Where to Buy THC-O Online
Many people have heard of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC, often referred to as simply THC). While both compounds are found in the cannabis sativa plant, they have very different effects. THC produces a high, and CBD does not.
THC-O acetate, or THC-O, is the new kid on the cannabinoid retail block. Derived from hemp, the compound is said to be three times more potent than THC.
What is THC-O?
While THC-O has only recently hit the headlines, the compound has been around for a few decades. In fact, it was reportedly used in a military experiment in the 1950s to determine if it could be used to incapacitate enemies.
Essentially THC-O is an acetylated take on THC. Unlike THC and CBD, however, THC-O is a synthetic cannabinoid that can only be manufactured in a laboratory. While THC-O and THC have the same base structure, the addition of an acetate group to its molecules gives it more potency.
THC-O is a metabolic prodrug, which means it becomes active after it is broken down by the metabolic process. While THC takes between 15 and 30 minutes to take effect after it is taken orally, THC-O can take up to an hour to kick in. THC-O peaks around 20 minutes after the first effects are felt. When vaping, THC usually takes effect within minutes, while THC-O can take up to 20 minutes to start working.
What are the Effects and Benefits of THC-O?
While the effects of THC-O vary from person to person, they are comparable to those of THC, only significantly stronger. This is because both THC and THC-O work in the same way. Both compounds bind to the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain. Unlike other cannabinoids, however, THC-O binds directly to the brain’s CB1 receptors, giving it even more strength.
THC-O has a mix of both recreational and therapeutic benefits. In fact, the compound is often referred to as ‘the psychedelic cannabinoid’ due to its potential hallucinatory-like effects. In addition, many users have said that THC-O stimulates deep thought, profound relaxation, introspection and therapeutic states. Many users of THC-O also report experiencing euphoria.
Aside from its psychoactive effects, THC-O is also said to have medicinal benefits. These include reduction of stress, anxiety, nausea, pain and insomnia—all of which are normally associated with taking CBD.
What Types of THC-O Products are Available on the Market?
When first produced, THC-O is a thick brown liquid that is both odorless and flavorless. Just like other cannabinoids, the compound is used as a base ingredient. As such, THC-O products come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the most popular products include vapes, tinctures and edibles such as gummies.
Are There Any Restrictions Associated with Buying THC-O Online?
Under the 2018 Farm Bill in the US, cannabis with less than 0.3% of Delta 9-THC is classified as hemp, which makes it legal under federal law. Since THC-O is derived from hemp, it is technically legal on the federal level. It is also legal in most states. As such, companies have been able to legally manufacture and sell THC-O in US states that have favorable hemp laws.
