Our blog will help you understand what this cannabinoid is so that you know what you’re signing up for and know what to expect after consuming this cannabinoid. You will also have an idea of what type of effects this cannabinoid produces and how potent they are.
So without further ado, let’s dive right into it!
What Is THC-O?
THC-O also known as THC-O -acetate is a non-natural synthetic cannabinoid, meaning that it isn’t derived from hemp like other natural cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, and CBN. It is also considered much stronger than traditional weed.
The process of creating THC-O is dangerous and complex. You must first extract CBD from hemp and then remove the Delta 8 cannabinoid from it. After that, you add it to acetic anhydride, which will create THC-O. Acetic anhydride is a highly flammable chemical compound, which is why THC-O can only be created in labs by trained professionals and not at home by yourself.
Does THC-O Make You High And How Does It Feel?
Some researchers state that THC-O is more bioavailable and stronger than other forms of THC. So yes, THC-O does make you feel high.
Since THC-O has a high potency, its effects are strong as well. Some people who consumed small dosages of THC-O said that the effects are exhilarating and mildly sedative, whereas people who consumed larger dosages have said that the effects of THC-O are extremely psychoactive and psychedelic.
How Long Does It Take For The High To Kick In?
The effects of THC-O take a longer amount of time to kick in than THC and other cannabinoids and these effects last for at least 3-5 hours. However, the amount of time can also depend on the method of consumption, and the product of THC-O that you’re consuming.
For example, THC-O tinctures take about 45 minutes or even an hour for the effects to kick in after consumption, whereas Delta 9 Tinctures only take about 30 minutes to kick in. Similarly, THC-O vapes take 20 minutes to kick in while Delta 9 vapes only take about 10-15 minutes for the effects to kick in.
Is THC-O Legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill states that all cannabinoids including their products which are derived from Hemp and only contain 0.3% of THC are considered legal in the U.S. This means that THC-O is also considered legal because it comes from Hemp, even if it isn’t extracted the same way as other Cannabinoids. However, there are still some states in the U.S that have yet to legalize THC-O products and other cannabinoid products.
