THC-O Products

THC-O’s appeal lies in its potency and its legal status. Research has found that it’s roughly three times stronger than conventional THC. It has been called “the psychedelic cannabinoid” for its potent effects. Because it’s derived from federally legal hemp, THC-O products are becoming increasingly popular in the states where consumers don’t have access to legal, state-licensed Delta 9 THC products.

THC-O is a minor cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It is known by several different names including THC-O Acetate, THC-O Distillate, and ATHC. What makes THC-O Acetate different from cannabinoids such as Delta 8 THC (D8) or Delta 9 THC (D9) is that:

  1. It has psychoactive effects that are reported to be more potent than both Delta 8 and Delta 9.
  2. In the THC-O Acetate molecule, an acetate group is chemically bound to the main THC molecule.

The result is that you get a form of THC that’s able to bind to the cannabinoid receptors at a higher rate, which might be the reason consumers report it to feel stronger than Delta 8 or Delta 9. However, everyone is different, so the effect you have may not be the same as someone else’s experience.

Do not assume that a tolerance for Delta 8 THC or Delta 9 THC will translate.

Since THC-O is acetylated, it is more stable and stays in the system longer. It takes longer to feel the effects if taken in edible form because it stays intact as it passes through the digestive tract. Due to the way it assimilates metabolically in the system, is part of the reason people report feeling “different” than a typical Delta 9 THC or Delta 8 THC high.

Because THC-O Acetate may be more potent than other forms of THC, if you’re trying it for the first time, we recommend starting at small doses, and then waiting 30-60 minutes to gauge your true tolerance.
