THC-O is known by several different names including THC-O Acetate, THC acetate, and ATHC. We at CBD Supply Maryland are particularly interested in THC-O because it was initially discovered by the U.S. military in Edgewood, MD.
While many have heard of cannabinoids like Delta-9 THC, Delta 8, and CBD they may not have heard about THC-O. Delta-9 THC is the cannabinoid that we are typically familiar with in marijuana. It is the part of the plant the gives you the euphoric or high sensation. We understand that this might be confusing for you. In short, it is an acetylated version of THC. The addition of Acetyl groups to molecules is often known to increase the potency by many magnitudes.
You may be wondering how much stronger THC-O is than normal THC. Reports indicate that it can be up to three times stronger than normal THC. One thing to keep in mind, though, with THC-O is that it takes longer to take effect. This is the case because your body must metabolize it differently than traditional THC.
