The first thing we need to look at is what THC-O is to better understand THC-O flower. Many people are familiar with THC. People are usually familiar with Delta-9 THC which is what we normally think of in marijuana that gives you the high or euphoric feeling. THC-O is another cannabinoid like other parts of the cannabis plant like Delta 8 or CBD. The main difference between THC-O and Delta 9 THC is the strength.
THC-O has existed since the 1940s when the U.S. Military first discovered it. At CBD Supply Maryland, we are particularly interested in this since it was discovered during experiments at a military facility in Edgewood, MD.
THC-O is technically known as THC-O Acetate, but is abbreviated as THC-O, THC acetate, and ATHC. 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.
