Introducing the Newest Cannabinoid: THC-O
Have you heard of the newest cannabinoid THC-O?
THC-O is short for THC-O-Acetate. It’s similar to Delta-9-THC, but slightly different. The effects are reported to be more spiritual and introspective. But the medicinal benefits are incredibly effective when compared to straight Delta-9-THC. Studies have shown THC-O to be 300 percent stronger than Delta-9-THC.
However, it can take a little longer for the effects of THC-O to kick in. Since it’s not water soluble, the body has to convert the acetate molecule before it reaches the brain and interacts with cannabinoid receptors. THC-O is known as a ‘prodrug,’ which goes into the body as one compound and is converted and broken down into another form. Research on the cannabinoid goes back more than 50 years—THC-O has even been studied by the U.S. military!
Here’s one of our favorite reviews of THC-O from a Burman’s customer:
“I’m an avid Delta-8 and Delta-9 user, and I mostly use vapes or concentrate. I purchased the THC-O cartridge in WiFi OG (Sativa) and absolutely loved it! The taste was citrusy, but not overpowering, and the cartridge hit very smooth. The effects took about 30-35 minutes to kick in, and afterwards I had a very pleasant and spiritual experience. One of the times, I took it before bed, and ended up falling asleep before feeling the full effects, but it did produce very vivid and enjoyable dreams and a great night’s sleep. If you’re looking for something a little more potent than Delta-8, you’ll like this a lot!” -L.H.
If you’re looking for something really potent, THC-O might be the right choice for you.
