBD

Before the products themselves, the legal differences are first and foremost geographical. Legislation concerning CBD and H4CBD differs widely depending on the country you're in.

For CBD, the legal limit is often the THC content of the product. In Switzerland, this limit is 1%, in France 0.3%. CBD consumption is decriminalized in some countries, such as Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and others. It is authorized for therapeutic use in most European countries. In Europe, no country bans CBD altogether. Representing 30% of the global market, the CBD market in Europe is very active, due to Europeans' strong demand for cannabidiol. As a result, CBD consumption is widely accepted in Europe, often with limited THC content.

Legislation for H4CBD is more complicated. In France, for example, the law is silent. As no decision has yet been taken, H4CBD consumption is authorized for the time being. Given that it is very similar to CBD, both in terms of effects and methods of consumption, we can assume that it won't be banned, but we can't say with any certainty today. Beyond France, no European country has yet banned the consumption of H4CBD. While HHC has been banned in some European countries, such as France, as you can read in our article on the subject, there's nothing to say that this will be the case for H4CBD, which is not addictive, unlike HHC. It goes without saying that H4CBD is currently tolerated under the same conditions as CBD, i.e. with a low THC content in certain countries.

As H4CBD is closely related to CBD, it is banned in countries that prohibit cannabidiol, but is not currently prohibited in countries that allow it. However, it remains unclear whether it will be authorized in all countries. We can't yet predict whether it will be authorized or banned in certain countries, but we can assume that it won't be, given that it has no psychoactive or addictive effects.

Which molecule to choose between H4CBD and CBD?

A synthetic version of CBD produced in the laboratory, H4CBD is arguably the molecule to prefer. Indeed, H4CBD was born of experiments to improve CBD. The aim was to make it more stable and its effects more powerful. Indeed, since CBD is renowned for its benefits, the research that led to H4CBD sought to develop the molecule's full potential. And with good reason! With promising results, H4CBD is considered to be an improved version of CBD: a more stable and balanced version, whose effects are enhanced tenfold. So, H4CBD seems to be the molecule to prioritize, with benefits superior to those of CBD.

However, we must remain cautious with this molecule. No long-term studies have been carried out on H4CBD, so little is known about this molecule and its long-term effects. Side effects can be more intense than those of CBD, which are virtually non-existent. Although these side effects are generally not serious, they can nevertheless have an impact on our daily lives (drowsiness, nausea, lack of concentration...).

But don't worry, H4CBD, like CBD, is neither psychoactive nor addictive.
Our advice is to start with CBD, and pay close attention to the effects it has on your body before increasing your intake or consuming H4CBD.

We also advise against taking H4CBD if you are undergoing parallel medical treatment, or if you are pregnant. If in doubt, ask your health care professional.
