Tetrahydrocannabinol-O-acetate (THC-O-acetate, also known as THC-O) is one of the most popular cannabinoids hitting shelves. THC-O is denoted as three times stronger than traditional THC. Some call it ‘the psychedelic cannabinoid’ because of its mind-blowing properties.
THC-O products are becoming increasingly popular in states where users do not have access to legal, state-licensed Delta-9 THC products. To generate THC-O, extractors take federally legal hemp and extract CBD. Then, they extract Delta 8 THC from the CBD and add acetic anhydride to the molecules. This final process removes all flavonoids and terpenes in the molecules and leaves only THC isolates, making the THC molecule stronger — much stronger than traditional THC.
What is THC-O?
THC-O Acetate is a cannabinoid derived from hemp. THC-O is a new, cutting-edge cannabinoid (derived from hemp), which carries psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings associated with the typical properties associated with cannabis use. THC-O is known for its anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, appetite stimulating and stress reducing properties.
How Strong is THC-O?
Many users report that THC-O is more potent than other forms of THC. Quality THC-O products come in a variety of forms, including tinctures, gummies, and disposables. The amount of THC in each product can vary widely, so it’s important to read the labels carefully and start with a low dose. Dosing THC-O can be challenging, but it’s important to keep track of how much you take and report any adverse side effects.
Is THC-O Legal?
Yes, THC-O is legal in many states. Since products contain only THC-O made from 100 percent hemp, brands can fully legally manufacture, distribute, and sell to consumers in the United States. Cannabis containing less than 0.3 percent Delta 9-THC is legally classified as hemp and thus is legal for all intents and purposes under federal law.
What is the Difference in THC-O and Delta 9-THC?
The main difference in THC-O and Delta 9-THC is federal and state legality. THC-O is fully federally legal and legal 41 states, while Delta 9-THC is federally illegal and illegal in most states. Both THC-O and Delta 9-THC produce euphoric psychoactive effects on users and carry a wide variety of medical and recreational benefits.
What is the Difference between CBD and THC-O?
The difference in CBD and THC-O (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is that CBD doesn’t carry the psychoactive effects that THC-O does. CBD can be used for numerous health reasons, but it will never give the consumer the psychoactive effects that THC-O and Delta 9 would provide.
