Are you interested in carrying a next-level product that your customers will rave about? If the answer is yes, what you're looking for is THC-O.
THC-O is short for THC-O-Acetate. It is the only currently available
version of THC that does not occur organically in nature. Instead, this substance is created under strict laboratory settings by introducing acetic anhydride to Delta 8 THC. The resulting THC-O is a synthetic that is as much as 300% as powerful as Delta 9 THC.
This product is safe to use, just like any other THC product. However, there are a couple of nuances that you should know and will want to pass on to your clients.
- Because of the power of the substance, you should only ingest or vape about 1/4 to 1/3 of the amount that you normally would of a Delta 8 or Delta 9 THC product.
- Because of the chemical makeup of this product, the body reacts differently to it than other THC products. More specifically, the effects of THC-O are not felt for at least 30 minutes or more and are regarded as a “creeper” that can catch up to you before you realize it.
What effects are experienced by the THC-O user?
Users report that they experience the same kind of “head high” as they do with Delta 9 THC. However, the experience is more intense, and some report a psychedelic trip, not unlike that of LSD. In addition, users report that the high has a more “spiritual” feeling to it. The user experiences a state where the mind and the body are completely submerged in an immersive and transcendent journey.
Is THC-O Legal?
Currently, THC-O falls into the same legal area as Delta 8 THC, HHC, and other cannabinoids that are not derived from marijuana. Therefore, on a federal level, THC-O is legal as long as the product that is made with the synthetic does not contain more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. This means that THC-O complies with The Farm Bill of 2018 and is federally legal.
However, each state has the ability to either follow the federal legal determination or create laws and restrictions of their own. In the case of Delta 8 THC, 17 states and counting have made the cannabinoid illegal. Because the substance has only been out for a short time, most states have not determined the legal status of THC-O. However, it is assumed that those states who have made Delta 8 THC illegal may also do the same with THC-O.
Can THC-O be made at home?
Absolutely not! The chemical process to make THC-O is highly volatile. Therefore, it must be made under laboratory conditions that follow strict protocols and should never be attempted at home.
The Quality of The Hemp Doctor Products
Just like with our entire line of CBD, Delta 8 THC, and other THC products, our THC-O offerings are also of superior quality. THC-O is created by first extracting CBD from the hemp plants then converting that CBD to Delta 8 THC. From there, we convert the Delta 8 into THC-O in a controlled laboratory environment.
Like our other products, we insist on using only hemp grown in the United States. Then we create the CBD that will eventually become THC-O using advanced scientific methods that leave no residual solvents or hydrocarbons. Finally, we test our THC-O products with an independent laboratory to ensure the purity of the product and the accuracy of its label.
You will not find a more pure, or higher quality THC-O product to retail than those we offer at The Hemp Doctor!
