Cannabinoids Background: What is THCp?

Mellow Fellow’s beloved Picasso’s Euphoria blend is expertly curated by in-house PhD Chemists. With years of science-backed research and experience, we’ve combined HHC, Delta 8, PHC, CBD, CBG, and THCp to achieve the feeling of Euphoria. This blend’s many admirers especially enjoy it in the Green Crack strain. If you’re new to the world of cannabinoids firstly, welcome. You likely have some questions like: What is delta 8? Or What is HHC? Here, we’ll go over another common question we get: What is THCp? 

THCp, or Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabiphoral, is the supercharged version of standard THC (Delta-9). It is a natural cannabinoid and an analog of THC present in hemp and cannabis plants. THCp’s chemical structure is very similar to THC; however it has a longer chain of atoms. With its seven-carbon atom side chain giving it an extra kick compared to THC's five atoms, this cannabinoid binds more readily with human CB receptors than THC alone. This means that euphoric effects and benefits like relief from pain and insomnia, could likely be more pronounced. This is why THCp perfectly complements the other cannabinoids used in Picasso’s Euphoria blend. 

Cannabinoid Blends

On their own, cannabinoids like Delta 8, Delta 10, HHC and THCp can provide various benefits and effects like relief from anxiety, pain, and insomnia. Though great individually, research has found that certain combinations of these compounds can provide even more astounding effects. This is due to the entourage effect, a phenomenon where several different compounds work together to achieve a greater effect that would be impossible for them to achieve on their own. It’s similar to how the single notes of a song’s melody can sound great on their own. But once accompanied by layers of notes, or chords, the music acquires a depth that the melody isn’t able to achieve by itself.

Given that Mellow Fellow is a trusted source of hemp-derived products, our in-house PhD Chemists have been hard at work to bring you tailor-made experiences with each of our blends. Aside from feeling blissful joy with Picasso’s Euphoria blend, you can also clear up the fog with DaVinci’s Clarity blend, or get some extra juice in your tank with Basquiat’s Motivation blend.

Who Is Picasso?

"When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk you'll end up as the pope,' Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso." 

Pablo Picasso was arguably the most influential and diverse artist of all time. He was born in Málaga, Spain, on October 25, 1881. His full name, which honors a variety of relatives and saints, is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso. Try saying that 3 times fast without getting tongue-tied. Legend has it that Picasso showed signs of being an art prodigy even as a child. His first words were allegedly "piz, piz," his childish attempt at saying "lápiz," the Spanish word for pencil. At an early age, he first learned how to draw from his father, Don José Ruiz Blasco, who was a painter and art teacher. Picasso’s natural talent was so advanced that by the time he was 13, his skill level had surpassed his father’s.

In 1895, at just 14 years old, Picasso’s family moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he applied to the prestigious School of Fine Arts. He didn’t meet the age requirement at the time, but his entrance exam was so extraordinary that they made an exception and accepted him. In 1897, a 16-year-old Picasso moved to Madrid and attended the Royal Academy of San Fernando. However, he quickly became frustrated with his school's singular focus on classical subjects and techniques and stopped attending classes. Picasso would then go on to spend most of his adult life in France, where he’d experiment with various art styles and mediums.

Picasso’s Early Art Periods

Picasso once said “Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” This is shown in his artworks, which are divided by time periods where he expressed complex themes and feelings. Picasso’s early work was categorized into the following four periods:

The Blue Period (1901-1904)

The Blue Period consisted of somber paintings in shades of blue and blue-green. During this period, he painted scenes of poverty, isolation and anguish.

The Rose Period (1905-1907)

The Rose Period is characterized by a more cheery palette of orange and pink colors, featuring many circus people such as acrobats and harlequins. The harlequin, depicted in checkered patterned clothing, became a personal symbol for Picasso himself. 

The African-influenced Period (1908-1909) 

The African-influenced Period took elements from traditional African sculpture,

Cubism (1909-1919) 

The Cubism period is where objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form.

Picasso’s Art

Although he is arguably one of the most famous artists, Picasso’s life wasn’t nearly as glamorous as one might assume. He also experienced poverty and hardships to such extremes that he had to burn his own art to keep warm during the cold Parisian nights. He was also no stranger to tragedy and grief. At 14 years old, his 7 year old sister died from ​​diphtheria. He also experienced losing his close friend, Casagemas as a young adult. It was Casagemas’s death that pushed Picasso into a depression. Artistically, it sparked the beginning of The Blue Period. Throughout his life he witnessed poverty and its damaging effect on society around him. During this period, he focused on themes surrounding human suffering, friendship, and mental illness. Picasso painted in a cold, monochromatic blue palette, to evoke the melancholy anguish he witnessed around him and experienced himself. 

Although he depicted his emotions in dreary colors and subjects, many consider the artwork that he created as some of his deepest and most moving paintings. Perhaps what makes his Blue Period artwork so beloved and relatable is that we’ve all experienced “blue periods” at one point or another. It is, after all, part of the human condition. We can recognize in Picasso’s work a search for light in the darkness. We can see him wrestling with sorrow, and turning it into something beautiful. Picasso's journey from the dreary tones of The Blue Period to the vibrant hues of The Rose Period teaches us an important lesson: no matter how dark things seem, there is always hope that brighter days will come again. He even went on to pioneer a revolutionary new art form known as Cubism that turned the art world on its head.

Picasso’s Connection to Mellow Fellow’s Picasso Euphoria Blend

Picasso's unique ability to process his intense emotions and emerge with a new perspective on life makes him the perfect embodiment of our Picasso's Euphoria Blend. Throughout much of his life, Picasso struggled with depression and grief, often using his artwork as a means to express these feelings. However, rather than allowing it to consume him, he used it as a form of self-expression and healing - finding solace in his paintings and becoming lighter as a result. 

During The Blue Period he delved into the depths of his emotions with dramatic works like The Old Guitarist (1903), which depicted the miseries of the poor, the ill, and those cast out of society, before emerging victorious in happier works that showed greater hope and joy like The Three Musicians (1921), which conveyed feelings of camaraderie between its subjects. In this way, Picasso serves as an example for how we too can overcome difficult times in our lives by embracing them instead of avoiding them, and coming out better for it. Over time, his work became more and more expressive. He made his sculptures larger and his paintings more colorful and kept creating art up until his death at 91 years old.

His ability to take darkness and turn it into light is what makes him the best representation for our Euphoria Series; it gives us hope that even through times of low moods and energy, we can still find moments of joy. Allowing ourselves to revel in these euphoric feelings gives us the much-needed hope that helps us move forward.
